For Christ sake...it's not about The Rock "needing" a title run or Punk "needing" to beat The Rock. It is about what the WWE title needs and what the WWE needs as a company.
Punk has done all he can to boost the title. The Rock, on the other hand, is the only person who can elevate it even higher than it currently is. And he is the only one who can garner the title mainstream attention.
It only makes sense that he carries it for a few months.
If the WWE knows they only have one more shot to have someone of The Rocks pedigree have a title run, then why the hell wouldn't they capitalize on it?
Again, the outcome of this match is NOT about what the title will do for the wrestler, it is about what the wrestler can do for the title.
Some people are still talking about who "needs" or "deserves" to win? Not understanding that the Jordan, Maradona, Jackson and Elvis of the wrestling industry is above all this little kayfabe BS. I guess they will never get it. Rock is doing this for fun, for him and his fanbase's enjoyment, any other detail about pointless, scripted W/Ls is completely irrelevant. If Rock thinks it will be a great moment for him to win the belt again, he's winning the belt. Just like he's appearing on SD from his hometown, nothing is more important for him than the rare crowd interaction he has in everything he does.

Always said that this is Vince's best promo of all time. He had some classics as he's one of the greatest performers of all time, one memorable is the one after JD 1998 when the roster was in the ring. But this is at the Top of the list. The way he created excitement on this level and blew the arena with only a Rock teaser was great. Crowd couldn't wait to see Rock again after 3 months, first time Rock disappeared for more than 2 weeks in a 4 year period. The amazing ovation in Philly the week after was one of the biggest the building has ever seen.

Maybe we can get a flashback of the inspiring little Angle and little Regal meeting Little Rock story :Rock

WWE has already ruined, buried, disrespected, and degraded the meaning and importance of the Rumble a long time ago. The last two Rumble winners went on to OPEN WrestleMania and one of those matches lasted 18 seconds.
