When you can say one simple line and to make stadium explode in unison, that's all you need to know. Rock is the greatest mic worker in wrestling history by fans and wrestlers because of his wittiness, unbelievable crowd control, delivery, ability to sell a match in his words and facial expressions which is the most important thing and of course the most charismatic performer of all time, Rock is untouchable because he did it night after night, 5-10 minutes LIVE backstage with the crowd going crazy in the arena, that's power. Like a WWE writer said, all the crew and current roster were watching Rock cut his live promo in MSG and were standing there in AWE. Like they were watching a guy from another planet and really that's what he is, in a league of his own. Talking about Rock's many catchphrases? what they don't understand is that it's another example on why he's the undisputed greatest because every word he says is memorable on the spot and the crowd is chanting it on cue.

Instead of asking how and why, understand the power of this guy and you will get why he became the most successful star in the history of the industry and bigger than wrestling.

@ Rocky Mark

I actually said that it baffles me how someone in their right state of mind can say The Rock is THE greatest on the mic.

I know the subject is slowly steering away from Austin to the Rock, but Thee Brain you'll never, ever get a Rocky mark to admitt that the Rock is not the greatest mic worker of all time. He isn't. He is great and up there, one of the best of all times and I will give him that, he knew and knows how to wkr a crowd like not many can, however, he is like a one trick poney. He relies soley on catch phrases and childish remarks, while guys like Piper for example, in his prime could battle verbily with anyone and everyone, not relying on just a few corny lines.

No he doesn't. Not all the time.

You must have forgotten if you don't think Rock wasn't capable of cutting promos that didn't involve catchphrases or he had to rely on them. On the subject of Austin, he is great on the mic but just like Rock, Steve Austin is exactly the same with the catchphrases. What?, Gimmie a Hell Yeah, Thats the bottom line cause stone cold said so and so on. Having catchphrases in promos do not make anyone any less of a good mic worker. This is an age old concept, as Rock is not the only guy to use and constantly use them. Thats what they are for.

They use those to make a connection with the audience, sell merch etc. People act like its a bad thing or someone isnt good because they use them. Give a give a bland guy a thousand catchphrases and see how over he gets? It will fail. You cant buy that charisma and delivery.

But yeah Rock has been diverse in the past and have completed promos where he didn't use catchphrases at all or kept them to a minimum. People just remember the jokes and catchphrases because he did them often, but its not a bad thing at all. The promo that Rock cut before his match at Wrestlemania XIX is an example of that.





No catchphrases to get his point across, serious, and to the point. Just like others who did promos without catchphrases and all that jive, so did Rock. I dont even think Rock needed to rely on them because he had other qualities on the mic to make up for them. I just feel that catchphrases is another element to a good mic worker. Because it highlights your delivery and ability to get things over with the audience. Which is important. Hence my bland guy example.

Are there other superstars that are better than Rock in that area? Sure. Rock is a guy who is known for the jokes and catchphrase but what people fail to realize is that he has done promos that were not in that style. People just remember his usual schtick. But to say Rock hasn't done promos like that and/or is not capable of doing so, or only does them is false. If you haven't seen them, you should look around more because its out there. He has quite a few promos in that area. Im not saying he is the best of all time or anything just wanted to show that he has infact done promos that were not backed and relied on by catchphrases.

Rocks whole Hollywood Rock run was without catchphrases and he was fucking amazing.

People use the catchphrases as a stick to beat Rock with, but as ^ he pointed out Austin used them and people say nothing.

Rock could cut promos without them, and people who say he couldn't, simply don't have a clue.

I could spend hours watching Rocky promos.

BTW, Steve Austin was amazing and is top 3 in mic department, imo.

Austin use catchphrase but he never use it every fucking promos...around 98-99 he fucking use it every promo as time went on till 01 became less. even Jericho said it also Rock had the most fucking catchphrases and he use it alot...Rock is greatest entertainer on mic but when comes to MIC work there's alot of guys above Rock.

With serious promo Austin own the rock especially Piper he could fucking school The Rock, Piper is one of guy goes out unscripted...Pipers Pit? there's some guy Rock can use typical insult like what he did to John Cena or in 90's he always said shoving things up their ass..ect but guys like Austin-Piper you can't do that, there's clips on youtube Austin cutting epic promo tell him to get serious...

Cm PUNK is another guy, if Rock came out telling jokes like CM PUNk tattoo then punk could came back made rock look stupid...

i'm tired of Rock Mark, Rock ooze with charisma that's why he able use millions of catchphrases and the crowd really into him... there's so many fucking legend on mic and few above Austin.

i said before and i said agian, please before comment go and watch Last 10mins also of Steve Austin Tough Enough...it will show why Austin greatest on mic. If you say it's scripted but beside the crew saying is unscripted but few of interview who know austin especially Foley confirm in their interview...

I personally feel that Flair cut better overall promos that really got fans hyped about upcoming matches.

I don't really think Austin is overrated or Rock, they stood out as far as mic skills go. I just think some people are over crediting their mic skills and placing them above people like Flair, Piper & HBK because of a few catch phrases. The latter 3 were actually cutting promos that drew massive heat in their time.

But none can match the heat that Shane Douglas and Dudley Boyz promos would get in ECW.

haha, thats okay to say hes overrated, his time is through and his career speaks for itself. personally, very few can match him and there was a reason he was one of the biggest stars of all time. oh he says ass in every promo. name me the wrestler who doesnt repeat himself. they all do that. its called style and you dont change it up every other promo, you give the people what they like.
