Rock convinces me that Austin should Never..Ever.wrestle again.....
 
Let me clarify one thing at the outset ,that I am huge fan of both Austin and Rock .They are the faces that come to my mind when I think about Wrestling.I grew up watching both of them and honestly believe that in his prime "The Rock" was the most entertaining and electrifying superstar of all time.

However, watching Rock wrestle again has made me reconsider my wish to see my favorite wrestler (Austin) lace up his boots for one last time.Its no longer on my prayer list.

The name Rock was synonymous with entertainment and was argubly he best talker in the business.He had the ability to obliterate almost anyone with a single promo.

As entertaining the Rock is today, he is a shadow of his former self. His promos are still good,but not Gold as they used to be .All rock marks like me will take up the cudgels for our childhood hero,but deep down in our hearts we know that he has lost his magical touch.Watching him wrestle against CM Punk was the final nail in the coffin.He was struggling and gasping for breath within 10 minutes . It paints a very poor picture of the great one in the minds of the new generation. He had a 4 star iron match with triple h in his prime.God know what happened to his stamina..

The match against CM Punk had no story and ended with a single people's elbow.No intrigue,no kickouts .no in ring psychology. What perplexes me is that Undertaker who is completely out of shape can put a 5 star match at wrestlemania and the rock who works out religiously , hardly has the stamina to last through a match.

I have already seen one of my childhood heroes (Bret Hart) make a fool of himself in his match with Vince Mcmahon at wrestlemaina .It was blasphemous to see the excellence of execution wrestle that pathetic match.I dont want to see my fav superstar (Austin) repeat the same mistake.


Now the millior dollar question in my mind is what if Austin with all his injuries ,puts on a terrible match at wrestlemaina. Wont it be a bad ending for the most popular superstar of all time..

Just curious to know if there are any Austin fans like me who have sealed their lips about a final match after seeing how rocks faring...

Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair say hi to the mid 90's and 00's. The same thing happened to them to fans who never saw them in their prime of the mid 80's.

I think Rock is doing good though. I have seen legends return with less lay off do worse.

I liked the fact that the match ended with the elbow instead of a Rock Bottom.

I've always thought Austin has no intention of returning and is merely teasing it to keep the fans talking about him.

I have to say, thanks to the last two Rock matches I have no desire to see Rock vs HBK anymore.

Rock is doing much better compared to those folks ,but he is not the great one he used to be.

Remember what Austin said in one of his documentaries.He will be happy being the second best.. what drives him is the desire to be on the top.

What are you people smoking? Rock as a performer is just as good as he was in the late 90's if not better. Sure the mic skills are different, we're in a different era. He can't say too much risque stuff like they could during the Attitude Era.

If you think he's a shell of his former self you're smoking crack. His match at the Rumble was a very old school story telling style of a match, and I loved every minute of it.

lol...I am surely not smoking crack. :) I like the fact that u are standing up for rock. I must confess that you loving every minute of rocks match reinforces the fact that "Love is indeed blind ":)

Ignoring few goofy jokes,I still find the Rock entertaining.

Austin still owns promo wise...That is not something anyone should worry about. In ring performance is another thing though.
