Punk called out The Rock in the parade he as Grand Marshall (interview). He said he going to get hurt bad and once he beats him than he will go back to Hollywood doing movies. He talked some more trash about him but didn't catch exactly what he said.
They essentially just promoted CM Punk vs The Rock on WGN(CM Punk was in the parade,lol,he had his own banner and everything too)
I know. they already passed Survivor Series as whoever wins will face The Rock at Royal Rumble angle and did it again at RAW, already having Punk/Heyman talk about it. I think its pointless for Punk to have a WWE Title match at TLC if they already pimping RR already since SS to them was the ending match to confirm RR title match. But Vince needs a WWE title match for buy-rates & attendance. Also think he wants Ryback in the main event at TLC, against Punk for the WWE Championship, since he is the face of the promotion poster.
This news about Rock showing up after the Rumble, it just further confirms that he has a role post rumble and chances of him sticking around get higher. It was just like earlier this year. Everyone going on and on about Rock not showing up weekly for the final Mania build, and slowly more and more of his dates came to light, and turns out the guy was on every single week when he returned, live( for all you old via satellite jokers out there). Including Mania and the night after. This is no different.
Feels good to see so many people doubt Rock and he proves them wrong. First people said he was only going to host not wrestle then leave again for 7 years, then people said well hes only doing one match then hes gone, he does a tag match and people said well after Mania hes gone, people said he wouldnt show up live for the final build to Mania, and he did. People said he was gone and yet he still has more involvement to come. The Rumble and Mania 29. It s like people just want to do everything they can to justify in their minds that Rock wont be there.
