Make sense to me, but Rock should've atleast hit him with RB followed by the people's elbow.

They are saving the Rock Bottom for EC. Punk still hit the elbow and Vice, probably gonna get a near fall with the GTS at EC as well. They wanna save some for the rematch.

It was a good match, but Cena/Rock > this match.

So far it really isnt all that great of a feud, I expected a whole lot better promos from these two.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Punk has carried this feud promo wise. Hell, he carried it in the ring too. Rock is not in step like the old days. And using his moms cancer? That was pathetic. Rock completely no sold Punk in that promo. NO ONE thought Punk was gonna win after that promo. Rock removed all doubt, that was a bullshit move. If Punk or especially Cena had done it, they would be shit on. But no, Rock marks say its one of the best babyface promos ever. BS.

Who in their right mind said that? It was decent but it wasn't all that. Certainly not one of his best but I liked the inspiration in the message. He did seem pretty fired up! I didn't mind him mentioning his mother because that must have been very important to him with her, his daughter, and other family sitting at ringside. Just another aspect of the hero's story to tell. A lot a people don't like to hear those type of stories because to some it comes off as preachy but I can see a lot of people buying into it if not relating to it.


Much gratitude to

I think if you remove the finish from discussion, from a pure inring standpoint, Rock/Punk absolutely annihilated Cena/Rock, because Cena/Rock was as predictable as you could expect, and Punk/Rock was innovative and had a mixed crowd.

I always thought that I was the Samaritan in that story (Fisk)

What the hell does that mean? (Officer)

It means that I'm not the Samaritan. That I'm not the priest, or the Levite. That I am the ill intent... who set upon the traveler on a road that he should not have been on. (Fisk)

A few on here, a few on other forums. Not the majority opinion, but it was said. Mostly just marks who overexaggerate everything Rock does. But like I said, he made it painfully obvious if he was gonna win after that promo, it was a selfish move.

Agreed. When he mentioned his mom having cancer it reminded of the same type of pandering that Cena did in his feud with the Rock, but with his brother, to try and get full crowd support.

I'm willing to bet there was "CM Punk" chants early in the night before the ppv began, and Rock slipped that bit into his promo to try and avoid a mixed crowd in his match. The pandering line almost worked to, but it was still 60/40 most of the match until the end.
