WOW! The Rock is going to rip him apart. Nice cut by Cena but he just opened up a can of worms he wants no part of. I'm inclined to believe he actually does believe a little bit of what he is saying there. That's why it comes across well. Still not a fan of the angle Cena always takes that "The Rock left or bailed on wrestling." Not sure if he came up with that or the guys behind the curtain want him to push that angle. It just doesn't make much sense to me. Paid millions of dollars to make movies or paid millions of dollars to grind your bones down night in and night out with a ridiculously draining travel schedule. Easy choice.
If Cena does beat The Rock at Wrestlemania I'll be extremely pissed, especially after The Rock carries Cena's rump around the ring being a far superior wrestler. People seem to forget too that Rocky got it as bad as Cena. He was on the end of numerous Rocky Sucks chants throughout his career.
An anonymous WWE wrestler text PWInsider.com true non-scripted thoughts on The Rock/John Cena feud under the condition of anonymity.
"[The Rock] comes in to use WWE to get back the audience he lost doing Disney movies, which is fine but he's been back over a year and name one person he helped make a bigger star since then? No one.
"He's here for himself, he keeps to himself, and he keeps someone who's actually touring here all year from making a bigger payday at the bigger shows. It's all about making this the "biggest" Mania of all time. OK, then what do we do the rest of the year? Who's been made? You think he took ANY blame for Survivor [Series] not drawing? Of course not, but how do you feud with a guy on the Titantron? Cena nailed the guy dead on tonight.
"Say anything about HHH, Taker, etc. still being in the top spot but if they were needed to work the road, they would and they would still work their rumps off as much as they needed to. Rock is out for Rock and the idea he's here to better anything but his own wallet is the biggest work of 2012."
ATL Souljah Boy wrote:^ I do think also that some of it is jealously. The Rock was part of one of the more golden eras of wrestling, he put in his work, it wasn't just handed to him on a silver platter. His father made sure of that. He never lost his audience, all you have to do is watch the fans reaction every time he steps into the ring or grabs the mic. Wasn't known as the most electrifying man in sports entertainment for nothing. It shouldn't be The Rock's job to make anyone better, it should be the wrestlers jobs to feed off of his greatness. The same way Stone Cold and the Rock fed off of each other all those years.
I'm not saying the Rock isn't there for himself. I know he isn't there to remain permanent and I know for a damn fact he doesn't want to shoulder the entire load of the company which is what he would be asked to do if he made a commitment to come back. I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure the Rock didn't come crawling back to the WWE, the WWE came to the Rock. If anything that should want to make everyone on the roster get better because it's basically saying this talent pool is so weak, we have to bring back a great from a past era just to garner enough interest because simply put this is not a golden era for wrestling. It's extremely weak. Hell if CM Punk never got the push he did the WWE would be lost.
The tone coming across is that some wrestlers feel like the Rock owes something to wrestling. He doesn't. He gave so much to the sport. He's one of the greats. He paved a nice little road along with some other former greats and these guys who have came along have done nothing but frig it up. Doesn't all fall on the wrestlers though, falls on the writers and the guys behind the scenes too. Also when they decided to PG wrestling down it was an awful mistake.
JBL Comments on The Rock's Backstage Heat and Chris Jericho Returning
Posted by Marc Middleton on 02/28/2012- Former WWE Champion JBL took to his Facebook page this morning and commented on recent reports about The Rock and Chris Jericho returning.
Heat on The Rock:
"I hear the resentment/jealousy of the Rock backstage and I quite frankly don't believe it. Four of the world's biggest superstars in Cena, Rock, Undertaker and Triple H will headline WM-this is huge for WWE and the business-guys should be dying to be on this card and my guess is they are. It's very simple to those who do have any problem with it, if there is anyone truly that does-replace them and there won't be a spot for them. Until then just say 'thanks!'"
"There is a reason why Jericho and others can always come back-they earned that right and they still draw. Shawn Michaels does as well. CM Punk and John Cena earned the right to be on top. If these guys ever quit drawing then they know it's time to hang it up-that hasn't happened yet, and I hope it won't. Piper and Diesel ares guys who still draw interest and create buzz. Shows how great these guys are that they still create interest-it's Darwinian, once they stop or are replaced then you won't see them anymore. Batista would draw if he decides to return."
- There was high praise for CM Punk and Chris Jericho after their segment on last night's RAW Supershow. Here are some comments:
Jim Ross: "It's going to be hard for anyone to follow the pure wrestling match that @CMPunk & @IAmJericho will have at WM28 Trust me on that"
Bret Hart: "That was probably the best promo I've seen in months & I'm not saying that bc of the shoutout. Punk & Jericho were on the top of their game"
Meanwhile, Chris Jericho commented:
"And THAT is how you prove a point.... @CMPunk #raw"
