And enough people with the Rock is holding back because its PG....Do any of you think that maybe Punk also has to hold back because of the PG....its not like Vince said to Rock "hold back your insults because this is PG" and then turns to Punk and say "Just go out there and do whatever you want."
They are both held back because of the PG rating so stop bring that up people it is a stupid argument...
Instead of fighting back in forth on who did better tonight, can we all just sit back and have a laugh at the difference in greatness between how the show ended with Punk/Rock promo and Cena's promo to start off the show....
There were two top guys and Rock's segments were the highest rated in company history. There wasn't a revolving door of mainstream mega stars it was Rock and Austin and way below them was everybody else. Rock could nuke Punk's cred in a second don't think he couldn't. The fans have been comditioned to think the AE are superior to the current guys anyway.
Punk is a great mic worker I've know that for 10 years, but in the landscape of the history of pro wrestling he's a spec on the Rock's ass.
