I think it's what makes the dynamic between the Punk and Rock characters better. I also thought the Rock promo was fantastic because he came across as one of the heroes that Punk lives to thwart. Rock was super serious most of the way to build the title match and yeah, he threw in the lowest common denominator humor, but that's perfect for the whole ideology Punk has of being this "I hate everything mainstream" or gimmicks & company favorites over straight-forward wrestling talent. It's a feud you can look at and think, "Yeah, these guys wouldn't get along in any walk of life" and the rivalry is compelling to me because of that and because the delivery was on point from both. No, I personally didn't particularly laugh at the jokes, the crowd ate it up, but I was completely sold on the Royal Rumble match by both men.

Bruce Lee could kill the Big Show. He's a martial arts expert, no?

What is Punk? The Karate Kid? LOL.

Last years had some decent moments but last nights was ten times better than anything they did last year.

Anyway speaking of turning the crowd was it just the stream I watched it on or were there some audible boos after the Rock Bottom on Punk. I couldn't tell if it was or just shitty sound on the stream.
Last night was bland lol. Oh and rock never got booed last night. Punks pipe bomb was insanely dull. Anyone could have done it. Cena did it to punk in canada. Its not impressive.

The IWC gets so excited about shoots.
Punk did well last night. I actually enjoyed him.


But They couldve done alot better.

Even though I think Punk could do with some more muscle in his body, size is hardly a problem between him and The Rock. The difference is not that large in their height and that's the big difference maker when it comes "small man vs big man fights".

What? Comparing Punk to Bruce Lee is like comparing Cena to Wladimir Klitschko. It's stupid.

Some people just think it's laughable that Punk told Rock that he was his toughest opponent to date.
