The Rock vs CM Punk - Lesnar and Undertaker intervene....

Hypothetical: The Rock vs CM Punk at Royal Rumble

Most have The Rock pegged to win the belt. What if Lesnar interfered, cost The Rock the belt, and set up The Rock vs Brock at WM? That leaves CM Punk claiming he "won" and without an opponent and boom - lights go out, Tombstone from The Undertaker, as they feud about how if Punk wants "respect" he can earn it by ending The Streak. (Or at least having a good match with the GOAT)

Would people rather see this, or Rock win the belt, and drop it to Cena at WM?

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

I know I said in the "Who should Punk drop the title to?" thread that The Rock is the only person he should drop it to, but I've changed my mind. The more I think about it, the more I love the idea of longest title reign in 25 years vs. the streak. I would prefer Punk to go over Rock and face Undertaker at Wrestlemania, then see Rock take on Lesnar which would be just as great. That's one hell of a card. One thing I absolutely do not want to see is Rock/Cena II.






best.

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

Punk/Taker for the belt doesn't work, Taker can't carry the strap.

If they could somehow still hold off doing Punk/Ryback again and build its momentum + add some star power like Mayweather and Stone Cold I'd happily take that as a WrestleMania Main Event if Ryback is up to it. Brock/Rock II and Cena/Taker I as the undercard would be epic overall.

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

Only things suitable for Punk at Mania ;

vs Taker (W/or Without Title)
vs TRIPS (W/ or Without Title)
vs Rock (W/Title)
vs Cena (W/Title)
Some Bullshit Triple Threat Main Event.

only things suitable for Rocky :

vs Cena II
vs Lesnar
vs Taker
vs Punk
Some kind of ridiculous triple threat

Only things suitable for Cena :

vs Rock II
vs Punk (Title)
vs Lesnar
vs Taker (IMO VERY unlikely, saved for XXX)
Bullshit fucking triple threat

Only things suitable for Taker :

vs Punk
vs Cena
vs Brock
vs Rock

only things suitable for TRIPS :

vs Punk
vs Brock

Only things suitable for BORK :

vs Rocky
vs Trips
vs Cena
vs Taker

So REALLY, the entire card centers around whether Trips wrestles or not (HE WILL), because there's realistically only two options for him because a Cena/Taker/Rock match obviously isn't going to happen. So either...

A: Assuming Trips faces Punk
(Taker won't wrestle a Triple threat) Taker vs Lesnar
Rock vs Cena

B: Assuming Trips-Brock II
Taker-Punk
Rock-Cena

I like both options TBH ... A triple threat match means one of the "BIG SIX" not competing more than likely. We're headed for a BIG TIME triple main event @ Mania (not even including the WHC match)

I agree with you, I don't like triple threats, but I'm totally against of having Rock/Cena and HHH/Lesnar AGAIN! Two rematches would be a big let down for me. The road to WM would be so boring. I would preffer HHH doesn't wrestle at all and have this:

Taker vs Punk

and

Rock vs Lesnar vs Cena

Either of them would be for the title.

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

if Rock loses to Punk I can't see WWE have him lose at another PPV, which makes me lean towards they'll do the Lesnar interference finish at the Royal Rumble

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

Ridiculous "report" for the simple fact that WWE had months of house shows headlined by Big Show vs Cena or Big Show/Ace vs Cena just THIS YEAR. No chance they're thinking about another Rock/Cena non-title(they have no reason to do it, kayfabe or business wise), let alone a Taker/Punk match which will look as comical as it sounds on paper. Rock is hyping his title win big, he's going over. He promised and hyped that you're going to see him WWE Champion again, that's the final payoff of this story which is why someone costing Rock the Rumble match and then Rock just moving on from his championship journey would look stupid. Rock is going over at Royal Rumble 100%. Only way he's not is if they do a DQ finish and then Lesnar wins the belt somewhere until WM, Rock/Brock for the belt with the final payoff of Rock holding the belt again at Mania instead of the Rumble. Then you have the possibility of Rock/Taker with Rock moving on from the belt to go after a bigger accomplishment that nobody had before in the streak. But Rock holding the title is 99.999% lock, in one way or another.

Rock may have to relive Judgment Day 2000.

Then when he's about to face Taker, you'd want Punk to win and keep the title a little longer. Then you say he should drop the title to this guy and when it comes to crunch time, you say Punk should hold it a little longer. Basically, you don't want him to ever lose the belt.

Just do the match the way it's been planned for months and months. Punk drops the tile to Rock. Who the fuck cares if the title isn't defended on house shows. Who seriously goes to house shows to see the title be defend? You know you aren't going to see it change you know nothing dramatic is going to happen with the title.

People don't go to WWE house shows to see the title be defended. They go to see John Cena.

Like Headliner says, just put Cena in the main event and all will be fine. Jeez. They think it's 1960 or 70 still.
