The Rock/Cena one I remember being really good was the one a few weeks before Mania 28.

I don't even remember the 3/28/11 one except for Cena giving Rock the FU.

Re: Rock/Cena (28/3 Raw) or Rock/Punk (7/1 Raw),Which promo better?

I had absolutely zero interest in seeing John Cena face the Rock, and to this day still don't. It was supposed to be this supposed dream match and, as others have said, a clash of the generations, but all I see is Rock, representing the amazing Attitude Era, taking on John Cena, the current symbol of everything that is wrong with wrestling. It would be like watching Andre the Giant take on Hornswoggle-so lopsided that there's no point.

Thus, I never got why people made such a big deal about Cena/Rock. Not only was the build INCREDIBLY disappointing, but you had the Rock, who felt like a legitimate mega star, taking on Cena, who really paled in comparison, and the WWE kept trying to shove them together and make it work by TELLING us that we wanted to see it, and by TELLING us that it was a big deal. With Rock/Hogan, the star power of both guys alone was enough for people to understand that it was a huge deal without really coming out and saying it. It never felt anywhere near that with Rock/Cena. They constantly felt the need to try and make us care, and for me, that's not a dream match. A dream match is when you can take two names and the idea alone of them taking each other on is enough of a draw. I found it felt very forced and overdone, and Cena's no selling of Rock really didn't help matters.

At the same time, Rock and Punk does have more interest because it actually feels like there's something at stake, and Punk has done a great job of selling potential repercussions, but it does also feel that the stardom is out of proportion. Its Rock taking on another type of John Cena-someone who, in comparison, is nowhere really near his level. I guess its great for this time period, but that doesn't mean its automatically good.

I thought the Punk/Rock promo was the better of the two. I disliked Punk spending so much time waffling on about how he doesn't like the fans because it was heat obtained without any real substance, and I didn't like Rock's juvenile humor with Popeye on crack and cookie puss. However, they at least made me intrigued to see the match, unlike anything Rock/Cena ever did.

Rock/Cena by far. I was so into the product at the time and counted the minutes until Wrestlemania 27 even though I ended up being very disappointed with the show.

Rock/Punk is very one sided as my only interest comes from seeing The Rock and the possibility of him becoming WWE Champion.

bash me all you want, Rock/Cena's first in ring promo felt much bigger and more special. yes they didn't bash each other for 30 minutes like punk/Rock, but that's not what promos are all about. Rock/Cena felt great, it was something big and the ending sequence with Cena FU on The Rock was very unexpected. Punk/Rock need some fresh material and not just bash/shoot for the sake of bashing/shooting. I'm not liking how every Rock storyline is just constant shoots on the opponent, whatever happened to storylines?

Not Removing Until:

John Cena faces Undertaker at Wrestlemania [ ]

Sheamus and Cm Punk are the 2 World Champions [X] -Wrestlemania 28

John Morrison wins World Title [ ]

John Cena losses cleanly [X]- Wrestlemania 28 Rock Beats John Cena


John Cena turns heel [ ]

Shawn Michaels returns for One More Match[ ]

Daniel Bryan beats a Main Eventer cleanly [ ]

Rock/Cena on the basis that they were actually addressing each other during the promo.

"You're arms are too short to box with GOD"

That one line was better than the entire Rock/Cena build

Rock/Cena. Two of the biggest star of their generation.
I'm not a fan of Rock nor Cena nor Punk, but Rock/Cena is definitely HUGE.

I lost respects because of Miz on my avatar.
