Re: Will The Rock work at Elimination Chamber?

I'm not expecting him to be at Elimination Chamber at all but if he does win the title at the Rumble then I'd hope he works the Chamber otherwise it would just make a mockery of the WWE title.

This, probably.

Though I'd love to see him in an EC.

Re: Will The Rock work at Elimination Chamber?

No, Rock is not working meaningless B PPVs, the main event will be EC for the N1C, probably for the WHC or a match like Kane/Cena this year.

What kind of half-assed champion would that make him, though

Only work hard on the big PPVs? How about working hard your entire reign

That would make him a smart "champion", because there's no reason to sacrifice a rare Rock PPV appearance on a show that nobody cares about and is just a distraction between Rumble and WM. What do you mean "working hard"? wrestling matches? He will do it when it's the right time(Rumble and WM), he's not working full time with this company. For the same reason Lesnar and Taker aren't going to work these PPVs.

If you're WWE Champion you work every PPV or he might as well hand in the WWE title and go back to the original schedule of showing up for special matches. No Champ is bigger then the WWE, and the Rock agrees with that.

The only significant thing about him potentially becoming champ is to see have him do a semi-pro run again. Otherwise it really wont affect buy-rates just to have him be the special attraction they used him as last year.

Re: Will The Rock work at Elimination Chamber?

A lot of wrestlers didn't work title matches when they were champions, and nobody before was in a situation or position like Rock is in now. Rock IS bigger than the WWE or their title, that's the thing I don't think some people understand, he's working with the company, not for them. The significant thing is watching Rock winning the title after 10 years, that's the important thing and biggest aspect of this storyline. The affect on the buyrates should be Rumble and WM, not EC, that's a dead show for years now which is why Rock is not going to work on it and Vince is still not that crazy to even ask him to do it. He will be semi-regular from Rumble to WM29, like last year when he worked 7 shows in a row.

Re: Will The Rock work at Elimination Chamber?

No and it is good on both WWE and The Rock's part actually.

If Rock was involved we would all know he would win. Secondly Rock would not enter a high risk match like that when he has a big movie schedule. As champion at that time, he will attend RAWs but nothing else. They will use Cena/Punk and a few others as the house show attractions.

As for WWE's part, it saves them money by not having him appear and it makes his name more attractive for the #1 PPV of the year, WrestleMania 29. They are going to try and use Rock on this part-time basis as much as they can to help their buyrates as a decent WrestleMania number makes up a huge portion of their revenue.



Thanks Punk
