Has the Rock's return tarnished or "bettered" his legacy for you?
 
Ever since his return in February 2011, I've only liked 2 things that the Rock has done. His return promo when he was unveiled as the guest host for Mania 27 and his Survivor Series promo at Madison Square Garden. Everything else, I just plain out didn't like or just found extremely underwhelming. His feud and match with Cena was underwhelming, ditto for his Punk feud etc.

Before Rock's return, he was regarded as this mythical figure in WWE history who was an absolute legend, and was far above professional wrestling at that point. Well, 2 years later, have you guys changed your outlook towards the Rock and his career at all after all the matches, all the promo, vignettes etc? And if so, is has it made Rock's legacy even greater for you, or has it tarnished Rock's legacy for you?

EDIT: There is no doubt Rock is the biggest box office draw that WWE has, but let's leave that out of this discussion. Base this PURELY out of whether you like the Rock more or not since his return.

It hasn't 'tarnished his legacy', I don't take wrestling that seriously. But I haven't really enjoyed it and I don't think anyone can dispute that it has been extremely underwhelming aside from the obvious nostalgia factor.

I soured on the rock from his promo at the royal rumble but this monday he showed he still has it on the mic; it reminded me of his return promo. I still love the guy and he's still my favorite wrestler. The feud with Punk, while the matches weren't that good, was full of intensity and it was a lot better than Rock/Cena.

I'm not sure why anyone would think his current tenure would tarnish the legacy that he cultivated in the WWE.

It's completely subjective. To some people, it might. To others, it might not have. Some people may have enjoyed the hell out of him in the Attitude Era, but might not have liked him in his return or vice versa.

-I enjoyed his return promo and one/two promos against Cena

-Other than that,I don't feel like I am watching The Rock.It feels like I am watching Rock morph into Cena

-Rocky fans would argue with statistics.Not going to argue that he didn't improve the PPV buys though

-Best moment:Rock's return promo

-Worst moment:Rock beating Punk to win the championship

-Has he over-stayed his welcome:Somewhat considering his star power makes WWE focus just on him

Neither. It is what it is, he came back and boosted ratings for a bit. Gave us some good segments, and after WM he'll likely ride off into the sunset.

The Rock was one of my GOAT his return against Cena and Punk has made him drop about 15 - 20 places.

It just became glaringly obvious how overrated, suck up/pandering, repetitive one trick pony he is. His shtick is for kids and lazy people.

His previous work is still safe and holds a special place in my heart but probably a lot more for child nostalgia than anything else.

I don't see how he has worsen his legacy. Sure he isn't the same as before but people need to realise that this is the modern day WWE where babyfaces will sound cheesy and make kiddy jokes. Just look at CM Punk's face run in 2012. Rock hasn't been horrible on the Mic as people like to make out either. His first segment with Punk was great because Rock did his part. He clearly showed the importance of the match and he put Punk over as well by describing how dangerous he is. Some on here think it was horrible because Rock said "Cookie Puss" but that's just silly. You cannot judge a promo by just one word and ignore the rest of the promo.

The fact that people on here are praising the CM Punk and Rock feud shows how well Rock has contributed to the feud (well both Punk/Rock have contributed equally to the feud so kudos to them).

The Rock's promos since his return have been better and more entertaining that anyone else on the roster other than CM Punk's promos as a heel during his title reign. If anyone disagrees than please post videos of promos that were better. How anyone can criticize The Rocks promos in comparison to today's superstars is incredible.
