Re: Why does Rock get a title shot? Jw

you know when you win the RR you "keyfabe" main event Wrestlemania ? well it's a reverse situation now, Rock won the main event of Wrestlemania so he gets to main event the Royal Rumble

that's from the keyfabe standpoint

Re: Why does Rock get a title shot? Jw

Because he's The Rock
Because he beat Cena at Wrestlemania 28.
Because it will make a shit load of money

Anyone who fails to see why having The Rock face the WWE champion at the RR is a good thing are completely deluded.

A champion who won't be there to defend it is more than devaluation, it's just wrong on all levels.

Actually, i'm guessing The Rock will defend the title at every ppv until he loses it, which will probably be WM29.

100% but WWE aren't creative anymore so making Punk vs Miz/Ziggler/Big Show etc without a great storyline isn't going to draw so instead you just chuck your two top guys and hope it draws on name alone. They gave Punk 2 feuds which had stories, Jericho (which was OK at best) and Daniel Bryan which was horseshit and lowered Punk IMO.

what I find weird is WWE are now targeting a whole new set of fans so the idea of ripping of concepts from 10-20 years ago should be fine with a new twist added. I mean you could atleast make us feel like Punk's title matches before he got to Cena were important but they never had that feeling.

I mean imagine Miz as a corporate heel with Ace and a heel stable, is it a rip off, yeah? so what if its entertaining. The Punk heel turn could have been incorporated into an actual feud with the pay off coming against Rock instead of it just feeling random like a double turn with him and Bryan.

They could do all these things to make these on paper smaller feuds feel really big and important so when you do Cena/Punk it feels massive instead of giving us shit and then saying "OK well filler season's over so we'll now give you Cena/Punk but even than this is filler season until the important people like Rock/Brock/Taker comeback"

The product basically feels like filler baring WrestleMania season.

Re: Why does Rock get a title shot? Jw

Has the WWE Champion CM Punk ever beat Cena clean? Rocky has
Punk is a +300 days champ, who is left for he to face?
Rocky is one of the biggest stars ever and is more over than the current champion
Even the marks who think ressling is real know that WWE wants to make money and that The Rock makes money
He is the Rock
He is the great One
You don't think he deserves a title shot?
well... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWn0OCs0h-E

At first I also thought that he didn't deserve it, but look at the facts


I don't love John Cena, in fact I don't even like him. But I hate the idea that he is the worst! Cena doesn't bury talents. Talents go down the card after Cena because feuding with Cena... is the highlight of their career. Deal with it.

Re: Why does Rock get a title shot? Jw

He earned the title shot, I suppose, by defeating John Cena at Wrestlemania. I guess a win over Cena puts you at the top of the tree.
