HOPEFULLY at EC there is a bit more pace to the match, spots that make sense and a satisfying ending.



I thought the match was ok at best, but the blown table spot and the clusterfu*k finish ruined the rest of the match for me.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

For me, this one month Rock vs. Punk feud alone surpasses anything I've seen from the one freaking year Rock vs. Cena build. I think this feud has been great thus far, mainly for the golden promos. Personally wouldn't have minded seeing them milk this feud towards WrestleMania as apposed to another "once-twice in a lifetime" nonsense or at the very least, make it a Triple Threat. Because I have no desire to see another one on one Rock vs. Cena match after their below average match from last year. Sadly, they're will be a rematch, which is why I'm betting my house that Rock's retaining at Elimination Chamber.

Can The Rock really retain the belt at Elimination Chamber?

The Rock winning the gold has many advantages in theory. It immediately attracts a bigger audience to Raw, and it puts a larger spotlight on WWE in the weeks leading up to Wrestlemania. So on paper this makes sense, but if the new champ either can't be bothered/doesn't have the correct schedule due to other commitments, to turn up on Raw, what is the point of him retaining at Elimination Chamber?

Now before I continue, I would like to qualify what I am saying by making clear I am not just saying this as a Punk fan. I respect The Rock and his contribution to the WWE, but I find it totally embarrassing that after 6 months of build up to the Royal Rumble, he finally wins, turns up at one Raw, and then bam, not there all of a sudden.

In the short term, Rock as champ is obviously a good business move, but each Raw that The Rock misses will quite quickly start to damage the impact of the WWE title. And if Rock and Cena want to feud over this belt...well I really don't see the belt being that important come WM29 if the belt is kept off TV.

The WWE belt has never been intended to go to the best wrestler, or even the best all round entertainer, or the best talker. It's simply meant to go to the person, who at the time, is carrying the ball. The one putting asses to seats. So whilst in theory The Rock is the greatest draw of all time...he can't draw if he can't be bothered to show up. I think he needs to drop the belt at EC for the sake of the titles reputation, and his own.

Vincent K McMahon:

"Despite the way I would feel personally about someone, if it's the right business thing to do, I'll do it for our audience."

"Giving it to the audience is probably the easiest thing. Finding out what they truly want is probably the most difficult."

"If you stop building stars, which we never do, you wouldn't be in business."

"We love our fans, so there's nothing we wouldn't do for them, and we go directly to them."

"Again, the nice part about it is that we listen to our fans, and they're the ones who really decide who is ready to break through into that top echelon."

Re: Can The Rock really retain the belt at Elimination Chamber?

he is 100% retaining the belt

rock is guaranteed to walk into wrestlemania as world champion

honestly, all that matters to Vince, is money. As it should be. Rock draws the most money and attention, therefore having the belt on him going into the biggest show of the year is a great idea

Re: Can The Rock really retain the belt at Elimination Chamber?

I hate title reigns that last one month or less most of the time. And taking the title off someone only to put it back onto them is dumb. But I REALLY do not want Rock going into Wrestlemania as champion. Rock/Cena II has no appeal to me. And plus a part-timer should never have been champion in the first place. So I am hoping Punk wins.

Re: Can The Rock really retain the belt at Elimination Chamber?

The only way I see Punk winning:
- if Undertaker decides to skip this years Wrestlemania, and WWE doesn't find a "real" opponent for Punk to face at WM, then Punk might win to make it a triple threat for the WWE Championship. Punk - champion, Cena - Royal Rumble winner, Rock - rematch clause.
However chances of things playing out this way are slim.

Re: Can The Rock really retain the belt at Elimination Chamber?

how many raws he missed?
most people here talking like he missed 3 or 4 raws?
he was already booked for a media tour months ago on monday feb 4 and vince know it and they booked him for smackdown this week instead and he agreed despite having another media tour starting on wednesday
so stop acting like the guy isn't committed because he already appeared on 4 raws and 2 smackdowns in the last 30 days
