Re: How exactly did Rock's promo on Billy Gunn "end" his career?
That promo was pretty piss-poor. I don't see how it could of ended someone's career. All the Rock did was his catchphrases, like a lot of his other promos. Billy Gunn was never meant to be taken seriously, so that promo didn't bury him in anyway.
IIRC, that was actually the promo where the whole "IT DOESN'T MATTER- thing started.
And the Rock's promos weren't ever about content, he basically says nothing for seven minutes, Rock is all delivery, and his delivery was fucking gold in that.
