Why would you think ever it had anything to do with ratings? It's about their match and Punk says that there's no way The Rock will beat him because he's out of his league.
Will you please explain that?
If you hadn't noticed the story is that one of them is the champion and the other the challenger, which means they are actually going to fight. And no, most of the IWC are actually secure enough in themselves to stand for their own opinions and don't base quality on whether something is liked by the masses. The same way everyone won't be saying that McDonald's makes the best quality burgers.
3.1 is far, far from what WWE did in the era where The Rock had his prime. No matter what he'd be showing that he's a has-been (while it in reality just means that wrestling isn't as popular anymore overall).
In 1997 RAW used to score ratings in 2's and when Rock was in his prime(1999-00)RAW scored ratings in 7's and 8's.Your argument doesn't stand strong.
And again, why would saying that the masses likes The Rock better change anyone's opinions? Are you that insecure yourself that you try to make your opinion legit by liking what everyone else likes and therefor think that other people do the same?
No,I just want the WWE to give Rock a fair chance.Last year in the Cena/Rock feud,Cena kept shooting on the Rock for turning his back on WWE and going to Hollywood.Rock just stood their still without saying anything.WWE severely limited him on the mic so that he had to make facebook video revealing why he left the WWE.
That's the true Attitude Era Rock not holding back.You can see that he is intense,doesn't use catchphrases and jokes and utterly destroys Cena's every argument.WWE didn't even air this on RAW because they know that it would hurt Cena's character.
That's what happening now,WWE makes Rock rely on his catchphrases and corny PG jokes(which he doesn't need)and a guy like Punk steps forward,says Rock's shtick is lameass,his jokes are corny,he is in kiddie league and calls himself God and the Rock doesn't even reply him.Its crystal clear they are holding him back again.
If not, why do you think that matters? And if you haven't noticed most people in the IWC likes The Rock. Even most of those that think it's corny to call someone "cookie puss" etc like The Rock overall. Just because you like someone doesn't mean that you have to think everything is great.
I am just saying that Rock deserves a fair chance to show his mic skills,show his critics that he can evolve his shtick and cut great promos without his catchphrases and jokes.
When did I say that Punk owned The Rock? Show me where I wrote that or admit that you are just making things up. I've said that both of them did great and showed that the way to make a feud work is to make sure both guys come off good.
Every Punk mark was saying Punk destroyed Rock on mic,I thought you might have said,if not then sorry about that.
