Rock winning BY far. The way he won it was so lame.... We all knew when McMahon came out that he would win, and ending it on a peoples elbow?? LAME!

Top 10 all time favorites:

Stone Cold Steve Austin
The Undertaker
Shawn Michaels
Chris Jericho
Brock Lesnar
Kurt Angle
CM Punk
Kane (98-04)

Re: What pissed u off more, Cena winning Royal Rumble or Rock winning

The Rock winning the title was expected 6 months ago when he said he'd face the champ at Rumble.

Cena though...for fuck's sake, get lost! Rumble is suppose to be that one platform to launch the next superstar, sort of how the King of the Ring use to be. Catapulted HBK in 95, then Austin in 97, Rock in 00, Lesnar, Edge, Batista, ADR, list goes on.

But that's the fan in me. The business man tells me, Cena/Rock II with Cena winning is business.

All about the MON-NEH!

Re: What pissed u off more, Cena winning Royal Rumble or Rock winning

Impossible to choose, I hated both things with equal passion.

Cena winning the Rumble because the prick didn't need to, he'd find a way into the main event at Wrestlemania without it. So that was a fucking waste that could have been given to literally anyone else and it would have been more worthwhile.

And Rock winning the WWE Championship just because it was fucking stupid. Champion for over 400 days, beating regular full-time superstars constantly then some stupid relic barges in and just wins it.

And the worst part? Both of these bad decisions just because WWE wanted Rock vs Cena 2, which they can officially do anything with that story now and as long as it comes down to those two arseholes having a rematch of an already over-rated match that I didn't give a fuck about the first time and I guarantee I'll give even less of a shit this time. Adding the WWE Championship to the equation makes fuck all difference, since now I'm just pissed off that they took the title off CM Punk and gave away the Royal Rumble win just to make that bullshit happen.

Seriously, this Rumble can go fuck itself with a barbed wire baseball bat.

Added because I can't seem to stop ranting:

As soon as Ziggler got eliminated I knew I'd hate the ending of the Rumble. But of the people left, despite how much I want him to leave and never come back, I'd have preferred Ryback over Cena because at least we haven't seen Ryback in the main event of Wrestlemania what feels like literally every single fucking year.

And the absolute worst thing? Rock vs Cena 2, Cena is going to win. And boom! We have that uninteresting burial machine back as WWE Champion and any interest in the title scene will instantly be destroyed because it'll just turn into the revolving door of heels being fed to Cena again. Like it always fucking is when that arsehole's the champion.

I mean, I'm sorry WWE but at this point you honestly can't expect me to be invested in a Cena title reign again. Just from a basic story-telling perspective, he's held the fucking thing so many times that I refuse to believe he, as a character, really cares about it that much any more. Oh, I don't doubt you'll make an effort to convince us that the WWE Title is massively important to Cena but when he's held it 10 times before, it rings a bit hollow that he still treats it as some Holy Grail type deal.

And the Rock... the fucking Rock. I've kind of held back on this view since he showed up but now? Fuck it. I hate the fucking Rock! I do. He just pisses me off. He's not entertaining, and he's sure as fuck not as funny as WWE seems breathlessly obsessed with making me think he is. He sounds like if my friend's younger brother was suddenly aged into an adult but his sense of humour didn't grow up with him. Endless torrents of stupid bullshit and lame jokes that if he was on a comedy stage would make the audience throw things at him. "Cookiepuss", really? You're a grown man for fuck sake you stupid relic!

But now I'm in for at least 2 months of this prick cutting time-consuming promos every fucking week, opposite Cena no doubt, because we all know he's not losing that thing at Elimination Chamber.

At this point, I'm debating whether to just stop watching RAW until the Rock fucks off again, because I could barely get through his appearences lately without taking breaks in the middle of his promos because they just annoy me so damn much. But even if I do, when he leaves Cena will be champion and that'll be just as annoying.

I just... I hate this PPV, I really do. I hate it, I hate what it did and I hate the months of horrible aftermath it has now forced onto anyone who doesn't give a flying toss about seeing Cena and the Rock slinging playground-level insults at each other for a couple of months then having a thoroughly predictable match that WWE will obsess over telling us is th "great match ever, seriously you guys!"

Re: What pissed u off more, Cena winning Royal Rumble or Rock winning

I had no problem with either winning, i'd of much rather certain others win the rumble however. The problem with Rock winning was the manor in which he did. I was fine with booking the restart, but from here it was terrible. It needed near falls and finishers. People can complain about flase finishes and kicking of finishing moves but in a match of this magnitude it has to happen. Such a great title reign was ended with one peoples elbow, at least make it a rock bottom, preferably two or three. CM Punk in defeat would of come off much better, but came off looking weak as hell.

But as said I had no problem with Rocky winning, just a badly booked and rushed ending after the restart. And i'm in agreement with most others, fearful of Rock/Cena 2, do not want to see it one bit.

It was a metaphor to their whole feud, how punk would say the people don't matter and the Rock saying they do. I can't believe people couldn't pick that up.

But what annoyed me the most was how the elbow was performed at the wrong angle, it should have faced the camera.

Re: What pissed u off more, Cena winning Royal Rumble or Rock winning

I like the fact that everybody pretty much knew about them winning, yet was still excited for RR and had this huge expectations of having it their way. It's a business people. They want to make money. I'm not pissed about any of them winning. It does make sense. Stop letting Cena bother you, and Rock is just temporarily. Don't take it so seriously.

Re: What pissed u off more, Cena winning Royal Rumble or Rock winning

Anybody other than Cena winning the Rumble would have that wrestler in the mid-card match or opening match at Wrestlemania anyway. So they actually did you a favor with Cena winning last night. What you want some b.s storyline when they weasel Cena in somehow when they planned to have Cena wrestle the Rock again a long time ago?

I'm for as many people getting over as possible, it would improve the show and the more over people there are, the more avenues there are to push new talent, yes, your favourites are more likely to get pushed if there are more over people to feud with.

Re: What pissed u off more, Cena winning Royal Rumble or Rock winning

cena should not have won the rumble heck cena should just retire and get out of our lives he such a phony

rock - we all knew if the rock returned for the belt vince would give it to him/and he would only return if he won the belt
rock returning = PPV sales therefore vince wouldnt turn it down

we all knew as the rock announced he would wrestle in the rumble so i dont see why people are complaining only now and no one said much before hand

Re: What pissed u off more, Cena winning Royal Rumble or Rock winning

Neither of them pissed me off. I predicted Cena to win and Rock winning the gold wasn't that much of a stretch either.

Only true surprise of the night was Jericho returning and lasting over 47 minutes in the Rumble.

"They will LIE to you, she said. They will try to DENOUNCE you, she said. They will try to STEAL your gift, and she was right. Sister Abigail always spoke the truth, and so do I. So when I tell you that I knew this day would come, I am NOT telling you a lie! And on this day, in this moment in time right now, this very second, I can truly say that I have the whole damn world in my hands!"
