When you are the champion, you are EXPECTED to appear because it just makes sense that way. People don't assume Punk or Cena aren't going to be there just because they aren't promoted on FB or twitter. The Rock may be a part-timer, but as champion, he's EXPECTED to appear since he has the top prize in his possession.
And in regards to your second paragraph which I removed from the quote, what does it even have to do with Punk? It's funny how you bring him into the conversation even though I didn't say a word about him.
