2. Am I reading too much into this but why did The Rock continuously use the word "promise" about winning the WWE title. I noticed he overused the word quite a lot and wondered whether there is something in this like The Rock took some extra measures to beat CM Punk.

3. Does anyone else think it was strange that if CM Punk has lost the title that he lost it to a peoples elbow. I just cant imagine Punk been backstage and agreeing to lose the title to such a weak move. It seems strange they would push someone one so hard for so long and the longest champion in 25 years for him to lose to an elbow signature move rather than a finishing move.

4. Did anyone else think it was below the belt and out of place with The Rock saying he was going to beat CM Punk for cancer. I totally get The Rock dedicating the win to his Mum who survived cancer and im very happy for him and his family that she made a full recovery as anyone else would.

But on an entertaining and scripted TV show about two guys having a must see match I found it quite tasteless that such a serious matter like cancer should be used in such a story line. Way out of line and way out of context I knew from that moment who was winning the title.

the whole point of the shield not being revealed is cause punk would have got stripped of his title. hence why you were never supposed to see them.

Re: Why were the Shield not revealed at Royal Rumble? And other observations.

1. Punk would have been stripped of the belt on the spot is why The Shield were not revealed.

2. Yes, reading too much into it, it's just a method to increase buy rates, people wanted to see Rock win the title so he promised it would happen so they buy the PPV.

3. It was an odd way to end a 400+ day reign, especially after the emphasis The Rock had put on his Rock Bottom ending the match in promos last week.

4. Not really, was just a feel good moment for he and his family.

Does that not seem stupid that we where supposed to think it wasn't The Shield. Even though for weeks they have interfered in matches with the lights out

Re: Why were the Shield not revealed at Royal Rumble? And other observations.

1 - There is no way the result is going to be changed on RAW, I guess the commentators were able to see them when they were putting Rock through the table. You could kind of hear Ambrose attacking Rock slightly.

2 - The Rock did promise a win but then again CM Punk promised his title reign was going to continue until next January.

3 - If anything the people's elbow is more of a finisher than the rock bottom, as The Rock always used that to beat opponents.

4 - Didn't see no problem with his speech before the match, thought it was brilliantly done.

Re: Official Royal Rumble PPV Discussion Thread

All faces win.
The Rock wins.
John Cena wins.
CM Punk loses to a part timer and a people elbow, who put on a terrible performance and had to do many submissions and grapples because The Rocks stamina was so poor. ANd slowed the match right down.

I watched it with two friends who used to watch wrestling and love The Rock, they dont watch it now and they thought it was ridiculous that Cena and The Rock won.

Ahh well it was good whilst it lasted onwards and upwards.

If you watched closely, you could see them in very quick flashes of light.


I don't know why people keep thinking it wasn't The Shield. The whole idea of it was that 'Punk didn't see it' so he was trying to act as if he didn't instruct them to do anything and they just came out on their own. That way, if the ref came to the conclusion that they came out on their own without Punk knowing or instructing, he could possibly keep the belt because their appearance 'wouldn't be his fault'.


Absolutely laughable that some people thought it was John Cena.
