Otherwise Steve Austin is much better IMO. Austin has this presence about him, as Punk said, this redneck from Texas who likes to drink beer and beat people up, he can make for an interesting feud with almost anyone in WWE right now, Whereas The Rock, a promotional hit but really all i think of when i hear of his return is 'He's gonna come out, ditch some people, give us some catchphrases and laughs, and leave, it doesn't sound that special anymore.
ironically, that's exactly what Steve Austin has been doing over the last 8 years in his sporadic appearances, literally the same thing
he cuts a promo saying how good it is to be back, random heel cuts him off saying austin is old new yada yada yada, Austin talks shit back saying WHAT? 10000 times then stuns him and drinks beer
OR there's option two which is Austin's favourite, he becomes the referee
the thing is, Austin's appearances i just a one night thing only, however Rock's appearance is for major programs that sets the company's direction for a year or so, Rock vs Cena, Punk's heel turn on RAW 1000, etc…
and he got in some major promos with Cena, I don't know if you noticed but both go-home-shows before WM 27 and 28 were serious promos
