But my gut tells me we are also going to get Punk vs Brock.

Btw, If you watch Punk vs Rock I & II, then watch Rock vs Cena, last years match seems much better.
Punk vs brock? Who will be the face?



Current favourites: CM Punk, The Shield, Dolph Ziggler, Daniel Bryan, Bray Wyatt.
All time favourites: The Undertaker, The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, CM Punk, Scott Hall.


Not removing until CM Punk is back in the WWE.

Im thinking it wont be that cut and dry.

I can see both maintaining a heel persona whilst Heyman provides some face momentum behind Brock. I think many fans will side with Heyman once Punk throws him aside.

Does punk have a claim to be in this match? I thought that was where they were heading from the ref bump and him laying rocky out..

Re: Official The Rock vs. John Cena II Discussion Thread

ok i'm gonna say it flat out..

does anyone even care about this match ? I don't

the feud has zero interest, bar the fact that the two have zero chemistry together in promos and in a feud and last year showed it (in fact Punk/Rock had much more chemistry and they clicked together well) , add that to the fact that we know who the winner is and there's no dispute that Cena's winning 100%

so what does this feud has to offer product-wise ?


I know the ever-so-Cena-loving Itssoeasy23 is gonna spring out and defend this match with his normal "Oh this is the right decision, Oh Cena needs this, Oh face of the company.." shtick, but do you honestly in the right frame of mind believe that either Cena needs to go over The Rock in this stage of his career ?

We all knew this was happening, but I find it surprising that WWE think this will create as much buys as it did last year. It's already happened, and last year it was pretty dismal. Why do it again? Are the casuals going to pay and watch the same match again? Hmmm.

Yes.

Thats the hard facts. Whether we like it or not is irrelevant.

WWE Champion The Rock vs. John Cena



Less than a month after winning the Royal Rumble Match and announcing his intention of challenging for the WWE Title at WrestleMania 29, John Cena found out who his championship opposition will be on The Grandest Stage of Them All: The Rock.

The Great One upended CM Punk at Elimination Chamber, the last pay-per-view before The Show of Shows, to retain the cherished WWE Championship and solidify his place in WrestleMania’s main event.

In The Brahma Bull, Cena will be facing a foe who helped set in motion the tailspin of a year that was 2012.

A 10-time former WWE Champion, the Cenation leader has not held the title since October 2011, and the disappointment of his drought was exacerbated last year by his high-profile loss to The Great One at WrestleMania XXVIII. The devastating loss bookended one of Cena’s toughest calendar years, to date. A series of distractions, from dealing with former General Manager John Laurinaitis to falling into an ill-fated romance with AJ Lee, kept Cena away from the WWE Title picture for much of the year. And even once he found himself in title contention, he was unable to pry the WWE Title from Punk, making 2012 a largely unproductive year for one of the most decorated competitors in WWE history. (WATCH: Cena's WrestleMania Moments)

Fortunately for the Cenation leader, 2013 appears to be off to a markedly better start, thanks to his huge win at Royal Rumble. The larger question facing Cena is whether he will be able to keep the momentum going all the way to April 7, when he faces the Superstar who dealt him one of the biggest losses of his career.

The Rock has shown no signs of ring rust since returning to WWE and winning the WWE Title in January. In fact, The Great One overcame great obstacles — including The Shield and The Second City Saint’s underhanded tactics — en route to dethroning Punk and subsequently turning back his challenge in a rematch.

With The Rock and Cena informed by their epic encounter last year in Miami, both competitors will assuredly come to MetLife Stadium with a more sharpened focus than ever before. Cena is out to avenge last year’s WrestleMania loss to The Great One. The Rock, on the other hand, appears intent on keeping the championship he waited more than a decade to reclaim — the title that represents the sport that not only propelled him to success on the silver screen, but also captured his heart and mind at a young age. (WATCH: The Rock's WrestleMania Moments)

Now, all that separates The Rock and John Cena is time. On April 7, under the brightest lights that sports-entertainment has to offer, who will leave will the top prize: The Rock or John Cena?
that didn't take long

I really doubt that there's gonna be just as much casuals watching the show as last year

last year "Rock vs Cena" had its own vibe and aura, people who actually stopped watching wrestling for years bought this show, MMA fans or the people who left wrestling by 2002-04 or grown up from it , because the match itself was a dream match that needed to happen

and then when you add the year long build up and marketing campaign, you are destined to success


however, now that the match has already happened and the feud concluded, I seriously doubt that you can get those same viewers back again, not because the feud sucked (which it did btw) , but because this is sort of a one-time deal

when you go to Disney Land for the first time, you get that awe moment and surreal feeling of pleasure, however when you constantly go there you don't feel the same way as the first time you saw it, hell some people are only interested in going there one time just for the sake of going there

why would those target viewers (the people who stopped and returned for one match) pay for something they already saw and they know the outcome of the match ?

now add that to the fact that it's gonna be build up in 40 days or so, not a whole year
