How do you know how long Orton's out for? They already started his heel turn before he got injured, so it's not at all inconceivable that he'll be back as a heel and win the WHC straight off.

I'm just saying what I THINK WILL happen, not what I'd LIKE to happen. At this point, Cena vs Cesaro isn't at all likely to happen at Wrestlemania.
And ALL those viewers won't leave with The Rock, that's silly. Some might see other stuff they like while watching a show with The Rock on it and decide they want to keep watching. And the point is, The Rock will be drawing in all these viewers during the busiest period of the year for WWE, and he'll be drawing more ticket sales and buys for their most expensive ppv of the year.
Again, having Taker beating Punk for the title is a stupid move. It should be someone young that takes the title off Punk so that that person gets the rub of winning the title and gets the rub of ending a year+ reign.
If Punk vs Taker is going to happen at Wrestlemania, then the title shouldn't be on the line for it.
Ryback vs Show will likely happen at Mania - but it won't be for the title. They want Orton(Heel) and Sheamus, last I heard for the title match.
Punk/Taker should be about respect, not the title; so Rock/cena II, I guess, can be for the title.
Just to be clear, what I'd like to happen:
Punk retains vs The Rock at the RR.
Cena wins the RR.
Cena vs Punk vs the Rock at WM with Punk retaining and continuing his title run.
What I think will happen:
Punk drops the title to The Rock at the RR.
Cena wins the RR.
Punk faces The Undertaker at WM
Cena vs Rock II for the WWE title at WM with Cena winning.
can we do without cena at wm for the title? dear god how many times do we need to see punk vs cena or cena in the title picture. its stale and never was good to begin with. plus a win over rock would do NOTHING i repeat; NOTHING for cena. punk needs the match ALONE with rock. that would push him.
But seriously, I hear they want to do either ziggler vs orton or orton and sheamus or big show vs ryback for the WHC. and then cm punk vs taker but fighting rock would benefit him, and lesnar can fight taker. only way it really benefits anyone IMO
You're going to be knackered when Cena retires, what are you going to talk about? :rolleyes:

I don't see the point in having the title on the line when the streak is already on the line.

Also, why have the title on the line in a match where we know for a fact who's going to win?
You would still have three main events:

I can't see Cena losing three Wrestlemania's in a row. Also we all love to say the streak will never be broken but at a time when viewership is declining and WWE is supposedly looking to produce an edgier product, who's to say that Vince on a whim decides to cash in on making CM PUNK potentially the biggest superstar of all time by ending the streak. It's a very long shot but most people were certain Cena was gonna beat Rock at Wrestlemania 28. I personally would feel a sense of anxiety going into Punk vs Taker at Wrestlemania. Also, going into many of Undertaker's streak matches we've been certain he is going to win but that doesn't stop them being hugely entertaining and in many cases the main attraction at Wrestlemania.
Show vs Ryback would be a great monster match IMO. but i dont think it should be for the title. maybe on the lower card of mania to build up towards the bigger matches. I can see Ziggler defending his title in a triple threat against Orton and Sheamus (unless they save Sheamus for The Undertaker, then just go with the one on one)
CM Punk vs Undertaker has money written all over it. Title vs streak. But will they really risk Undertaker putting the title on Taker when they know that he will need to drop it pretty much straight away due to his current status and limitations. CM Punk should IMO be the main event of Wrestlemania. His ultimate quest for respect should end with him closing WM as the WWE champion. Punk somehow beats the Rock at Rumble (Shield, Maddox, Hayman or Cena shenanigans) leading to the eventual The Rock vs CM Punk (c) vs John Cena - WWE Title match.
The Rock vs CM Punk (c) vs John Cena - WWE Title match
Sheamus vs Dolph Ziggler (c) vs Randy Orton - World Title match
The Undertaker vs Brock Lesnar
Ryback vs The Big Show
IMO those will be the top four matches. Unless they go for Taker vs Sheamus, Dolph vs Orton, and Ryback vs Lesnar. which would free up show for another match
Now that is a better storyline.
