You'd be foolish to think any other scenario would generate a figure resembling last year's success. You don't have to like Cena, I happen to think he's awful, but he's still the guy and the rematch surpasses the myriad of other possibilities if booked correctly. Rock going over brings more mainstream outlets to the dance, and that's the whole point.

I not fussed that The Rock won the title, i think he deserves 1 last run.. Punk had the title for 434 days thats more then enough.

I just dont wanna see Rock Vs Cena again.

Yea cause Cena losing to Rock really hurt his career and he has yet to recover.

Rock just BURIED CM Punk and John Cena in a span of one year.

A part-timer who wrestled 10 years ago had no job being in the title picture.

This forum erupted when HHH beat Orton.This is way worse

Even a Heath Slater WWE championship reign would've put more prestige to the belt at this time after how much Punk devalued the title to the point of being a complete prop that every main-eventers, part-timers and even midcarders are passing up on.

Why should Rock deserve one last run in 2013 after having done nothing since 2003?

Rocky marks would say mainstream attention etc.But WWE is going the direction similar to WCW.Pushing retired guys instead of emerging talent

I've been talking to a wall this whole night in seems so it's not like much will change. I'm also new to the scene here but I will have to note that for the future.

434 days. The greatest reign in the history of professional wrestling. Nobody will forget it.

Been there, done that, and got the T-shirt, son, and you're just doing reruns.

Personally, could have done without Rock winning the title.


If he's a true draw, him being there alone will improve ratings, regardless if he has the title. He's so beyond it now and at this point, serves no purpose with it other than to keep it warm for Cena in April.

That's your opinion. I don't share the same one.

The memories, the moments, the pose, it was one big, awesome presentation of a period that I will never forget. The match was great, Rock's ribs selling throughout the match was unbelievable, some nice exchanges like the Sharpshooter to the Vice to the roll up. Great near falls like the Rock Bottom and the elbow drop along with great reaction from the crowd as expected. Punk got his chants but it was 80%+ pro-Rock and the final victory pop was awesome. The ending after the Shield BS was a perfect symbolic finish with Rock doing exactly what he promised and as one with the people ending the 430 days of misery. Like he said in the emotional, passionate promo he cut before the match(The part about his mother especially was strong and you could see it in his facial expression. That promo came right from his heart), when the time will come all of them will beat Punk which is why it was the right finish to end it with the move that personified the fun and Rock's connection with the audience more than anything else, The People's Elbow. It was not as good as the Rock/Cena match IMO but it was a great, physical match with awesome investment and moment - ****1/4.

The Shield spot was completely pointless but everything else was too strong to ruin something. Iconic moment and the reason I'm still watching and following this industry. For classic moments like this with genuine emotion around it. Rock/Cena 2 at WM29 looks like it's already been confirmed but I still say what I said before and that's the possibility of the EC match with Heyman bringing back Lesnar to stop Rock, costing him the title and setting up Rock/Brock for the WM29 main event. For now I don't really care.
Wasn't anywhere close to that, and I would say open your ears... but you only hear what you want to hear anyway. I bet you didn't hear those boos for the Rock either, did you?
