That's the bottom line though.
Rock generates more money. More publicity. More ratings. More ratings gets more guys noticed on TV. It's their chance to shine.
Thats what people don't understand. The Rock having the belt is better for EVERYBODY involved with WWE, even Punk. Better for short term and better for long term. This loss hurt nobody except for whiny Punk fans.
Also Cena winning hurt nobody either. Ziggler didn't need as he already has the MITB. The only one that could have used it other than Cena was Ryback and people would've b***hed even more about that.
i could've cared less who the champ that lost to the rock. the point is that they are taking out any shock, any "i didnt see that coming moment" that the WWE used to be full of. you didnt even have to go to insider wrestling sites to know that this was in the plans for a long time. this s**t just doesn't make sense:
take for example ryback. they've been building him up for about 6 months now? put a lot of work into him, they've been featuring him every week in main even status promos or matches. then they tried to bring that "prestige" back to the WWE belt for over a year now; making punk do some stale and boring promos at times, about how much the belt means to him, how important it is, ect. which made good sense with the storyline and into building the cm punk heel character up some more.
so here's cm punk, a fully established heel, he has brought the "respect" back to the title, he's the best in the world. now here comes this animal in ryback, the person the WWE has spent a lot of time into making him look legit - time for him to show that he's the best in world, right? no... let's go back to ruining the "prestige" that has been put back into the title, lets let a former WWE superstar, now actor, come in the WWE cut a couple promos, and then win the title.
i'm sure everybody in the back, including cm punk, are just full of joy about the rock winning the title. all these people that have jobbed for punk (on top of all the guys that jobbed for ryback), helping him as a heel and also making the championship belt not look like such a joke anymore, i bet they are glad that the guy who wrestles a match once a year and hasn't done s**t for the company up until a month ago, go on and wins the belt.
and why is this so much better "everybody"? this isnt TNA...people know what the WWE is! it's not breaking news! the company has already been put on the map, it's time to put the people who help make the company what it is on the map.
