Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

I would love Rock/HHH at Wrestlemania 29.
Bue yeah, I can't see Triple H wrestling in that hair.

Do people realise Punk has done a lot the ground work for Punk Vs The Rock?

Now I expect in the next few weeks and im unsure whether it has happened yet but people saying how The Rock returning has boosted ratings and boosted PPV buys. But while that is essentially true he couldn't have done it without CM Punk.

CM Punk has been putting in the hard ground work for months now, developing his character and doing the seemingly impossible turning heel.

CM Punk is naturally liked by a lot of crowds and so the last 6 months have been about getting as much heat and as much anger from the crowd as he can and why? SO fans are so frustrated and angered by his repetitive shtick that they want to see him lose the title so much. Turning him into a coward who manges to scrap through with a win no matter what the odds is just another way to wind up the crowd etc.

This in turn means when The Rock does turn up, more people tune in and buy the PPV because they want to see Punk lose and want to see The Rock get the better of him.

Whilst The Rock does pop ratings and PPVs buys he is only as good as his opponent.

Because if The Rock was feuding with pretty much anyone of 95% of the roster ratings and ppv buys wouldn't be anywhere near as high.

I agree with all of this. Repped. Punk has been fantastic throughout. Of course Rock's huge drawing power contributes too, but as far as the actual feud goes, Punk has brought it bigtime.

Re: Do people realise Punk has done all the ground work for Punk Vs The Rock?

I love Punk but it's not going to be because of him why the Rumble buyrate will be huge, it's all on Rock. It doesn't matter(yes, pun intended) who Rock faces, his sheer presence guarantees a huge buyrate.

With that being said, Punk has been performing fantastically for a long long time now.

I realise where they're going and that WWE will push Roman Reigns straight to the top. However for me, Dean Ambrose is by far the most talented in that group and I think eventually if they just give him the spotlight then he's going to shine. As soon as he touches a mic everyone else can just sit down as he's magic on it. So It remains to be seen, I think they're all talented but to me Dean was the star of that group. I think Roman looks like the star of that group but I don't think he's nearly as talented as Dean.

I think they've both been good. More punk, but rock has been good too. I've enjoyed this buildup I've had no problem with it.

Top 10 all time favorites:

Stone Cold Steve Austin
The Undertaker
Shawn Michaels
Chris Jericho
Brock Lesnar
Kurt Angle
HHH
Edge
CM Punk
Kane (98-04)

How did Punk do that? By killing the ratings for Raw? Ending Ryback's momentum? Masterminding the most lackluster heel turn in the history of Raw?

let just say they both do what they do perfectly - both different styles on the MIC but they've done a million miles better then the Cena/Rock shit.

Which rivalry had better promos? I don't know, I don't really care much for either.

Which rivalry was more interesting to watch on raw? Cena vs Rock x 100

Rock and Punk are desperately scrambling to get something going.

The Rock Vs Zack Ryder would not draw the same as The Rock Vs CM Punk

1. GTS to The Rock on RAW 1000 lacklustre?
2. One guy alone brings down the ratings?
3. Ryback has been squashing jobbers who where not on the the roster.

+ WWE is scripted and it isn't Punks choice who he faces.
More fool Vince for making CM Punk Vs Ryback by your logic.
+ You dont need to win a feud to get put over. The sheer fact that Rybacks first major feud was against the second most popular full time guy and the long term WWE champion is a massive rub.
