Than The Rock comes out and he's using his usual nonsensical jokes like Cookie Puss. I mean, seriously, he completely lost me when he told Punk to strip naked. I mean, really?
lol please. They knocked it out of the park. You didnt even note how they sold the importance of winning, the importance of the belt or hell, Rock even giving Punk some praise. They looked like they wanted at each other right then and there. Bet you enjoyed "Im here ever week" though.

What was nonsense was the year long, no chemistry rambling with Rock/Cena.

Rock/Punk >>>>>>>>>>>Rock/Cena

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

the rock is holding back, for god sakes, idk how you people can't understand that inside the wwe the rock has to hold back because of the pg environment, the fact is the rock could easily bury punks life in 20 seconds if he wanted to, like someone said if the rock went 1999 rock on his ass it would have been over in an instant, so yes the rock is holding back, they are limiting the rock, if you people think hes all corny jokes then you obviously have never seen the rock in 1999 where he didn't smile once and was all serious 24/7.

Even though I though Punk cut a better promo, 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.
Punk bored the fans senseless with a blabbering promo until the Rock came out and saved it. Punk was very good once Rock came out though. Great hype for the Rumble overall.

The Rock is not holding back. This is what he's done his entire career. He's just making PG jokes now. He makes jokes and he hypes up the match and his opponent. He did that tonight and he and Punk played their roles perfectly.

Next time you can at least give me credit instead of copying and pasting what I sent you in a PM. But no biggie.

The Rock made his point in record time...
It was usual nonsense but at least he sold what Rock was saying.

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.
I'm fine him selling the feud but the point I'm making, he would never had to do that back in the day because the credibility of his opponent would carry through. It's just sad to see Rock sngle-handedly sell the feud to the extent he has, it effects his mic work.
