Yeah Rock was never made as powerful as Austin I still remember watching the likes of Backlash 2000,Judgement Day 2000 and even fully loaded 2000 not knowing if Rock was going to walk out with the title because of how drastic he was booked when it came to losing and winning matches.This is by far the most valid answer.
Honestly. I don’t see how ANYONE can sit here and say that John Cena era is better then The Rock’s unless you are a new fan from 2005 or a blind Rock hater which I do see several in this thread cause it’s the same ones who just bash The Rock cause they don’t find him entertaining. Now let’s put all favoritism and biasness aside for this.
When The Rock was on top, even though he was the biggest star in the company, the ENTIRE show didn’t evolve around him 99% of the time, it did not, he was the main story but there were other storylines that was going on other then him. There was other big angles that were going on that sometimes connected to The Rock’s. Also The Rock matches of outcome were very unpredictable whether he was going to win or lose compared to John Cena winning 99% of the time or always coming out on top (especially in 05-07).
You had John Cena just steam rolling through the entire roster where they had to get other stars from different shows just to feed this man with more wins. Do you not see the backlash of that from what happen that is still pretty much going on today? Yes the Cena hate did kind of quiet down a little from 05-07 but that’s not saying much is it? this man still gets mix reactions or heavily booed out of arenas.
That’s why I “LOL” at people who say The Rock was invincible just like other Top Face of the company cause he actually wasn’t it.
Between Hulk Hogan/Austin/Rock/Cena.
Who is easily the target of being the “jobber” of the bunch? Yes The Rock was by far.
Unless you are a Cena mark, blind Rock hater or a new fan, I don’t see how anyone can sit here and say the Cena era was just more enjoyable-especially between 05-07.
And I agree during 2000 that almost everyone was involved in a program but you have got be blind if you can't admit that the only intresting thing going on during 1998 was the main event scene that is unless you couldn't help yourself and enjoy watching Marc Mero VS Goldust every week.
