Easy there fella. Please take your time with your sentense structure. It's hard to understand what you are saying.

I will respond to your post as soon as you clearify to me what it is about.

It's something about R316 and The Rock right?

The Rock has still the legendary look for me and I'm enjoying these moments while he's around.

really got to enjoy the rock after many years..yeah he wasnt as good as he was before but is definitely better than the other guys in the roster and gives me goosebumps everytime his music hits

Mod note: Do not put this shit back in your sig. If you do you'll be banned. No need for baiting here.

My note: Oh gee. Cant people stand up for themselves without mod support?

The Rock is all about himself.

You could see it when he won vs Cena, now CM Punk.

When Hogan came back he lost against Rock, Undertaker, Kurt Angle, Brock Lesnar.

The Rock the other way didnt want to lose to anyone. The Rock just showed his true color.

The Rock is all about himself.

Nothing he could have done would change is legendary status either way, for he he's still the GOAT and while he's obviously not the Rock of old, his promo skills are still top tier in the WWE. He came back to bring back some mainstream attention to WWE and help PPV buys, so far he's done that. He'll lose the belt eventually so people saying, "Why doesn't he put somebody over," well he will eventually. I just notice that almost every post I see criticizing The Rock has a CM Punk avatar or signature, so I guess a lot of people are still mad their favorite wrestler lost.




Top 5 NXT - Bayley's Ass, Sami Zayn, Kalisto, Kevin Owens, Tyson Kidd
Top 5 Main Roster - Brock Lesnar, Dean Ambrose, Ryback, Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton
Top 5 All Time - Rey Mysterio, The Rock, DDP, Stone Cold, Chris Jericho

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

back in the attitude era rock was so much better, he truly was, although i watched it for austin at that time i frikkin loved rock, he was entertaining as fuck and made me howl in laughter, but when it came to matches he was the MAN, sold like a pro, was just simply gold in every way


something has changed,

this isnt that rock i no and loved, this is a kiss ass rock,

i will forever hold rock in my heart as a guy i loved and appreciate in the wwe for giving me years of entertainement when i was growing up, NOTHING WILL EVER TARNISH his reputation for me,

but as the rock is now i prefer to fast forward, i just cant be doing with the cheesy shit,

he hasnt bettered his legacy for me, but he hasnt ruined it, attitude era rock whips this new rocks candy ass, and so does hollywood heel rock too, he was a beast then too,

but i respect the shit out of the guy, would love to have half his talent,

but no, this rock isnt doing it for me, he just isnt the same, he doesnt truly BRING IT anymore

Well success and exposure are hated always when they happen. You only usually get appreciated when everything is said and done, when the smoke is cleared and you have left the building for the last time.

Just look how many famous artists throuout the ages only got popular long after they where resting in peace. To many to name right? It's the same thing here.

People will be chanting, saying, shouting and embracing his name once his carer is over. You just wait and see. All the haters will turn around and praise the great one and say how much they loved him in his 2013 run. It's that simple.

WWE can't do anything. Rock does what he wants to do. After this he should be focussing on becoming the best damn actor there ever was (once he finishes shooting all his action movies it's gooing to be time to get serious about his carer in dramas and thrillers).

Also remember there is a difference between being a legend and an Icon.

What exactly did he show?

That someone called John Cena does not need to be put over since he already was biggest thing in that business and was mr Franchise for years?

That The Miz is not main even level?

That R-truth could have continued to be an awesome heel but refered to get high with bourne?

That Punk and Rock storyline is not over and you are just being impatient? How long did CM Punk had that tile again? Remind me.

Oh the Hogan did this and that? Do you even know enough about who Hogan is to really talk about the biggest politian (alongside HHH) in wrestling?

How many people did The Great Hollywood Hulkster put over in WCW and how many carers have he held back?

And sure you can come back here and tell a lot of lies and feel proud but each time you do ask yourself.

If a man who neither needs money nor fame would ever come back to entertain the crowds could be all about himself.

Stop being negative just because all the other people are doing that. Be your own man. Think for yourself.

No indeed. This is not the rock from AE and neither hollywood rock from 2003. Things did change. It has been 10 years so common sense should say that things change during 10 year period.

Indeed AE rock is considerd to be the best rock ever but that's maybe because his character was different and he was helluva younger during that time period. Hungry and with no bigger concerns. but concerns grew larger when he reached the mountain top and became the best there ever was in wrestling and later when he became a movie hit.

The funny thing is, all the guys you've listed above, including Hogan, have gone over Rock, CLEAN.
