Rock had such a powerful promo he almost created a larger than lifeness that no current star could even come close to being believable in winning over in a match. List who you could book in a match against Rock that could carry the same level and pull off a believable win over him.

My List:
HHH
Undertaker
Kane
Cena
Batista (technically not current, but close enough)

meh, I think he's still a huge enough star from back in the day that him pulling off a win would be believable. It's way more than Miz, Ziggler, Punk, Swagger, etc... could even come close.

Punk can beat Rock credibilty wise, but it won't be clean.

Don't get me wrong, Punk is useful for what he does as a heel for current superstars. But dude can't even hardly get Cena off his shoulders for a go to sleep that looks halfway impactful.

I think that most upper-carders/main eventers could be seen as credible against the rock if the WWE were to play up the backstory that the Rock has been away from the ring for 7 years.That way, it would put into the fans minds that kayfabe-wise, the rock could have "rust" from being away for so long.

Thats probably because Cena wasn't selling/making the move work properly.

How does Cena being literally to big for that move to look good = him not doing it right?

Anyways, back on topic.

I'd maybe add Jericho on there, just becuase Jericho's been around the Rock era and carries himself such a huge following. But it would be a stretch at a clean contest.

Punks done it on bigger guys and it looked good.

Only two people from the new generation who could pull off a believable match with The Rock. John Cena and Batista. One of them is retired.

Add in the old generation, then we can insert Triple H and Undertaker too. But they're opponents he's feuded with before.

your kidding right?? lol :rolleyes:
No he is not kidding and so is 85% of the rest of the people on this forum will not be kidding when they say CM Punk is equal to The Rock.

Just like when people say Christian will be fighting for the World title at Mania, they are not kidding.

Just like they say Dolph Ziggler gets more heat then Vickie and has charisma, they are not kidding.

Anyone in the upper to high mid-card divisions could do it! Why? The Rock is good enough to sell it.

Remove Kane and add Edge.

Then that list is good.
