So how come Rock, only 40 and never badly injured, can't do half as good?
This is my quandary.
As good as HHH-Taker was, they really didn't do much other than beating the crap out of each other with chairs, but with the streak on the line, nothing else matters in the eyes of fans. Taker actually was in a very bad shape the last time we saw him in the ring.
Rock as good as he is/was, he was never as good as Taker when it comes down to in-ring ability. Rock relied mostly on his athletic ability, and that fades with age.
BTW, Rock completly ruptured his achilles tendon(Which is a career ending injury) while shooting a movie, 7yrs ago.
