You know it was a successful heel turn from the crowd reaction as it happened, and the reaction on Raw the night after.
The St. Louis crowd were almost silent in shock as they saw it. Even when it became super clear with Rock hugging Vince and Shane, and then getting on the mic and shitting one the fans, the crowd still seemed shocked and not quite believing it.
The next night, the crowd is full of anti-Rock signs, "Why, Rock, Why?" signs etc. Then he comes out to absolute mega heat. The fans needed a night to get their heads round out and realise that they'd been tricked for two months and the whole thing was a sham. Everyone was pissed as hell, it was glorious.
God, I forgot how horrendously bad that was. It's only because they've actually built the WHC up that you can look back and scratch your head at the booking of a unification match at a minor end-of-year PPV.
Heh, they even called it 'Vengeance' and advertised HHH in the PPV graphics, even though he didn't return till January.
in my opinion is should have been the rock vs Austin with the rock going over, then we have the rock dropping the undisputed championships to either Jericho or Austin at No way out then starting his feud with hogan which should have (oh my fucking god it should have) headlined wm18 As the Icon Vs Icon match to determin who is the undisputed GOAT with the rock going over.
Maybe The Hunk's reading ain't that good, but he's damn sure he read yer line about shoving inanimate objects up the asses of grown up men... What in the BLUE HELL is wrong with you, you SICKKKK FREEEEEEEAKK!!!
The Hunk would like to know "are you a comme ci, or a comme ça?"
Seriously how long are you going to keep this up but for the shits of it..... BTW catchphrases are not inanimate objects but if you had a 2nd grade education you would know.
So let the Rock get this str8 you are still trying to act like a big shot, like your Th3Gr3atOn3 when obviously your not, The rock says this, BC Hunk, you should take your entire 24 pound head, turn it back words like the exorcist, have it rolled down your back, and then Hunk, hold your 24 pound head with your hand and proceed to shoving it DIRECTLY UP YOUR CANDY ASS!!!!!.....................
that moment was one of the greatest raw moments of all time, the rock had just turned into the ultimate heel and aligned himself with the companies number one heel Vince. I still think to this day it was because he started rivaling Austins popularity, so they killed his momentum which he eventually got back. Anyway, him coming out wearing at least 20,000 dollars in clothing and jewelry, holding the title and the fans just booing the shit out of him was legendary.
