They won't be getting that many for the rematch, that's for sure.

That's not my fault or my problem. They saw the inevitable coming and ignored the fact that Taker, HHH, HBK, Edge, Batista, Jericho (and now Cena and maybe even Orton) aren't going to be there forever and would probably leave (on their own or not). Now they have the problem of bringing in part time old stars to make the Mania show look at least somewhat interesting but they'll be gone and they'll get a year older if brought back again. Quit fucking around and start getting your shit together because the honest truth is you're not competing against a promotion, company, or sport anymore. You're competing against your relevancy. Yourself.

I love that argument. It's so ass-backwards it.. still doesn't make sense.

Was it 1.3M for Rock/Cena, or 1.3M for WRESTLEMANIA featuring Rock/Cena, HHH/Taker, etc. ??

They'd do a similar number for any Rock match at Mania, co-headlined by Brock, Taker, Trips.

The Rock vs John Cena was the main attraction of WrestleMania 28 and was also announced a year in advanced. So yes, Rock vs Cena should mainly get credit for the 1.3 million PPV buys for WrestleMania 28. Just like how Hogan vs Rock gets credit for the WrestleMania X-8 buyrates and rightfully so.

Exactly, and Rock vs Cena did just that. I agree.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Rock versus anyone last year would have drawn... it had been so long since he wrestled at one that that was the draw.

As for how Rock/Punk could have done at WM this year... fantastically. They've already proven the feud will be better than Cena/Rock. Punk will not be shackled by some fear of making Cena less "family" fraindly that held him back in the feud. We've already seen it in one promo that this feud will be something special. But then, Punk is one of the best mic workers in the business. When people compare him to Piper, there is a reason. Man.. Piper and Punk in their primes would be the greatest feud of all time probably... just off the fact the arena would melt at the furious promos week in and week out.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace


Raw is like watching Dexter's finale every week... why did I do that to myself for so long?

While true, Rock taking on John Cena was pretty big considering the fact that Vince was trying to make this match happen for a long time now. Once it was announced as the main event of WrestleMania 28, it gave many casual fans something to look forward to at WrestleMania. My point is that Rock vs Cena was the main attraction going into WrestleMania 28. That match alone was a pretty big deal even if the build-up gets a lot of flock by some. It was the match with the most buzz and should be credited for the 1.3 million PPV buys for WrestleMania 28.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

I love Bleacher Report's "WWE Royal Rumble 2013: Why CM Punk vs The Rock will steal the show" headline. Well no shit. It's CM PUNK vs THE ROCK. Why wouldn't it steal the show?

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

The Rock vs. CM Punk IS the show. They don't have to steal it. But it's bleacher report.


Much gratitude to

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Monday will be key for the 20th Anniversary of RAW. If the Undertaker returns, then I don't think Punk will be his opponent and it could very well be Lesnar. But then who would be left for Cena to face? I mean, he could be inserted in the Punk/Rock feud and make it a Triple Threat Match at Mania for the title but that would just suck because Cena doesn't have to be in the Punk/Rock feud just to give Cena ANOTHER main event slot. And HHH isn't really needed for Wrestlemania.
