We will see. I bet in Cenas promos he is more interested in getting revenge over The Rock than he is about the title. CM Punk made the title THE priority. Always putting it above everything

I wouldn't say "tarnished". More annoyed considering he's given us little to nothing since returning in Feb of 2011.

His promos are bad. His matches are worse. I could do without him being back, tbhayley.

You suck the blood of the afflicted.

Do I find him entertaining as he use to be? Of course not, but I really think he's bettered his image.

He's brought the excitement that anyone could return to the industry.

he can't really tarnish his already legendary career. He can't also tarnish it right now, in comparison with the current roster. He is still better than 99 % of the roster IMO.

It has neither tarnished nor bettered my impression of him.

It's not like what Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair have done to their legacies.



YES! YES! YES! YES!

I haven't particularly enjoyed his return, but I think it would take a lot more than that to tarnish everything he did when fully active on the roster.

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

For me he's tarnished his career. Back in the attitude era he was one of my favourites both in the ring and on the mic. But now he's lost it in the ring and his promos are terrible.

His return promo was great and if he had faced cena at wrestlemania 27 i would have felt differently. But the lacklustre build to wrestlemania 28 followed by an average match put my off of him. Then randomly winning the title (I'm sorry but how did the rock get the right to not number 1 contender?) all to lead to another cena match that no One wants to see again. Plus his promos are terrible, they are pointless and he must be holding back as there is no real excitement to them anymore.

The rock returning has made the company money but what happens when he's gone filming another crap film?

I'm neutral really. Rock hasn't tarnished his legacy and has some great moments. He's also had some bad moments. He isn't the same Rock as 1998-2003 but he still has it.

I'm neutral. I don't think anyone destroys their legacy by not keeping the same standards, but I also don't really see how this stint would make you look at him more positively since he's not been as good in the ring as he could be, and his promos haven't been quite what I've expected overall (there have been a few that's been great though).

My thoughts towards the Rock are more negative since his return.

I didn't experience the Attitude Era,But I have watched plenty of it online and Rock seems much more enjoyable back then.Now he just comes off as extremely cheesy and cliche,He's annoying to an extent too.

Yeah, I can do whatever I'm white
Yeeeeeah!

It's alright, they say, "You can do whatever, you white" (I'm white)
Baby, I Can do whatever I'm white
