Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

The best guess I heard was whichever episode Raw celebrates 20 years in January. They will probably hype his return.

Downplaying Rock for playing one would be the same as downplaying Taker as well. These are all characters, so Punk is a bit silly there. But your bolded part can apply to Austin too. "Comes out, says his catchphrases, beats someone up, drinks beer" Wash rinse repeat. How you didn't acknowledge or see that that is beyond me. Might be because you havent seen Austin in a while and he is more missed at the moment or something. Still Rock/Austin are great and entertaining and people eat it up every time.

Also, if WWE put Austin in that same bs and silly situation they had Rock in with Cena this year, I dont think Austin would have made it interesting either. Cena calling Austin Steven, smiling in his face and so on. Would have turned out just the same.
That doesn't concur with his point therefore it does not matter.

Exactly 20 years to that date is January 11,2013. There's Raw on January 7 and 14th, so would be interesting to see which of those 2 dates WWE does decide to have that show.

Have Rock be the Hollywood big shot heel even if he will likely receive cheers. I just don't want any more of this subtle attack on Rock's character like they did last time. If you want to make him look like the bad guy opposing Cena then do it the right way by letting Rock heel it up more imo.
Spot on. You could see the attempt to sabotage Rock in every chance they had. I will never forget the video package they did for Rock/Cena in the NBC WM27 special, that was the most obvious attempt to brainwash I have ever seen. I follows this industry for way too many years to know who has the support backstage and who they're trying to make look bad in the production. The thing is and always was his entire career, that Rock can overcome anything with pure charisma and showmanship talent that's above the level of cleverness and understanding of the wrestling business. Only two people in history are that kind of rare "teflon", The Rock and Ric Flair. Like I said before, Rock appearing on RAW like this:



Reality based, saying that he's The GOAT, bigger than wrestling and all the fans and kids in the locker room should be grateful that he even agreed to lower himself and save this place. Just for the crowd interaction, this is pure money. The problem is that Rock is doing record business everywhere and to even try to mess with it is a huge risk. Rock as a babyface is a machine formula and like he said on the Rock/Cena DVD. It's the opportunity for him to perform in front of a new audience, especially with the kids fanbase, to come out the larger than life greatest of all time as the heroic People's Champion is a better presentation than the Hollywood Rock character. At least for now. But I don't care if they really want the pointless rematch.

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

There is no way The Rock should defeat CM Punk.

Punk should hold the belt until WM AT LEAST.

Cena/Rock can be a non-title match.

If Punk has just carried the title this whole time just to lost it to The Rock who is part time and wont even be around for more than 3 months then its a joke.

or in the words of Didier Drogba "its a fucking disgrace".

Hustle, Loyalty & Respect.

YES! YES! YES!

As much as would love to see Hollywood Rock back there is no way they are letting him bring that character today he would be money but Vince wont allow him to bury his company like Hollywood Rock would

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

As for as I know, they haven't advertised or started promoting the 20th anniversary show so nothing is official yet. However, on the WWE RAW wiki page, which isn't totally reliable, it does state the 20th anniversary show is on Jan 7th so take it for what its worth.

Isn't it weird how the 15th anniversary was in December 07 BTW?

Also, Rock visits this place whenever he's on vacation. y
