That's what happens when you put two good wrestlers with talent in a feud. John Cena sucked and still sucks.

Nah. I'm a huge Rock fan (favorite ever) but his jokes these days are a bit shit. Remember Kung Pao Bitch? Cookie Puss? Really?

I know he always said immature things but they used to be funny.

In saying that, I enjoyed last nights promo. Just thought the cookie puss thing was crap.

was funny? He sucked during that time, Rock insults in 1999-2001 were kind of soft compare to 1998 and 2003, AND 2011-now.

Take a look closer guys.
LMAO you're good man. I thought you were serious for a second. Dude if you don't like the Rock (as a face considering he was a heel for most of 1998 and 2003 which by default gives him more leeway on the mic in terms of insults as i'm sure you know) you just don't like him.

I've always thought Austin was overrated: "Blah blah stomp mudhole walk it dry blah blah whoop asses gimme a hell yeah cause stone cold said so" <<<Stuck on mutha******** REPEAT since 1998 CORNY as hell, and only got WORSE with "WHAT?!" in 2001. But dudes a legend and his a great mic worker.


Saying the Rock's skills sucked between 1999 and 2001 is one of the most ridiculous things ive heard.

I wasn't arguing that point, though. I was replying to that poster who said we should go back to the Rock/Austin promos to see a "serious Rock promo." I said i wasn't personally impressed by the jokes myself but the points he hit to sell Royal Rumble and CM Punk as his opponent were spot on and damn serious.

Very interesting Hogan tweet. Didn't think he liked Punk, but I might be thinking of Angle.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

The Rock does, what The Rock does, I'm just over it because I'm older. I was never a big Rock mark but I'm sure I would have had a big chuckle at "cookie puss" if I was 15-16 years old (which I was in 1999-2000). Today, its a bit juvenile but its what you expect from a Rock promo.


I was actually interested in what crazy joke he was going to come up with. Crackhead Popeye & cookie puss aren't his best jabs but at least the popeye one is actually kinda close.


In any event, you don't expect legends to come back and NOT do their shtick....I would never say Flair shouldn't Wooo because people love it, hell I love it and that's what we want to see. People want him to do his thing, all he needs is a target.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Hogan had a few harsh words for Punk last year but it wasn't a big deal, just Hulkster replying to a question and defending his ego.

you can't deny Rock was intense during that promo, especially towards the end when shit was really going down

you could tell that both men shared A LOT of chemistry when they were in the ring together, something Rock/Cena lacked a lot


and speaking of selling the match, RR tickets as of last night are completely sold out , i'd say they sold it well
I think he was intense for parts of it, but sort of went off the rails on others. He'll get another shot though, it's not like this is going to be their last promo together.

And yes, they did have chemistry, and yes, they did sell the match in one promo far better than Cena/Rock managed to do in months worth of promos. That's what happens when you make the focus about two guys wanting to fight instead of who doesn't like who backstage and has to read a promo off his wrist and who doesn't.
