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.
Tons of peeps who arent really Punk fans who use to be Rock fans supported Punk winning cuz he was a full timer and felt it was wrong for a part timer to end his title run. Peeps on here brag about the crowd reaction like its the Rock at his peak or something. Hes still far more popular than everyone on the roster but lets not kid ourselves his popularity has fallen super duper since he left in 2004 and even more since his return to WWE.

I don't think it's fallen much if at all. The tv crowds don't give him the reactions he used to get because the crowds today suck, but at ppvs they come alive. But I wouldn't judge his popularity based on crowd reception. I would judge it based on merch sales, ratings, and buyrates, of which Rock is tops in every category. I think the crowd being mixed at RR had more to do with ppv crowds usually being full of diehard fans who absolutely adore Punk.

I think the rock character needs to be tweaked. It was fine for his return in 2011/2012, but it's already getting stale and I find myself rooting for punk.

The rock is my favorite wrestler ever. I rooted for him as a heel back in 03 when I was 12 lol. That's how much I liked him. I wasn't some smart fan or anything. I just loved the guy. He's been lame lately and I know he can do better. He's missing something

He's just another boy scout good guy. He's just dwayne johnson. He's not even the rock.

I agree with this and I think it makes for a better atmosphere that way. We want the crowds to come alive, get emotional, and invested in the outcome of the match. I want more of the same for Elimination Chamber in New Orleans.

They need to get better audio equipment so we can hear the crowd better. Multiple live fan reports stated that the crowd was never dead during Rock vs. Punk, yet on TV it was.


Also, I learned some time ago that Rock's pops suck sometimes, but I also noticed that even if the pop sucks people are still jumping out of their seats. The guy makes Smackdown! crowds come alive. That's impressive. It's like someone else said: It doesn't really matter if the Rock gets the bigger pop, he's still by far the most popular person in the company regardless of reaction.

Despite the Dusty finish, Punk still got to pin Rock and was declared the winner, even if it was only temporary. So he pinned Rock before Cena did.

Take that Cenation!!

I agree; but it will be hard to get a diehard crowd in New Orleans. They are not exactly known for being smarky and rowdy.

Compare this feud to the feuds of recent times, this is one of the best.
