WWE to Make The Rock Focal Point, Network News, PTP

Posted by Matt Boone November 7, 2012 24 Comments

- Darren Young and Titus O’Neil will be appearing at the Cricket Communications store in Dayton, Ohio on November 17th at 4pm.

- We’ve noted how the WWE Network will likely end up being a premium subscription service. WWE and TV industry sources report that they are looking at going with a price point of $10 per month.

- There are big plans in place for The Rock going into early 2013 and the WrestleMania season. Besides the WWE Title match with CM Punk at the Royal Rumble, Rock is set to make more regular appearances and will be a focal point of the company. Most within WWE expect Rock to capture the WWE Title and end Punk’s reign at the Rumble.

      As strange as it sounds, losing the title to The Rock will actually help CM Punk. Think about it being billed like this. Punk is such a “dominant” champion, that it takes a legend like The Rock to defeat him.

        There is no need for a guy like Rock to be put over. He is not in the business full time anymore. From a moral point of view Rock should put over punk. It would be better for the business if CM Punk is put over and then later drops to someone like Ryback or Cena or whomsoever the WWE think will be the next moolaah maker.

          Rock doesnt give a crap about morals. Rock’s greedy; all for himself. Rock thinks he’s the best. He doesn’t want to ruin that image. He will win that match and say he’s the best. And then he will say he’s always here and dissapear for another 9 months.

          This is the truth and you all know it

          btw, obama spends too much money. No point of giving stuff to poor people if you’re just going to cover it by inflating the USD and printing it.

            kill the poor people obama sucks because he is black
            the rock sucks cause he is black
            all niggers should just go back to the farms

        CM Punk doesnt need to be put over, and in no way would it help him by losing to The Rock. Punk is an established wrestler all over the world. He could go to Japan tomorrow and sign a 7 figure contract if he wasnt working for WWE. He was a World Champion even before entering WWE. The only reason this match is gonna happen is because it will put asses in seats.

      I just wish they’d do this kind of effort into mid-card talent. stop focusing on the old and just even attempt to do something thats going to last longer for the future..

    • Captain Chaos

      They should certainly pay more attention to the straps, let alone the mid card talent. I can’t remember when the Intercontinental, Tag Team, or United States straps were in a decent feud. I’d guess it’d be in back in WWF for the Intercontinental and Tag, and back in WCW for the United States.

      I was a pathetic wrestler that loved to swallow McMahons cum while Bret screws me in the ass but then I had to be a total fuckhead and get drunk and jump off the building killing myself because I was a gay faggot that deserves to die! Now I’m in he’ll where I belong taking it up the ass by Satan while hitler cums on my face

        Probably the same fucing pussy that comments at ‘Randy Savage” hiding behind his keyboard from his insecurities. Probably some self hating faggot who hasnt came out of the closet so he has to find any way he can to express himself.

          forced to become a gay prostitute selling my anus to fat smelly hairy
          black guys on the street so i can have that sweet sweet cocaine, I make
          Charlie Sheen look like a priest! then one day i fucking O.D and nobody
          fucking missed me! Now im in hell having huge condoms of cocaine shoved
          up my anus by Satan, with no lube

      Well people are always saying bring back the attitude era. And when wwe brings a key peice to that era ( the rock ) back people say it’s a bad idea and they don’t like it. Make up your minds. Rock=money. And he’s more entertaining than any current wwe superstar. Punk is a distant second to the rock. Bringing rock back will be entertaining, interesting and boost ratings.

      • http://www.facebook.com/nicholas.williams.509994 Nicholas Williams

        The Rock does equal money, and WWE is giving the fans what they said they wanted (someone from attitude era) But then they make him a focal point and the fans get mad because hes just there for the money… Like the other wrestlers aint. Money talks people… Dont hate just because there makin that money.

        • Not Chris Jericho

          Look, everyone wants to see the Rock wrestle. We just dont want to see someone who doesnt hit the road and work their butts off to be the top guy. It’d be like Lesnar winning the title, only to not show up for 6 months. There are plenty of guys that deserve that top dollar, money making praise that is the championship. Those guys get PPV bonuses, more merchandise, and fan/peer praise. The Rock had his time on top… Cena has had his time on top, and Punks time is dwindling down. There needs to be new stars and more praise for the veteran workers. Not some guy who shows up when its convenient for his movie career.

          • http://www.facebook.com/nicholas.williams.509994 Nicholas Williams

            I agree there do need to be new stars, but tell me the difference between putting the title on The Rock and putting it on John Cena… What because Cena is there every week he deserves it more? I dont think so. WWE is a business, its all about making money. The Rock as WWE Champion = more money. John Cena as champion = same crap we have had for the last 9 years. If they wernt going to put it on The Rock, then why take it off Punk?

      • unknown guy

        Yeah bring back attitude era but rock won’t stay in the ring for long so it doesn’t
        Make sense 2 make him champ,poeple who’s champ need 2 be an tv every day
        Rock will be this week but not next week or the second week ,
        If rock is willing 2 stay a little bit more time this time then they can put the belt on him
        Let say the rock won the champ on royal rumbel and the next monday he can’t come because he filming a movie that’s not cool bro

      Really theres talent that gives blood and sweat and you say f’k them lets give rock the title and promote his movie star ass… F’k u hard workers….

    • Not Chris Jericho

      The Rock really doesnt need to win at the Rumble…he needs to lose to Punk while Cena berates him for being past his prime. Then William Regal needs to win the Rumble, so at Wrestlemania, Regal can be the one to end Punks reign and finally get the respect HE deserves.

      We talk about some of the young guys like Ziggler, Rhodes, Sandow, and Jack Swaggar not getting what they deserve, but for Regal not to be a former WWE/World Champ is a disgrace. They had a pot of gold with his GM/King of the Ring run, and they threw it away!
