He's going over at Royal Rumble because it's the right thing to do and I'm sure that Punk respects the fact that Rock is the reason he held the title for 400 days. Besides geeks like Ziggler, any current performer thanked Rock for giving them the extra exposure, the privilege to perform in sold out arenas and the bigger paychecks. Orton, Miz, Rhodes, Sheamus, Kofi etc.

One thing I hated about the SD promo is how they edited the "candyass" which sounded horrible. The reaction for Rock was huge but they still put their SD noise, ridiculous production.
Explain why Rock going over "is the right thing to do". There's not a thing right with it. The wrestlers will still get their big payday, and Vince will still get his buyrates, simply by the Rock being on the show - so why does he need the win, when it makes no difference? Also I'm sure the roster respects Rock, but I think their respect would go through the roof, if he put Punk over clean - which truly is the right thing to do... and Rock should know this better than anybody. Actually, IYAM, Rock is a tad out of order, for even asking for a title-run - if that is indeed what happened.

Why do peeps speak of his title run as if he got it for any other reason other than to lose it to Rock? Without that match he wouldve never held the title this long.

Once again fans dont realize without Rock wanting the title Punk wouldve never even held the title this long in the first place. If you had it your way and Rocky never got a title shot then Punk wouldve never had this long title run. Rocky will generate tons of mainstream exposure, restore prestige to the title, make the title the focal point of the show again, and cement whoever beats him for it. We all assume it will be Cena but what if WWE swerves us and its Rocky and Punk at Mania for the title with Punk going over? Wouldnt that be a far bigger rub than Punk loosing to Takers streak? Think about it

A likely story, they were sent home happy at WM 28 when Rock had no business going over Cena. I can only imagine if HHH were doing stuff like this how people would respond.


Rock doesn't need to be champion, besides he shouldn't be going over the top 2 guys in the company in consecutive years while he been sitting at home.


Rock losing can create an even bigger match than him winning. People want Rock/Lesnar, that doesn't need the title and who the fuck is gonna defend it? Lesnar? Who wrestles twice a year? Rock who wrestles 3 times a year? Be smart that shit doesn't make any sense.


I know enough to know Vinnie Mac is chasing that Cena/Rock II, that's the truth. However this is one of those reasons why he's a millionaire that should be a billionaire. He's gonna set it up and the rest of the card is gonna be in disarray and the feud will be even worse than last year's.
