“ The Rock is unhappy bout being in, Son Jose,
But at least I‘ll gone by the end of the day.
The Great one says Aw shucks,
Cause this place doesn’t rock, no it totally sucks.”
This brings the crowd to boo the Rock until Cena’s music hits to a massive pop. The Rock looks irate as Cena stands at the entrance. Cena then begins to talk;
“ Yo, Yo, Yo, Yo. Rock, you come out and try to diss these fans,
Well I’m the Doctor of Thuganomics and I’m gonna ruin your plans.
Your goin down like a lead balloon,
Judgment Day is comin soon.
I’m all bling bling,
You cant see me, I’M the Scorpion King!!”
Rock: Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa. You are NOT the Scorpion King. The Rock, and ONLY the Rock is the Scorpion King. Now, excuse The Rock, he’s got a song to sing.
“ Another Thursday night at The Rock’s show Smackdown,
The Rock looks good for all the women in town,
I could have anyone’s wife,
I am the man….WORDLIFE!!”
Cena: “ Oh, I get it, you’ve ran out of your own catchphrases,
You’re act has gone stale,
But you steal my sayings, you know you’re gonna fail!
He says women fall for him when he’s near,
Please, dont try to fool us, we know youre 100% queer,
I know you’d dress as a little boy to impress Michael Jackson,
The net would be full of the video, more famous than Paris Hilton or Pam Anderson!
Little Blanket better avert his eyes,
Cause Rock and Jacko are helping themselves to each others pies!
One last thing Rock, when I say Just bring it,
I don’t mean it that way you prick,
I’m serious, get off my (points microphone to the crowd who reply…Dick)
Rock: Yeah, you showed a helluva lot of class. Really. Michael Jackson. Very classy. And you people cheered that. The Rock understands. After all, this is the home of the San Jose Sharks. (Boos)
Cena: Yo Rock, if you cant go toe to toe on the microphone,
Maybe you should go back to Hollywood,
And make another crappy movie that aint that good.
Don’t take it out on the people if the Rundown wasn’t well rated,
You’re movie career is gone, its faded.
Rock then challenges Cena to come to the ring. He does and they go punch for punch and Cena takes control, however, Rock hit’s a low blow and then nails Cena with the guitar. He celebrates as Cena is laying in the ring.
