I'm not so sure about that. Rematches, if done correctly, can produce an even better buyrate than the original match did.
Take Ausin/Rock from Mania 17 for example. Unlike prior to Mania 15, they went all out with the build-up for this one and the end result was an even bigger buyrate than Mania 15.
They also had the rematch at Backlash which made this the third Austin/Rock match, not including their DX PPV match and all of their Raw matches. Still that did not hurt the buyrate for Mania 17, if anything it helped it.
And if they do Cena/Rock 2 for the WWE title, they probably will go all out this time. The build-up and thus the actual match as well as the buyrate may very well be better this time.
It seems however that a lot of people seem to forget that Punk/Taker is not the freshest of all pairings as well. They had a feud in 2009 already that turned out ugly for Punk. This is why I'm not looking forward to this match. I'd be a lot more excited for Cena/Rock 2.
