If that's not enough they presented another guy who wrestled in the main event instead of the champion as someone who had the worst year ever in his career. I don't know what can damage more the impact of the title than what they did last year.
Vince treated the WCW title 2001 with more respect than his own title 11 years later. Hell, even Eric Bischoff with the WWE title during the Monday Night Wars (one of the biggest nightmares of Vince) would threat the title with more respect.

Back to topic, the win of the Rock is just a formality because the WWE champion needs to be somehow involved on a PPV before WrestleMania. They already plan Cena vs Rock so it doesn't make sense having Punk winning the belt. Even if they plan a triple threat match it would not make sense for having the Rock losing the title to CM Punk and having only a 1 month title reign when the next PPV after this is already WrestleMania.
Yes, you make a very good point. It was damaging to the title, and to Punk, having him in the midcard for much of his entire reign.

And yes, Rock retaining seems like such a formality, to build for twice in a lifetime. I just find it a shame that what is supposed to be the most unpredictable part of the year has been turned into the most predictable. Swerves can, and do, happen.. there is still time for a swerve. But the chances of this happening are very minimal.

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."

I hope Rock loses at EC, because that means a triple threat at Mania.

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

I can see Punk taking back the belt @ Elimination Chamber is a dirty heel way, Rock has been insulting Heyman on the numerous occasions so maybe Heyman could get involved again.

The Rock has gotten attention as the Champ, him losing it now and then facing for the triple threat vs Cena vs Punk would be very interesting, more interesting than just Cena V Rock II

You're right, a guy with a net worth of 70 million and all the resources in the world for roids isn't going to take them for a movie made about bodybuilding.

Lol @ you. Not to mention the rocks trainer also trains some of the top pro bodybuilders in the world, let me guess they are natural too




you are either

a: 300+ lbs of pure fat and have never been to a gym in your life

b: 100lbs of nothing but skin and bones and have never been to a gym in your life

pls go
