Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Wow, that right there is why i love wrestling. Great chemistry between the 2, it's already a better feud than Cena and Rock. Marks arguing over who 'won' need to stfu, it's ridiculous and you're blinded by your fandom over whoever you prefer.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Rock was Rock He didn't get destroyed
Punk was very good as well he didn't get destroyed either

It was a good promo by both I don't think either did better than the other. I just think people are going for punk more because it seems like they gave him more freedom with his promo so people aren't used to him being that good.

The Rock didn't flinch and stood his ground and came back very well. It was just a good promo by both. But no one got the better of the other guy.

ALSO, for anyone that thinks Rock is all jokes and catchphrases, you guys should go look at some promos he had with SCSA before their Wrestlemania matches. He was almost always serious in some of those. Especially the one with JR. So there is no doubt Rocky doesn't have it in him to cut a serious bad ass promo with Punk.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Arguing aside, I have to say Rock/Punk compliment each other so well. The Rock is a larger-than-life character, doing his schtick and all, while Punk brings realism into it. The chemistry is amazing. That promo alone is better than anything Cena/Rock did imo. Everybody wins with this feud. It's one of those feud that just writes itself without being forced.

better than the best.

You don't even need to go back that far for proof. If someone didn't get it after last night's promo, they probably just don't like (and never will) the Rock's style of delivering promos or the content he presents with a mix of intensity, live crowd interaction, and jokes.

Actually there is no real reason for a feud between punk and rock, exepct the wwe title of course, but that's not enough to make it an intense feud. On the contrary, cena vs rock was intense because it was a clash of two different generations. and people really wanted to see that. The rock kicking Cena's ass was everyone's dream. Rock/punk is a classic feud however. Rock wants the wwe title and punk wants to keep it. nothing more. It can never be like rock/austin (the two biggest superstars of AE) or Rock/Cena (clash of generations)


WTF is this shit?

A mark for:

Daniel Bryan, Ambrose, Rollins, Brock Lesnar

All time faves:

Bret Hart, Austin, CM Punk

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

CM punk is better on the mic then The Rock
Rock spews out the same catchphrases every time blue moon we see him. Every speech CM Punk gives differs, he's way more creative and says a lot more interesting things. Rock just sucks up to the crowd like Cena.

Yea that's very true. All I'm saying is that he can cut a promo with no jokes at all if he really wanted to.

Also here is a for being from Chicago like me.


I would also like to add that Rock had some very physical matches when he was around. But it would have been too cheesy/out of the way for the Rock to mention that. He was around when chair shots to the head were an every night event. He went against Mick Foley in some crazy matches. And a table match with the Dudley Boys. There were way more but I wont sit here and name all of the Rocks dangerous matches. Although I do agree with what Punk said when it came to some champs having it easy in the past.

It's not that people don't get it. It's just that sometimes he can do with 3 less jokes. Some of them were a bit silly. I'm not one of those who's arguing about who won or whatever, but still some of you die-hard Rock fans need to get why some people might be put off by it, especially for this promo.

Have any of you dweebs on this site ever watched MMA? technique most times beats size and strength.
Seriously. And literally the only name that needs to be cited as an example is Randy Couture. Beating guys pounds and pounds bigger and inches taller plus years and years younger.

BUT ALL TEH MUSCLES MAKEZ IT UNBELIEVABLE~!

Whenever someone mentions size, all you really have to say is Bruce Lee. What a vanilla midget.
