Well he did it again.
Just like last year, the Rock has subjugated the WWE’s top feud to a series of lame rhymes and childish name-calling.

Is this what we as wrestling fans want in our top feuds?
There is plenty of space for comedy in wrestling but its best utilised in the mid-low card talents and not the main eventers.
It’s been proven time and time again that serious bloodfirsty feuds are what rile up fans and make for unforgettable encounters.

Someone should explain this to Rocky as, for all intensive purposes, he has lost the ability to get himself over with fans without spouting the exact same nonsense over and over again.

People have bashed Cena for doing the same thing; his consistency to be humble in defeat and bland ‘PG’ babyface promos have been a hot target for marks for years.
However, Cena managed to bring it back round when verbally joisting with eth Rock delivering arguably his best promos of all time. Cena made you feel as if this was the most important match in history whilst the Rock joked and sang songs having realised he’d used up all his catchphrases.

Whilst I could go on bashing the Rock, I will admit the elation he generates with fans does add amazing level of excitement to his matches and his win over Cena at last years Wrestlemania was a brilliant move that injected a fresh sense of unpredictability within the WWE.

But what Rock didn’t do (or rather couldn’t) was hang with Cena on the mic. Fast-forward one year and history appears to be repeating itself with CM Punk annihilating the Rock this past RAW following a surprisingly decent match with Ryback.

Punk went on to cut a scathing, volatile promo that cut deep with fans and wrestlers alike proving yet again why he is the best talker today and arguably the greatest heel in over a decade.

And how did the Rock respond?
Cookie-Puss…
Really?

Months of preparation. An unstoppable heel champion. One of the biggest babyfaces of all time. It’s a simple formula that has worked for decades just on a grander scale. But what do we get?
Cookie-Puss.

It’s Fruity Pebbles all over again.

With that said, I’m honestly stumped as to who will win at the Rumble and will no doubt be on the edge of my seat the entire match.
Lets just hope Rock doesn’t do too much to soil the match with more lackluster promos.

and yet fruity pebbles put john cena on the box and this is how the rocks been doin it for years and it has worked

Unfortunately the Rock is the best thing the WWE has going for it at the moment as there is no bloodthirsty feuds and hasn't been for a long time thanks to the PG era... They've turn Punk into a boring heel, wasted Kane's remasking, Taker isn't around and the talent on their roster that should be ge...

No Pumbaa, a boring heel would describe ADR. Punk is so far from being a boring heel I think you need to open your eyes and put on your glasses. Punk is probably one of the most hated heels in this era of professional wrestling. I refused to use the word modern era because that is what as Punk sa...

FUCKING LMAO!!!! @Adam Troy Brown

Ridiculous catchphrase number 1

"I'm the best wrestler in the world"

Ridiculous because the best wrestler wouldn't botch as much as Punk does nor would he be unable to carry a bigger opponent through a match...

Ridiculous catchphrase number 2

"pipebomb"

He's dropped one p...

Dont know about that. Rock is funny, Rock is cool - but he does not belong to where he is right now.

Im always curious if he has new ideas or at least delivers them in a new way, but it is just recycling. He is not too good in the ring, he is not too innovative and he is no regular. Its just that he...

@Brian...the same yahoos that laugh at Cena are also the same that get a kick out of Rock's as well. The kiddies and the humanoids as Bobby liked to call them. All the face marks. All the ones who can't stand the fact that someone like CM Punk...a better wrestler and promo shooter than both of th...

Let me just pick my ribs up off the floor...

Adam obviously wasn't watching when Stone Cold was a heel champion... Punk couldn't tie Austin's shoes....

I can't stand Cena, nor was I that much of a fan of the Rock during his early years, mainly because there were a lot better wrestlers and entertainers...

Punk is up there in the promo skills department right with Austin. Thing is is that they have different styles. Punk is all about straight shooting. As he called it Monday honest arrogance or truthful arrogance. And he is so eloquent and natural sounding and it doesn't sound as rehearsed as Rock...
