I just love the blind love some people have for the Rock.....Last year it was "the Rock has to hold back because Cena isnt on his level on the mic" and now they are saying "the Rock has to hold back because he is the babyface and he cant go where Punk can go because WWE wont let him" guess what guys...Rock can do w/e he wants and the is what the Rock does...that has been his basic layout for promos since the late 90s so dont say he is only doing this because WWE wont let him do anything else...he is doing it because that is what he has always done....

And you can all say what you want about Punk and how he might not be on the level that the Rock is on the mic but you are all so far from the truth it isnt funny....The fact of the matter is that these two guys have a different style for promos:

The Rock is about throwing out insults, making people laugh, and getting the crowd involved

Punk is about making what is talking about sound like the most epic thing at the moment

This doesnt make either one of them better than the other, and quite frankly I think that they both did what they were suppose to do....Hopefully Punk gets more mic time though when the Rock is in the ring next time because tonight when the Rock was in the ring Punk's section was relatively smaller...But this epic war of words will destroy last years Cena/Rock war of words last year and I can not wait for it to keep coming....

also props for Punks saying "Come Royal Rumble understand when you step into the ring.....Your arms are just too short to box with GOD!!!"

probably the best line I have heard in a promo in a very long time....

Talk about a match selling promo. Punk was shooting* high, Rock was right there with him. You can go back and forth on who had the better lines, both guys hit it out of the park. A little too much shtick for my taste but that's part and parcel. Great chemistry at work.

I hope they keep turning the heat up. Throw everything into the mix. Face-to-face confrontations, in-ring blow-ups, backstage brawls; the whole shebang.

*not that shooting

Look at the intensity between the two. How anyone can criticize this segment baffles my mind. Both Punk and The Rock brought it tonight. The Royal Rumble PPV needs to hurry the fuck up.

Its not about holding back, its about not coming in a few times a year just to bury everyone on the roster. He's supposed to be there to help elevate others, not tear them down. Cena is an exception because his legacy is already established, with him being one of the greatest ever. There's a reason why The Rock didn't even bother to say anything significant on camera to R-Truth or The Miz before SS, and why, while he still gave his classic insults, he made sure to put Punk over tonight, which is something that I appreciate.

I don't think it's a matter of being held back. People today want to see guys tear down the product and say everything that's wrong with it. That's pretty much Punk's entire act.

Just not productive for Rock to come in and do that. Triple H did that to Punk and just put a knife in his face turn. It's not productive for a vet to come in and just sh** on why the youth isn't as successful and will never be as successful as he was.

Brye, I think you're right. People can't just enjoy the segment. For some of you guys it has to be about owning the other on the mic. Don't even know why "Rock being held back" is even brought up

Even though I thought individually Punk was a brilliant promo and Rock was good, the point is both men worked very well together and made for a great dynamic. Punk was ON with his heel work and Rock does what he's known for and that's intensity mixed with off the wall jokes to hype up the crowd. It was a very entertaining segment and I'm compelled for what's next in the feud.

I really doubt the Rock was holding back because of WWE's PG policy.

All Rock has to do is say he got triple the ratings Punk gets, and that he's a skinny mid card champion. The Rock doesn't do that because he's there to get Punk and their ppv match over because he's a pro.
