Rock will retire well past is prime and not as good, as opposed to leaving at his peak in 2004. So I feel he slightly hurt his legacy.

Tarnished. Wish he wouldn't jump around and shake his roided up arms and do that roid pose before doing the people's elbow. His matches and promos have been really underwhelming. The Rock was my favorite guy back in the day too.

Re: Has the Rock's return tarnished or "bettered" his legacy for you?

I was too young to enjoy wrestling before Rock left, but from every AE episode of Raw I've watched and every Rock promo I've ever seen, this Rock is fucking horrible. He has literally lost any sort of charisma.

I'm not exaggerating this, and I'm not really a Punk mark in particular, but it is ridiculous how his current run has gone. I feel that it's like he's not a wrestler anymore, he does legitimately feel like a movie star making a cameo appearance. I can not take his current run seriously and his 2 matches with a reliable worker in Punk have been absolutely awful.

But you really can't tarnish a legacy IMO, he is what he is and he still is the 2nd most successful wrestler of all time and he is one of the most charismatic too.

th sad truith that al of u cant ceem to grrasp is dat wrestlig is getig les poplar each day and no bodde caires abot it

vinse is senile at this poiint and th growth of tna has pleateuaed nd roh has nevr bin mor than his a crapy cult

People want Rock to bury the whole roster like he did back in the day thats why they have this stupid notion on their heads that this is not The Rock,fans actual fans not some kid who goes to youtube and thinks he saw Rock in his prime would understand why he had to change and why is better for the product and the credibility of the people he fights

as i see it he has made his star even bigger by entertaining a new audience and has brought back a lot of older fans by givin us a lot of memorable moments and as for the business itself well he just put 2 of the biggest Manias of all time back to back one of them being the biggest money show the industry has seen and by the looks of it hes going for the 3rd and 4th when he goes against Lesnar at 30

I would say neutral. I never really liked him that much in the first place. He can be a great talker but he has never been better than average in the ring.

Re: Has the Rock's return tarnished or "bettered" his legacy for you?

The Rock is the same as he was before. In fact, he is better because he came back because HE WANTED TO. McMahon didn't beg him. Rocky wanted to. He is a retired superstar and didn't need to wrestle but he came back because people wanted to see him. The only way he could tarnish his legacy is if 20 years from now, he is pulling a Hogan and wrestling. He is 40 years old for crikes sake, no legacy tarnishing here.

Check out the pilot for my webshow WISHFUL THINKING. It is a show about a college student who fucks up his day and a Genie grants him the opportunity to do it all over again and he finds new and creative ways to fuck it up even more.

Watch Episode 2 of WISHFUL THINKING
The Test: Rob gets caught cheating on a test and has a chance to go back and do it again

Watch Episode 3 of WISHFUL THINKING.
The Date: Rob tries not to fuck up a hot date and does it anyways.
