Re: Thoughts On Rock Returning?
I think it's great. WWE gets a lot of business, Rocky gives back to the industry that made him what he is today, and we get the opportunity to see Rock vs. Punk. He's not really in his prime anymore in terms of mic work, imo Punk's been outdoing him lately (although Punk has the luxury of throwing kayfabe out the window every time he he cuts a promo, which Rock doesn't do unless Cena is involved), but he's still a gawd on the mic. His delivery and ability to get the crowd hyped is untouchable by anyone else in the company atm.
The only downside I could see is if he monopolizes the title from now til Mania. I sincerely believe that The Rock is a top 5 talent, but he just doesn't need the title. Having him in the title scene does wonders for it's prestige, but he's much bigger than the championship at this point. If it was a feasible possibility for him to carry the title for a decent amount of time (6 months or so maybe), that'd be a different story though.

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.
