Pretty much this. If he starts facing the likes of Damien Sandow and Antonio Cesaro on RAW, he's just another guy. If you have to pay to watch him wrestle on PPV, he's a big fucking deal. So, keep him a big fucking deal. He should wrestle on PPV only.

Because it's anti-climatic?

Re: Will the Rock wrestle prior to the rumble, why not?

Nah, he shouldn't wrestle prior to the Royal Rumble. Hes too big to be wasted in a match on free TV. The objective is to get people to pay to see The Rock wrestle on PPVs to get a lot of buyrates. It's much more meaningful that way.

CM Punk is wrestling, and Punk is also needed for the match. He could get *re*injured during a match.

Rock isn't wrestling because they don't have to have him wrestle. He didn't wrestle prior to his match with Cena bar the tag match at Survivor Series 5 months earlier.

Punk-Rock mic segments are probably going to build the match better than having the two compete anyway, especially of last week's RAW is the benchmark.
Wrong.

Because The Rock Vs CM Punk will be one of the biggest money draws of the year why risk injury and lose all that money and have angry fans.

Also give something away for free when people are going pay for it 2 weeks later.


CM Punk - Dolph Ziggler - Daniel Bryan - Cody Rhodes - Damien Sandow - Seth Rollins - Wade Barrett - Dean Ambrose - Roman Reigns - Christian - Alberto Del Rio



Shawn Michaels - Stone Cold - Chris Jericho - The Undertaker - Bret Hart - Roddy Piper -- Mick Foley

Yokozuna - British Bulldog - Macho Man Randy Savage - Eddie Guerrero


Samoa Joe - Bully Ray - Sting - Austin Aries

Paul Heyman - Jim Cornette - Paul Bearer

If and I say when, since it will set up a rematch at WM the rock wins, dont you think its kind of a shit on Punks reign and the other people he has beaten for the Rock to turn up for once match in how long...and beat him, when everyone else lost

Thats nonsense, Cena still wrestled up to his match vs the rock.

Rock and Austin wrestled up into their matches at WM.

Also, they are wrestlers wrestling all week! Injury risks are always there

Not when your the biggest draw in wrestling.

Number 1 aim for WWE is to make money. So why risk that number 1 aim.

Re: Will the Rock wrestle prior to the rumble, why not?

Because him facing anyone other than CM Punk is pointless, and they wouldn't dare give that match away after all this build up.

Also this. We know there's zero chance of him losing until he faces Punk, so why bother. It's not like Rock needs to be built up or anything.
