Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

If I was booking right now and had to pitch a realistic idea to them I'd say Punk loses at RR with a bit of Cena interference (Cena runs in with a replacement Ref after one has been taken out, Punk gets angry at Cena, Rock gets enough time to mount counter attack) and at E.C Rock has a singles match (maybe in the E.C Chamber against someone, maybe Bryan) and at WM, through Punk's insistence and rematch clause and Cena pulling Cena shenigans ("I reall want a shot Vince!") it's a triple threat.

They all fight, towards the end Cena tries to AA Rock only for Punk to low blow him. Rock and Punk square off, Punk clearly preparing for a Rock Bottom, however Cena is staggering up, they exchange a glance and double Rock Bottom Cena and end up getting a double pin-fall. GM comes out and says match will continue sans Cena, however as ref goes to restart Cena takes him out and hits an AA on unprepared Rock. Punk and Cena exchange glances, nod, Punk hits a GTS and the pair head up to top turnbuckles, then at the same time Cena does a "You can't see me gesture!" and Punk his "Best in the World" stance. Punk elbow drops and Cena fist drops and match is about to restart. Punk hits a Rock Bottom 1.. 2.. 2.5... Rock manages to get his arm up only for Punk to grab it, lock in the Anaconda Vice. Rock passes out and Punk gets to win the title.

It's not a full heel turn from Cena, Punk gets the moment he's earned, Rock doesn't look weak, enough boxes checked.

Now back to the real world Punk is not closing mania not now and not ever specially with The GOAT and Lesnar in the same card

There are only two scenarios in RR either Punk gets the biggest moment of his career by getting pinned clean by the great one or he retains by Lesnar helping him.

Having Rock/Punk before the Rumble will basically make the Rumble seem less important, as most people only care about Rock. If he's not in the Rumble, it shouldn't be last.
Seriously, has the rumble ever not been the ME? I am a huge ROCK mark and understand how valuable his spot is, but I still don't think anything should ME over the rumble, and then have Rock vs Punk rushed.

Several times, off the top of my head Angle vs. Henry, Edge vs. Cena and there were a few matchs back in the day. Stone Cold's first ever win was done prior to Michaels retaining the title against Undertaker.

It didn't in 1988, 1996, 1997, 1998 and in 2006 it was match number 4 out of 6.

And all of those times (except in 1988), a World Title match closed the show.

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

Rock Vs Punk is simply too big to not end the show. It's Rock's first title match in like 10 years and he's going up against Punk.

Having a mid-card Rumble main event over that isn't on, IMO.

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

That didn't necessarily have anything to do with the world title match actually being the biggest match on the card.

In 96, Bret vs Taker was the main, that's plausible.
In 97, since that was held in HBKs hometown, HBK vs Sid as the main was reasonable.
In 98, they did HBK vs Taker in the main for one reason only, to close the show with kane setting the casket on fire
In 06, again only reason Angle vs Henry went on last was to portray Takers magical powers.

If next year we Punk vs Rock on last, there'll be a really good reason behind it.

On the other hand, I wouldn't say that the Rumble match will be a midcard Rumble. There is a lot of potential in a Rumble match if they give a fuck about it which I don't think will be the case.

But anyway, look at the possible entries next year: Lesnar, Taker, Triple H, Cena, Ryback, Orton, Bryan, Kane, Miz, Del Rio, Show, Sheamus, Mysterio

How about the reason, it's the Rock, for the first time in about 10 years, competing for the WWE title. More then enough reason.

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

Kind of a misunderstanding here. I said there will be a good reason if it's the main event. And yes the reason being that it's the Rock, one of the top 3 biggest stars ever wrestling for the WWE title after 11 years.

But honestly I don't care which match will go on last. Fans at the event will decide which match is the main event like they did at Mania 18. That's all that matters.

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

The title match should be before the Rumble so the loser can enter the Rumble last and win it
