I really don't think Rock's delivery is as good as it use to be. He sells the serious *ss kicker stuff very well because he is a brick wall, but in regards to his style, look, and overall presence it really just doesn't feel the same. Maybe it's just age, but you just don't get aura out of him anymore.

I think that was a fantastic promo overall but mostly because of Punk. He really did his job to suck the life out of the crowd, make you feel the Rock is actually returning but also display that he's just another false hope. Above anything else today's promo really sold me on the Streak vs Streak and Rock vs Brock.

I thought it was brilliant, and definitely one of the highlights of the night. I loved it, and I agreed with most of what he said. It was awesome.

I'll repost my thoughts on it from the Rock/Punk discussion thread:

It seems not a lot of people liked the first part of the promo before Rock came out and found it nonsensical and boring. I absolutely disagree. In my opinion it served as to for once and for all put a lid on any other beef Punk may have had leading up to that point. It was punk emerging as the victor, still champion, still here, still defiant. It crystalized his entire philosophy and helped him discard his previous, whiney gimmick and replace it with a much more credible, much more serious style. It was like watching him take off his ring attire and put on a suit of armor and preparing himself for a real war against the rock, and not just his previous opponents. He knew he wouldn't be able to pull the same shit against the Rock in that gimmick and therefore he "suited up" into his main event armor so to speak.

What so called diferent style was Rock trying to use then? He always does insults. Kung pao was just a bad one. Kids loved it though. lol

I know that Rock is gonna win, but I honestly could care less who wins this match, as long as the match gets atleast 30 or near there. I just want to see a clinic between these two.

And I'm definitely gonna buy RR on PPV to see my boy face Rocky because I've been a fan of Punk for several years and seeing him face The Rock is gonna be a kickass moment for me, personally.

Without doubt, Punk's speech was the highlight of the entire show. He's unstoppable on the mic. Hell, I think he even owned the Rock on the Mic.

True.

With that promo he killed the cowardly heel and announced 'The best in the world' Punk was back.

The Punk feud will be the perfect progression into a Rock/Brock Wrestlemania match because of the Heyman involvement. The Rock further legitimizes Punk on his way to the feud this way.

I expect Heyman to either abandon Punk for Lesnar and have Punk be a tweener going into an Undertaker feud or keep Punk as a heel that's affiliated with Lesnar through Heyman.

This will be the best RR/Road to Wrestlemania in years.

I was with him until he started talking about he didn't need the WWE Universe to be where he is today. Which is total bullshit. Had he not gotten over with his 6/17 promo he would be jobbing right now.
