IIRC it was only EVER used on air when Punk promoted anti-cena stuff during the contract signing for SummerSlam. Even then it was incredibly edited and only featured 2 or so minutes of footage. The full video was never played or acknowledged though.

I wouldn't say it would be ego and such that would cause it. Punk is less valuable an asset overall compared to Cena anyway, so it would be less detrimental to allow full-on Rock to go in promos against him. Not to mention Punk is much more free as a heel and better as a heel on the mic and would work well as Rock's antagonist imo, any real harsh burying comments he could brush off a bit easier with an arrogance and in-your-face mic style he is currently working, unlike Cena's complete good-guy style which would leave more chinks in the armour as he would be unable to respond as well due to the "hustle-loyalty-respect" stuff.

I doubt they will do full shoot style though. It is dangerous to characters, especially with someone as gifted as Rock on the mic delivering it.

Rock's return promo, July non-WWE affiliated outside promo, and Survivor Series promo are my favorites since he returned.

For some reason I always felt as if Rock was never supposed to mention Cena during his return promo. Maybe he was supposed to at least mention him but not bury him to the extent that he did. He absolutely ethered John Boy and I remember the WWE.COM version of Rock's promo they published the next day completely edited out the portion of the promo about Cena. I think that was the first time Cena's character was not protected in terms of promo work.

Team Bring It: Born in 2001. Used as another word for "The Millions" and Rock's mantra in life. Huge success.

Boots To Asses: Sold millions of items worldwide with that slogan, got over huge, was used outside of wrestling and just last week was chanted big all over the Yankees game.

Fruity Pebbles: Created a big campaign, gave mainstream exposure, was chanted everywhere, put Cena on 3 million boxes and his attire will always be known by that name.

Return, YouTube, MSG backstage and after the show, Concert, History Lessons, Cena kid, Philly, Miami after WM, Boston in November and RAW 1000 were all classic and going to Rock's endless archive. Other great promos like Rock/Cena before WM28, Birthday, Rock/Miz Philly and Atlanta, Rock/Austin/Mae at WM27 etc were all money. I guess that people need a few years to really appreciate something, it's still too fresh to really see how great this run was so far, and can be even better if they wouldn't go with the same opponent for WM29.

Rock said in an interview that nobody backstage knew what he was going to say, I don't think there were even specific points for this promo, probably "Mention Cena, Miz and hype WM". This is a year after his return:

My dream is if the rock would return with the same hair style he had in 2002 but also with the long side burns, the gold shaded glasses, the 800 dollar shirts, the 600 dollar shoes/ pants, the cocky as attitude, the immense swagger, the whole am better than you stuff, the slow talking era where he buried everyone, and either Do You Smell it V1, Do You Smell it V2, or Know Your Role V1.

D'Lo thought that finally he can beat The Rock in something, but:

Quote:
In an effort to find out who is the best video game player in the WWF, Incite had the two former members of the Nation of Domination take each other on in a couple of rounds of Knockout Kings. The article is full of in-character trash talking between the two, but a real winner is never decided due to The Rock “accidentally” stomping the Playstation in the middle of Round 2. Incite asked The Rock what exactly happened in his match with D’lo:

“What happened was real simple: The Rock went in there, and I was whipping his ass all around the arena. The Rock’s arena, Madison Square Garden where we stand right now. The Rock was just about to knock D’Lo’s ass out and he kicked the open button. It’s just like when you used to play the old Nintendo and you’d lift the lid up and the game would turn off…… [The Great One leaves the building]”
Quote:


“Do you play video games against the other WWF Superstars?

The Rock:

I pretty much play solo when I travel, but there are a lot of guys who bring their own Playstations on the road with them. D’Lo Brown is big into videogames. So are Mark Henry, Brian Christopher, and Kane. There was one time when we had a big video game tournament in New York. The Rock was up there laying the smack down on everybody and then Stone Cold showed up. We threw in Knockout Kings in the Playstation and The Rock knocked him out in a record 32 seconds(). But who knew Stone Cold was going to play as Roberto Duran? Austin just got up off the couch and walked out of my hotel room muttering something about ‘No mas, no mas’.”
They should have done a DVD of their Knockout Kings tournament. Rock going over clean obviously.

oh well nothing's perfect I guess, I really wished they used the 1999-01 theme, that to me is the perfect Rock theme
If they focused on the 00-01 part of the attitude era alot of guys would be left out dudleys, hardys, angle,etc
