They might as well have just cut back to them at the desk looking right into the camera going "oh my god, isn't the Rock just, like, SO funny you guys? He's just amazing, isn't he? Oh how we've missed him."

Maybe nobody else put too much effort into hating that aspect of that promo, but it just bugged me. Whenever they did it I just wanted to reach through my screen and slap them. Maybe it's just because I don't find the Rock to be at all funny, I dunno. Just pissed me off.
nah i absolutely agree with you man. It's frustrating as hell and it totally deflates the intensity of the promo.

The size comparison is just a joke.

^ love it. it reminds me of the old 1997-1999 WCW PPV posters where you have the two main event guys looking in front in a fierce look (mostly Goldberg or Hogan or Sting)

finally no more smiling and goofballing

I don't like it when superstars are smiling and happy in the pictures, I agree with you. Unless it is part of there character of course, like Zack Ryder or Santino or something equally as goofy.

Why do we have del Rio smiling in his pictures, he's the heel? Why is Sheamus smiling when he's that supposedly bad ass Irishman etc. Fuck off. Love how intense Punk and Rock are being with this feud and I know it can only get better from here.

Lots of people arguing about the "winner" of that promo, the way I see it, the winners are us, we've got one of the best Heels in a while, taking on the returning Great One, for the title, best bit about it, so far, no "Dwayne's" and "Phil's"

Promo's like that aren't about winners, they're about selling the feud by making the 2 people look strong.

The thing is, the promo between Rock and Punk last night completely opened my eyes.

NO-ONE on the roster in the main event is on the same level as them, Punk is the only one on the same level as Rock and that's very, very bad. Considering in a previous era you have three or four people who could go head to head with him and not sound like an absolute GEEK the WWE is in a dire state. It confirmed what we've known for ages, people like Sheamus and Orton have absolutely no business in the main event, as main event talents you should be able to go head to head on the stick with other main event talents, especially as main event baby faces.

The main event needs to be rehashed completely, we need more people like Punk in it and less people like Sheamus, because that's the only way we're going to get interesting main event segments like the one we witnessed last night when people like Rock aren't around. Push the Sandow's and Ambrose's, sure they aren't on Rock level right now, but they CAN be.

That segment was well worth sitting through 3 hours of RAW.

But Dolph Ziggler isn't the WWE Champion so it would be out of place. CM Punk has been the Champion for over 400 fucking days in a time where that is unheard of. He is pretty much god status, it's a superb line and the best part about the promo last night.

Out of place? Not at all. Cookie Puss was out of place, so was Popeye, but I'm not going to bash The Rock about them because that is what he does, he talks the corny talk, but it works, the crowd ate it up, Punk worked with it and the promo was awesome.
