Re: Has the Rock's return tarnished or "bettered" his legacy for you?
For me personally, his involvement isn't delievering on any level (three tiers he fails at: angles, promos, work rate), so there's nothing that I can enjoy. Other people may enjoy The Rock getting by on his natural charisma, but that isn't enough for me. The third one is unforgivable for me because the WWE usually prides itself on delivering great ppv main events.
I also think more generally, Rock has gotten involved with CM Punk, and there's always going to be a vocal minority that doesn't care that wrestling is a show. They think Rock winning the title off of CM Punk is the ultimate disrespect and he/WWE/Cena/the system are doing CM Punk wrong. Therefore, he doesn't have the entire WWE Universe backing him and a super mega legend needs that wide backing to really sell that special attraction aura.
He does come off as just a transitional champion. There's are just my opinions, sorry to The Rock marks. I do think this run has been pretty much a joke. The sooner John Cena gets his win back, the better.
