Re: Brock or Rock? loudest pop of PG ERA
When I watched it for the first time on TV, the pop for Brock sounded louder. However, as loud as the initial roar was, it was a quick roar that died down. There was another roar as he appeared on the stage too.
The Rock's return in 2011 was just insane. Like others have said, the crowd was your average PG crowd all night. Nothing special really, but when Rock's music hit that crowd exploded like it was the Attitude Era again. Its a pop that carries on for ages, and only gets louder as he makes his way down the aisle. So, Rock's was more satisfying and longer, but Brock's initial pop may have been louder.
But yeah, the pop for Rock beating Cena at Wrestlemania blows them both out of the water. WWE cuts to a PERFECT camera shot straight after the three count that shows absolutely EVERYBODY going crazy.
Not enough love for Rock's post-Mania RAW pop. Another huge one that lasted for his whole entrance. God, I love that episode.
And I might be in the minority, but although Punk got a longer ovation at MITB 2011 in Chicago, Rock got a bigger pop on the go-home RAW before Mania 27.
