(Although I still feel guilty to this day about helping Jerry “the King” Lawler in running the Rock out of Memphis wrestling, I’m happy to see the kid’s done OK with his career.)

    Best Raw moment in years. I marked out big time for the Rock and his entire promo. While I don’t think there’s any way he’s back for good, I really want to believe his comments about being back permanently.

    I couldn’t disagree more… never really too big a fan of “The Rock” after his first year of being “The Rock”, but this has to be one of the most boring promos I’ve ever had the misfortune to sit thru… kind’a exciting when his music started, but went way downhill after that… he just wasn’t funny. He’s apparently way out of practice doing promos, but he relied so much on simple catchphrases during most of his career… I can’t believe they wasted almost 30 minutes of a 2 hour show with this!! Strictly dullsville!!

    You’re certainly entitled to your opinion, David; however, fans in attendance said the electricity in the building was amazing…almost as if the arena were shaking during the Rock’s entrance and promo. Personally, I thought Rock hadn’t missed a beat and was miles better than Cena’s promo to open the show. And yes, you do have to compare the two because Cena is the company’s biggest star, like it or not. For that reason, he and Rock are gonna have to make amends on the air or Rock will bury him alive, which isn’t good for the company long-term. Can’t imagine that this is a long-term deal with Rock, but I think it’s a much-needed breath of fresh air and makes you wonder what WWE could be if Johnson’s Hollywood career hadn’t taken off. If he can elevate a few folks along the way instead of burying everyone, I think it could really pay off at WrestleMania. And his appearance after such a long absence does indeed give the event a “special” feel-as does the now-rumored new main event.

    The Rock, rocked, plain and simple! I kind of really like the one kid in the audience who was chanting “Rocky” incorrectly, more than likely because he was too young to even remember the chants and catch phrases.
