Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread
It's weird waking up today knowing The Rock is WWE Champion again. What a moment it was.
I was at a house party watching it, and we were all just silent and disappointed when Punk got the win. We thought it was an utterly crap way to end the match, so we were so excited when Vince came out.
The crowd was interesting, because throughout the match it seemed 50/50 at certain points. However, once Vince came out and restarted things the crowd seemed 100% behind The Rock. After Rock said, "You don't take it from him...I do" it seemed to totally turn the crowd and it was electric to watch imo.
Like others said, its crazy that WWE tried so hard to make Rock & Cena 50/50 last year even thought Cena was booed heavily as a face but last night Punk was the heel and got lots of support. Vince needs to learn to stop trying to force the crowds to react the way he deems fit.
Anyways, great moment for me to see Rocky with the gold again. RAW tonight should be very interesting! Will we get a Rock/Cena face off? Perhaps a rematch with Punk? Who knows!
