If availability isn't an issue, does anyone think it would be awesome for The Rock to enter next year's Royal Rumble match? We all know that no matter what his schedule is, Rock will be at Wrestlemania XXX. WWE will throw whatever money they can to acquire him for their 30th anniversary WM and Rock is already known as "the hardest working man in Hollywood" so he'll somehow find a way to make it work. Firstly, he can return to Raw during the build to Wrestlemania and say that last year he promised to win the WWE Championship once more at the 2013 Rumble, and he made good on that promise. One year later, he now vows to win the Royal Rumble match itself one more time and then go on to reclaim the WWE Championship in the main event of Wrestlemania or maybe even the World Heavyweight Championship (would be nice for him to tease going after the Big Gold Belt, although he technically already buried that title as being second rate to him when he ignored mentioning it the night after Wrestlemania 28 when he said he wanted to be world champion again.) Secondly, it would be a good way to build towards an angle with someone for Wrestlemania. Since Rock/Lesnar is practically set in stone for WM30 should Rock choose to wrestle again, I'll use that as an example. Say that after Rock announces his entry into the Rumble, there is a spontaneous confrontation between Rock and Paul Heyman at some point. I don't know what would instigate this face off, maybe just Heyman interrupting and spouting his mouth off for no reason, but if it ends with The Rock giving Heyman the Rock Bottom, then the seeds have already been planted for Rock/Brock since Lesnar has always acted as a huge protector of Heyman. (His feud with Punk is centered around Heyman and his two rematches with HHH began with Vince attempting to fire Heyman.) The way to further the build to Wrestlemania is to have Lesnar then cost Rock the Rumble match. The Rock comes in and starts cleaning house by tossing a couple of people over the top rope, punching and stomping and hitting the Rock Bottom on a few people and even giving someone the delicacy of being hit with the People's Elbow. Perhaps he comes in late so he can make it to the final four without being out there too long. Then, in runs Lesnar all of a sudden and he hits an F-5 on Rock, which allows someone else to toss Rock over the top much to the surprise of everyone. (It'd be just like Goldberg exactly ten years before.) This sets up the Rock/Lesnar feud well, which makes sense since they'd probably want to promote a big match like this as much in advance as possible. It also allows someone, a heel obviously, the bragging rights of saying they eliminated The Rock from the Rumble. It'd also be fitting if one of the people Rock tossed out was Curtis Axel given the Heyman involvement here, though perhaps you could argue it'd be fitting if Axel tossed out Rock instead (though Rock wouldn't be making it to the final four in that case, cause no way is Axel gonna still be there that close to the end of the match.) Lastly, Rock's involvement in the Rumble match would add extra buys to the PPV on top of making the Rumble match a bit more special by knowing The Rock could come in at any moment.
