HBK. The Bret Hart fake out was awesome. Don't really care for Rock whining about how the fans booed him, only good thing about that promo was the sign that said Rocky Always Sucked.

I'm a Rock fan, but please ignore his stupid marks who say that nobody can touch him on the mic.

when you make a list of the greatest in this business that's ever been on the mic

but the truth is he was amazing

truly the most underrated imo

Rock was better cause he went from having crowd cheer him at the start, to booing him by the end of it(something you don't see anyone do anymore,being able to talk their way into getting the reaction they want,even if fans were originally giving other reaction)

HBKs was a promo that was feeding off the crowds hate.

They were both great. Really great. I love the fake Bret comeback though. However I also love Rock's: "Yay! Toronto! That's where we live!" bit. Tough to choose between the two.

Shawn's was incredible but he had everything on a silver platter, the Montreal heat. The main and most memorable part of his promo was more of a presentation with the Hogan/Bret teasers than what he was saying. He played it to perfection, but Rock's promo was a class of crowd manipulation and another one from countless reminders of why he's untouchable on the mic. He actually turned the crowd on him, nobody expected Rock on RAW, they cheered when they saw him, but what he did was cleverly using their excitement from the surprise to turn everyone of them on him. He mentions Toronto, Canada, they pop big, and he cut them in the middle. With that said, I think that Rock's promo on SD in February 2003 in Indianapolis was even better than that. Watching Rock playing with 15k like puppets, with them trying to boo/cheer and not realizing that they're doing it exactly at the time he wanted them to do it was tremendous. That masterpiece of a promo should be a prime example in every class of crowd interaction in any industry.

Hockey fans will get this.....
The Rock jinxed the Leafs. Ever since he said the Leafs sucked(which at the time,they didn't since they were near the top of the league for multiple years), they started sucking badly.

Red Sox had curse of the bambino, Leafs will have curse of the rock!

Rock's promo..

put it this way, if anyone other than Shawn, cut that exact same 2005 promo, would they have gotten the same amount of heat ? doubt it

Michael's would've gotten heat regardless of what he did, even if he didn't speak a word

doesn't change the fact that it was a brilliant promo, the bogus Bret Hart entrance was the icing on the cake
