You mean we never saw the Rock making fun of people, interrupting them and putting them down and talkin in the third person? Your kidding...

In 2006?? You have got to be joking me. . .

Re: This Is Your Life with The Rock

Amazing segment, Foley and Rocky had such awesome chemistry. Chemistry that's unmatched today.

One of the greatest, most iconic and memorable segments of all time. Legendary and a top 3 in every list for RAW's greatest moments.
Absolutely.

The actual segment is pointless, unfunny, and goes on far too long. Not to mention it has been an influence on countless other unfunny RAW moments. No different than Bob Barker or any of the hokey, jokey stuff they do these days.
Agreed. This was the standard bearer for stupid comedy segments. We now have to suffer through them all the time because of the "success" of this one.

The "full, legendary" segment is on the RAW's 15th Anniversary DVD. I have it and I've watched the DVD front to back. Entertaining, yes - but it's not the best of all time nor is it the best on that DVD.

No, until then, Rock was the charismatic, cool, arrogant bully who was self-centered, all for himself, openly said it and the people followed every word he said. This was the opportunity for the audience to get a different side of The Rock, a more personal and soft side of the character, hearing stories about his high school days and such. It's not only this segment, but the entire Rock/Sock run. That segment is so iconic and innovative for the reason that nobody did it before on a wrestling program, along with the quality of course and the untouchable chemistry of Rock and Foley.

Good to know about the DVD. And it's one of the greatest things in wrestling history and probably Foley's biggest moment but Rock did bigger and better things.

Re: This Is Your Life with The Rock

It was legendary. And then they tried to copy it with Cena and that was a total crap.

I accept Hayley Williams rep.

Re: This Is Your Life with The Rock

I loved it. Although I wasn't a fan of the Rock at the time I really got a good few laughs out of it because I loved the way Mick Foley handled it. Both really worked well off each other. And yes the promo dd go on for a bit but it was funny as hell and the best waste of time I have seen.
