Any Rock fans cringe last night?

I am probably one of the biggest Rock fans on these boards but he has just been so watered down and embarrassing for most of his return.

I still look forward to his returns every now and then but it is really hard to get into him when he comes up with things like kung pow bitch and cookiepuss?

He is sadly just a shell of his former self now and is really ruining his legacy by doing such cheap and childish pander-to the crowd promos. The Rock of 1999 and 2003 would have come up with 1001 hilariously witty comebacks and shit all over Punks pipebomb (not to mention utterly destroy Cena last year) which IMO was the better part of that whole segment.

Re: Any Rock fans cringe last night?

I love the Rock but his promo's are often very cheesy and can be quite unwacthable. He's sticking to the same stuff that worked in 1999 and sure, it's what brought him to the dance but I get tired of hearing the same old stuff when the new jokes he makes are absolutely terrible...cookie puss

Well,he was a little bit better than he was during his feud with Cena.

Re: Any Rock fans cringe last night?

Yeah thong wearing Fatty was so much better. How about Popcorn fart. Whisker biscuit!

Man, Rock has ALWAYS been corny as a comedic face at times. Shit works, and people love it. You are just growing up and your taste has changed. It happens.

The majority of the fans want to see him act like that. Thats who The Rock is. They dont want him standing in the ring talking about Twitter all day, being exposed for some apparent wrist notes, stumbling over words, and drinking water. They want that ol corny bastard they grew up watching. And they got him. Add some seriousness to hype his opponent and build the match, throw in a Rock Bottom. Boom! Thought it was great and much better than Rock as of late.

The only thing he did wrong was not wearing the people sunglasses.

Good point but it was just something about the way he said these lines back in the day that made you chuckle no matter how silly they sounded. Perhaps his delivery has somewhat weakened.


The only redeeming thing about his promo last night was 20 hairs on your straight edge scrotum. That line had me in stitches.

Re: Any Rock fans cringe last night?

? I don't understand how old fans are disappointed that was your typical Rock promo, I enjoyed everything about it just like Spiderman he can say corny shit and still make it work xD.

I was only disappointed with the crowd or maybe it got audio problems because the reaction I hear was weak for someone like The Rock.

That whole promo is still laugh out loud hilarious 13 years later. Even to people who only first saw it on YT years later. I don't know what you're trying to point out here.
