Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

No doubt is making y promote his #SHIT every time they get the chance to.

What does that say about :Rock2 credibility as a draw?

Sorry #NoNotPunks.

If you didn't like some of his work, fine, your right. But don't see how you can base it on half a promo he did in a 2 years run.
Apart from the things I outlined which were most memorable to me, the rest of the stuff he did feels like one big twitter ball if I'm being honest. I don't really remember anything else containing substance that he said, outside of the things outlined which I highly enjoyed and thought were awesome. Aside from those, the rest of his promos weren't anything special to me.

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

Loved the entrance, animation looks money. Though Rock's face looks really off and his sideburns are off. If that's suppose to be corporate Rock then they need to be longer and more visible.

This has to be the best looking Corporate Rock (or any Rock for that matter) model in any game:

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

I just counted and Rock did 19 promos, 6 off air segments and 7 backstage/outside the arena skits(like the History Lessons and the backstage segments in the birthday). Twitter was a factor in two of them.

This promo in Philly was tremendous, for some reason is not on the Rock/Cena DVD. Along with the YouTube promo.

I downloaded the demo of this game at that time because the concept looked interesting, the moment I tried the controls system was the moment I gave up on this game. Probably the most ridiculous combinations I have ever seen. Also interesting that they chose this Rock attire, he wore it just one time IIRC in a match with Road Dogg in March 99. But yeah this is the closest Corporate model. Hollywood Rock in HCTP was great.

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

Yeah and I'm saying that outside of the stuff I already mentioned, nothing else he did really stuck with me and they all felt like a big twitter ball because of how unmemorable they were. His return has definitely come with highs and lows as far as I'm concerned but I understand that he can't be awesome all the time. I'm fine with that. The great stuff he did do was awesome and very memorable.

It could be stranger, like John Cena wearing Tampa Bay Buccaneers clothes in Smackdown vs Raw 2006 even though that was not an official merch for him and was worn only one time.

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion



The whole direction of the Feud changed after this massive and i mean MASSIVE burial Rock gave to Cena thats why they have never acknowledged this promo,never talked about it not in DVDs not in the ring and never the content in it has been ever talked about again,this is why Rock was told to keep it simple and to go easy on everyone,He shitted in the face of the company months before their match with ease even Cena said he was sorry and Orton came to his senses after this Billy Gun level burial this promo is the reason Rock is not and cannot bring his full blown character into any feud let alone his heel persona ''Hollywood Rock''

But i got to say the one thing about Punk is that maybe his massive ego and the whole being a mark of himself gets in the way and tells Vince he wants The full blown Rock now that would be money i just hope he can recover from the burial

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

Definitely sounds like something Punk would do. God I hated that Cena/Rock feud, everything looked and sounded just weird. They should have had a Austin/Rock type feud, instead they did this part work, part shoots, part worked shoots and part half works half shoots that turned into full fledged shoots. And you never knew if someone was asked to hold back or if someone went off script.

With a Punk/Rock feud, especially since it's for the title, this will be a lot easier to watch and enjoy. Even if you're a fan of only one of them.

I agree with Starbuck by the way, Rock was too much Dwayne instead of Rock. Too much smiling, no sunglasses and way too much twitter talk. Not to mention Team Bring It and Boots to Asses, the two dumbest things that Rock ever come up with in my mind.

You cannot be serious.. towards the end of 2002 the Rock started to get boring, but this is a TOTALLY different guy from back then..

the Rock back then was cocky, funny, and had awesome swagger..you started smiling everytime he was on the mic, no homo.. this guy is boring as fuck, talking about twitter, pandering to the crowd in an overkill way, and just not enetertaining in the least..

he has no swagger.

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

Rock's return promo is still his best since he came back but he's also had some good promos, like the one in philly that Rock316AE posted. Also, the first history lesson in Boston was HILARIOUS.
