Rock better than Rhodes Scholars

This is coming from somebody who likes Cody Rhodes and is a huge fan of Damien Sandow, but something was just missing there from that segment. The content was fantastic but I just felt the delivery of Rhodes Scholars vs. the delivery of The Rock was on two different levels. Sandow is one of the best mic workers in the company and Cody is decent but Rock on the mic with Punk was something epic. Rock on the mic with Rhodes Scholars was, to me, not as good as I hoped it would be.

Thank You Punk.

Re: The Rock is so much better on the mic than Rhodes Scholars are

is it necessary to make a thread about the fact that the rock is better than those two?

Re: The Rock is so much better on the mic than Rhodes Scholars are

I was disappointed because I thought it would be better than I thought it actually was.

Thank You Punk.

The Rock was always gonna be better. He's The Rock.

I was mainly happy that Sandow has been in segments with HHH, HBK and the Rock in his first year. Huge vote of confidence.

The Rock is The rock, but I saw 2 talented as hell mic workers duel with The Rock on the stick and not look like amateurs. A damn good job all around I thought.

You can't compare apples with oranges.

Rock's stuff with Rhodes Scholars was strictly meant for entertainment/comedic purposes and way more of a light hearted segment. Rock's stuff with Punk had some comedy but primarily focused on building the match at the Rumble, clarifying his issues with Punk, why he came back and was way more of a heated, in your face and intense confrontation. You can't expect a heated Rock/Rhodes Scholars segment when there's no basis behind it.

Comedy wise, Rock's work with Rhodes Scholars blew his stuff with Punk out of the water mainly because of the material. I found the former to be genuinely entertaining while the latter was cringe inducing. There was nothing funny about cookiepuss, telling Punk to strip naked and get a tat regardless of how much the crowd ate it up. The Rock is at the point where he'd take a shit in the ring, say, "This just isn't any shit, its the people's shit" and they'd pop for it.

On the other hand, his interaction with both Cody and Sandow was gold and I got a chuckle out of mostly everything he said. I'm one of the guys who was a bit disappointed with Rock's material ever since he's come back but in this particular segment, he was exactly like old school Rock bringing that heat on the mic. I understand its pretty subjective. If you were entertained by his insults in the Punk segment, good for you. I found them to be pretty corny.

That is all.
