He has been 'buried' quite a bit. Almost everyone bar his diehard fans would say that he's tarnished his reputation as one of the all time greats by coming back recently and doing the worst work of his career.
So what you're saying is he's no longer an all time great?He has been 'buried' quite a bit. Almost everyone bar his diehard fans would say that he's tarnished his reputation as one of the all time greats by coming back recently and doing the worst work of his career.
I wouldn't go this far, but I'll say this, most people expected more out of him. He raised the bar so high in his prime that the fans couldn't accept anything less.He is, he just looked like (and was) a useless wanker in his recent run.
Austin was a shot to shit wrestler a decade ago, there is no way he would ever make a comeback, especially at this stage.The same people who criticize The Rock's work yearn for a watered down Pg version of Austin to return and feud with Punk and see him wrestle with fucked up knees at the age of 48
Exactly, but alot of people failed to realize that he was averaging 20pts per game, actually that's pretty damn good, but because he raised the bar so high in his prime, nobody accepeted anything less than a 30+pts per game.Watching the Rock in 2011-2013 was like watching Michael Jordon playing for the Wizards. It was kind of painful to watch an all time great not nearly at the level we were used to.
Wish I could rep you several times over for this.lol still making threads about a guy who hasn't wrestled since WrestleMania. You haters are obsessed with Dwayne. But let's entertain the premise.
Dwayne's job was not to revive his career, or come back and one up what he did in the past. His job was to come back, headline two WrestleMania's, and pass the torch to John Cena for whatever reason. Maybe it was Vince's idea, or what not. Who knows. Oh wait, I do know. It's because The Rock is the biggest draw in wrestling today. And it was accomplished. And it's over with. Move on, Punk fans.
If you thought The Rock was going to wrestle every week, and put everybody on the roster over. You aren't very smart. And if you complain about it, you are even dumber.
He did put over Punk on the mic when he praised his title reign and called him badass and dangerous. And he was even pinned by Punk twice. Once the match was restarted and the second time Punk pinned him when there were no referees. So it was protective booking. And what's the point in Punk losing the title reign at Elimination Chamber when the very next PPV was Mania? These historic title reigns should end by big names at big PPVs which was at the Royal Rumble by the Rock.My only beef with the feud with Punk, is that he didn't at LEAST put over Punk once. He could've got the title, but I at least would've liked to see Rock let Punk cleanly pin him, then the next PPV have Rock go after it, or something.
