Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

I dont see how anyone can say that 1 definitively owned the other. Punk was the heel so he was all intense and shit. The Rock was the face so he was hyping the crowd, made jokes. Punk's intensity impressed me but his content was stale IMO. Same old thing he does all the time. Pretends to be disgruntled, breaks kayfabe, blah blah. To me he seemed to talk about alot of things yet there was no link between them. He just came out and kept moving from talking point to talking point, yet none of those points really had anything to do with eachother. It was quite strange.

Rock was a bit stale with his jokes and all that pandering but i like the fact that he outlined why he came back and seemed hungry. I loved his " discount double check " after he RB'd Punk. Looks like a man on a mission. He really looks like he wants to be champion again after 10 years. He sold Punk well as a threat. Punks boxing line to me was funny. He in no way seems like he can beat The Rock kayfabe or not. So to me the line was stupid. It would be like Ziggler telling Stone Cold he was going to kick his ass. Say what? I also liked the fact that The Rock brought up that Punk has said he was going to change the E and be the voice of the voiceless and all the things that happened in the Summer of Punk, but it all ended without any resolution. That to me was the most impressive thing about the promo. Rarely does a face aside from Cena talk about a heel's failures on a personal level.It felt real. Punk said he was going to kick his ass but Rock really touched a personal nerve with that one and that is more impressive than a simple " im gonna kick your ass" line to me. That was cool. Cookie puss was stupid. I didnt know what it was. It does kind of look like Punk though lol. All in all Punk had some good moments and some bad, while the Rock did some silly jokes. I prefered the Rock but he wasnt spectacular. Both men were blehh IMO. But not too bad.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Just watched the promo this morning when I woke up and absolutely loved what The Rock did. Sure, he came out with some childish insults but that's part of his shtick and I've learned to accept it instead of crying about it every time. Other than that, I felt the passion in his words, the intensity and he also completely destroyed Punk when he said the fans rejected him.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

That segment was so much better than either man has been in such a long time. If Punk wasn't already cemented as a main-eventer that would be the promo that did it. Punk and Rock have a ton of chemistry. It goes to show just how good Punk's reign could've been, had the WWE handled it differently.

I totally agree with JR. Punk is the best heel in the business. Add to that The Rock's inert ability to play the babyface challenger role better than anybody. We've got something special on our hands. These two have great chemistry and if last night's promo is any indication, WWE could've finally found a feud worth building. It's been a long time since I've seen that kind of electricity. Rock/Cena didn't have it, neither did Rock/Miz, Punk/Jericho or any other combination of 2011/12 (with the exception of Punk/Cena MITB).

Punk had some awesome lines, Rock hit hard. Either way, Punk was standing toe-to-toe with one of the greatest mic workers of all time. I couldn't ask for much more, regardless of who "won".

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

best promo in a long, long time. Both men did what they had to do and did perfectly. Rocky was Rocky and Punk was Punk. Long may it continue. Not going to get started in one-upmanship, I'm just going to sit back and enjoy the next three weeks. Great start to what looks a fantastic feud.

I'm sorry but I just can't take that seriously, metaphorically or not.

The size comparison is just a joke.

It was a good promo from both but it will be interesting on how Punk handles himself in future promos.

He can't reuse the same stuff every time if he wants to be considered great.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

it was really good for a first promo, but both need fresh material, specially Punk. And please, give this feud a decent storyline. Yes shooting can be good once in a while, but as Rock/Cena showed, pointless cheap shooting doesn't work. You actually need a STORYLINE. Why was Punk/Cena MITB successful? Because of the whole storyline that Punk would leave with the title, Cena might get fired, etc. The shooting actually made sense. Now they just throw two guys together to shoot at each other, whatever happened to clever booking? WWE should realize that after a while repeating the same thing gets old, you need something fresh.

It was great for a first promo, i'm just hoping they don't repeat the same stuff the next two weeks. Shooting for the sake of shooting doesn't work. The way the built Rock vs Cena was, stupid childish shooting every week, and it made no sense. What they could have done, was actually give them a decent storyline, some backstory, and a goal. But unfortunately we only got any a bit of that in their last promo before WM.

Not Removing Until:

John Cena faces Undertaker at Wrestlemania [ ]

Sheamus and Cm Punk are the 2 World Champions [X] -Wrestlemania 28

John Morrison wins World Title [ ]

John Cena losses cleanly [X]- Wrestlemania 28 Rock Beats John Cena


John Cena turns heel [ ]

Shawn Michaels returns for One More Match[ ]

Daniel Bryan beats a Main Eventer cleanly [ ]
