Default Re: punk promo pre-rock entrance

Lol.
Some of you smarks make me laugh. You guys make it seem like this whole promo was real and they were really talking shit for real, for the whole segment. All of you who say "Rock owned Punk" and "Punk owned Rock" are so funny.

Maybe focus on the awesomeness of the promo and the feud and amazing word exchanges instead of "HERR HE OWNEDZ HIM" Goddammit.
Not hating, just needed to get my feelings out, because this is stupid to me, and don't bother arguing with me. I have seen people say that Rock backed off and shit with Punk and vice versa, people, scripted, remember? They are scripted to act like that. No one owned the other if its scripted and Rocky and Punk were told to act the way they did. Yes, they have loop holes to say what they say, but they have to stay on a consistent basis, made by WWE management and writers.

Lol. Both are told what to do. One cant own another if they can't express their true feelings, when they're told what to do and how to act. Punk could be a pussy next confrontation, doesn't mean he got owned. Just my two cents.

Default Re: CM Punk Promo... I'm Sorry.

I disagree for 2 big reasons.

For one, he only looked good before The Rock came out. Once The Rock came out, he looked like a little weenie by comparison. The only part where Punk actually mounted any verbal offense fell flat for me because he was threatening a dude who is almost literally twice as strong as him, faster than him, and much bigger in stature.

My girlfriend laughed at out when Punk made the threats, and when I asked why after the show, she said because it was impossible to take him threatening The Rock seriously. It just seemed awkward.

And two: The "good part" of the promo, before The Rock came out. . .yeah, it sounded familar. Why you ask?

Skip to 2 minutes in:



Basically the same shit. "I got you to cheer for me, I don't give a shit about any of you. I manipulated you all. I was lying all along". Brings up super heroes. Attacks the fans. Calls the fans puppets. Says he hates the fans and that he's better than them. Says each and every thing in both promos.

The only really difference is that he's calling himself the "devil" in that promo instead of "god". It was just a recycled promo. Just like the pipebomb promo against Cena before MITB was a patchwork recycle of the Carlito promo against Cena a couple years prior.

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.
Quoted for truth, couldn't say it better!

Anyways on topic, no one got owned. It was a good promo, CM Punk insulted Rock in his style and Rock did it in his. Punk is a serious guy who uses reality to insult his opponents and Rock is an entertainer who like to have fun with his opponent and both men did just that. Nothing more, nothing less.

I've said it in the Rock/Punk thread and i will say it again.. this was magical. Never expected such a quality promo this week. I expected a typical Rock return promo and Punk interfering and demanding respect and all and thought the storyline would pick up in the last week before RR.. but this was unexpectedly awesome.

Default Re: punk promo pre-rock entrance

I thought it was a very good promo. The only negative was the crowd didn't boo him. Punk was so desperate to get heat (which is why it dragged on a bit in the end) but for some reason the crowd didn't understand that they were actually allowed to boo. It was annoying when they actually popped for various things he said, but when he was actually insulting the crowd, they didn't react at all. So yeah, good promo, poor crowd. Thankfully though Rock at least got them chanting at Punk.

I guess on the otherhand it makes sense if punk was going for looking like a guy that is delusional, but the line would have been more epic coming from the goliath whose hubris brings him down rather than the David, like maybe if Andre the giant
Your taking the quote wayyyy too literal. It's not meant to be about size, it's meant to be about Punk's kayfabe title reign and immense talent in the ring and on the mic. Punk was basically saying he's the most complete wrestler Rock's ever fought.

Take a look at this dude right here everybody PRIME EXAMPLE OF A BLIND PUNK MARK.

Punk didn't own Rock at all no one owned anyone it was a simple Heel/Face interaction, both did great & sold the feud in one promo.

Also same routine?

You mean showing the same characteristics of why people love The Rock?

Doing the things that got him over in the first place?

Yeah because Punk doesn't talk up his BITW schtick or shoot style promos right?

Of course Rock is gonna do & say his thing because that's what made people fall in love with the character in the first place the same goes for Austin, Taker, HHH etc.

Exactly, I thought this was obvious. Punk has been a champion for 414 days, it would look stupid to book him as an underdog.

No he didn't.

Punk threatening The Rock is no better than The Rock's jokes. You and I both know CM Punk couldn't do shit to The Rock irl. So threatening him in no way is an "own". Not even in kayfabe since he got Rock Bottomed and rolled out of the ring in pain.

Secondly, "same old routine" is an ironic way to describe The Rock, since Punk's promo was recycled from one of his old ones in ROH. Rock does the same shit, but rehashing an old promo he used against someone else ISN'T?

The "God" line was also not "cool" at all, much less an own. Every other teen boy calls themselves God. Nobody still does that shit once they grow up. He sounded like he was some nerdy kid talking about his "godly" Call of Duty sniper skillz.
