I can see the logic of having the championship match go on 1st.

Let's say Cena is booked to win the Rumble. No need to watch Rock Punk because we already know the outcome.

The PPV is more unpredictable with the Rumble going on last. You legitimately walk into the Punk Rock match not knowing whose going to win. Rumble becomes a bit more predictable but the door is still open for Ryback, Sheamus or Orton to win and go after the World Title.

The ONE thing Rock has never done is win a championship at Wrestlemania. I can't believe more Rock fans wouldn't want him to do that. Losing at Rumble won't hurt Rock, winning the title at WM would be an even bigger deal for him though. He is the only top star of the modern era to never do that, this is the perfect opportunity for him to do it.

A rematch with Rock/Cena can be better, but I wouldn't mind Ryback/Punk if Punk and the WWE hasn't killed all the momentum they created for him a few months back.

The build could be better though. Last year they had to work with a no contact rule. This year they can actually get physical with each other.

It's like others have pointed out with the championship design. Rock figuratively trashing Cena's belt is something they can do.

Rock winning the belt at Wrestlemania and dropping it the next day or at Backlash is not going to help anyone.

Rock winning the belt and dropping it at Wrestlemania actually puts that guy over. I know it's upsetting to you that guy's name is John Cena and not CM Punk but we all know who the true face of the WWE is.

Cena is the guy that has to make this work I mean The Rock can do something like that but if it doesn't get Cena to not come out like this then it doesn't matter. That is what ruined the feud they had last year. At least while they are stretching it a little bit Rock/Punk has some intensely.

Cena beating The Rock at Wrestlemania doesn't even make sense to me from a business point of view, the buyrate WILL fall, even with The Rock there. Last year, the return of old Rock fans who had given up watching wrestling and casuals influenced the buyrate, no doubt. They got the chance to see their hero on the greatest stage of all again, with the slim chance that he would win. This time, if it is Cena v Rock 2, there is little chance those same casual fans are gonna buy Mania again when they know, 100% this time that Cena will win it, this is all IMO, of course.

While I don't think that is all false I think their are enough casual fans that are into Rock/Cena just for the name value as well as Wrestlemania. I don't think they will match last year numbers but I don't think they are going to be that far off maybe just under a million buys.
