Re: Promo's hand notes, Used by the best !
Whatever. What's wrong with giving yourself a relatively hidden reminder of certain points you want to remember to cover? As long as the delivery and content are good, that's what counts for me.
For the record, I didn't even care that Rock did it. I'll be lots of guys have done it in the past. Cena pointing it out is what annoyed me, since he was probably ahead of time told to do it to try to establish the 50-50 split (in which case the deck is stacked against Rock), or he just went into business for himself and called him out for a probably pretty established trick of the trade for the sole purpose of making him look bad, in which case he's an unprofessional douche.
Delivery and content. Don't care how you get there, long as that's good, I'm happy. Oh, and demeanor is important as well-your body language during a promo is a big deal, but if no one can tell you occasionally glance at your hand or arm or whatever (and let's be honest they couldn't), again, not a problem.
He clearly got a groupies number before coming out.
"Every man's heart one day beats its final beat, his lungs breath their final breath. And if what that man did in his life, makes the blood pulse through the body of others, and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalised by the storytellers, by the loyalty, by the memory, of those who honour him and make whatever the man did live forever."
