In terms of wrestling believability yeah. how does punk dominate for most of the match and then rock out of no where does a spine buster and people's elbow to win? if it was cena and he did the 5 knuckle shuffle to beat punk i guarantee you would be complaining!

The difference is the People's Elbow is one of The Rock's finishers.

You all may make fun of people with "IT'S STILL REAL TO ME DAMN IT!" for the young kids or marks or whatever, but you guys are even worse than them. You have this deep-seeded legitimate rage for Cena and his fans to the point where you let it affect your day to day life.

Grow up. Seriously.

Punk took other finishing moves in the match as well. He was hit with the Rock Bottom and was put in the Sharpshooter too. Also Rock was put through a table and was pinned by Punk. Technically Punk beat Rock, it was only because Vince reversed the decision. I think that's something people on here seem to forget, is that Rock was pinned as well.

If your problem is with the fact that Punk lost to an elbow drop, well the People's Elbow is his finisher, it has always been his finisher and is usually ends matches with it.

He also went through a table & got Rock bottomed on the floor I'd say he was pretty beat up.
Well he didn't really go through a table it just collapsed with them on top of it. I know its one of Rock's finishers but its still just an elbow drop. It would be like Cena losing to Hogan's leg drop, yes its Hogan's finisher but its just a leg drop and those type of finishers don't look believable anymore. The Rock Bottom should have been what ended it. Everyone can say all they want that the peoples Elbow is one of his finishers but it still looks stupid that after holding the belt for over a year he gets pinned from an elbow drop.

If people dont care about him now, they never will. He's had his chance.
People do care, a good portion of the crowd did cheer for punk.

When have you ever seen Cena end a match with a Five Knuckle Shuffle? Come on now. The People's Elbow is Rock's finisher he's won many matches that way & beat some of the biggest names in history with that move & you're telling me CM Punk can't lose from The People's Elbow?

Some people have just run out of shit to complain about so now they're complaining about Punk losing to The People's Elbow.

Yeah okay the table collapsed on them but Punk still took some damage, right?

Also i don't really think there's anything unrealistic about losing to the leg drop a 6ft7 300 pound man dropping his leg across your neck is passable enough in wrestling.

There's no point in complaining what looks believable and what doesn't because it's ridiculous. The Rock uses the People's Elbow as a finisher and that's that, and he dosen't care about how believable it is either, Mick Foley has said how he gives the Rock slack about it as well. But Rock uses it anyway because it's over with the fans.

Also The Shield put Rock through a table, that's what he's referring too.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Kicking out of finishers is usually a face thing to do
Punk 2011 MITB was being booked as a face, not the cowardly heel he is now

The finish was a cowardly heel getting what he deserved

Honky Tonk Man held the IC title for 15 months and then lost it in a 2 minute squash to UW - was that a bad thing?

Re: Why the hell did WWE make CM Punk succumb to just a People's Elbow

he took 2 elbows and a rock bottom on the ringside mat... so I think it's a bit unfair to say he fell to just A people's elbow
