Haha. I do think 2003 hollywood Rock was probably the best for me. Very entertaining heel.

1999-2000 was the best face/tweener version to me.

I don't see how anything has been tarnished, the Rock's legacy is cemented as one of the greatest wrestlers of all time regardless. Bettered is debatable.

It's good to see him back, but he just wasn't who he used to be.

Bettered definitely.

The positives far outweigh the negatives, he's provided many classic moments & encounters since he returned.

Also i think in a few years time some people will be able to look back on this run & appreciate it a bit more.

I don't have a problem with it...there has been a few mishaps but he hasn't tarnished anything. He's here to sell out crowds and entertain...He is 40 years old...He can't be the person he was when he was 25.

Don't have a real problem for it. If anything it's made him look better (outside of the IWC). Did you see the WM 28 PPV buys? This years is going to be even bigger. This run has proven how big he's become.

I have definitely been less entertained than I expected. Maybe I just expected too much though.

Only two things that have bothered me about his return:

-Rock's mic skills have diminished


-Rock's win over Punk to win the WWE championship.Makes no sense

They just tried to make the title prestigious again. I can see it's purpose, and I think it worked.

Look, some of his work since his return has been pants, lets be honest. But I still look forward to seeing him on TV and I watch every second of his tv time unlike a some wrestlers who I just reach for the FF button when they are on screen. I will be sad to see him go but I won't pine for him when he does
