How will it bring mainstream attention when your average casual fan will never see him with it?

Oh I'm sorry I forgot YOU have his schedule for January-April next year so you know how many times he'll be on Raw and his press tour schedules.

I don't need his schedule to know he won't be on much and will only wrestle on PPV...

I feel like they'll have The Rock win the gold so he can face Cena at Wrestlemania;, and because he will no doubt have an insane schedule around that time he won't be on RAW every week. So VInce will tell Rock to take the belt everywhere with him, to premieres and talk shows etc because Vince knows the fans will HATE that and totally turn on Rocky. It'll be another desperate ploy to get fans to side more with Cena and boo the Hollywood guy.

I say if they are going to continue to portray Rock as a Hollywood outsider in WWE then just let him actually be that character again. Let him be the opposite of Cena which in a way he already is but run with it. Cena's the white meat babyface who puts smiles on kids faces yet still gets boos. Have Rock be the Hollywood big shot heel even if he will likely receive cheers. I just don't want any more of this subtle attack on Rock's character like they did last time. If you want to make him look like the bad guy opposing Cena then do it the right way by letting Rock heel it up more imo.

Big difference though. Timing.

When JBL lost the belt to Cena WWE was actively looking for new stars. That Wrestlemania was about Cena and Batista taking over.

If Punk lost his belt to a young upcomer this year the match would be so far down the card it would barely matter. It's the 3rd biggest storyline on Raw alone with Rock and Taker dwarfing the coverage.

Punk's had a 300 plus day reign and it's barely mattered. Point is if it's not a Main Event storyline it's not going to create a new star. Punk pretty much has to drop his belt to an elite established superstar on a huge venue because otherwise the storyline just isn't big enough. With Cena, Taker, Lesnar, Rock there's just no room for Punk v "x" new star and expecting that match to create a new star. That has shades of Punk v Jericho all over it.

Because guys like Punk and Cena definitely haven't been if you've seen the returns on their PPVs.
Yeah, so many are ready to whine about The Rock not being full time, but so many will just completely ignore the fact that Undertaker does the same thing. In fact, The Rock probably wrestles 2 times a year and makes far more appearances for the WWE than Taker does. But that doesn't count right? Hypocritical jackasses.

O.K, I'm sure someone here knows, (I'm looking at you Rock3919) but how many episodes was Rock present for in the build up to WM28, because I remember him being there for all of them. And he was shooting a movie. I'm not saying he'll do house-shows and all that, but taking 3 hours out of one day a week seems pretty doable for The Rock.
