Soooo if Rock never left they'd just stop pushing new stars?

Weird.

My thought is this, I don't see WWE missing the payout of Rock vs Cena 2, despite the outcome being painfully obvious. That's the only reason I see them not doing a Triple Threat.

So my real questions are how do they have Rock retain and Punk still look strong? And how do they set up Punk vs Undertaker, rather than just have Punk come out and say "I'm amazing, I could beat undertaker"?

I've just rewatched Punk/Rock match and enjoyed it more than the first time. It's actually a better match than I thought it was. Maybe the lingering disappointment of Cena's Rumble win made me think it was worse.

I never said that. He wouldve never been pushed as the top dog if Lesnar never left and Lesnar woudlve never been pushed as top dog if Rocky never left. If you think Cena wouldve had nearly as good of a career with Rocky there your delusional

Meltzer gave the match 4 stars.

Would agree with him, I really enjoyed it.

Wow. Theres overrating something and then there is that. It was 3 stars and thats being generous.

It was a punch/kick fest with virtually no actual moves or big spots. The lights going out and Rock restarting the match was Russo's wet dream.

It's about telling a story, first and foremost. When you do that and you get the audience involved you did a good job. Punk and Rock did just that. No "big spots" needed. Great worked match. **** is appropriate.

It was enjoyable, somewhat old school with just punches and kicks and the psychology was there, it just didn't feel particularly special, 3 and a half stars from me.

It was 80/20, 75/25 at best. With 95/5 towards the end of the match. From the live video, it was an awesome atmosphere, especially for Rock's victory pop. WWE really need to mic their arenas better.

Anyway, very good segment on RAW, Rock in the EC would have been great but if you think about the participants, it's really problematic to book. Ryback can't lose and to book a Rock/Cena exchange anywhere before WM in a match would be stupid. Then all you have left is mid card guys so a rematch with Punk is fine. I wanted fresh opponent but they're all busy in the SD side unfortunately. Surreal moment to see Rock with the belt again on RAW. Great promo to show the significance of the moment and setting up the rematch with Punk. It's about time he also called him a "punk ass bitch". I guess that they're doing now the delusional heel Punk character where he refuse to believe that he lost the belt until Rock beats him clean again at EC for him to realize that it's officially over. Another part of it is that Rock is probably gonna wait until after EC to bring his new WWE Title belt as part of the Cena feud to WM29.

As for a 3 way, should never happen. There's no money in a 3 way, people want to see one on one matches in the main event. If it was Brock? It's a different story(And even then, Cena would hurt it)but other than that it should be Rock/Cena alone. Any other factor is going to lower the hype and the appeal of the match to the paying audience.
Nope, it was 60/40 in favour of Rock at best. Also, the Rock won't be bringing his new belt to WM. When are you people going to get it through your thick skulls, that there will be no new belt?

He can't cash in on the WWE title. He can only cash it in on the World Heavyweight title.
