Your opinion on The Rock's heel turn in 2003?

What do you all think of Rocks heel turn in 2003? I believe this is where the The Rock concerts were born and he got a new theme as well.

Goldberg debuted against him and this was the time when The Rock began to fizzle out of WWE to only doing part time appearances here and there. So what do you all think of Rocks final run as a heel in WWE?

It wasn't really a successful Heel run.

He was dissing each city he was at, causing a bit of a storm, but everyone watching on TV loved it. Couldn't really win!

I didn't like him acting cowardly towards Stone Cold and Goldberg (if I remember right it was those too) and his leather vest thing he wore looked too shiny and thin

Loved his new theme though! It is my second favourite (the first being his old one right out of The Nation)

I thought it was great and completely fresh at that time, something he needed to do. I also liked how his character wasn't just him going back to his old heel persona, he changed it up to something new.

-Extremely entertaining to watch

-But it you analyze it,he sucked as a heel as Hollywood Rock.He depended too much on cheap heat.

-Watch the Toronto promo.One of the most entertaining promos of all time.But to call it a great heel promo is stupid.He was getting cheered and people only booed him when he insulted the city

-My favourite segments was when he completely owned Hulk Hogan via pre-recorded segments

lol it was funny as ****.

He did a great job reinveting his character, and the thing that I enjoyed the most about this run is that he didn't rely on catchphrases much to produce a great promo. It was entertaining while it lasted, he tried his best to make it work, but I don't think the fans really wanted to hate him.

Very entertaining. The backstage segments with The Hurricane were hilarious!

Didn't like it, his worst character outside of Rocky Maivia and Dwayne 2011+ Johnson.

I wasn't a fan, I can understand due to his part-time appearances but I couldn't hate him as a heel. He was enjoyed too much to become a heel again.
