Re: Why were the Shield not revealed at Royal Rumble? And other observations.
1. Punk would have been stripped of the belt on the spot is why The Shield were not revealed.
2. Yes, reading too much into it, it's just a method to increase buy rates, people wanted to see Rock win the title so he promised it would happen so they buy the PPV.
3. It was an odd way to end a 400+ day reign, especially after the emphasis The Rock had put on his Rock Bottom ending the match in promos last week.
4. Not really, was just a feel good moment for he and his family.
