They might as well have just cut back to them at the desk looking right into the camera going "oh my god, isn't the Rock just, like, SO funny you guys? He's just amazing, isn't he? Oh how we've missed him."
Maybe nobody else put too much effort into hating that aspect of that promo, but it just bugged me. Whenever they did it I just wanted to reach through my screen and slap them. Maybe it's just because I don't find the Rock to be at all funny, I dunno. Just pissed me off.
nah i absolutely agree with you man. It's frustrating as hell and it totally deflates the intensity of the promo.
Don't waste your money on The Call. It ends with Big Show sitting on a bench covered in cheetos, looking at the camera with a wide ass grin and saying "It ain't easy...", falls asleep and farts. Fade to black
