Rock was the main reason those two WMs did huge buys,no denying that

But was it Rock alone or the anticipation of Rock vs Cena that led to such huge numbers

Rock>Cena,no need to doubt my intentions

The Rock vs Undertaker would have done 1 million buys and The Rock vs HHH. Not too sure on anyone else though.

Yes, Taker, Lesnar etc are all big opponents for Rock to draw with. There's a difference between a guy like Trump, who was the reason for the success of WM23, and a guy like Vince, who will never be able to do it with another guy. Same with Floyd, you put Floyd with different opponent instead of Show? it's still huge.

There's a big difference between the opponent and the game-changer. Sure, as big as the opponent is, the game-changer has the potential to do bigger business, but he's still just the opponent. You take out Cena? still an astronomical success. You take Rock, WM27 is a complete disaster with the worst numbers since 97 and WM28 is doing at best, 2010 numbers if it's a one match show with HHH/Taker.

The ONLY WM Cena was the selling point in his entire career was WM22 with HHH, and that show didn't do million buys even when business was like 99 back then compared to now.
