At least it wouldn't have been the same thing as it always is... Could you imagine if a guy like Slater won the rumble and then went to Mania to win the belt? Isn't that the whole purpose of the RR? To give ANY superstar a chance at a career defining moment? Yet year after year it's just used as a WM title push for a guy that is already a main eventer.

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

Rocky marks would say mainstream attention etc.But WWE is going the direction similar to WCW.Pushing retired guys instead of emerging talent
Why do you refer to "Rocky marks" when you have him as your 5th favorite wrestler?

Anyways, Rock isn't that old. He's only going to have the title for a few months anyways. I really don't see this harming the business.

Before I comment, Punk and Rock are my two favourites of all time, so I have a fairly impartial view on the match...

That said, the reaction of the Punk fans is hilarious. To see people sulking that his 430+ day regin ended at the hands of an all-time-great just makes me question how they saw his regin when he picked up the belt at SS11. If you'd have told a Punk fan, or Punk himself, that his reign would last all of 2012, see him go over the likes of Cena, Jericho, Kane, Show, Bryan, Ryback, Dolph, Del Rio etc, and his reign would culminate in a singles match with The Rock neither he nor the fans would have believed you.

People are acting like Punk just lost a retirement match in 15 seconds to Doink. Just because his historical reign is over, doesn't mean the story is over. Punks program with Rock will continue into Elmination Chamber before he more than likely goes on to challenge the streak.

Perspective people.

The fact that you even acknowledge the predictability of the WWE is a shame to me, since I'd assume part of the intrigue in watching wrestling is that you don't know who is going to win. The fact that you refer to the 434 day reign as "misery" is quite disheartening to me, considering you seem to consider yourself a true wrestling fan that enjoys the big moments this business has. Moments like 6/27/11.... Or MITB 2011. Those were moments, possibly the only actual moments we will be able to look back on in this era and say "Wow, that was really something great that happened there, and we may not have realized at the time how great of a moment it actually was. " But to say that The Rock winning tonight was a "great moment" is a far cry from reality. As soon as The Shield (lets assume it was them) interfered, I stopped watching. I knew that The Rock had the title in the bag. Not that the match was that great to begin with but I was expecting a huge trade at the end, lots of near falls and an eventual winner. How many near falls did we have tonight? I think there was a grand total of 1 two count. Just one. The Rock, despite being "injured" and being a "great seller" was kicking out at 1 so fast you'd have to question whether he was wrestling or in a pillow fight. So now, for two years in a row we are forced to watch a guy that is WAY, WAY past his prime getting the top spot in the biggest match of the year. Two years of every bodies hard work is washed away so Cena and Rock can have the show to themselves. How many years is this going to continue on for? Rock/Cena 3, the rubber match? And then what, Cena moves on to a schedule like The Rock is currently on and he just comes to in bury people and not advance this company into a new era. We have all these guys on the roster, and I know for a fact Vince isn't going to be able to give them all the pushes/time they deserve and will be buryed and released like the rest of them or just turned into jobbers. It's a sad wrestling world we live in, and to reiterate my point, this wasn't a "moment of greatness", this was another defining moment in the downfall of the wrestling industry.
So a huge buzz around it, a great kickstart to a huge buyrate on the biggest stage of them all, and its a DOWNFALL? Do you know how the wrestling business works?
If anything, Punk's reign looked more as a downfall than Rock winning

Default Re: Did Vince make the right decision regarding CM Punk vs Rock?

Money wise he made the right choice, but that is for the here and now. But in the longterm he made the wrong choice. Cm Punk as a brand was affected, he was essentially devalued because he lost to a part timer, so much credibility down the drain. The Rock will eventually leave, and then your left w/ a Cm Punk that needs rebuilding to an extent. To me if you want the titles to mean anything at all, the champion can not loose to a part timer, no matter how great the part timer is. The only way I can see a remedy for this mess is for the WWE to book a triple threat for the title, and have Cm Punk come out on top. But alas that wont happen since we all know Cena will win at WM.

So you admit you're just trolling? Anyway, you and the rest of the Punk-haters, by all means carry on with your little circle jerk - you're not impressing anyone.

I don't know which is worse... you entertaining the notion of Heath Slater winning the RR, or actually entertaining what was clearly a troll post.

That's not even his opinion, it's just nonsense he made up to troll Punk fans/marks.

The Rock lays down for nobody

OP clearly knows what's best for business better than Vince does. Hopefully Rock beats Orton on Raw or something and then I guess fella too.
