Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

So I don't know if this was already mentioned but did anyone notice the similarities to the rocks pre-match promo to Dusty Rhodes famous "HARD TIMES" promo?

I agree Rock's return has become such a negative thing.

And not A SINGLE FCK would've still been given like the last 14 months.

So glad Punk ain't the champ no more.

It's like a "coming out of prison" moment for the 'E.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Anyways people how would you rate this match?Stop being a mark and rate it on match quality,just don't say I'll give it one star because CM Punk lost or I'll give it 2/5 because Rock beat Punk with only 1 people's elbow and Rock bottom,Rock gave 2 people's elbow and a Rock bottom mind you.
I'll rate it as ***1/2

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Correct result to the match, but a shitty match overall, crowd was the only think that made it seem semi good. The Rock was gassed pretty quick though, which is probably what led to a lot of filler in the middle. The Rock is in great shape, but now has a bodybuilder physique, when in his prime he was lean as hell. I'm sure Punk goes on to challenge Taker now, unless he wants his rematch at Wrestlemania.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Really slow paced match. I was disappointed in the lack of quality ring work I saw out of that match, but as storytelling the finish was pretty well done, and I know that I was excited when Rock won. I just pray we get Rock/Cena/Punk. That match has the potential to be a classic, just like this one did, but alas Punk and Rock weren't very compatible. It seemed to have a lot of strikes and not a lot of either guys' actual moveset, and that was a real problem for me. Rock's pre-match promo was excellent.

Also, the Spanish Announce Table gets revenge! Ahaha that was hilarious (once I knew that neither guy had gotten hurt... really hate seeing people get hurt.)

Are you serious? You're serious aren't you. We're going back into prison... We're going back to Cena rambling about shit that nobody cares about every night to close the show, he's gonna win the title and the whole product WWE has built up to right now is going to die. There was a lot of hype and anticipation for this PPV, more then any I can think of recently, and by having it be such a buzzkill with terribly predictable endings, we are going back in time.

" I am the best WRESTLER in the world. I've been the best ever since day one when I walked into this company and I've been vilified and hated since that day because Paul Heyman saw something in me that nobody else wanted to admit. That's right I'm a Paul Heyman guy. You know who else was a Paul Heyman guy? Brock Lesnar. "

- 6/27/2011


434 days. The greatest reign in the history of professional wrestling. Nobody will forget it.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Match was even slower than I thought it would be. Obviously Rock isn't going to be able to run in circles for 40 minutes straight but there was a lot of down time. Punk carried the match very well and both guys looked good for most of it, despite how slow it was. I am confused by the finish...why have the shield interfere? Whats the point? Let Punk win, or have Rock win clean. Do what you're going to do. But don't build up "the shield cant interfere" only to then have them interfere anyway.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Waaaaah, I wanted a 500 day reign for my Punk.

Waaaaa, Punk doesn't get to go to 2 Mania's in a row as champ.

He ONLY held the title for 435 days, what an injustice!

Friggin crybaby nerds. Guy gets the longest reign since like the 1980's and you're still crying.
