How exactly did Rock's promo on Billy Gunn "end" his career?



I know everyone's seen this promo. And while it is pretty funny, I look at the comments and say, how did it "end" his career? It wasn't anything special in my opinion, Rocky owned people harder than that. To be honest I never watched that promo when it first aired until, well, years later on YouTube. So was it really all that embarrassing that he couldn't possibly recover from it?

Who said it "ended" his career?

John Cena is basically the modern day Ultimate Warrior.
Both shout a lot.
Both run to the ring.
Both had colourful attires.
Both are poor at selling.

Only thing that's different is Cena is yet to go insane...

It didn't. It might have been the reason he never went to WWE Championship status though. The knock on Billy Gunn back then was that he would get gassed really quickly into his matches and that his mic work wasn't very strong out side of saying 'If you're not down with that, we got 2 words for ya....'

People say that and mean it led to people never being able to take Mr. Ass seriously anymore.

Kinda hard to take anyone with the name "Mr Ass" seriously tbh. I know Billy Gunn is bitter about the WWE not giving him the push he "deserved", but at the time when the crowd are super into 5 other guys, it's hard to break through, and he just wasn't able to break through.

Not only that, Gunn was not that over to feud with The Rock and The Rock was on fire at that time, at that time period he surpassed even Austin, another one:

*looks at Rock's quote*

Hehe that's our Rock for you. Always owns pretty much anyone who dares stand in his way.

I really like this promo. It's one of my favorites. Problem is I can't find the better version than this on youtube.

The crows sounds like someone is flushing the toilet. Someone really needs to put up a better quality one.

Basically no one ever took Billy Gunn even remotely serious after Summerslam 99...
