Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Of course it had to come to this, but the altercation between the two isn't a case of who "owned" who, it wasn't a rap battle. The Rock's put-downs weren't funny, but CM Punk came off as the delusional heel, which was cool to see.

95% of his promo had nothing to do with Dwayne. The only things he said about Dwayne was that he's another failed hope to take the title off of him and that his stick was old. Hardly a burial.

For the record I agree with William Regal but:

CM Punk 1, The Rock 0 after verbal joust on WWE Raw

By Arda Ocal

9:31 a.m. EST, January 8, 2013

This one wasn't even close.

CM Punk delivered another "pipe bomb" in the final segment on Monday Night Raw -- another blend of honesty and little lines that put smiles on hardcore fans' faces. This one had a more heel-ish twist, as expected given CM Punk's character on TV for the past several months.


Then, after CM Punk got the crowd in a frenzy for several minutes, out came The Rock ... and again we saw that familiar Rock "Big Mac Formula" -- Catchphrase (bun), plot point (meat), joke (lettuce, big mac sauce). Is "formula" exclusive to "The Great One?"

No, but whenever I see Dwayne Johnson in a WWE ring, in front of a crowd that for the most part are there to see him, I expect more.

It might be hype, and it might be nostalgia, but it's been a long time since The Rock was ... well, "The Rock."

And it showed here. CM Punk came across as fresh and interesting, while The Rock was able to use the old hits, just like a successful music act, touring from city to city.


Maybe it's better this way -- after all, CM Punk is the one who will be here after WrestleMania season is over. He's the one who will still be in the trenches for WWE (sound familiar?). With more eyes watching because of The Rock's return, this is an opportunity for CM Punk to become even greater.

These were my same concerns when The Rock was feuding with John Cena (side note -- it's still odd to see John Cena give an overwhelmingly positive introduction to The Rock on Raw, despite the fact that their match at WrestleMania 28 meant everything to Cena and it was a must win). They will always be my concerns. But my concerns aren't necessarily shared with many in the WWE Universe, who are perfectly happy with what they get out of The Rock when he is seen. To each their own.

Oh lawd business has just picked up.

We gonna see something special here with this feud, I think we can all agree. Hopefully Rock fans can appreciate what Punk will bring to this AND Punk fans likewise with the Rock. But if Cena somehow wriggles his way into this with any Triple Threat bullshit at Mania then WWE can get fucked. This feud is too good for that prick, this is big boy shit

Ocal is just mad cause Dwayne is too busy to go on his crappy show and do an interview like Phil does.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

The fact they think Punk got the crowd in a frenzy just tells you everything about their credibility.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Punk did not have the crowd into a frenzy. Ask anyone who was there or actually had a TV. They hadn't a clue what he was going on about. Oh it's Arda. NM
