Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread
CM Punk's promos are good not because he says insider stuff but because his content is intelligent, relevant and above all, meaningful in the real world. When he has the right opponent, his promos are simply on another level. He absolutely destroyed the crowd in a couple of occasions and they didn't even realise it.
The Rock was his usual self, very entertaining, controls the crowd like few others but basically says nothing of importance. It's pure mindless and escapist entertainment and that's what the general audience and Vince McMahon wants wrestling to be. The Rock is by far the best at it so of course he's adored.
I think it's fair to say that judging by this promo alone the feud will be a hundred times better than Rock/Cena, mainly because Punk and Rock's personalities complement each other way better. How I wish this match could take place at Wrestlemania instead of the Royal Rumble. I cant believe we'll have to endure a two month Cena/Rock feud instead of this :facepalm:
