Re: punk promo pre-rock entrance

Lol at blind Punk marks.

Punk didn't own anyone, neither did The Rock. Both were equally good. I already find this feud more entertaining than Cena/Rock.

Perspective from being there live:


1) don't know how it came across on tv but Punks initial promo was very long and flat live. People were looking around wondering what the hell he was talking about. I think he was trying to work up the crowd but it wasn't working too well. People just wanted to hear The Rocks music hit.

2) there were no booes for the rock like some have suggested on these forums (don't understand where that came from)

3) rocks promo was not the greatest but it was still good. Even with it being mediocre, the rock still garnered real reaction out of the crowd (genuine laughter, genuine cheers). Some of the only genuine reactions of the night.

4) crowd loved the "boxing god" line as well as the "might not be god but I am the great one" part

5) crowd popped hard for the rock bottom. There were three of those btw.

4) the segment overall was good but the show sucked so bad all the way up to the title match that the crowd was literally in a daze leading up to the end. Unfortunate...

Re: punk promo pre-rock entrance

He can say them things because he's playing the delusional heel. Rock's the hero doing the right and Punk is delusional bad guy. That's why he can say them things.

I am sorry he just doesn't look intimidating enough to stand next to the Rock and there is no getting around that truth. Maybe, if he actually worked out and had flat abs I could see it but as he is now.....

: nope.

Not a very dramatic feud.

Re: "Understand that your arms are just to short to box with God"

Originally the title of a Broadway play in the 1970s. Maintained it's relevance later on by becoming a well-known line in multiple classic hip hop records. Brilliant line. The joke is on anyone who tries to shit on that line, one way or the other.

Re: "Understand that your arms are just to short to box with God"

I literally went "... Wow." when he said that, I loved that line so much, to be honest. My eyes went wide open and went near my TV screen before Rock started talking because I was semi-blown away when he said that. It was kinda've offensive, and that's one of the best parts about that line.

Re: punk promo pre-rock entrance

The Tyson Kidd/Little Jimmy sentence was not just the truth, it was a 100% fact.

Which is why many people, including me, think Rock vs Punk is a waste of one of The Rock's appearances.

If Rock wins, well that's what we expected. Cool, but why did we have to suffer through a 434 day reign for it? Even with the reign, Punk looks lame in contrast. If Punk wins, it's not believable at all (without help, which would be boring since his last 5-6 title defenses have been with help), and everyone will feel ripped off that the great Rock PPV was reduced to just being Punk's 20th title defense (however many it is).

Re: punk promo pre-rock entrance

Punk isn't deluded though, the complete opposite, his gimmick is pretty much being the guy who speaks the truth that others don't want to say. I think it would make more sense for him to just say that he is the guy that always finds a way to win, his 414 day reign proves that. You don't need to try and make him into some badass heel that he isn't and never has been. Not like it's a big deal or anything though, was just pointing that out since somebody else mentioned Punk not looking "dangerous" in this feud.


IT WAS JUST BANTER
