I wouldn't say he owned Rock on the mic but Punk was better tonight.

IMO,Rock should reinvent himself and stop sucking to the crowd.That's not what the Old Rock would do.

Always been 100% fact.

If guys like Tyson Kidd were given more of the spotlight and favourable booking, do you think pro wrestling in general would have reached the heights as it did during the Golden and Attitude Era? I don't think so.

There's a reason why people only stopped yawning at D Bryan's direction when he finally started making an effort to have a personality.

I'm with Rocky with his feud but I kind of agree.

Old school Rock would have owned this, Punk was there for the taking.

Punk was taking the kind of insults AE and 2003 Rock would've been too cool to even think of.

It was like Punk didn't jump at the right time or something. Probably just me.

Anyone else notice?


Yeah Punks jump was a bit off for the Rock Bottom and i think the camera was a bit too close thats why it didnt look as great.

As for the promo i loved it,although Punks promo when he has by himself did drag a bit and it showed even if the content itself wasnt true(for ''smarks'') thats the type of promo style that got him over and he had a great delivery tonight but when the GOATs music hit you could tell what the audience paid to see,people were waiting and begging to give that massive pop Rock got,to see him and to repeat everything he said on cue,Rock talked and when straight to the point nailing in the butt quick and fast everything Punk said,from Punk giving his back on the fans to how he couldnt run with the ball the WWE gave him,its really funny that people missed all of this cause he was very straight forward the delivery was perfect from both of them Rock actually listening to everything Rock said and Rock doing the same and also putting Punk over as treat to him the great thing about this is that Punk hasnt got a clean win since he turned heel and even a couple of minutes before the promo he was helped by 3 men to beat a guy who is a ''newcomer'' in the WWE roster and yet it actually worked so props for them,Punk made a couple of remarks about wanting to kick the Rocks ass and the he gave no fucks if he was 1 day or a month in the company he was going to do it selling the feud and pointing what we want to see A FUCKING GREAT MATCH FOR THE BELT;
I'll give Punk props tonight the he did a lot better than i expected,The GOAT was perfect great pop a couple of jokes that the people ate,rocky chants great mic work just by standing there you could feel how he elevated the segment by presence alone and as for working the crowd this men is beyond anyone in the business untouchable in a level of his own THE GOAT im so happy cause i really wanted this to work and by the looks of it its going to,Rock looks lean as ever and im sure both man are gonna put a classic in 20 days,I'm sold im buying the Rumble cant wait to see it.

Also FINALLY THE GREAT ONE RETURNS TO SMACKDOWN first time im looking forward to Smackdown in a looooooooong ass time

This.

Also,i think that i saw The Rock a little bit tired,and the promo that he cut it was not one of his best...
That's a thought.

Oh, and maybe it's all about for Rock to put over cm punk and make him a bigger threat for this feud.

As a Punk fan I hope he enters Wrestlemania 29 as the WWE Champion but realise the chances aren't big.
Either way it was a fun ride watching Punk as champion and maybe it's time for others to get to hold the title. I also hope they don't make him look weak in one of the biggest matches of his career.

I thought the best line by the Rock was his three reasons for being back:
Entertain the fans.
Stop CM Punk.
Win the WWE Title.

A nice concise mission statement.

The idea that you have to be about either 'entertainment' or 'sports' is false. You can be a sports entertainer and I got no issue with it. Punk's message fails because he refuses to understand the happy medium.

The only miscue I felt in the promo is they buried the lead, Punk attacking Rock on Raw 1000, though they did touch on it a bit near the end.

What? The Rock basically got popular because of it.


Pretty awesome promo at the end to close the show. Loved it, so far this feud is good. However I thought Punk was kinda held back on the mic once the rock came out, and probably was told to get as much heat as possible before by using Flair, Shawn and Edge's legitimate retirement deal, which normally WWE wouldn't do. It seemed like they were a bit scared that the people would boo the rock since he's getting a title shot directly despite being a part-timer, and wanted to make sure Punk had no support. That explains the long ass rant from Punk before the confrontation. Pretty smart and it worked.
