Punk will win the Rumble and face Bryan, who would be champion.

They obviously won't main event Mania. Their match ain't big enough.

Their matches were boring to me, maybe from a pure wrestling perspective they were good but beyond that they did absolutely nothing for me. I wouldn't rate any of the matches they've had together any higher than three stars.

There was some report with the rumored Mania card, and it was something like Punk/Bryan, Taker/Brock, and Cena/HHH.

As far as the actual likelihood of the match... or that card happening as it is... I don't think is very high. However Punk and Bryan right now are by far the two most over babyfaces on the roster, and they're actually really close. Heck, the crowd reaction for their staredown at MITB this year says it all for how the fans would react to these two. I think the idea of it being a Hogan/Warrior-lite type of match (at least in terms of crowd reaction) and the fact WWE is completely separating them right now is probably what's causing the idea that their paths will eventually intertwine, and by Mania time, collide in a big face vs. face match for Mania, and if for the title, the main event.

The two main things working against it are:

1) Punk/Bryan has happened a number of times already, twice on PPV, and even though the atmosphere/feud for the potential Mania match would be different and probably better, it's hard to imagine a match between the two, at this point, being the main event of Mania. It could work though if they have Taker/Brock to actually sell the event/reel in some outside fans, but still...

and

2) This Corporation storyline should really lead to Bryan vs. HHH at Mania. HHH screwed Bryan at Mania and since then people have wanted Bryan (along with Show and now Rhodes) to get his hands on HHH, probably in a match. Mania would be the perfect time to do it and give Bryan a huge win, a win bigger than one over Punk would do. At this point in time as well, it makes a lot more sense than Punk vs. Bryan. If they went with this though, the only possible combo of matches I could see happening is Punk/Lesnar II and Taker/Cena (which isn't totally unbelievable, but it feels like all reports have hinted at Taker/Cena not happening and Taker/Lesnar almost definitely happening, so it does make me wonder what they'd do if not Taker/Cena in that case).

I do think one way or the other, we're gonna get Punk vs. Bryan, face vs. face, at one of the big 4 PPVs. When though? Not sure, but they should capitalize on the popularity of the two no later than Summerslam next year imo.

Good thing i don't care about buys. As long as they have a compelling story and an amazing match then i'll be satisfied.

Main event is the money match that draw and sell tickets. Cena/taker, rock/lesnar, punk/austin etc... these are your money matches that would main event mania.
Right, which brings me to this. If Bryan/Punk couldn't main event over Cena/John freaking Laurinaitis, what are the odds that it would close the show over Brock/Taker (as well as what Cena does, probably match with HHH) or even worse, Cena/Taker?

@Sandrone: Appreciate the writing but too lazy to read through your fantasy booking of "what will probably happen". I can understand talks of the match happening but in the MAIN EVENT? Lol, forget about it. It's almost as bad as those who say some shit about Bryan and Punk redoing the Benoit/Eddie embrace to close the show. That would be embarrassing and a parody of a real heartfelt moment.

As far as the Punk/Bryan not main eventing over Cena/Laurinaitis... that was wrong in itself, but again, the match would be a much bigger deal this time around as opposed to then. And Taker/Brock isn't closing the show because it's two part-timers and I still won't believe two guys who aren't even their most of the year closing the biggest show of the year until I see it. I'd be confident that while they'd use Taker/Lesnar as the main tool to actually get people to order the PPV, when it comes to what match closes, I could very well see Punk/Bryan closing the show over them if it's for the WWE Title. And for Cena/HHH, no way that match is main eventing Mania again as it was never THAT big of a match to begin with... so couple that with the fact it already happened in the main event of Mania before, I just can't see it happening unless it's for the belt. Now if Taker/Cena happened with Punk/Bryan... Punk/Bryan wouldn't close.

You shouldn't worry yourself. Chances are Punk/Bryan isn't happening at Mania anyway.

I think Punk could ultimately lose the Heyman feud and turn heel again by next year. Probably not the best thing but I could see it happening if they want to protect Ryback enough. But like... even with a full heel Punk it still makes no sense for him to face Bryan. Bryan has HHH lined up hook and sinker for him at WM. It would be funny if they pulled a reverse Summer of Punk and had Punk take HHH's spot in the main arc of the story and just cast HHH off to the side though


But anyways, It's just a dream WM match for some people and especially the IWC. The mark war in and of itself would elevate to something special/disastrous on here and it'd be HUGE.
WWE has pulled out random as fuck storylines around WM season to get dream matches on the card before.
Thing is here if WWE considers this to be worthy of all of that or not.

Punk AND Bryan are both draws, look at Raw's numbers, those two guys are the only ones that never lose viewers each week, so they are draws. Has anyone thought of the fact that maybe the two Summerslams were low with those two main eventing was because of Cena? nobody wants to see Cena in the main event as champion anymore. Most of the buys for both of those years (2011 and 2013) came because of Punk and Bryan....look at the whole year, Cena main eventing isn't a draw anymore....so its not Punk or Bryan that is the problem..
