According to F4WOnline.com (via PWMania.com), one scenario that could play out is that The Rock faces Cena for the WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble, beats him and goes on to defend the title against CM Punk at WrestleMania 29.
The other rumored scenario?
According to F4WOnline.com (via WrestlingInc.com), The Rock would face John Cena for the WWE title in a WrestleMania rematch at WrestleMania 29.
Either way, The Rock seems destined to get not one, but two opportunities to win the WWE Championship in the early portion of 2013 and is reportedly going to win it.
Logic says that The Rock shouldn’t win the title because he’s a part-timer, and instead, he should be putting someone over—like Punk or Cena—at the Royal Rumble and/or at WrestleMania 29 as well.
But if the WWE always booked logically, then The Rock would not have beat Cena at WrestleMania 28. Cena would have beat The Rock, and the torch would have been passed.
So when it comes to logic in the WWE, you can take that logic and throw it out of the window because the WWE is going to do what draws.
