Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

I've just been watching some old Rock/Hogan stuff from 2002 when they had their match. Why oh why can't they do something like that today? It was simple and worked perfectly.

I'm sick of this shoot-style promo stuff with this insider comments. Cena did it last year and CM Punk does it regularly too. Calling people by their real names because they think its cool or something, when really its stupid. Its like they either forget they're supposed to be playing a character, or they're just incapable of putting on a real feud. Either way, it sucks entertainment/excitement out of things so I hope they don't go this route with Rock/Punk.

But then after WM27, he changed his mind and gave The Rock credit for raising his paycheck. Punk, on the other hand, is an arrogant, shit talking jerk that had the nerve to claim that his match with Orton sold out the arena and drew the 1 million buyrate and constantly complains about not getting main events even though it's been well established that he can't draw if his life depended on it. And Cena didn't complain about "unfairness" either. He was a bit unprofessional in their feud with some of the stuff he said, but he never whined about "Dwayne main eventing Wrestlemania". Orton or Cena shouldn't be put in the same sentence as that disrespectful prick, Phil. Phil is mad because his time at the top comes at a point when no one cares enough to watch his boring ass hold the title for an entire year so it bothers him that part-timers have to come and help the company's bank account because vanilla hacks like him drive away fans faster than you can say "What happened?". Orton and Cena have been there, done that. They are both veterans in the business and there's nothing left for either to do other than participate in dream matches with legends that return to temporary help the business. They have no reason to be bitter about anything.

I just hope Rock stops kissing Phil's ass in the build-up and legit buries him. That "The Rock main events Wrestlemania because he draws more money in one night than you will in a lifetime" tweet is a good start.
But why SHOULD he bury Phil? Phil is better than Randal. Rock unlike some marks here realizes that. Which is why he won't work a program with Randal.

You jelly?

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

I think CM Punk is a fantastic talent. I don't care about the ratings or any of that stuff. When Punk is on form he can be great. I want to see the best of CM Punk going toe to toe verbally and physically with The Rock without being held back on his promos.

Keep the shoot-style crap out of it, let them off the leash and just have a great, intense feud. I'm sure both guys are capable of it, its just WWE and their shitty booking.

There's no doubt in my mind that everything that happens will be just to get to Wrestlemania where Cena beats Rock so they have one win each which is retarded but I reckon that's what they're going for. WWE always has Cena at the forefront of their minds.

This idea is fucking genius.

No idea why he's not booked for this show if they want to make it big, 20 years should be a bigger deal than 1000 episodes IMO.

But anyway, Rock's first appearance should be talking about what happened and hyping the Rumble, then in the main event segment giving Punk a Rock Bottom to get the GTS out of the way. Then in 2 weeks you can have a final promo between them with Rock selling how much the title means to him and after 10 years he has a chance to win it again. Kinda like he did before WM28 when he said that for 8 years the first question people asked him was when he is coming back.

A cool spot can be Rock doing a random run-in in his first appearance, something like that:

1:00


"Stronger than a Bear. Faster than a Buck" - Legit :Rock
Notice how quick and agile he is here? Hope he gets back to that. He was far too slow/bulky against Cena.

Then why in God's name is Rock working a program with him and not Boreton? Surely you can answer a question this straightforward. I can answer that for you actually, because Rock understands the business, understands talent and unlike blind marks (like yourself) can tell Phil absolutely shits on Randal in every aspect of the business (and is more popular to boot).

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

All that shooting stuff Punk does is so toe curling. When Punk and Miz were doing it, I just thought I hope Rock/Punk feud isn't like this.

But it will likely. Dwayne, Rock, Dwayne, Rock. He was doing it on this past RAW. He was calling him him Rock then Dwayne. Oh god.

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

Rock marks be worried that Punk is going to shoot on the Rock as they know Punk will destroy Rock if they do shoot style promos and not do lame, out of date catchphrase duels and crowd pandering promo's.

What does Orton have to do with Punk being boring? Stop changing the subject just because you don't have a comeback to what I really said. And FYI, Orton already worked with The Rock back in 2004 and went over him at WRESTLEMANIA. So yeah, that moots all the garbage you wasted your time writing down.
