Aaaaand thisbis why he shouldn't hold the belt. He won't even be able to commit to be around. I'm all for the movie career, but I want to see my champ make an appearance every week.
Dwayne Johnson really will play the classic strongman Hercules onscreen. The Brett Ratner-directed Hercules action film will be co-produced by Paramount and MGM, the companies announced today. Johnson and Ratner’s names have been attached to the project since early spring. The screenplay was adapted by Ryan Condal from Radical Studios’ graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars; Evan Spiliotopoulos did script revisions. Beau Flynn, Barry Levine and Ratner will produce. Peter Berg, Sarah Aubrey and Jesse Berger will executive produce. Production is scheduled to start in early 2013. Condal is repped by WME. Ratner is repped by CAA. Johnson is repped by WME and The Garcia Companies.
Good for him. But how is this going to interfere with WM 29? The WWE needs him there.
I can see it now...
ONCE IN A LIFETIME! JOHN CENA VS THE ROCK VIA SATELLITE!
That's all, folks.
I never thought Rock was really gonna win it. Punk should win and lose it at Mania. And Cena should accidentally cost Rock the title, since they need a reason to fight again anyway. Of course, Cena could just win the Rumble or Chamber, but that's too predictable.
This is why he should of never of returned to begin with. If he cant commit to something he shouldnt act like the fans and the business matter. It just goes to show he was only really back because he lost a ton of movie fans and came back to win them over again as he got out of his disney contract.
Credit to Bender for the awesome sig and av.

I just read a report today that said he was going to be there more than ever, and that he might even make SMACKDOWN appearances.
I knew that was a load of crap.
Commit or fuck off.
And I can't wait to see Rock fans come in here and try to defend the fact that he signed on for a movie that will be filmed during WrestleMania season. I just can't wait.
Were you folks expecting him to work house shows or something?
Why can't he appear on RAW on Monday's, and then shoot his little movie the other six days of the week?
It's not even just about the title. The title makes it worse, but it's bad anyway, because either way he'll be building to a huge WrestleMania match.
This is great news...If he misses Mania
No one is arguing for house shows here.
He is not going to be on Raw every week if he's filming a movie. If he could do that, he would be here all year.
Now if he's holding gold ill flip. That title from January to March is all that matters to me. And I expect to see it every single week.
Don't be surprised if they find a way to vacate it so not having a Champion every week won't be a huge deal. I'd put money on that actually.
There really is no need for Rock to be champ at this point. He won't be a bigger star, the match won't be bigger either. So it's just a wasted title reign.
Kevin Sorbo better have a cameo appearance!
*Drops to knees*
Bow before Da Look. Resistance is Futile.
I like seeing Rock when he's on but if he left for good tomorrow, I wouldn't care. It's really hard to care about someone who is only around for a few weeks a year.
