I can understand the Dwayne Johnson/Phillip bullshit name thing but the folks out there that say that we arent getting The Rock but Dwayne. I dont see what makes current Rock so different from Rock 2001/02 ish.
Nothing. Cena threw this BS on RAW and most of them probably never watched Rock when he was full time anyway. If they really knew the process of Rock's career, they will know that Rock always evolved and adapted year after year his entire career. This is no different. Nobody is more aware to the crowd interaction and what they're ready and want to see/hear than The Rock. His promo when he came back before NWO 2003 was a masterpiece and a prime example of it. He threw everything about his character aside and just talked point after point on every problem he had with the audience. They started chants, waiting for Rock's reaction, he mocked them. They wanted to sing along with him, he cut them off. Then after he clarified with teaser after teaser(Talking to his agent after he said how much he loves them, mocking their city etc)that they really want to see this side of him, he turned in one line.
"Now you're going to get the different Rock, you're going to get the Rock you want, you're going to get The Jabroni Beating, Pie Eating, Trail Blazing, Eyebrow Raising.....*FULL HEEL MODE*.....crystal clear, have no fear, makes more money in one night than you all make in a year! Climb a tree, scratch an itch, makes Hulk Hogan The Rock's little bitch!". Brilliant. When they want to teach the kids in ANY industry on how you work and manipulate a crowd to perfection, they should show them this segment.
As for the Rumble finish. Rock Bottom/People's Elbow combo would be great. I don't think Rock won with that since Hogan at WM.
