Re: Any Rock fans cringe last night?
I honestly don't know why they would. I don't mean to take anything away from The Rock, quite the opposite in fact, but his greatest strength on the mic was never the quality of what he said, but the sheer power with which he was able to influence the audience. What he says generally does work very well, but that's not the point, the point is how utterly intoxicating his charisma is. Last night he showed that at its best. With, by his standard, fairly average material, he still managed to capture the attention and interest of the audience and drive them to emphatic support. To me that's genuinely remarkable.
