Exactly. Looking at the promo again and I've read what you said about it, Rock really sold the match and Punk along with hyping the live audience like only he can. Incredible performance. Rock/Punk last night is what I wanted from this feud and I'm looking forward to what's in store next.

His only commitment is to the extra millions he is getting and rightfully so, absolutely nothing wrong with that .
Honestly after that depressing, dark, nihilistic promo that punk delivered I forgot that the rock was about to show up and that's not an insult to the rock I just haven't been impressed with a promo that much since heel mankind had cut a 9 minute promo talking about his kids and the pretty boys that get all the money in the wwe .

Arms too short to box with God. Badass line.

Punk's been really irritating me in recent weeks, to be honest, and i'm a massive mark. But then, i think that the repetition of the respec', respec', respec' crap was supposed to annoy and turn his fans against him.

But, tonight?

Shit.

Punk was on and seemed so intense. Rocky, good as ever, but feel like the ol' 'BITW' may just have edged this week out. Still, this is Rock's first promo in 6 months. He'll get back in the swing of it.

Also, how much bigger than Punk did Rock look? Jesus H. And he's lost some muscle since 'Mania.

First things first, I 100% commend Punk for NOT doing 2 things I was absolutely convinced he was going to do:

1) DUWAYNE
2) Laugh, smile and no sell everything like Cena

The simple fact that he didn't do these things gets him a massive from me. Thank the lord. Staying with point number 2, the very fact that he stood there and didn't smile like a fucking idiot automatically puts the whole thing over as something serious to him which is absolutely what needed to happen. Big kudos to him for that.

The most important thing about this promo and something that I'd like to flag up would be the intensity they brought to the table. That was great and made for compelling TV. However, the promo didn't blow my mind like it did for a lot of people here. Sure, it was intense, but some of the content on both sides was poor. There were a lot of things I found silly, mainly Punk calling himself dangerous and Rock's most dangerous opponent ever lulz. I just can't take him seriously when he says he's going to kick somebody's ass when he has been booked like shit and when he looks like a lanky teenager when standing next to a guy like Rock. I just can't. It makes me lol. Anyways, I could sit here and nitpick on them and ultimately ruin this for myself like most of the rest of you but I'm not going to do that. At the end of the day, I came out of this wanting to see more and wanting to see the match and that's their job done.

I was so excited about waking up this morning and watching RAW. I mean, I had to forward through a LOT of crap to get to the important stuff but it was definitely worth it.

The Rock DELIVERED and CM Punk DELIVERED in their exchange. Both men were absolutely fantastic and sold me and probably everyone else on buying the Royal Rumble. Now I'm just wondering what else they're going to do for three weeks?

The ONLY part I didn't like was Punk's promo before Rocky came out. It seemed to drag and the crowd wasn't responding to it at all. He was trying so hard for the heat but wasn't getting it. He rambled a bit and none of it was really relevant to The Rock and the feud. However, he had his game face on when The Rock came out and from there it was magic for this fan.

There was no "Dwayne" or "Phil" or "I'm here every week and you're never hear, you don't care about the fans blah blah" or any of that crap we had with Cena last year.

Punk is the long-reigning champion and he believes he's the best in the world. You can hear it in his voice; conviction and belief. On the other side of it, it was great to hear The Rock say he came back for three reasons - to entertain the fans, to stop Punk, and to win the title. In that one sentence, and with Punk holding it up after he said it and staring at it, the title became THE most important thing in the company again after playing second fiddle to Cena for a year. Phenomenal stuff, and it took all of ten seconds to elevate the belt again.

As for the idiotic people here ripping Rock's promo apart because of one or two corny lines....erm, have you guys just met The Rock for the first time or something? It's The Rock. He cuts an intense promo and throws in jokes here and there. Most work but one or two don't. The crowd eats it up every time, and the proof is in the pudding as he's a proven PPV draw in this dire climate. 99% of the fans pay to see The Rock do his thing. If he didn't do his thing, he wouldn't be The Rock. Simple as that.

And for those who say Rock's promo was crap because of one or two bad jokes...let's all go to page 3 of our hymn book and remember this nugget from the allegedly "legendary" Summer of Punk 2011:



From 5:40. Possibly the unfunniest thing I've ever seen, and absolutely cringe worthy. One could say it was....childish? No, surely not! CM Punk doesn't do childish! He does serious and intense! Nobody's perfect.

Just shows what simple things like selling can do for a feud.

LOL admiremyclone owns all with that video.
