Backstage Concern Over The Rock & The Royal Rumble

At this time, there is reportedly growing concern within WWE as to whether or not CM Punk vs. The Rock at The Royal Rumble is a wise move. The Rumble is a pay-per-view that tends to sell itself and has traditionally always been one of the most purchased PPVs throughout the years. The concern is over whether or not having The Rock in a high profile match at the Rumble is the best use of WWE's time and focus.

There are some WWE officials who feel that with The Rock appearing at the pay-per-view, the attention paid to the Royal Rumble match will be less than what it should be from both an advertising and creative standpoint.

Currently there is no set plan or path on exactly what is going to happen regarding The Rock at the Royal Rumble and the road to WrestleMania. A few months ago, people would have stated that it was a sure thing The Rock wins the title at Rumble. But now there is less certainty as WWE is said to have not made final decisions on any of the high profile names, feuds and matches for WrestleMania 29. They will be working heavily on this over the next several weeks.

I know people do not like the idea of Rock winning the WWE title, but in all honesty I would not mind. The Rock is still in amazing shape and can still go in the ring.

I don't mind that much if he wins so long as he's there regularly as he has it and it's not a super-long reign. He shouldn't be unbeatable.


Think I'll have a wank over these tomorrow.

The closer we get the more i think Punk will retain. Considering Rock probably won't be doing house shows and i don't even think he will be one every Raw i can't see the WWE Champion being off so many shows... Then again Punk has been injured for a moth and he's been Champion.

I was going to say that if Punk doesn't have to defend the title for 2 months then I think a few house shows can survive without the Rock until Mania.
