WWE officials are faced with two issues right now as far as The Rock winning the WWE Title at the Royal Rumble goes.
One is that The Rock winning the WWE Title will mean there are no WWE Title defenses at any live events for a three-month period.
They will also have to work out with The Rock whether or not he will be available for the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view and whether they want him to work that event. Those details may have already been worked out as it was a topic largely talked about among some of the WWE talents this past week.
It's coming down to the wire in terms of needing to have a set plan and commitments to dates considering the hectic movie promotion schedule Rock has in early 2013.
With the challenges they are facing, it's said that nothing has changed - the plan is still for The Rock to win the WWE Title at Royal Rumble, from CM Punk, and main event at WrestleMania 29, possibly against John Cena.
