Should someone besides Rock/Cena end Punk's title reign?

This is a great opportunity to really elevate a mid-card face.

At Vengeance 2001, Chris Jericho beat Rock and Austin in the same night, and it somewhat catapulted his career.

At NYR 2006, Edge cashed-in his MITB briefcase and it started his main-event career, by ending Cena's 9 months title reign.



-Cena's already won 12 world titles, and has been the alpha dog for 7+ years

-Rock is 40 yrs old, and has wrestled 2 matches in 8+ years... will he even do anything with the WWE after WM 29?


^Why do either of them need this big win, and to be "the guy" to end Punk's nearly 1 year long title reign?



No other face can really get to the top as long as Cena's around, because he's inserted as the superhero into every major storyline.

The only way to elevate punk is if he loses to a big name. Punk needs it more

I guess they could try turning Ziggler and having him cash in on Punk, he seems to be getting over as a face but it remains to be seen if he could actually get the majority behind him.

Other than that who is there?
I dont see anyone honestly... Ziggler would be an excellent choice for a guy who needs that one signature win, but he's a heel right now.

Unfortunately, his big win will likely be his MITB cash-in, which could look weak if he takes advantage of an exhausted Sheamus



Regarding the midcard faces...

Brodus, Ryder, Santino - not serious enough for a main event push with current gimmicks

Ryback - long way to go, too many squash matches and much of the audience looks at him as a direct ripoff of Goldberg

Kofi - been a mid-carder for awhile, needs some more momentum before jumping into the world title picture

Maybe, but are you saying he's not elevated yet? I think he's very over right now.

since Sheamus is in the WHC picture. And Orton has fallen off. It has to be Rock or Cena
