Re: what if Cm Punk Beats Rock
I think it would be fantastic for WWE to use Brock Lesnar at Royal Rumble. He can interfere in the title match, costing the Rock. The Rock could then have some jawing matches with Heyman and Punk (hopefully very little with Lesnar).
Punk's retention doesn't help or hurt. I don't see The Rock taking the belt to Hollywood with him, because by the time he is back to shooting movies, he will have lost the strap anyway. Punk cheating (again) to keep the belt will obviously upset some of the Punk haters, but I think it just adds to his character's weasel-ish attitude.
This all would set up some card changes.
Punk vs Cena for the WWE title
Brock vs Rock
Triple H vs...?
Big Show vs Ryback
Team Hell No vs Rhodes Scholars
Sin Cara vs Rey Mysterio
I am just stuck on where this Undertaker "not being done" (according to Hunter) leads. Maybe he will face The Shield, 3 on 1? I don't know. I just dont want to see Undertaker vs HHH again. Their previous encounters have been beyond incredible, and I would hate to see them have the shine taken off by overdoing it.
As for the rest of the card, I think it is already as top heavy as can be, just with Punk, Cena, Taker, Brock, HHH, The Rock. In my dream world, Taker would face Brock, The Rock vs Cena vs Punk for the WWE belt, while HHH sits out this year, but there doesn't appear to be a good opening to get Brock and Taker together for a program, but we will see.
