rock316 my bro, you don't post much anymore, wats been happening?
All good. Probably depends on my interest in the business, which right now is at an all-time low. If not for The Rock returning to save the industry for the next 3 months, I would probably watch the Rumble, 3-4 RAWs in March and WM. Then continue to do what I'm doing now which is basically just watching specific segments of the last month of RAW/SD before every PPV. For example I watched the entire Sheamus/Show program which was great, and Ryback's segments. This dreadful roster along with the bland and lifeless PC direction of the company killed even a lifelong wrestling fan like me. Although I'm sure that The GOAT coming back on a full time basis for a month can revive some of my love for the industry. It's happening any time he's involved again no matter when or where. But besides his 30-40 minutes in the disaster 3 hour program, business as usual:
Just finished watching segments of 4 shows to be prepared for Rock on RAW and SD this week. Surprised by the lack of promotion for his appearance. I don't get this, if they want to do it as a surprise, don't talk about it at all. If they want to promote him on the show to move TV and tickets, go all out with it. What they did here was some half-assed ad and random mention of King and Cole. Terrible.
The Rock Gives an Update on WrestleMania Plans
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.04.2013
He says the storyline will begin next week...
- The Rock gave a hint into plans for him regarding WrestleMania during an appearance at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour. Rock was promoting his upcoming series The Hero and discussed his appearance at WrestleMania, suggesting that an opponent is set and that the storyline will kick off on Monday.
Rock said, "The storyline will be that starting this coming Monday (on Raw), I'm gonna go back, and it's going to be a big return. That will lead to, hopefully, what will be the biggest WrestleMania of all time at Giants Stadium."
He added, "I will headline that show, with someone who I can't say right now. We've got an amazing four months lined up and planned out that will culminate in the biggest WrestleMania of all time. It's going to be a hell of a thing."
After reading this, I have more hope for Rock/Brock at WM. Because it really can be the biggest WM of all time and Rock is never throwing things like that in the air publicly unless it's all in place. If Rock said it's gonna be huge, it's going to be huge. Rock/Brock in the NY market, throw Floyd in some enforcer role, you got the biggest blockbuster of all time. Add to that Taker/Cena second from the top and you got a money WM. Two options, Rock winning the belt at the Rumble, working the EC PPV with Brock costing him the belt there, Rock/Brock at WM. Or Rock winning the belt at the Rumble, and starting to build for the match with Brock for the title at WM. Brock can win a chamber or the Rumble.
