Not to mention Dwayne being such a consummate professional will do the exact same thing he did for Cena which is water himself down to nothing and LET his opponent look good. The feud will be a joke and im not looking forward to it
Eh, I don't see it that way. Unlike Cena/Rock, there's not that "I work my ass off every day and you never appear" crap (although Punk will no doubt talk about the latter) and there's no non-sense about Make-a-Wish work. This is not quite as big time as Cena/Rock so it'll be different. Plus Punk is the heel and unlike Cena, he wont be protected to the same extent in face-to-face confrontations. Rock will definitely be allowed to have more fun with insulting which Punk reacts to in "shock" as it always has been when Rock cuts a promo with a heel. Even though Punk is booked too good for his mediocre talent, he is not quite as protected as Cena.

Imo i think deep down Vince is to try to kill Rocks popularity. Theyve done practically everything in there power to make every situation hurt Rocks image further and further.

I think you're thinking too deeply with this whole "Vince and Hunter have a thing against The Rock and want to ruin him". As for Brock Lesnar, "I don't care about wrestling or the fans" has pretty much been his character since he returned.

So Cena dumps on Dwayne and claims he doesnt care about the fans/WWE yet gives the guy who admitted it a free pass, how does that make sense? Everyone has heard about the resentment Dwayne gets for headlining PPVs yet Lesnar gets a free pass? Something isnt adding up for me

I like Lesnar a lot and dont want him to get heat but i just find it weird Rock is so hated but not Lesnar when there both part timers

Punk doesn't get hurt if he doesn't win the belt, but he has more to gain by beating the Rock than Rock has to gain by winning the title.

That's because it is a shot that's supposed to be against The Rock - The People's Champion. You can't use it against Lesnar because he's a heel and he really doesn't give a fuck either way. Cena or anyone calling Lesnar a sell-out is in a sense an ineffective shot at his character because he was never a fan friendly superstar. Lesnar never said he has passion or love for the business so it doesn't matter. I actually hate the "you sold out/you said you never leave/I'm still here" bullshit. It took away some of my interest in the Rock/Cena build last year. But I get what you’re saying. Especially the WAY they would edit and present those introspective videos on Rock and Cena individually. Rock usually looked like a Hollywood outsider while Cena was the Make-A-Wish/helping "the boys"/Mr. WWE hero.

Just to clarify something about this Rock/Cena rematch. Like I said with Lesnar/HHH, if it was a different situation, I have no problem with a series of matches, which can go with twists of different heel/babyface dynamics. The first match was great and fans ate it up for every second with every dramatic moment or a nearfall, 100% invested in everything with the perfect finish. But the thing about is that Rock and Brock's matches are too rare to waste on a rematch when people already got everything they wanted out of the first one. If I was going to book the layout of the Rock/Cena match, it will be in the exact same way. Then you got the dream match factor, which you can't duplicate the magic of the first interaction in any presentation no matter how hard you try with titles and stipulations. That's the reason I don't want to see it again, especially with such a huge promotion for the first one. It's a one match blockbuster, what it meant to be from the start and what it needs to stay. They even closed it with an awesome documentary in a special DVD.

No problem bro, just thought it can be used a lot, especially now when The GOAT is coming back to be the Shark of greatness in the middle of a sea of mediocrity :Rock

The thing I will never forget about this pitiful process is the video package at the end of the WM27 NBC special, that was a disgrace to editing, if you wanna go with hardcore brainwashing, at least do it cleverly, but they probably never heard about this word. Like I said in the past, that was like spending hours every day trying to convince an audience that a local sprinter can beat Usain Bolt.

And Rock probably didn't care either. He was just doing business.

No doubt, and the crowd didn't care about it either. Which is why they no sold every little desperate attempt to turn them against him while singing along on cue and enjoying being there in the moment. I have no doubt that Rock knew about the presentation of the feud, nobody in wrestling history is more aware to crowd manipulation like The Rock is, he mastered every aspect of it. But for him it was probably just having fun in front of the live audience again. He knows that he's a teflon, can overcome anything, anywhere against anyone and turn it into his own advantage, only one who is even close is Ric Flair. This rare talent and superiority is also why he helped so many guys on their way up.
