Could Hollywood Rock get over in 2013?

The question is in the title

I love the Rock as much as the next guy but I really don't want to see anymore of Dwayne "The Rock Johnson.

I don't want to see him come to the ring and stumble to talk for the first 3 mins because he is so humbled by the welcoming crowd then talk about social networking and calling Cena names.

I was want the fluent tonged cocky arrogant, I'm better than the WWE and all its universe Rock. Hollywood Rock. I loved that guy. I hated him in kayfabe but I found the character so entertaining.

People say he is too over to turn heel. But Hulk did it. And I think The Rock is talented enough to get heat as a heel...

Do you think when he returns Hollywood Heel Rock could get over?

What kind of Rock gimmick would you like to see?

I'd like to see it. I'd like to see Rock cut promos about how he saved wrestling, and how wrestling automatically became uncool once he left and now that he's back, wrestling is automatically cool again. Because of The Rock, it's okay to wear your Fruity Pebble John Cena shirts, your CM Punk Best in the World shirts, and your purple Jersey Shore Teletubby Zack Ryder WOO WOO WOO YOU KNOW IT t-shirts in public without getting your ass kicked.

He's to big of a PR machine to be a heel right now IMO. They won't ever turn him in today's environment although creatively it would be very interesting to see him being heel.

Although if only he was allowed to be more edgy or had his swagger like he did in 98 but we all know those days are long gone so he can't be this good in 2012.

Hollywood Rock could get over in 2063. It doesn't matter what time frame you put him, he's golden.

To have a character with that much swag and personality these days is almost unfathomable. It would be so damn hard to boo him because his character is so much fun.

Just rewatched the Sacramento Rock Concert. The Lakers beating the Kings in May line is brilliant and got NUCLEAR heat.

Re: Could Hollywood Rock get over in 2013?

nope. he could tell the entire audience to go fuck themselves and theyd cheer the hell out of him.

Only way Rock could get booed is if they jam him down our throats for 3 years in every single raw, smackdown, and in every single segment

Why would you want him to turn heel anyways? Hes too profitable face

The Rock could get a mop over with the crowd. He's just that good.

THERE IS ONLY ONE DIAMOND IN THE BUSINESS AND HIS NAME IS TITUS O'NEIL
