- After his segment with CM Punk at last night’s SmackDown tapings, WWE Champion The Rock participated in an off-camera segment with Damien Sandow. Sandow interrupted The Rock talking about the city of Little Rock. Rock went around the ring and asked fans if they wanted to see Sandow get a Rock Bottom. Rock went back in to give Sandow a handshake but ended up hitting him with a Rock Bottom and a People’s Elbow.

- On a related note, fans in attendance last night noted that many people left after The Rock’s segment and didn’t stay for the Big Show vs. Chris Jericho main event.

- A WWE source notes that while many fans have complained at the idea of having John Cena vs. The Rock II at WrestleMania 29 this year and have suggested other opponents for Cena and Rock, no match is going to make the company more money and sell more pay-per-views than Rock-Cena II. Because of this, many people within WWE would be very surprised if Cena-Rock II didn’t happen this year.

    Rock is a Phony? Not doing it for the fans? Some of you folks on here are so blinded by hate that you make no sense with all the Anti-Rock talk. Rock does not need WWE period! WWE needs The Rock. Rock did not have to take time off of his real job, which he makes so much more than WWE can offer and also has more WORLDWIDE Fame than the WWE can offer, to entertain HIS fans and possibly jabronis like all the damn whiny, complaining IWC “wish they were” smarks out there. Listen to yourselves. Hate him for leaving…Hate him for coming back…Please explain how better WWE is with him gone and exactly WHO is so called “getting the spotlight taken” from their inevitable meteoric rises?? The WWE is just another flip the channel show when people like The Great One and/or Brock Lesnar aren’t there or even rumored to be there. Doesn’t that say enough about what’s wrong with the WWE product and NOT what’s wrong with The Rock being there? Without those guys, the product sucks and so do the fan boy “real wrestlers” who don’t get to shine. They don’t shine because they are boring not because The Rock or Lesnar takes their spotlights.

    We keep watching because we hope that one day wrestling will be awesome again

    People keep groping about rock takes up all the time away from other people then when he gives the time back u complain oh well he doesn’t wrestle. Give the guy a break. Once in a lifetime means once in a lifetime john cena shouldnt have won the royal rumble period what are u gonna call it twice upon a lifetime. The rocks brings the big bucks and people back to wrestling that long gave up on the pg era of things. Go watch the attitude era and maybe your opinions will change. Dnt just blindly talk like wrestling was so good without the rock.

    Guys, please just watch the product. If you don’t like it, change the channel. Yes everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But seriously, you are NOT a writer, you are NOT a decision maker in WWE. Sure they can do better, and somethings should change.But getting upset and riled up is going to solve nothing. If they have Rock/Cena II you WILL begrudgingly watch. Bottom line, if you don’t like it, change the channel. I say that with love

    Triple threat, ROCK v CENA v PUNK
    Simple wwe simple…

    This generation doesn’t have any concept of ‘substance’ which is why The Rock is so appealing to them. I would say that only Hulk Hogan has been more transparent than The Rock in terms of hiding his true agenda. The Rock feeds the flesh of the WWE Universe rather than the spirit.

    We already know that WWE management is beyond any logic or common sense. Simply put, WWE is using The Rock, and The Rock is using WWE. Neither entity is doing this for the fans. They are doing it for themselves.

    Quiet as it’s kept there have been some really great ‘wrestling’ matches as of late and yet WWE wants to focus on two guys whom never have been confused with being a technical wonder in the ring. It they were going to needlessly take the title off of CM Punk, they should have at least gave it to Jericho. At least he is wrestling a full schedule, he actually has relevant things to say on the microphone, and has put on some of the best matches of his career in the past two weeks on RAW.

    Jericho = 100%
    Rock = Phony

    the rock sucks and cena rock 2 how freaken stupid the rock needs to go away and never come back

    Ok I’m done with the Rock. Since he’s come back its been all about him, his movies, his family, these corny stories, sing alongs, and body building. It’s great that he shows up but damnit wrestle, defend the title, do a six man tag. Anyone can show up at the end of the the show and use 1999 catch phrases and poor promos. You gave the belt to a guy who 2 years ago didn’t want to be known as a wrestler now the people inspire him? I dont buy it. As far as Rock Cena II how can it make the most money if the fans dont want to see it? Once in a lifetime until they run out of ideas.
