The Rock didn't lose to Steve Blackman or Flash Funk clean in 2 minutes when he was coming up. The Rock didn't get outsmarted by Sunny and positioned, booked, and written to be a lesser star and a stepping stone to a woman when he was coming up. The Rock didn't go into his first Wrestlemania to be sabotaged by a booking team that liked the other guy so much more. The Rock didn't get fired from the company twice and be exiled from it the first time for the better part of a decade. And TNA is a different product with different rules, and most importantly a different booking team without that Connecticut trust-fund cunt leading Team Steph.

I do have one question for anyone who might feel that Dwayne Johnson "owes" the business. Is it just him, or is it anyone who moved on to other things? Should Luna Vachon get heat for running a towing company instead of working on RAW? Should Maven be critiqued on his Home Shopping Network bits instead of wrestling?

Or is it only the ones who go on to highly visible careers in movies that owe something? Why do Johnson (who left after putting people over, doing the traditionally "right thing") and Lesnar (who did not; except for making Eddie a legitimate star) get called sell-outs who "forgot where they came from" when someone who retires to do some regular job get credit (as they should) for moving on and making it without falling into a sea of addiction?
