Default Rock convinces me that Austin should Never..Ever.wrestle again.....

Let me clarify one thing at the outset ,that I am huge fan of both Austin and Rock .They are the faces that come to my mind when I think about Wrestling.I grew up watching both of them and honestly believe that in his prime "The Rock" was the most entertaining and electrifying superstar of all time.

However, watching Rock wrestle again has made me reconsider my wish to see my favorite wrestler (Austin) lace up his boots for one last time.Its no longer on my prayer list.

The name Rock was synonymous with entertainment and was argubly he best talker in the business.He had the ability to obliterate almost anyone with a single promo.

As entertaining the Rock is today, he is a shadow of his former self. His promos are still good,but not Gold as they used to be .All rock marks like me will take up the cudgels for our childhood hero,but deep down in our hearts we know that he has lost his magical touch.Watching him wrestle against CM Punk was the final nail in the coffin.He was struggling and gasping for breath within 10 minutes . It paints a very poor picture of the great one in the minds of the new generation. He had a 4 star iron match with triple h in his prime.God know what happened to his stamina..

The match against CM Punk had no story and ended with a single people's elbow.No intrigue,no kickouts .no in ring psychology. What perplexes me is that Undertaker who is completely out of shape can put a 5 star match at wrestlemania and the rock who works out religiously , hardly has the stamina to last through a match.

I have already seen one of my childhood heroes (Bret Hart) make a fool of himself in his match with Vince Mcmahon at wrestlemaina .It was blasphemous to see the excellence of execution wrestle that pathetic match.I dont want to see my fav superstar (Austin) repeat the same mistake.


Now the millior dollar question in my mind is what if Austin with all his injuries ,puts on a terrible match at wrestlemaina. Wont it be a bad ending for the most popular superstar of all time..

Just curious to know if there are any Austin fans like me who have sealed their lips about a final match after seeing how rocks faring...

I see what you're trying to say, that if Austin comes back, it tarnishes his previous work if he doesn't live up to expectations, like Bret Hart and (for some) The Rock.

I won't deny that I would like Austin to come back for one last match, but that's all I want him back for. Let a heel start up a feud with him in a build up to WrestleMania (next year would be appropriate since it's WrestleMania 30), have Austin go over in a feel good moment at 'Mania, and let that be it.

Nobody said if Austin comes back that it will be a great match cuz it wont and this is comming from a die hard Austin fan. Just seeing Austin back in the ring regardless will get fans excited bad match or not

As I said in the same thread in the WWE forum

Rock as a performer is just as good as he was in the late 90's if not better. Sure the mic skills are different, we're in a different era. He can't say too much risque stuff like they could during the Attitude Era.

If you think he's a shell of his former self you're smoking crack. His match at the Rumble was a very old school story telling style of a match, and I loved every minute of it.

I agree no way I would want Austin to come back for anything but 1 match

Rock can still at least work a match and Brawl segments. One reason why I fear an Austin return to the ring is the same reason I fear an Edge return to the ring. They are both in absolute no condition to go anymore.

The Cena vs Rock match was far better than Punk vs Rock, but the build to Rock vs Punk was far better than Cena vs Rock...

I completely second that. Rock in his prime was a great wrestler.Please watch his matches with Mankind ,Austin and Trile H

Wrestling a good match is not about the no of moves you execute but its about telling a great story in the ring and the rock was indeed a great story teller

The feuds that really highlighted how good of a wrestler he was:

Jericho
Benoit
Angle

To say he was a mediocre wrestler is ridiculous.
