Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

So I guess we're pretty much going to get Rock/Cena at WM, which means Cena will likely go over. Or maybe we get a triple threat (Cena/Rock/Punk).

Oh well, as long as the next few months really pick up, I'm sure it will be quite entertaining to see Rock with the belt again.

GOATin' ain't easy :Rock
I said earlier that I hope that the crowd buying the tickets realize the rare attraction he's getting. Good to see that they're starting to get it.

In more relevant news
Quote: is reporting one major reason Vince McMahon has been supportive of CM Punk continuing to retain the WWE Championship is worry of how The Rock would react if Punk dropped the title.

McMahon was said to be very supportive of CM Punk holding on to the title at Survivor Series because he's worried if the title gets put on anyone different, The Rock might have an issue with it.

A match between The Rock and CM Punk at Royal Rumble has been teased since the summer and is something The Rock agreed upon. McMahon reportedly doesn't want to upset The Rock by changing things last minute regarding his creative plans for 2013.
That was pretty obvious. When your biggest star in history comes back genuinely just to have fun and help your business, you do everything you can to make him happy. Especially when aside from being the greatest performer you have ever had, he's also a bigger and more recognizable figure than your entire industry. The only thing wrong with this "report" is how they presented the title win situation, Rock never asked to end some year title run, the only reason Punk had a year title run is because of The Rock, no other reason. If Rock is not booking him for the Rumble, he's losing the belt months ago, especially with the almost all-time low ratings on 90% of the go-home shows, which is mostly a sign that Vince is going to change something at the PPV. In any other situation, Ryback is probably holding the belt for 2-3 months by now.

BTW, Rock316AE, I remember you saying they should've made a "ROCKY SUCKS" t-shirt in 97-98 because of how over Rock was. What's up with this shirt Henry is wearing in this vid (same night he turned heel and joined the Nation)? I didn't know they had this as merchandise because Rock says, "you were actually ignorant enough to go out and buy one of those Rocky sucks t-shirts." I guess it wasn't successful or something, looks really bland and simple.

I think they did it for the angle. I don't remember any Rock shirt before the blue bull. Rock wore some t-shirts to RAW before, like the big R but nothing was official or available until around September-October 98. You can also see that Henry had the cut in the shirt, what Hogan did with his entrance all the time, for Rock to rip it after he turns heel. I have no doubt that a legit Rocky Sucks t-shirt would have been a HUGE seller back then even if Michael Hayes was the one doing the design lol. The crazy loud "ROCKY SUCKS" chants were something special because a lot of time it got a bigger reaction than the babyface pop, kinda like Vickie today when you read reports that her heat was bigger than the Orton/Cena/Sheamus pops. Although that obviously unlike Vickie's go away/no money heat, Rock's showed around that time that he's a nuclear bomb waiting for the right moment to explode. Amazing how every arena reacted in such intensity to a rookie who was in the public eye for less than a year. That's true greatness. There's also this awesome segment of Rock after Summerslam 1998 rightfully furious how the hell there are no Rock t-shirts available for the Millions to buy:

"Where's the deal? Where's The Rock's stuff? The Rock makes millions of dollars a year, he's got gold Rolex on his wrist and he doesn't have one t-shirt. He's got 53 dolls out, and no t-shirt"
While also giving on the spot the idea for his future t-shirt.

Just watched some Rock/Farooq/Nation/Shamrock segments, forgot how awesome this program was. The slow transition with Rock and Farooq especially. With Rock always "accidentally" screwing him in a different way. The chair shot before WM14 and parking lot brawl was money. Rock and Shamrock is basically the definition of how you book a heel/babyface feud and put over both of them at the same time.

They need to do a NOD DVD.

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

Dwayne needs to win the WWE title, the Royal Rumble, the U.S and I.C Title during the build up to WM, and on the night work double duties, first beating the tag team champions in a handicap match to win those titles and finally the WHC at the main event, unifying them all into one Ultimate Championship of greatness...

...then Ziggler cashes in and makes him tap out to a sleeper hold in a 10 second squash match.

Polly fucking Anna...

at Greens Lights GOAT video.

I can Imagine Rock shouting like that at Vince for letting Punk drop the title to Ryback.
