Re: Rock convinces me that Austin should Never..Ever.wrestle again.....

Why do people keep saying The Rock was gassed?

He got his ass kicked for most of the match. Punk targeted the ribs/kidney are from the start. It feels like people have forgotten what selling is. 30+ min match w/ Punk dominating most of it so he can't just pop back up and run around like nothing happen. You have to sell exhaustion. At the end when he hit the Spinebuster & People's elbow he was moving around fine.


He promos were great. Not as great as they were in his prime but its a different time & era. Stop living in the past & appreciate his work for what it is. Pretty damn good.

Who is Johnny Curtis? Nobody...just the future of WWE!

Re: Rock convinces me that Austin should Never..Ever.wrestle again.....

Check my thread out about Punk not being good against bigger wrestlers actually the Rock had to work harder to sell punks move because Punk is to small to even look credible against the Rock. That was the real problem here. You saw it in their mini brawl before their match. The Rock is huge and punk is a pip squeak. And thats the real problem that everyone is OVERLOOKING. The Rock tried his best to make the little guy look credible but truth is Punk is just not that good and overrated.

You're presenting your own opinion as if it was a fact, which is a very basic error to make. If that was true we wouldn't have had as many people talking about how good his matches with Mark Henry was.

I don't buy that The Rock worked harder to sell either. He was just as he always is in that area, which is very good.

Re: Rock convinces me that Austin should Never..Ever.wrestle again.....

Rock is definitely not as good as he was in his prime but he's also not at an age where he can't get close as he refines himself with more consistent appearances. It's mostly rust. I'm betting he can get near peak by WM.

Austin is completely done and would probably embarass himself if he were to try and get back in there. He knows this best and that's why he decided to hang them up. It's a good decision.

Having said all that, I'd still pay for premium seats to see Rock/Austin 4. I don't even care if they barely do any moves. Look at Hogan vs. Warrior. You can still tell a good story when one guy has a limited move set.

I'm actually pretty sure Austin's return will be better than The Rock's. Austin can still go on the mic like before I'm sure of it, just watch his WWE 13 interview with Punk and JR. I don't think they'll have him do concerts and constantly close the show with cheesy promos either, that's just not Austin + I think they see Rock as a bigger star and draw (which he is).
