Rock has always needed a writer to do his promos. Why do you think he was at his peak when Russo was writing for him?

Did you not watch the video? He said the third person thing was him and that was it, The Rock did the rest himself, he could've said the third person thing to 50 guys but only Rock was smart enough to pull it off.

So no people didn't write for him.

Russo was usually the one responsible for making characters interesting and distinctive during the late-nineties. It's the simplicty of his ideas that work. Jeff Jarrett before Russo - a stale midcarder nobody cared about, Russo gives him a guitar and the 'slapnuts' gimmick and in not long he's world champion.

What he meant by that was obviously, he pulled it off "all by himself" .. he was giving credit for Rock's ability to take that idea and run with it

But look at any Rock backstage promo from this era, or long drawn out promos, especially ones where he is referring to things on the titantron.. The "this is your life" promo is a perfect example of how Russo wrote The Rock's promos.

Well I say, read russo's book, jackass. According to him, Austin, Sahwn, and Rock are the only wrestlers that didn't need any writer.

He's right. Rock is probably the biggest star ever.
