To be honest, the more I think about it, the more I really could careless about what Rock and Punk call each other. They can call each other Dwayne, Phil, Dewey, Phillip, Rocky Maivia, BM Punk, whatever. As long as the feud doesn't become all about simple name calling and/or "I'm here ur not" or "_____ is trending on twitter", it doesn't matter to me what they call each other. The feud needs to follow a very basic formula to be successful. Rock wants the WWE Title for the 10th time and to complete his journey. Punk is the unstoppable champion and has been for 400+ days. Have Punk GTS/get the upper hand on Rock one more time before the RR and then at RR, have Rock claim the WWE Title. It's very basic, but it's all they need to sell the Pay Per View match (for those few it isn't sold for by The Rock simply wrestling). Throwing in little jabs here and there is fine, but at the end of the day the feud should be mostly about the WWE Championship, Rock's desire to win the title, and Punk's ambition to keep it and main event Wrestlemania.
Edit: Also, I really don't get why Punk haters constantly go back to the same two things over and over again when hating Punk. It's always "He's a ratings killer!" or "He calls people by their real names so he's a fucker!" I mean, I don't think I've seen more than one or two posts pointing out the fact he's been cutting virtually the same promo week after week for the last 4 months. I would've thought haters would've jumped on that months ago, but yet besides maybe an odd post here or there, it's barely been mentioned.
They'd have to be watching to notice he's cutting the same promo
. Seriously though, he has haters in the same way every wrestler does, the reasons for hating them can be whatever and its likely whatever reasoning they can think of at that particular time, I wouldn't look to much into it.
Slightly Random but just watched the AE Documentary, makes you laugh and be infuriated at the same time, they basically explain why the time period was such a success and then don't seem to realize they could atleast try
to do similar stuff today (while they give veil and underlining comments like it was the stars from that Era that made it as well as the competition which they feel they have neither)
The only thing I can put it down to is, they feel Wrestling is in a downtime no matter what and don't want to bring back the good times for a time period that won't draw regardless.
