With a lot of superstars complaining about the Rock being in a main event match at this year’s WrestleMania, you can add the current WWE champion to the list of people who feel that the "Great One" doesn’t deserve the spot on the card.

In a radio interview Monday morning with WAAF 97.7 and 107.3 in Boston, CM Punk shared his thoughts on the situation of the Rock’s match with John Cena at WrestleMania in 26 days.

From Wrestling News Source:

 “I just think there’s a lot of us backstage and behind the scenes that bust our a– and we do it 365 days a year, and Rock just kinda comes in with his veneers and he’s smiling at everybody and – I don’t fault anyone for making money, he can make all the money he wants, but when he preaches about WWE, how much he loves it, and how much it’s family, and he loves being there, and nobody ever sees him because he goes right from his limo to his dressing room, from his dressing room to the ring, it’s a stark contrast – he says one thing and does another.”

Of all the people that could have possibly agreed with John Cena in his feud with the Rock, Punk would have been far, far down my list of people on the current WWE roster.

Since returning to the WWE on Valentine’s Day 2011, the Rock has competed in only one match, as he teamed up with Cena at Survivor Series to defeat Awesome Truth in Madison Square Garden last November.

While I know the WWE isn’t the Rock’s full-time job anymore, it would have been good to see Rock a little bit more in the past year to help ease some of this talk about him not deserving to be in a main event match at this year’s WrestleMania.


As for the claims by Punk that Rock doesn’t do much interacting with the guys in the backstage during events, that can only be answered by the superstars.

Coming from Punk, however, you have a feeling that it’s the truth.

Ultimately, the match between the Rock and  Cena will almost certainly go down as one of the best matches in the history of WrestleMania and the WWE when the two icons of their generations step in the ring in Miami.

So Bleachers, what’s your opinion on the remarks made by the WWE champion in regards to how the Rock is handling himself as his WrestleMania match with Cena draws closer on April 1?
