Backstage News on the Finish for Rock vs. Punk and More

– The Rock and CM Punk practiced their Royal Rumble match on Sunday before the pay-per-view. The finish was kept top secret from other talents to the point that they hung a curtain around the ring so nobody could see what they were doing.

Regarding the finish of the match, Punk was pinned after The People’s Elbow because their feud had been built on Punk saying that the people don’t matter and Rock saying they do.

With Rock as WWE Champion, the idea is he will be doing a ton of media to promote several movies over the next two months and can talk about WWE, WrestleMania and being the champion.

    just stupid. why is the wwe putting over old wrestlers. answerer that one. Is the rock going to wrestle 300 plus nights. Is the rock coming back full time. NO! So why don’t they make CM Punk look amazing a put him over. CM Punk got screwed and you all know it. People’s Chump

    Punk losing due to a People’s Elbow itself wasn’t the problem, the fact it only took a People’s elbow is why it was weak. At least have Rock hit a Rock Bottom then have the People’s elbow as the exclamation point on it.

    I wanted to see CM Punk hold onto the belt longer, but I understood why they did what they did. After all it’s all about the money.
