If you were a fan of Dusty, you would know the promo by heart and it would have only taken you a few seconds into the promo to know he was ripping it pretty bad. Plus, using his mother was still cringeworthy. She has cancer. Oh, she looks disappointed when he lost. Oh, she is elated when he uses THE DUSTY FINISH to win. Their cameras panned to his mom every time something happened. They used her for that reason. Why? I don't know, but it was awkward and I hated it.

And you're right, Rock316AE. It was old school. Dusty Rhodes old school
Paying tribute to a great performer he watched and loved as a kid. Yeah. It was perfectly fitting in the context of the program which is why he did it. Great promo and a way to give the crowd extra excitement before the match starts after the hour of the Rumble match, which it did. Rock did the pre-match promos before almost every match he had RAW, SD or PPV, this was no different.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Please. If Punk had done it, you would have ripped him to shit and insulted him. Rock does it, it is an incredible homage. Bullshit excuse for being cheap in a promo.

Plus, Rock needs to learn how to read a teleprompter a little better, not to mention try not to be out of breath before he even hits the ring.

Everyone copies parts of there gimmick from someone else, everyone. He pays homage and all you can do is bash the guy? Its obvious Rocky is there to boost ratings and draw big buyrates not have 5 star matches, hes fulfilled his end of the deal far past expectations. Punk is great in the ring but ratings dropped while he was holding the title for Rocky. Soon as he was champ Raw got the best ratings since Raw 1000. You come off like a blind hater which is amusing cuz nothing you say will change the fact that the show is all about him everytime he returns.

If GI JOE is sponsoring EC, then Rock needs to win the match. I mean he is fighting a guy with the Cobra symbol tattooed on his shoulder.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

CM Punk has pretty much 'badly' ripped of the respect gimmick from Bret Hart who turned heel and did the same gimmick after he started getting booed as a babyface in 1997.Did I bash Punk for it?So dare you shut your mouth about the Rock for ripping off Dusty Rhodes.

Brother relax its just typical bitterness over Rocks position. Peeps resent his stature in and outside of the WWE so they find petty things to hate on him about as if it will change anything. There seems to be far more Rocky haters now yet he still draws dem ratings and buyrates lol

Yeah, and like I said, others catch shit for it but Rock gets praised. It's bullshit.

You Rock marks are all the same, kissing each others asses. Most of you probably never watched the Rock before 2011, now go ask Rock316AE what to say next.
