According to F4WOnline.com, The Rock has played a major role in CM Punk holding onto the WWE Title for as long as he has.
It's being said that there have been many times throughout the past year when Vince McMahon has strongly considered having Punk drop the title, however this past summer, The Rock agreed to wrestle CM Punk for the WWE Championship, and later announced that he would challenge for the title at Royal Rumble.
Since then, The Rock and Punk have exchanged quite a bit of trash talk on Twitter, and the feeling is The Rock would not be happy if Punk were to drop the title at some point leaving Rock to face someone else at the Royal Rumble.
