Re: Official The Rock vs. John Cena Thread: Greatness vs. Redemption, TWICE IN A LIFE
Sorry friends for posting about Rock/Cena promo,which took place 2 weeks ago.But in India it was just relayed half-an hour ago.
Here is my take about that promo:
1.Rock's Entrance & Crowd reaction:
Awesome,simply awesome.The fans at Buffalo were on their feet when the Great One entered the arena.And the guy couldn't speak for several moments,after entering the ring,as the crowd was so hot and the cheers were so prolonged and loud.DAT crowd reaction,NO ONE GETS IT Except Da G.O.A.T!.They were cheering him like he was the almighty GOD(not you Punk sorry).
Thunderous Rocky Rocky chants throughout his promo.There are some people here who keep on saying that at Mania it was Cena sucks>Rocky in terms of chants.But fans of Buffalo had other idea.When huge CENA SUCKS chants started,soon after plenty of people started chanting ROCKY ROCKY,rather than usual lets go Cena,Cena sucks thing.
The entire crowd reaction for The Rock proved why he's the ultimate SUPERSTAR in the history of professional wrestling.The same crowd which was so alive for him,was barely energetic at HHH's promo.
2.Rock & Cena's face to face promo:
Absolutely fantastic.Even though I would still boycott their match at Mania,yet the promo was simply superb.Both men were serious and played their part superbly.
Loved when Cena said,'you don't know what it is to fail,as you conquered the Attitude Era,conquered the Hollywood and came back to the WWE and once again conquered it'.How true!
However,Cena's explanation of how he understands failure looked extremely phoney(no disrespect to any Cena fan).But still,he was trying to sell how big the loss of last year was,so all good!
But anyway,it was the best promo Rock and Cena had delivered together till date.Dat dialogue,"John,you think you can beat me,I KNOW I can beat you.'Also that Lance Armstrong comment was great,Armstrong full of crap like Cena,lol.
Overall,enjoyed the segment,even much to the surprise of myself.Hope WWE keeps this momentum up.
PS: Once again sorry guys for posting about this 2 weeks old promo,just watched it now,and typed all this in the excitement of the moment.Cheers!
: The biggest star and draw of pro-wrestling industry EVER.
1. Holds the record of drawing most arenas with 10,000+ attendance on top in one calendar year. [Broke Hogan's(1986) and Austin's(1998) record in 1999 and set a record of headlining over 100 shows with 10,000 plus people in attendance in year 2000. A box-office drawing record that is unsurpassed till date.]
2. Holds the record of main-eventing almost 17 PPVs that have got over 500k buys
. Over 80% of the PPVs he main-evented drew over 400k buys
. As a PPV headliner no one is even close.
3. Drew the highest cable ratings during the AE(real quartely segments not over-run). Took ratings to heights never before seen in 2000.
4. Sold more merchandise than anyone active(Austin
) between mid 1999-2001.
