Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

I admit that it was so fucking stupid for Punk to put his delusional heel gimmick by saying he's the most dangerous man The Rocks ever faced. He should behave like all the other cowardly heels in the WWE and look like a geek IMO.

Speaking of which. When Rocks done with Punk and most likely Cena which will pop a buyrate so I cant wait for it. Who else does THE ROCK feud on the current roster. Sheamus? Randy Orton?

I think Punk will win, but then Rock will win at Elimination Chamber. I have no other comments.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

It's laughable that people have to resort to "ROCKY OWNED PUNK!" or "PUNK OWNED DWAYNE!" or some shit like that. They both complimented each other well and did a great job of making their feud very heated in just one night off of just one promo. It wasn't just Punk's delivery/content or Rock's delivery/intensity, it was BOTH. If you say Rock owned Punk, you clearly have a problem with Punk and/or you're just overly obsessed with Rock. If you say Punk owned Rock... well, just switch the names around in the last sentence. I do hope that those saying it are just trolling and don't truly believe that's what the product is about.

I personally feel Punk was better last night, not only because he was on his A-game and delivered in all aspects of promo work, but more the fact Rock for 75% of his promo was using lines as bad as the ones Cena use. Now of course, Rock delivers those type of lines a billion times better than Cena does, and he delivers them much better than Punk did back when Punk was a face, but it doesn't change the fact it irked me a bit and made me feel Rock wasn't on his A-game for the whole promo. With that said, Rock's intensity in those last couple of minutes leading up to the Rock-bottom was other-worldly, and I hope Rock brings that intensity in all and for all of his promos in the next few weeks leading up to the Rumble.

And don't misinterpret what I said above as me thinking Punk OWNED Rock. Owning can only be truly done if the material allows it, which didn't happen last night except arguably when Rock talked about Punk's failures as the top face (though I thought it was stupid to say the fans rejected Punk when Punk got the biggest pops night in night out when Rock, Taker, and the likes weren't there and he was still making the company money in merch). I just see it as Rock had a very good night. Punk had a great night. It's got nothing to do with "owning".

I'm watching you...

I didn't say it was stupid. I just said that I found it silly. His 'boxing with God' line would have been much more effective if he wasn't booked like a pussy and actually looks like he can back up what he says. You're an uber mark. You bought into it and probably thought it was the best thing ever said by any wrestler in the history of life. I didn't buy into it so it made me laugh and I found it funny. Deal with it.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

1 promo of Punk and Rock topples everything Cena did with Rock, it's insane. The Rock brought intensity with his usual jokes, which Punk matched instead of just laughing it off and having nothing to say like Cena. Should make for good TV these coming weeks. If Rocks going to be around, don't really know what's going to happen after this promo. They've said all they needed to. Wonder how long until 'The Shield' gets involved.

AW MAN, CHECK THIS OUT GUYS!

Some potential good news for WWE and USA Network's Raw TV ratings is the viewership trend during the BCS National Title game.

Due to the blow-out nature of college football's championship game, there was a drop-off from about a 20.0 rating at 9:30 p.m. EST to about a 15.0 rating at 10:00 p.m. EST, which is when the game officially became a blow-out at halftime. At 10:00 EST, WWE went right into their TV main event of C.M. Punk vs. Ryback in a TLC match for the WWE Title.

By the time halftime was over, the BCS game only returned to about a 16.0 rating before falling to about a 14.0 rating at the end of the 10:00 p.m. hour. As Raw was set to deliver the much-anticipated confrontation between C.M. Punk and The Rock, the BCS Title game rating fell to about a 13.0 rating.

The picture bodes well for the performance of WWE's third hour, which has struggled during the three-hour Raw era. WWE is currently on a 20-show streak where viewership has declined from the second to third hour. If the third hour holds up, the overall Raw TV rating should be perform better-than-expected prior to the game starting.

- The following are Key Points in the BCS TV Ratings, based on a timeline released by sports reporter Darren Rovell (@DarrenRovell)

- 8:25 p.m. EST: 14.0 rating for final pre-game activity
- 8:30 p.m. EST: 20.0 rating game-start
- 9:00 p.m. EST: 21.0 peak rating at start of Raw's second hour
- 9:30 p.m. EST: 20.0 rating
- 10:00 p.m. EST: 15.0 rating at start of Raw's third hour
- 10:30 p.m. EST: 16.0 rating post-Halftime
- 11:00 p.m. EST: 13.0 rating start of Raw over-run
- 11:30 p.m. EST: 12.0 rating for end-game

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Agreed w/Sandrone but the owning stuff. If someone's getting OWNT in a promo, it's because it's written to be that way unless the other guy is stumbling all over the mic or just goes speechless. It's not like every promo involves both guys breaking character yelling at each other.
