Rock promos are usually hit & miss.

Fruity Pebbles is so not an insult. Even if fans were chanting it at me. I'd be like Cena. Smile, chuckle, and move on. How could that be insulting? Cena even was on a box of Fruity Pebbles following it.

Kung-Pow bitch. How...how is that even...I can't even form a sentence.

Don't think anyone will argue or could argue the presence Rocky has. It's evident. Only some things he says are bad. If he's not on cocaine, then I'm surprised. Especially at Backlash '03. Guy was FUCKED up.

The Rock's return promo in 2011 felt huge, was huge, and was a really fun promo that I'd be lying if I said I haven't gone back and watched a couple of times.

But almost everything since then has been corny, cheesy, overacting, false 'epic', a poor attempt at comedy, or just straight up BAD. I enjoyed him 'what the fuck'ing at the John Cena garden gnome (what the fuck? indeed, btw), but his loud, higher voice, exaggerated facials promos get old really quickly. His cool low voice 98-00 promos are where the shit be at.

I can't take his promos now. I usually fast forward them when I want to relive a RAW from late last year or this year.

The Rock: This Is Your Life = great
Promos about Boston's history = gtfo

I've watched the Rock/Foley promo too many times to count. YOU CUT THE ROCK OFF AT SECOND BASE. Oh, that's fun stuff.

Rock's still got it. This promo was epic even if it was not on Raw and I think I've watched it at least 20 times.

I still love the one where he asks Michael Cole if he is 'a little cum se cum sa'.

Rock's rant on the mic during the Foley/Game match the night after Summerslam '99 brings the goods too. Probably b/c it bordered on being a shoot. And Cole took more abuse.

Buries both Billy Gunn & Gangrel

I guess I really was wrong about Flair being a million times better than Rock on the microphone. The way he delivered that intensity like ONLY HE CAN (because he IS THE GOAT and you better not doubt it) really outdid any passion that Flair conveyed in his promos. I think what elevates Rock over the likes of Flair & Foley on the microphone is his ability to come up with such intense promos in his words, like when he called Cena a "wonder woman transvestite" and proceeded to have an epileptic seizure whilst making various sound effects.

Maybe.... Maybe we're all wrong. Maybe Rocky IS the GOAT, and that promo sure helped convince me that his mic skills are in no way shape or form immature in the slightest. Watching Rock talk about Fruity Pebbles and sticking his foot up another man's rectal cavity truly feels like I'm watching Jordan take off from the free throw line, or watching Pele' take that penalty kick.

Truly, we are all witnesses to the undisputed GOAT.

Rock says silly stuff that's funny the first time you hear it because its ridiculous but then you think....why did I find that funny?


I still laugh at some of his old jokes. The one about Undertaker's "mickey mouse" tattoos and making fun of Kane's "voice box" were pretty good.


However he was shit in his 2011 promos. They were funny at first then I didn't really understand why they were funny. I do like his Survivor Series 2011 promo.


His style is a mixture of intensity and stand up comedy. it works for him but I will forever be pissed because his scripted promos led to everyone having scripts now.

Rock's promo in Boston on Billy Gunn back in like '99 was fucking awesome. He incorporated NOMAR~! Although I'm under the impression most people in this thread don't know who Nomar Garciaparra is.
