What the title says.
And seeing as, Rock is easily one of the most talked about stars on this forum.

Go and check out Don Draper's favourite Austin incarnation too (as I got the idea of his thread of course).

Heel Rock, Corporate Rock.

His last year in WWE where he was in the The Scorpion King film and going to leave WWE to become an actor so was heel he was amazing. Rock's microphone skills and the way he worked up the crowd, even as face or heel was unbelievable. The Rock concert was fucking hilarious:

"The absolute best part about being here in Sacramento? In about an hour and a half The Rock gets to LEAVE Sacramento".

Hollywood Rock, though it was very short. I liked the music, his new tattoos, and the shaved head.

The two concerts he had were fun, and it was cool how he mocked the opponents - like when he wore Hogan's bandanna and Austin's vest.

2nd is the 1999-2001 face.

I'd rank it:

1) Hollywood Rock
2) 1999-2001 face
3) Corporate Rock
4) Nation of Domination
5) Rocky Maiva
6) 2001-2002 face (He was dull here, and fans started to boo him)

I'm pretty torn between the Corporate and Hollywood choices. Its hard to pick a winner when you have such classic moments as singing "smackdown hotel" during a match with Mankind, or the Rock-cam during his 2nd title match against Austin, compared to the epic stuff like his concerts in 2003.

On balance, I'm going to go with the Corporate Rock, because that run was what turned him into a superstar.
