^the first row is dull compared to rows behind.

It's human nature. Never satisfied.

Possible Swerve With The Rock + Possible Top 4 Matches For WM 29

- Regarding The Rock winning the WWE Title from CM Punk, there is a lot of talk that the title change won't happen at the Royal Rumble. Instead, Rock would win the title at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view in the Chamber main event.

- As noted, the top four matches for WrestleMania 29 are booked and not likely to be changes. This isn't confirmed but those four matches may be The Rock vs. John Cena, Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar, Sheamus vs. Randy Orton and CM Punk vs. The Undertaker.

It's said that the rest of the card is still up in the air.

I hope that's true since that would both be clearly more unpredictable booking than The Rock just coming back and winning right away, plus that it will be a more natural extension of the Punk vs Rock feud which of course means more awesome promos.

As for the other report I can't say that I'm ecstatic about Rock vs Cena again. The last Raw alone made it even more obvious how Cena just couldn't get any intensity into that feud.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Don't believe either of those reports tbh. I think Rock will either win it at the Rumble or not at all. If they are gonna keep the title on Punk until the Chamber then why not keep it on him until Mania? It would make whatever match he is in much bigger and Rock would only lose the title there anyway (Mania). A 5 week reign seems pointless to me.

And I don't believe they would go with that card, it's pretty much the worst combination they could do with the guys they have available. But I guess we'll see soon enough.

Apart from avoiding predictability I'd say that one point to it is that it will make Rock give Punk a bigger rub in a story that still has Rock as the final winner. The Rock is in no danger of losing his popularity and I'd say that it's probably more necessary overall to have him help the #1 heel than it is to give a rub to Cena.

I'm not expecting it to happen though, but I do think it would be the better choice. Another factor of what would be best is of course also how much The Rock can be on Raw from now to WM. It's hard to take into account though since we have no idea.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Both sides of the "Mark Wars" here should be ashamed of themselves for the stupid shit I'm reading as regarding to the promo on Monday. Seriously, log off.

I will say this. CM Punk vs. The Rock has to be the WWE Championship match at Wrestlemania 29 and it has to be the main event. No John Cena. No Brock Lesnar. No Triple H. No Undertaker. Nobody involved but these two. This is already better than Rock/Cena in the promo department and we have THREE. WEEKS. LEFT. Holy fuckery.

Nobody wants Rock/Cena II and who the fuck wants it after....THAT on Monday?

Only chance of that report is the other way around. Rock wins the belt at Royal Rumble, the big PPV which is promoted around his title chase after 10 years. Then losing at EC in a Chamber match due to a Brock interference setting up Rock/Lesnar at the WM29 main event AND giving the payoff of Rock winning the belt again. Looks to me like the perfect booking without having to worry about the belt after Mania. Rock is going over at the Rumble either way, it's just the question of EC/WM/Lesnar/Cena afterward.

Yeah just because it's unpredictable doesn't mean it's good, either for the story or for business (:hhh)

And like I said if Punk is to win at the Rumble that's fine, but to then have him lose it at the Chamber would be a bad decision. Giving Rock the title for a few weeks just to put over Cena would be stupid, it would massively devalue whatever Punk does at Mania too.

Chamber isn't going to do nearly as well as the Rumble either in terms of buys so I find it hard to believe they'd put the title on Rock for the first time in 11 years when there is like 200,000 people watching compared to half a million at the Rumble.
