    Didn’t think he’d do that until WM.

  • Chuck

    He is going to do it before so he can be champ at wrestlemania!!!

  • PDA

    At the royal rumble the wwe champion will go one on one with the great one!!!!!!

  • Eloy

    Guess this means he wins the title from Punk at RR, and Cena winning the RR match, leading to Cena/Rock 2 at WM

    • gibbons08

      That’s the exact thing I was thinking! Cause why would they have the Rock come out and tell that directly o CM Punk?

    • Kleck

      I will love to see The Rock at RR and at WM but with Cena…yuck

    • Tom

      Totally tarnishes WM 28′s tag line of: ‘Once In A Lifetime’ though. I want Rock vs Brock for the WWE title at WM 29. Punk vs Austin. Cena vs Undertaker!

  • gibbons08

    How cool would it be if punk loses to Rock and then enters the Rumble and wins to challenge at Wrestlemania!? This past Rumble they kept going on and on about how anyone can enter, I think that would awesome!

  • Mr.Love

    With everything that happened I really hope NOW that punk loses at Royal Rumble to the rock and they continue a fued til wrestlemania. I think that could be good plus we get to see more of the rock

  • Charles

    Will be interesting to see if the title match will main event the Royal Rumble and not the…Royal Rumble.
