The WWE title
I started thinking about what could happen over the next few months, and considered this idea. Obviously the big question is if The Rock will win the WWE title. I have individual scenarios explaining why he could, and why he won't. I will start by explaining why he may possibly win the WWE title this Royal Rumble PPV. I can't imagine he would headline a PPV, and not win.
If the WWE title were to be awarded to The Rock could this be the best publicity for the WWE itself? The Rock is the most accomplished Pro-Wrestler turned Hollywood actor of all time, and most already know that. Obviously with is schedule in Hollywood there is very little reason to assume that the would be able to defend that title often. Then I started to think of another big name wrestler who was too big for Wrestling at one point, and that is Hulk Hogan.
We rarely saw Hogan on our televisions while he was champion, and he wasn't really defending his title, or on very much to begin with. This is what made Hogan such a draw. You rarely saw him, so when he came around people packed the arenas nationwide to see. Today, most wrestlers are overexposed, and thus we take it for granted. Could The Rock pull off the same booking that Hogan was apart of during his huge success as Hulkamania ran wild? Imagine The Rock winning the WWE title, and then taking it everywhere he goes?
My reason for him not winning the title for me makes more sense than him winning it. CM Punk is the top title holder in the company, and I just can't see him losing it to The Rock. If CM Punk can defeat The Rock, then he can say that where Cena failed, he succeeded in beating The Rock, and not allow The Rock to tarnish the title, and taking it to Hollywood like it's some prop. The Rock has been notorious for putting other stars over, and he didn't need to put Cena over at Wrestlemania because John Cena is already established. CM Punk's career would take off, and it would cement him up there with the all time best.
