Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion
I'm fine with the way they did Goldberg/Rock because a face/face dynamic wouldn't have been as entertaining during the build up. It would've popped a bigger buyrate tho.
Rock/Brock still has potential to be a great match. It won't be a hard-hitting, all out brawl that Taker/Brock could work but Lesnar can still work as the dominant heel and Rock has always been stellar at selling and working the babyface comeback. It could be a similar match to Lesnar/Cena albeit not as brutal. They've proven to have chemistry in the past and it would also be nice if Rock is in similar shape as he was in RAW 1000 where he seemed quicker, more fluid and overall more athletic than he did on the RTWM. NY crowd would most likely eat it up although I will say the crowd could be a little unpredictable because Lesnar's contract ends at MANIA and IF he doesn't re-sign, that would right off the bat, give away the result of the match and also leave an ounce of bitterness for the smarks. I don't see this being too much of an issue though, because Rock matches usually have hot crowds.
Besides, if the report of Rock working the chamber match/PPV is true, I can definitely see him willing to take more risks in a possible match with Lesnar.
