Rock can get heat but I'm not sure it would be worthwhile to book him that way. It would be entertaining in either role; just more effective promotion wise as a face at this point. With that Foley point you brought up I can actually see Heyman dropping Punk but only to get the WWE Title on Brock.

No reason for Rock to be a heel but if they're doing the pointless Rock/Cena rematch, then someone needs to be a heel this time, and Rock coming to RAW in a suit and limo "just because he has a few minutes of free time" would be a tremendous character. Rock was never in a position to be a babyface in the Cena program, WWE did everything they could to turn the crowd on him, they used every manipulation trick in the book, from trying to lie about his passion to attack babyface Foley while presenting his opponent as a poor victim who works hard. Rock is on a red carpet, 3-4k in Mexico smiling and signing autographs - Cena is doing Make a Wish charity and saying that he is never at home. Everything was for one reason and that's to get Cena over, which failed miserably because he only got more and more heat which peaked in Miami for WM weekend at WM28 and RAW. They wanted to give you every reason to hate Rock and love Cena which cost them buys for WM. It was really a pitiful process.

Anyway, Rock appearing on RAW like this:


Reality based, saying that he's The GOAT, bigger than wrestling and all the fans and kids in the locker room should be grateful that he even agreed to lower himself and save this place. Money. Can be a GOAT character. Although the crowd is begging to cheer and sing along and he's doing record business everywhere so it's really unnecessary. But with a possibility of Rock/Cena again, this can be awesome.

Current WWE not ready for that greatness of a character.

The easiest way to pull off the heel turn would be Brock Lesnar interfering on Rock's behalf.

It would blindside everyone because of the expectation for Brock to cheat on the behalf of CM Punk due to his allegiance with Heyman.

I just don't see how they can tie this to John Cena and Punk should stay heel just in case they can pull together an Austin match whether that be at 29 or 30.

Would this lead to a grudge match at Mania between Lesnar and Punk? Then a rematch between Rock/Cena?

Boy, there really is no realistic way around a Rock/Cena match is there

Lets say Rock beats Punk at the Rumble to set up a title match wih Cena like we all predict.

Well how are they going to deal with Punks rematch clause? Surely Rock won't wrestle at Elimination Chamber? And they're not giving away a free tv match.

Makes me think they may do a triple threat at Mania. Cena can still pin Rock to get his win back and keep Vinny Mac happy.

And it makes the fued/match fresher.

There's no money in a 3 way. In general. And Rock/Cena is a better option if they go with that combination. Still hope for Rock/Brock :Rock2

No doubt, they should do a blockbuster with this character. Imagine the reaction of the audience when they hear the "IF YA SMELL..." going crazy, then Rock in a suit walks out slowly with the arrogant smirk cutting a promo on how inferior they're and how grateful they should be just to be in his presence. Pure money. But Rock as a babyface is a machine formula and like he said on the Rock/Cena DVD. It's the opportunity for him to perform in front of a new audience, especially with the kids fanbase, and to come out the larger than life greatest of all time as the heroic People's Champion is a better presentation than the Hollywood Rock character. At least for now.

I agree that Rock Vs Cena needs a babyface and a heel.

But WWE seen how much money they've made from the fued with them both being babyfaces, I don't see them changing anything.

Give Rock the Hollywood gimmick and he'd get a ton of heat, but he'd be too funny to hate or dislike.

I just think they should go with Brock Vs Rock at WM. It's the biggest match they can put on and it's so easy to get that feud started.

Just have Brock screw Rock at RR and Punk retains. Bang. There is your feud.

I must be one of the only people who don't think Rock-Cena will happen again at 29, everyone seems to think it's set in stone but I don't see it. Like I've been saying for months I still think Lesnar will interfere at the Rumble to set up him vs. Rock. I can't see any way for Rock to win the title because that would mean he would be at every Raw and that seems impossible given his schedule. And there's no way they are gonna put Punk over Rock clean, that honour will be saved for Cena (at some point).

And a DQ/Heyman interference or dusty finish isn't gonna satisfy anybody, that's the only way I can see it going down.

So Rock/Brock, not sure where that leaves Taker/HHH/Cena/Punk though. Tag team match to open the show?
