Just watched Rock's promo again, money printing promo. The selling of the importance of the belt for him was important and he did it perfectly here, all that with incredible intensity to signify even more how much this title means to him and why it's going to be big when he wins it again at Royal Rumble. Then the selling of the beatdown, just masterful. Rock's selling, bumping and babyface in peril performance was always second to none. Problem right now is that Rock needs to get revenge beatdown on them, this is not a Ryback type character. I would say that on his first RAW as champion after the Rumble, he needs to get at least two-three Rock Bottoms on them. It was nice to see him interact with his cousin there. It was a very good angle to put the babyface in danger as a sympathetic figure fighting against all odds while also putting the stipulation on the match to make sure people know that they're not going to get another bullshit finish to the match this time.

The parking lot segments with the cops were great, classic comedy.

BTW, around SVS 2011 I wrote about how WWE are trying to sabotage Rock on purpose after I saw how they booked Cena to beat Miz and Truth on the same night that Rock agreed to work the tag match. Last night I actually thought that they're trying to do it again with the brutal promo Cena cut as the final segment people see before the PPV. They also didn't even tell the audience that Rock is going to be on RAW and SD this week. Terrible promotion from them.








GET READY...

There was a time in 2000-2002 that he would always say: "You can't stop, CAAAN'T STOP!...The Rock" Nice to see that they brought it back in the magazine.

That video package WWF did before the Hogan match is one of the best they have ever done. Always liked their style around that time more than the "emotional story" they're trying to do today, for wrestlers or the PPV main events.



Edit - I knew I remembered "can't stop the rock" from some game, FIFA 2000 or 2001. Nostalgic.

Before the Rumble, a jobber is found unconscious backstage, a spot is now available in the Rumble the Shield arrive from out of the crowd and start attacking Ryback, Lesnar comes in at 29 (he attacked the jobber) eliminates a few, then the lights go out, when they come back on Undertaker is standing in the middle of the ring behind Lesnar, they simultaneously eliminate each other, feud begins. Big Show is number 30 but Punk runs past him and reaches the ring first, taking his spot Blah blah blah Punk wins The Rumble.

Punk is then forced to defend his Rumble win at EC against 5 others because it's felt that he didn't win it fairly, he wins. Rock v Punk II at Mania

My thoughts were almost the same a rematch happening at Mania but not in the same exact storyline. This is what I was thinking:

Vince mentioned that if the Shield get involved, Punk will be stripped of the title. Well the shield do not get involved, Lesnar does and helps Punk secure the win.

The Rumble starts and Punk decides to stay around to do commentary. At entrant number 30, Rock's music hits and he makes his way down to the ring only to be beat down by The Shield. Security and agents finally come and escort Shield out the building. Rock is being helped to the back when he pushes the officials away and makes his way to the ring.

Wrestler after wrestler are being eliminated until it's down to Rock, Ziggler, Orton, & Cena. Then it's down to Cena and Rock when Lesnar once again comes back out and get's Rock's attention, ala what Rock did to Stone Cold when Vince won the Rumble. However, Rock ducks out of the way and tosses Cena instead, winning the Rumble and setting up the rematch at Mania. The show ends with Lesnar and Punk attempting to get in the ring but Cena comes in and the show ends with Punk brawling with Rock, Cena brawling with Brock.

The feud is bittersweet in the sense that I can't it enjoy too much because in the back of my head, I already know that Rock winning the title was a guarantee, whether or not it was at Rumble or EC. It cuts Punk's reign short of 500 days, and then Cena fights Rock in a main event that wastes everyone's time, Cena gets his win back which he doesn't need, and Punk gets an empty, unfullfiling, worthless feud with Undertaker in the middle of the show, so he gets denied the main event yet again, and as a result, between the two big rematches no one cares about and this, I'll be skipping WrestleMania for the first time in God knows how long. I'd be enjoying this program so much more if it wasn't leading to disaster.
Technically, Cena does need a win over the Rock. Rock got a win over Hogan to put over him as a legend and this is a 'pushing the torch' sort of win for Cena. And you really think Punk is going to be wasted after holding the title for over 400 days? Think of the positives my friend.

P.s. At least Wade didn't lose last night

Even though I'm a big Rock fan, I didn't think the in ring promo was anywhere near his usual high standard to be honest. It just felt off. The back stage segment didn't really do much for me either. That was probably down to the fact that the 3 cops looked awestruck and didn't know how to react.

The selling of the power bomb and subsequent bleeding, was a masterful display of selling though. Made the Shield look legit. Even though I didn't think his promos were anywhere near his best work, he really knows exactly what he is doing when it comes to flipping between the jokes and "serious mode".

Passing the torch? Do you even know who the fuck JOHN CENA is?

Cena has been given everything. EVERY. FUCKING. PUSH. IMAGINABLE. He is the WWE's version of Galactus, he devours EVERYTHING that gets in front of him.

There are NO positives. Punk is above wrestling Undertaker in the middle of the fucking show, he's the best performer in the company, by a landslide. He should be getting the main event that he earned. But he can't have it because they have to job the Rock to fucking Cena for no reason. Anything less than the main event of the show is a waste of his time. I'm not ordering this show to watch Punk 4'th from the top, 3'rd from the top or 2'nd from the top. He needs to MAIN EVENT WrestleMania. And contrary to what WWE says, wrestling Undertaker is NOT a main event. There aren't 10 main events per show like they promote, there's ONE, it' the last match. He needs to be the LAST MATCH, and he can't be the last match facing who he's facing with who his competition is, that being Cena, Rock, and probably even Brock Lesnar and Triple H. NO. BUYS.

Yeah, he did. He got laid out by Sheamus's kick. Whether or not it was official, Sheamus beat him and EVERYONE knows it. Who cares if the ref didn't count 3?

This is why WWE has no stars. This is why nobody gets over, because the second someone gets ANY momentum, they cut them back down and make them look like a geek.

Not Cena. He always looks great.


I'm hoping against hope that SOMEHOW WWE will let Punk win and go into WM as the defending champion. Could be against Taker, or Lesnar or really anyone. Will having Rock as WWE champion, a guy whose wrestled once in the last 8 years REALLY be good? Probably not. But WWE will probably go for the big Rock/Cena rematch over anything else.
