Punk did his job. His job was to get the crowd as lifeless as possible while still be entertaining so the People's Champion could come in for the rescue.

Some people need to learn the idea behind a wrestling promo isn't to own the other guy it's to build towards a match people will pay money to see. Tonights promo did that in spades.

Thank you.

I'm sure Punk's goal before he went out was to get the crowd as lifeless as possible lol. Great segment overall that built to the Rumble well.

So sick of this bullshit. "DURR PUNK OWNED ROCK", "ROCK OWNED PUNKZ".
Hey, guess what? Why don't instead of you guys complaining and trying to get a superior winner out of this, why don't you appreciate this awesome promo, gold from both, not who's better?
Rock with his catchphrases and seriousness, Punk and his seriousness and truthfulness molded perfectly, and not all of you, just a lot of you saying "Punk owned Rocks ass" and vice versa.
So, instead of watching an awesome promo and TV, you mainly come out of this saying who was better like a popularity contest? Just sit back, relax and watch an awesome promo, not who owned who.

Are you kidding me?

All I know is Brodus got bodied, and Tyson Kidd got a rub. Why? *shrugs* who knows, but it was awesome.


I enjoyed the promos more before I came on here and saw all the knuckleheads in battle gear mark warring. Just enjoy it...I think Punk had the stronger performance overall but its not that big a deal. I definitely think they did what they wanted...and got some real interest, intrigue and some motherfuckin heat in this feud and match.

You have to understand that the Rock was around during the highest point in Pro Wrestling so almost every top guy from that era was getting better ratings so whats the point of even bringing that up....plus whose to say Punk wouldnt been as successful back then if he was around.....

And enough people with the Rock is holding back because its PG....Do any of you think that maybe Punk also has to hold back because of the PG....its not like Vince said to Rock "hold back your insults because this is PG" and then turns to Punk and say "Just go out there and do whatever you want."

They are both held back because of the PG rating so stop bring that up people it is a stupid argument...


Instead of fighting back in forth on who did better tonight, can we all just sit back and have a laugh at the difference in greatness between how the show ended with Punk/Rock promo and Cena's promo to start off the show....

Rock wasn't holding back anything, heel or face he would've said pretty much the same thing with more insults added in.

Every wrestler delivers promos in their own way. I don't understand why some fans haven't figured that out yet. CM Punk cuts a shoot style promo, that's HIS style. You will NEVER see Cena or Rock or practically any other guy on the roster cut a promo like him because that's HIS shtick.

Rock delivers his promos with a good balance of intensity and comedy which is hard to master as Cena has tried for years to find this balance himself and fails as he's either too intense or too comedic.

Rock also manages to put over the guy he's facing to build them up in the fans eyes while at the same time tossing in a few insults so in the end they're at the same level to the viewers. Notice how Rock went back and forth of mentioning Punk's title reign and talent while making fun of his looks?

Some of you ignorant haters need to realize that these two will never cross into each other's shticks. Punk won't be making jokes and spitting out catchphrases and Rock will never "break the 4th wall" bringing up the non-kayfabe issues in the WWE.

That's not who Punk and Rock are and that's not what we know them as. We know them as two talented men both on the mic and in the ring with two different styles on the opposite ends of the spectrum who just so happen to mesh so well when put together in the ring better than Cena could ever hope to be.

We have two more episodes of Raw for their promos to build up into something amazing, this was just a taste of what's in store.

So stop spitting it out, fucking swallow it and enjoy.

What a cop-out excuse. The crowd was lifeless because they are bored and tired of Punk repeating the same thing.
