Not really. He's a much bigger star in Hollywood and to the general mainstream today compared to 6/7 years ago. Everyone knows who he is today. He came back at the right time last year (can't believe it's soon to be 2 years). With Fast Five on the way, his star power was bigger than ever and now that his movie career has hit its peak, him becoming WWE Champion will bring some much needed relevance to WWE that nobody else from the roster can. (including Punk, who's star power is nonexistent)

Unless a face Cena takes it away from him, a big star will be made.

Rock was too much into his Hollywood career at that time and besides, Vince was more interested in making Cena the next big babyface of the company than bringing The Rock back.

Exactly. Rock taking that belt to Hollywood gives the exposure Vince has been begging ever since;

A. Rock became a big star.

B. The ratings went to hell.

you'll all see when your precious ratings don't go up even with rock there. further proving its the entire product that needs an overhaul.

If Flair can put asses in seats, I think Rock can also. But Feuding with Punk, I'm pretty sure he will get the praise.

To the point that a 2.5 is considered "okay" nowadays. Since Punk appeared about 3-4 times every week when ratings were at their lowest and they have gone up in the past few weeks when he's made minor 5 minute appearances, it's safe to say he's a flop that failed to deliver on par with the expectations for him. It's not all his fault, but he's certainly at fault and there's only so long you can use the "shit product" as the scapegoat.

And comparing him to Tensai just shows what a flop he is. That you have to compare him to someone who was doomed from the start with a stupid gimmick to prove he's not a flop... lol.
that might not make him the biggest draw (In your opinion, personally i think there are numerous other reasons why the ratings are going down), but it doesn't mean he flopped. He has pretty much been carrying WWE for the last year, and he is one of WWE's successful top main eventers. 'Flop' is not the word you should use.

Rock winning the WWE championship would be major bullshit. Now I understand, WWE will get huge business with Rock as WWE champion all over Hollywood with the media and all. But seriously Punk has had an epic title reign that is about to hit 400 days. That's a huge milestone especially when you take the fact that the WWE title changed hands in 2011 more than AJ changed boyfriends. Now I'm not saying I'm completely against it, but they can use it to propel a superstar like Kofi to the top and see how he runs with it. I for one think that Kofi can show a lot of personality if given the opportunity. If not, they're also missing out on an epic match with Punk vs. Taker (Title Reign vs. Streak).
