You had a 30 year old full timer be a transitional champ to a 40 year old part timer. Anything The Rock does will have interest and buys because he's The Rock. He doesn't need the belt. Company could have spent the last say, year, getting ready by building a new face up to get the belt off Punk.
What happens when all these 40 year old guys aren't around for this company?
Finally, if they wanted The Rock to win, why book Punk that weak for the 6 months leading up to the match and why book a finish that dusty and anticlimactic?
