There were rumors a couple of weeks ago that maybe Rock won't be at WM 29 because of his obligations to promote GI Joe 2.

Even if you ignore that and think they can work it out I think it's very unlikely that WWE will have Rock as champ going into Wrestlemania if he can only make it every other week, and I think it's unlikely that a rematch happens with Cena 1-1 under those conditions as well.

I'm starting to think maybe they do pull the trigger on Cena v Rock at the Rumble 2 and Cena getting his win back there. Now you have 2 options. You can have Cena v Taker for the WWE Championship and Brock v Rock 2. Or you could do a Triple Threat Match between Rock, Cena and Punk with Taker v Lesnar at Mania. Option 2 is probally the more likely scenario but I like option 1 more.

The only potential problem with that is it involves Cena losing to Rock twice in a row. I hope they do it though, and then maybe down the line finally give Cena a clean win over Rocky, ala the Rock v Stone Cold feud.
There's a bigger problem with that as well. It either puts Lesnar or Cena in no man's land at Mania as well.

WWE is just not going to put Punk above Cena like that so I really this report is bs.

It's more that people (Rock marks) don't want Rock to put over Punk, and they think it would be a waste.

I personally don't care one way or the other. Punk vs. Rock is all I want to see. Who wins is irrelevant to me as Punk benefits either way.

Maybe my scenario is still possible, Rock destroying Punk on RAW as a revenge beatdown. Beats Cena at the Rumble(I want Mysterio there...), Rock/Brock and Taker/Cena for WM29 with both winners Rock and Taker agreeing to the ultimate match at WM30 the day after 29. That's money.
As much as I love that idea, it sends Punk back to no-man's land. While I know you don't have an issue with that, can't say I'd fully support this idea unless Punk was facing either Austin or HHH at WM29. If that was the case, this could work out. I suppose this card would work:

WM29:
Rock vs. Brock WWE Title
Undertaker vs. Cena
Punk vs. HHH/Austin
Mysterio vs. Sin Cara
Sheamus vs. Orton World Title

Even not considering Punk in this at all, I'm not sold on Rock and Brock competing for the WWE Title. I'd rather that be Taker/Cena, because at least Taker would maybe be around to lose the title back to Punk or somebody at the following PPV (though that I can put a mark on the Taker/Rock match). I wouldn't be sold on that either though if Taker won and just vacated the title the night after. That leaves Punk/HHH or Austin for the WWE Title, which would be a main event tier match indisputably even if it's still the third biggest match on the card like this year's WWE Title match. If it's Punk/Austin for the title it could be the biggest match on the card potentially. But in any event, it would be three top level money making matches happening on one Mania, which might rob the possibility of Taker/Cena main eventing later on. Same thing with Punk/Austin.

When it comes to speculation over the booking of The Rock, Cena, Punk, Taker, Lesnar, Triple H and who knows who or what else between Summerslam and Wrestemania XXIX, all one can really say is, "The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all."

I think that is true for many a Road to WrestleManias. We spend a great deal of time speculating on WWE's big plans but they can and usually do change like that all of the time.

The reality is Rock v Brock for the title really isn't even a plausible scenario. You just can't have a championship that's built once every other week, not have the championship being defended at Elimination Chamber, and have both competitors leave right after the match is over with.

I love the idea of Taker Cena and Rock Lesnar 2 but like you I agree it's gotta to be Cena v Taker for the Championship.

I have a hard time buying that the stars will align for Austin Punk. Ultimately this comes down to money and I don't see Vince paying Austin what he would for his return match when Rock and Brock are already on the card.

I'm really thinking it's Triple H v Punk at Mania and I think that's just fine for Punk.

Punk one way or another is working with The Rock. It would be best if Punk won the RR, beat Rock for the belt which he won from Cena at the RR and Punks becomes the biggest mega heel since HHH. Then you have a big heel star which you continue to build up until some young fresh face comes along, beats Punk for the belt and walla! new face of the company.

But WWE wont do that, Rock will beat Punk at RR, Cena beats Rock at mania to become champ, no one gets over, lol, fuck you.

If WWE did have a young star capable of being the face of the company John Cena is more than capable of putting that guy over. He could do that as face or heel too.

Your scenario really doesn't make sense because it makes Cena a clear second fiddle to Punk. Not going to happen.
