He has multiple generations of fans behind him. Some who've followed him since his debut, some since they were kids, some since he returned 2 years ago. He has mass appeal and a phenomenal track record and ridiculous amounts of talent and charisma. What'd you expect?

Nostalgia.

Personally, I think Rock's promo started off fine, but went down hill right around the time Cookie Puss was introduced. I just found it to be corny, and all over the place.

I've adopted cookie puss into my arsenal of insults IRL. It's brilliant.

Found Rock boring this time around. Generic catchphrases, cheap pops, said nothing, did nothing. We all criticise Cena for childish jokes but when Rock does the same it's genius. Bored.

Nostalgia...if you are from ten years ago, people will shit bricks for you, even if you have done nothing for them lately. I'm on the Punk and Cena side of things. The guy left in 02 to persue other careers. Good for him, he has been....somewhat successful in this. However, I don't cheer for the guy because he comes around twice a year, I cheer for people who work their asses off for the company.

It was in his home town. The majority of people there had bought their tickets for one reason and one reason alone, to see The Rock!

Strange thing that just occurred to me. Lot of people whining about how he only shows up two or three times a year. That's still two times more than The Undertaker, which no one seems to mind and has what feels like a free pass around here.

Not me, pisses me off to no end. I like that Taker has his streak going for Mania, it is cool. However, how is he going to build up a match this year? He isn't around so unless we are going the road of Taker vs HHH 3, I dunno what they are going to do.

Punk was getting some sort of reaction, but it seem to drag on for too long and the crowd got stale and seem bored, however the rock had them eating out of his hand. I know thats what the rocks famous for, but last night it really stood out in my opinion.

Im not a rock mark, but i've got to give him a lot of credit for last night to get the reaction he did out the crowd.
Because he is THE MOST ELECTRIFYING MAN IN ALL OF SPORTS AND ENTERTAINMENT!

The Rock will always get a reaction, hometown or not, because people are conditioned to pop for old stars. They do the same for Austin, Christ they'd do it for Hogan even more if he ever creaks back into the WWE. Returning will mean he can crack a few jokes, fling a few insults and end up with a couple of overrated matches in which he blows up (again) and Punk becomes the face of Fruit Loops or something.
