They Earned it! The Rock Earned it!

Rating: 4 votes, 4.25 average.
I have read this statement over and over again...a garbage statement from the IWC that really bothers me. "The Rock winning the WWE title would ruin the prestige of the championship." I have read that statement over and over in multiple different ways. And all I can think is, the IWC has really forgotten the superstars, and specifically The Rock that made the WWE title prestigious in the first place.

From Hulk Hogan to Macho Man Randy Savage, from Bret Hart to Shawn Michaels and from Stone Cold Steve Austin to The Rock...all these men had left their mark on the WWE title and made it center of the WWE Universe. Now, I won't go and argue which era was better or anything like that. I certainly won't take anything away from the champions pre attitude era. However to drive the point home on the title of my blog, They Earned it! Guy's like Stone Cold, Mick Foley, Undertaker, Shawn Michaels and The Rock ushered in the Attitude Era...more importantly during that era each of these men paid their dues and worked hard to make WWE the dominate force in sports entertainment. The Rock Earned it! Being one of the men that made sure guys like John Cena, Randy Orton and especially CM Punk still had a WWE to work for and win the prestigious WWE title. Lets face it, we all know the history of the Monday Night Wars and the Attidude Era. So I am not gonna go over all those details, we all know The Rock, Dwayne Johnson was there for all of it and became a huge reason we tuned in every week to watch Raw and Smackdown. I mean seriously, one of WWE weekly shows is named after his damn word that he invented. And one last thing that may not mean much to the IWC...but Vince Mcmahon himself said the WWE is The Rocks "toy box" and he can come and go as he pleases.

How much proof do you need to realize that The Rock winning a title he helped keep relevant would never tarnish the title itself. Especially if the IWC's only complaint as far as I can see is that Dwayne is not a full time superstar. It certainly was John Cena's only gripe during their fued. Congrats IWC, your all regurgatating Cena's complaint. Oh I almost forgot, another complaint is that it takes away from the talent that is currently on the roster. Yeah, try again...seriously, if anyone on the roster earned the right to hold the title, they would be challenging for it. Don't get me wrong, I love a lot of the guys on the roster and I know eventually some of them will earn the title. But thats just it, they still have to earn it. They are all doing what The Rock already did, paying their dues. I will even go as far as to say there are one or two guys who have already earned it. But as many of you like to point out, they are "full time" so they will get their shot.

All in all, if anyone who earned the respect and spot that the has earned came back and won the title I wouldn't have any problem with it. Stone Cold, Shawn Michaels, Undertaker and Mick Foley among some others could do this and I wouldn't flinch. In fact, between superstars like Edge and Trish Stratus have left with the title around their waste. So its actually my wish that The Rock gets this really rare occurance where he wins the WWE title and retains at WrestleMania. Just my sidenote here, I think it would be great if The Rock did that, turned heel last second leaving with the title and having occasional promos via satellite about how he still has the title. The story could go similar to CM Punks when he left only it could last longer. In the meantime, they could come up with a different looking WWE title which everyone has been screaming for and when The Rock makes another comeback, it could be another WWE champ vs WWE champ where The Rock could put over whoever had earned it by then.

So here is your chance, let me know what you think. Honestly how could anyone believe that The Rock could take away from the prestige of the WWE title when there are so many story lines that can come from him winning and putting over talent. And if you think he hasnt put over talent or put the company first...see Brock Lesnar or Goldberg during both times Dwayne Johnson left to establish his movie career.

    Guys...really...isnt the point to being a FAN of wrestling or the WWE or one or more wrestlers in the IWC or anywhere to voice your OPINION of what you would like to happen or not happen. Naturally everyone is entitled to agree or disagree with one another but if I am a fan of CM Punk or Ziggler am I wrong to suggest ideas that favor them? We can argue all day long about drawing power and dues being paid and talent vs talent but in the end I do not particularly have a interest in what helps the WWE make more money...I can see why they would care and would make decisions accordingly so more power to them because they are the ones that actually make those decisions not the IWC...all we have are voices and opnions and if I personally like PUNK better than the Rock that is just my opinion.

    I get it is a business to them but to me it is what it always is escapism...so if I think one thing and you think another well good for us...who knows what they will do we can only speculate and offer what we would like to happen...naturally you think your thoughts and opinions (esp if they differ than mine) are more valid and just causing you to say so and rightly as they are YOUR opinions to which you are entitled and so is everyone else...

    You basically nailed it. You're not wrong for liking Ziggler or Punk. I think the blog was just trying to sort of put it in perspective. I know you, or me, or this guy or that guy don't particularly care what kind of money WWE makes, but the idea that Rock winning the title takes value away from it or tarnishes it is just absurd.

    Someone who just began appearing earlier this month, who will win the title over 10 people who deserve it 100%. DOES NOT DESERVE IT. When he wins he will be away for weeks leading up to WM if you read the news you would know. Someone like him never deserve something like that

    Look, it’s all about one thing like Rick Starr said ADVERTISEMENT and I’m adding MONEY to that equation. You’ve got to ask two questions: 1.What does Rock winning the title do for WWE the company and brand? & 2.What does winning the WWE Title do for the Rock?

    HERE’S THE DEAL: Rock winning the title makes WWE more popular, and reach more viewers, more companies, media outlets, etc. which in turn equals $$$$ to WWE. Now at the same time, Rock who already got WWE in the palm of his hand, is making alotta $$$ from this deal, and since he knows that how good of a showing he puts on in these 3 months translate into how much $$$$, viewers, and media outlets come to WWE, he’s going to want to get top dollar for his work.

    Basically Rock winning the WWE title/Losing the title/hell Not even having anything to do with the title has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH MAKING COMMON SENSE FROM A PURE WRESTLING FAN STANDPOINT, BUT IT DOES MAKE SENSE TO A BUSINESS SAVY WRESTLING FAN.
