I would have zero problem whatsoever with The Rock winning the title then not appearing on every Raw until the Wrestlemania build like earlier this year.
I see no negative difference between that and the fact that nothing's happened with the WWE title for an entire year now. I can only see it as a positive because it's The Rock and it's something different.
I mean, holy shit~ the belt won't appear on the show this week~ Who gives a shit? The belt has been meaningless for months. The WWE title has become a footnote. It needs to have it's prestige restored imo. The Rock can begin the process by taking it away from CM Punk the losing it to someone.
