Re: Some Dates Added For RTWM For Brock

People need to get this thru their heads. Without the Rock there's no historic reign from Punk. He would have that belt a long time ago. Punk should be thanking the stars Rock came along because he benefitted the most from the Rock's return. Who else could keep Cena away from the title for 18 months?

You give a part-timer the title -fine! But for God's sake, he needs to defend it! What are they going to have him defend it thrice in 3 months only at PPVs?

Punk (And everyone else) defended the title weekly (daily if you count house shows). The Rock on the other hand, may be defending monthly.

In hindsight when people are discussing how prestigious the WWE championship is. . . When it's mentioned someone came in part-time, won the belt, then took a vacation. And the belt was seen periodically for the next few weeks until he predictably lost it in a match we all saw coming a mile away.

And on top of all that, he's stepping on a lot of toes for guys that are currently working their asses off by just coming in and taking the spotlight. I'm pretty sure The Rock would have hated it if WWF had Hogan walking around hogging the spotlight while he was still a mid-carder pulling his weight.

Tee whole "He earned this" angle. IMHO it's all relative. I could name hundreds of guys who 'earned' or even 'deserved but never got the recognition'. The Rock would be extremely low on that list. 7 year career handed to him, cut short for a stint in hollywood. . . Yeah.
Tell us more how you feel about dwwwaaaaynnneeeee.

Re: Some Dates Added For RTWM For Brock

if it wasnt fro the rock cm punk would off lost the belt months age. the belt now has prestige it means something. the rock isnt doing it for the money he is doing it for himself and the fans. people need to respect that all he has done is better himself he is a hollywood star. and the wwe are benifiting hugely from it

Seriously? How many WWE title matches do you think actually take place every month? It's usually only defended at PPVs.

Is this going to be the beginning of the straw grasping excuses to cry about The Rock having the title? Nobody defends the title 15 times in 3 months, so you can spare everyone your countdowns and records of how many Raws pass without him having a title match.


edit: never mind. I see that you've been anti-Rock ranting up a storm this whole thread.

Re: Some Dates Added For RTWM For Brock

4 dates? Maybe he is facing Taker after all.

Cena is crap.

so what if he missed 4 shows physically (2/4, 2/25, 3/11, 3/18). big whoop. people forget this man is very busy. ans has movies to advertise & make and has his own show to film
He wants to come back, say he'll never leave, hype everyone up, ACT DEDICATED THOUGH HE ISN'T, and BECOME THE COMPANY CHAMPION, and he's "busy".

Fuck yourself for even thinking that.

Re: Some Dates Added For RTWM For Brock

If Rock is Champion he should be there for every Raw, it's bad enough he's missing all House Shows. They shouldn't have given him the Title if he's missing all those Raws, but of course, it's The Rock...

Re: Some Dates Added For RTWM For Brock

Its amazing how they have scheduled Dwayne and Brock on different dates to keep fans happy but whats gonna happen when Dwayne leaves for Hollywood again and Brock leaves for good??? we will be back to Cena hogging the spotlight and being shoved down our throats Vince really is killing the business by not pushing new talent to the main event scene. And Rock being WWE champion and hes not gonna be at all these Raw shows that is fucked up as hes WWE champion so theres no WWE title on Raw for weeks thats just messed up. Dont get me wrong I am glad Rock is WWE champion but this is just not right having him miss all these shows when hes supposed to be champion

I am sure more dates will be added definitely. Seems WWE made sure to add him to dates where Dwayne isn't there first, before finalizing the rest of his schedule.
IDK, they might just have Heyman do his talking for him between his dates --- we'll see. Hoping they add him to the March 18 RAW tapings (otherwise that will be the only week with no Brock or Rock --- and it seems they really need at least one of them their during each three hour RAW taping heading into 'Mania IMO --- I realize this is their first time building to a 'Mania in the three hour era - all the more reason they need at least one of them their each week --- as the rest of the roster can definetly step it up as 'Mania approaches but they do need a huge name to keep drawing consistent ratings heading into WM))...

Pro-Wrestling Events Attended: Pay-Per Views: Elimination Chamber 2012, Bragging Rights 2010, WrestleMania 22, Judgment Day 2005 --- RAW: 2/20/12; 8/29/08; 4/3/06; 11/14/05 --- SMACKDOWN: 9/6/13; 7/22/11; 7/14/06; 11/18/05; 1/22/04; 9/12/02, 7/6/14 --- House Shows (RAW Brand): 1/31/03; 4/23/04 --- House Shows (SMACKDOWN Brand): 8/16/03; 12/28/12; 7/6/14 --- IMPACT: 3/21/13; 3/14/13 --- Ring Of Honor: 4/27/07; 8/25/06, --- Independent: MCW-1/26/08; 2CW-7/13/14
