It's partially the fault of that stupid ass Cena/Rock, I'm sorry, John/Dwyane, program they gave to us earlier this year that enabled it to happen. I don't want to see Dwayne trying to get shit to trend on twitter for 15 minutes out of a 20 minute promo and then he spends the last 5 minutes being The Rock. I'd much rather he be what he was in his first return promo in 2011. That's the Rock I personally want to see but he doesn't get to be that Rock when they put him in these ridiculous shoot style feuds. I'm pretty sure we'll be seeing Dwayne/Phil by the time the Rumble rolls along instead of a kickass Rock/Punk program over the WWE title. Oh joy.
Don't get this part, Rock cut over 20 promos since he came back, he talked about Twitter exactly 2 times. One in Boston in November to get over the "Boots To Asses" slogan, which was a great segment with Miz and Truth. And one in February when he just randomly used it as part of his promo on Cena, "CenaMissingBalls" IIRC.

The Rock:
"The Rock is Dwayne Johnson with the volume turned all the way up". Always will be.

That's actually looks good. Especially the titantron in the background and the dark arena. The overall numbers they gave are comedy. Selling point here is The Rock's classic 1999 Adidas tracksuit. Their People's Elbow is horrible.

EA needs to do a wrestling game, I'm sure they will do a much better job.
