    Question *SPOILER* Regarding Winner of Royal Rumble 2014

    credit f4wonline


    Believe it or not, there is already talk of having CM Punk win the 2014 WWE Royal Rumble and challenge for the WWE Title at WrestleMania XXX. Punk's dream has always been to close out WrestleMania and the seeds may have been planted on Monday's RAW in the promo with Paul Heyman.

    So Cena vs. Taker won't happen yet again?

    Because if it does it MUST close.

    It's be Punk vs. Cena or vs. Bryan.

    The two things missing from Punk's WWE career is i) a Royal Rumble win, and ii) main-eventing WrestleMania.

    I hope this is true as I want him to manage both.

    The two downsides from this however is the fact that it'll probably rule out Cena/Taker and Punk will be one step closer to retirement. How much more is there left for him to achieve after 'Mania 30 if these two things happen?

    I'm really for the idea of one last Cena/Punk match at 'Mania for the strap but I'd delay it till XXXI. I could also see that match being Punk's final swansong ala Austin retiring after his match at 'Mania with The Rock. It would be a fitting end for Punk to retire after a bout with his greatest rival.

    So we might not get The Rock to main event Mania next year?

    I could live with Punk v Cena for the title face v face as the main event of Mania, just keep them apart until that time.

    That also just firmly opens the door for Brock v Taker and Rock can go fuck himself.

    Punk vs. Cena - WWE Championship
    Taker vs. Lesnar - Streak
    Bryan vs. Ambrose - WHC

    Of course there's already talk of pushing Cena/Taker back another year. I'd be surprised if it happens at all at this rate.

    I couldn't care less about seeing Cena vs Undertaker so I am all for this.

    Punk deserve a rumble win and Mania main event more than anyone else and it's about time it happened.

    I'm losing hope it's gonna happen. It's slowly getting nearer to Austin/Punk level of happening.

    Maybe WWE has zero interest in the match because they have zero interest in turning Cena heel. Because really all they'll be doing is setting up their biggest star to lose AGAIN to a guy who'll be gone for another year after beating Cena.

    Yeah, I'm sure it'll be a good match, but I'm not going to lose any sleep over never seeing it.

    Cena v Taker is inevitable, the lack of top talent either man has to work with at Mania has got to mean thats coming, Cenas only other option is the final Punk match and takers only other option is Brock and if Brocks taken up by Rock Punk will be the guy missing out.

    I see it this way, there are 6 guys WWE will throw into those top 3 matches at Mania:

    Rock
    Brock
    Taker
    Cena
    Punk
    HHH

    Triple H has worked allll of those guys multiple times so I will be surprised if hes even in Mania but either way theres very limited ways left of shuffling those 6 guys around to feuds we havent had in this era or areant about to have at SummerSlam:

    Rock v HHH - I doubt this will happen
    Taker v Brock
    Rock v Brock
    Cena v Taker

    And thats about it.

    Cena Vs Punk as the main event would be awesome. However I don't know who will face The Undertaker. Because am pretty sure The Rock Vs Brock Lesnar will be happening. So that only leaves one megastar Triple H. But know one wants that match. So I presume they will bring back Batista too take on The Undertaker.

    Which is ridiculous because there's a legitimate reason why Austin/Punk will never happen, that being Austin will never get in a ring again.

    That doesn't apply to Cena or Taker. WWE is just choosing not to do it.

    That probably is the reasoning, but it's not good enough reasoning imo. Cena's not going to lose value as a draw because he came up short against the guy who everyone comes up short against at Mania. Just give him a big win afterwards (i.e. beating Lesnar last year after losing to Rock) and the Cenation will forget all about it.

    Also, if he ends up facing Punk, he better lose that match anyway. Because a Cena victory over Punk does nothing for anyone.

    WWE should have done it years ago. They're never going to switch Cena so I'm not even sure I want to see it without any interesting pay-off.

    Wait... how do we know Punk would be challenging John Cena? I'm OK with Punk winning the Royal Rumble and being in the main event at WM. But I'm not feeling another match against John Cena. There's other guys that could be WWE Champion by Wrestlemania XXX. WWE could still give us Taker/Cena and Punk vs. the WWE Champion.

    If he's closing the show, he's facing Cena. That goes without saying.

    Not necessarily. Shawn Michaels vs. Undertaker was one of the most anticipated matches going into WM 25 and it didn't go on last. Same thing can be said for Rock/Hogan. Cena vs. Undertaker going on at the middle-to-late stage of Wrestlemania would be a good point for the fans to catch their breath. Then they could have a filler match and CM Punk can have his moment closing out Wrestlemania.

    So you cite two of the biggest mistakes in WrestleMania history and you say they should do it a third time. Of course.

    The only problem with that is if they do go the route of Cena beating Taker, regardless if he turns or not, that would be the moment everyone talks about. It'd be WM 18 all over again.

    It's irrelevant because Punk is not closing the show against anyone not named John Cena. If you think otherwise, you have learned nothing over the past eight years.

    Sometimes these hugely anticipated matches going on last puts more pressure on them. As long as you steal the show it doesn't matter where you are on the card.

    I completely agree with that last statement. But Cena/Taker would pretty obviously steal the show if it did happen, so again, it would be a mistake.

    You're arguing in favor of something that has zero chance of happening. For all the opportunities WWE has given Punk, they are not going to let him close WrestleMania over both Cena AND Taker. It's not happening. If he closes, he's facing Cena, period.

    We're discussing Cena and Taker, guys with 30+ years experience combined, therefore 'pressure' is irrelevant with those two.

    I would be incredibly dismayed if 'Taker/Cena doesn't happen at WrestleMania XXX. It's just a must-see; really, it's that simple. Very rarely do you have Dream Match + Ability to Happen in wrestling, so they have to capitalize on that.

    That said, I'd love to see Punk win the Rumble and main event 'Mania. Dilemmas.

    I read that wrong and thought he wanted the pressure to be on Punk.

    You think Cena and Taker are going to choke under the pressure? Do you know nothing about either of these guys, Justin?

    Come on.
