How long do you think The Rock will hold the WWE Championship?
I would be very surprised if The Rock held the WWE Championship past Wrestlemania 29 in April. Vince McMahon has wanted to do Rock vs. John Cena II for the WWE Championship and that certainly appears to be the direction they are going. The obvious prediction is for Cena to avenge his loss from last year and win the WWE Championship in a public "passing of the torch." A lot can happen between now and then but Rock vs. Cena is the plan barring a major change in direction or injury.
Is Ryback's push over due to him not winning the 30-man Royal Rumble?
Quite the opposite as Ryback is still considered a main event talent, hence being the 29th and final elimination from the 2013 30-man Royal Rumble match. There are plans for him to have a top level match at Wrestlemania 29 and it certainly appeared a message was sent when he eliminated Randy Orton from the Rumble match.
How did you feel about Bo Dallas in the WWE Royal Rumble Match? Do you think he will be called up and feud with Wade Barrett?
I liked how Bo Dallas was scripted to look like he had a shot and not quickly forgotten like a typical enhancement talent. Notice his elimination was from Wade Barrett, who he had already eliminated. Clearly a feud is in place should WWE decide to call Bo Dallas up and I wouldn't be surprised if he got the nod. Dallas has been considered a top developmental prospect for nearly a year now.
What's next for CM Punk following the end to his historic reign as WWE Champion?
We can all rest assure CM Punk will address his WWE Championship loss to The Rock on this week's Raw. A rematch is likely and then it's on to sort out a Wrestlemania program. No one believes Punk will win it back as the plan, as mentioned above, is for Rock to defend against Cena. One of the favorites to face Punk is Undertaker and I'll have more on this shortly.
