lol

ur a fan. Your job isn't to worry about booking or long-term booking. Your only job is to be entertained. When Rock is there, it's fun. when Rock and Punk go at it, it's fun. Sounds to me like booking is doing ok.

Re: Just how does he do it..?

The point is I don't find the Rock relevant any more. As has been mentioned, he's nostalgia. In that vein, I'd rather see Foley go at it with Punk as I'd be far more entertained, but that's not going to happen. The company is getting less and less interesting these days, and needs to try and elevate those guys they have as opposed to pushing someone who's not hanging around after Mania (which I know is common sense so, of course, will not happen!)

Undertaker and HHH will also get the same reaction(almost same level even if Rock is a bigger star)if they appear rarely.Their longevity will surely help

Austin made too many irrelevant appearances thus I am not sure if people will react in such a huge way.Though it has been a long time since he has been on television,so he may get a similar reaction.

The one person who will get a bigger reaction than anybody else is Hogan.
Hogan=Nostalgia+Respect+Years of entertainment.

Re: Just how does he do it..?

The difference in all those names you mentioned being that Hogan was dire. Yes, he was a pop culture icon for years, but not once was I personally entertained by him. Just not my thing I guess. Agree about Austin, appearances have been overplayed through the years.

I'm not saying Rock shouldn't appear and get his payday etc, just that they are putting too much stock in using him draw in attention. Nobody stuck around after mania last year so why should it be any different this time around. Answer - it won't. Difference may be that Punk gets a better match out of him. I guess I'm just not a fan of Mr Johnson.

It doesn't matter what your point is. Rock is great for business Monkeyboy and as a matter of fact much better than Foley/Punk you mentioned. I don't know what you are talking about relevance but IMO Rock is far more relevant and mainstream than any of those oldtimers.

Also nobody cares that Rock will be gone, people are happy that he is back for a couple of matches. Most of us know he will be back making movies but we should be glad we get to see some epic Rock matches fgrom time to time.

Re: Just how does he do it..?

People turn into brainless zombies when he is around. I mean come on, Cookie Puss? I bet more than half of that crowd that chanted that didn't even wonder why they were chanting Cookie Puss and if they did think about it and not get the reference they still chanted it. I bet everyone under the age of at least 25 everywhere didn't get that one, hell I'm 26 and I had to look it up. A fucking ice cream cake character from the 1970's. Way to be relevent.

We the people.

Thank you.

Also, thank you Dusty Roids for explaining how the wrestling business works. Clearly the last 20 years of watching were for nothing, but now I know what every fan must enjoy. Baa.
