The Rock's Toronto heel promo (2003) or Shawn Michael's Montreal heel promo (2005)?

Which was better?

The Rock's promo-
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x53...?search_algo=2
Two of the greatest heel promos,I personally think Rock's promo(but let me be honest here,I thought some of the Rock's cusswords were offensive and inappropriate)because before Rock began to talk the crowd was chanting Rocky and after Rock ended up doing the promo the crowd was chanting 'Rocky Sucks'.It means Rock made crowd hate him whereas Shawn had legit heat in Montreal for screwing Bret so even if he had stood there saying nothing the crowd would've still booed him.But Shawn's promo was bigger as this was the first time he was appearing in Montreal after the Montreal screwjob.

Without doubt Rock's promo.

For the simple reason that HBK used one of the biggest heat magnets in the history of professional wrestling to get heat. Rock simply owned the crowd for no good reason and aside from trashing Toronto he didnt really use any cheap heat.

Having Bret's music play in Montreal while the man who was involved in the Screwjob is in the ring trashing both Bret and Montreal is the cheapest of cheap heat.

I would lean slightly towards Rock since as previously stated HBK didn't have to do much to get massive heat, but i still think both of them shit on anything we've seen since then. Rock & HBK are great at getting the fans to either cheer/boo them so these videos just show how great they really were. I hope we can keep this a civil thread and not have it turn into another god awful "overrated" thread.

Easily the Rock, it was both easy for them to get heat but Rock actually had to work to get it. HBK would have been hated no matter what, plus I can watch Rock's promo everyday and never get bored.

Shawn's by a mile. Just look at how he played the crowd. When Bret's music hit, the entire arena was jumping up and down like the student section at a Duke basketball game. The fact that he used a huge heat magnet doesn't take away from the fact that he was in a position to draw that nuclear heat. He elicited pops from the crowd not once, but twice. Shawn's taunting and denigration of Bret and Canada after "getting their hopes up just a little bit" is LOLworthy.

-I don't think they are great heel promos but They were no doubt entertaining.Both promos consisted of too much cheap heat

-Overall:Rock's promo was better easily

-But when Bret's music hit,I marked out more.That single moment was better than any moment in Rock's promo
