Marketing strategy. If there's a Rock/Austin confrontation, it'll be April 3rd on Pay-Per-View.
Why should Creative be fired? It all comes down to Vince or whoever is in charge of large, immediate investments. If at any time a big star doesn't work for WWE it's down to the people who pay the salaries and/or the talent having too high a demand.If the company fail to put Rock and Austin in the ring together at any time for a promo, between now and Mania then creative should all be fired and McMahon put out to pasture.
The "45 minute debate" would be better than ANYTHING the current roster does (outside of the Rock obviously).In a riveting 45 minute debate. 15 minute remarks, 5 minute rebuttals, 5 minutes of joint mocking The Miz and Cena! Who needs wrestling, a compelling mid card and Diva division or tag teams and Wrestlemania buildup when you could have that?
Is the WWE really this desperate that they've go to live a decade in the past?
Ya, why would WWE want to promote the possibility of the two biggest stars in recent memory crossing paths for the first time in years? Why would they want eyeballs on RAW?Why would it be a marketing ploy?
Don't be surprised to see Rock come out and rip Cena and then have Austin come out.
Of course though, they could keep it for Wrestlemania.
