what fairytale were you watching ? the WWE title for the last 5 years was Cena's play doll, every champion who won it sooner or later drop it to Cena and was bumped back
only Punk managed to escape from that loop, and guess what ? the only Cena-included PPV he main evented (without Cena as his opponent) was at the Royal Rumble against The Rock!
Rock is holding the belt because he brings in eyes to the product, the fact that the ratings skyrocketed to a 3.7 on a three-hour show is enough proof for the man's starpower, so fucking what if he missed one RAW or a house show no one cared about ? big deal
he is justified to miss a show, he is PROMOTING the title FF's
yea i kinda skipped the last 5-7 years of wwe so thank god i didnt witness the "cena era"
wht i am trying to say is that rock cannot come and take titles whenever he pleases
the ratings ? that is vince's fault he should come up with better material
think about it in a business sense the rock comes for 6 months boost the ratings to 3 point whatver
after he leaves all those ratings will fall and by fall i mean sky dive into the 1 point something
vince needs to create a strong future not bring back a distant memory for a few months
in a previous post i mentioned that vince is doing a decent job of bringing back few superstars
yes he is .... all the others are good for ratings if not immediate like the rock atleast in the future 1-2 years
the ratings may improve because of them, but to think the rock is actualy helping the business is ignorance at its best
of course people will watch the rock for as long as his Highness please to be once he leaves like he always does wwe is going back to the satino BS ratings (with the exception of the returning superstars which may keep ratings to a low 2 plus
