Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread
I think Rock was definitely holding back in terms of trying to destroy Punk on the mic, he focused on selling the fight instead which is what you're suppose to do. He could have gone at Punk a lot harder but instead he gave him props on his title reign and said he knew how tough it was going to be to beat him, sure he made jokes at Punk's expense because that's what The Rock does but he never made it seem like Punk didn't belong in the ring with him and the two of them actually had you excited for their match. Which is what a promo is suppose to do, now compare it Cena and Ziggler feud where Cena tears down Ziggler's credibility every promo and makes it seem like there's no way Ziggler has a shot at winning cleanly over him.
The mutants think doing buissness and building the match and his opponent up properly is Rock getting owned. No juniors it's Rock doing what he's paid to do sell a ppv with a guy the fans buy as a serious threat.
