Punk has been awesome. There is a possibility of swerving everyone and having Punk retain at the Rumble. I think for Rock vs Cena 2 to be successful it has to be for the title.
Is that even a swerve? Punk is undefeated over the last 13 PPVs. It's more like a boring intentional walk than a curveball.

Which is a really shitty conspiracy theory to pre-emptively make an excuse for why Punk's reign ended (when it should have several months ago). Rather than just admit it's WAY past time for a change in the WWE champ department.
It isn't something different either. There's been "backstage news" and "dirtsheet news" about supposed anti-Punk movements in the locker room or upstairs to end his reign early or to stop his push or to "hold him back", or some other dumb shit.
There's been no movement in place other than to keep the title ON him and to keep pushing him, not to take it off and "hold him back".
