Re: If The Rock has one last match, who should it be against?

Rock vs. Styles as this would be a fantastic match due to Styles in ring work and a fantastic build up due to Rock's electrifying greatness.

That is my number one by far.

Next, I guess Rock vs. Brock would be fine with me if they can work over 10 minutes.

Rock vs. HHH is meh, but OK if its the end for both.

Rock vs. Y2J isn't happening. If Rock comes back for one match, it'll have to be an incredible match and unfortunately, to the outside world, Y2J vs Rock doesn't have that going for it. At least with AJ Styles people consider him the best wrestler in the universe.

Currently, I follow Wrestling for:

Kevin Owens / Sami Zayn / AJ Styles / Shinsuke Nakamura / Bobby Roode / Finn Balor

Bayley (Favourite)/ Sasha Banks / Charlotte / Becky Lynch Asuka Carmella

HHH

The parallels here are just too strong to go any other route.

Both started with crappy gimmick

Both came into their own in a stable

Both became leader of said stable

Feuded with each other in what felt like a race to see who reached the main event first

Both reached the top. Although Rocks peak was certainly higher

Both went onto become something no one ever dreamed of. Rock became the biggest name in all of entertainment and HHH is set to inherit the company.

Fitting match to end both of these guys careers.

Re: If The Rock has one last match, who should it be against?

Brock's the obvious choice - few have said Roman which makes sense. Other ones would have Rock given the rub to a young star but no one has been built up enough to earn that shot except maybe AJ, Ambrose and Rollins but don't think any of those feuds would work.

I'll say Rock and Orton, both 3rd generation superstars and Rock could make a grand return and cut a spotlight hogging promo which incenses Orton to attack him. Bring the vicious Viper heel out and have him cut a promo about how he's sick of being in the background to the likes of Cena, HHH, Rock etc and deserves the spotlight and how he has never been appreciated by management or the fans. Have him go on about how he is the true greatest 3rd generation superstar and not The Rock, have him target Rock's family like Usos or Roman from behind until Rock returns to challenge him. Orton accepts and makes the stipulation that Rock has to retire if he loses then attacks him during a contract signing. The next few weeks have Rock and Orton one upping each other leading up to Mania and Rock puts over Orton. Then Rock cuts a goodbye promo on Raw, Orton comes out to gloat and gets a Rock Bottom for his troubles before Orton can continue to be used as the vicious heel to put over a younger baby face to legitimise them.

Rock vs Triple H is the only Haitch match I would really want to see now.

Other than Rock vs Austin, which has a 0% chance of happening, Rock vs Miz would be my personal choice.

Nobody outside the "WWE Universe" (around 3 million all told) gives a shit about the Rock wrestling anymore.
If people want to be entertained by The Rock, they won't tune in to a lame ass 3-hour show, much less will they wait months and pay 10 bucks to tune into a lame ass 5-hour show, they will just go out, connect with real life, and watch Baywatch.

FUCK NO

No to Rock/Lesnar, Rock/HHH, or Rock/Batista

They would ALL be fucking awful. No more part-timers taking up matches.

Nobody

The Rock is a shell of what he once was and now I found his promos to be cringe worthy. He's more Dwayne Johnson the actor now.
