Since the bout was confirmed by The Rock at the 1000th episode of Monday Night Raw, CM Punk has been the fans favorite to face “The People’s Champion” going into the event, despite this speculation and rumors have been constant on whether WWE would choose Punk, Cena or an alternative opponent.

Speculation suggested WWE were contemplating holding off on CM Punk versus The Rock until Wrestlemania, others alleged creative were discussing ways of creating a Triple Threat match for the biggest event in sports entertainment, which John Cena acting as the third combatant.

Nothing has been confirmed for Wrestlemania and with an array of talent at their exposure (Brock Lesnar, Triple H, The Undertaker etc, etc) WWE have a multitude of directions to move in, but as far as the Royal Rumble is concerned, its good as confirmed The Rock will challenge CM Punk for the WWE Championship.

      You’re the first person I’ve seen say that. I love it.

      They know The Rock will probably sell the event by himself, add in draws like Punk, Cena, possible HHH, Lesnar and Taker, this event will make money. They know by placing The Rock on there solely the event revolves around him, which it does anyway.
