    I cant wait. Finally Punk gets to face more legends. He already faced Undertaker, HHH, & Jericho. Rock & Austin Vs Cm Punk! But wheres Cena? I heard he recently botched a run.

    • that guy over there

      its too bad shawn michaels never had a feud with the greatest legend ever shawn michaels

      • kanuj bhatnagar

        Shawn Michaels feuding with Shawn Michaels? That’s a main event right there…

        • Dan Kincaid

          That would be too close to call

      • SOBI

        Shawn Michaels would have definitely come on top of that one ;p

    • SOBI

      but when he faced Undertaker he wasnt ‘the Main’ big superstar back then

      It would be nice to see that rivalry again

  • Trever

    If WWE does have Rock get ambush again like Power Trip did but with Punk & the three new guys would bring back entertainment.

  • I’m always confused ‘_’

    I cant tell if Phillip is serious or just showing his sence of humor.

    So, two more months of horrible pay-per-view main event matches? Seriously, Punk needs to drop that title… He’s a paper champion anyway (hasn’t won a clean title match in the past two months)!

      salute. were gonna see b.s. ppvs until the rock vs. punk.wwe spinner belt will be gone by then. daniel bryan and cena should feud with bryan as champ over aj.

  • JB

    No offense, SEScoops, but what is Punk supposed to say? “No, I’m going to lose the title by then”. Of course he’s going to say he’s the one facing The Rock!
