Former Creative Member Says WWE will Regret Rock Partnership, Ziggler Update

– Dolph Ziggler has been pulled from WWE’s weekend house shows due to the serious concussion he sustained this past Tuesday at the SmackDown tapings. He is currently undergoing medical evaluation to assess the concussion.

– Former WWE creative employee, Court Bauer, recently said in a podcast that he believes WWE will regret bringing in the Rock for his latest run with the company. He had the following to say:

“I think everyone’s going to look back and have a lot of regrets about this partnership. I don’t think John Cena is anymore over for quote unquote being endorsed by The Rock at all. I don’t think the creative and the booking was at any point really great with The Rock. From day one in 2011 to the last few weeks going into WrestleMania, there was no sparkling great moment ever.”

    Yea but there’s nobody else that would be convincing enough or have enough experience to handle Brock’s style. Maybe wade Barrett.

  • Jason Lentini

    Those guys are already over.

    “FORMER Creative Member.” ’nuff said.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    I think they can go with Sheamus, Orton or Punk and have Heyman choose sides.

  • How is any of that The Rock’s fault? At all. It isn’t. WWE’s booking has stunk bitter ass for several years (outside of a brief flash with the CM Punk deal in summer 2011). It’s not as if The Rock needed WWE to bring him back to (basically) main event three straight WMs. WWE wanted Rock to be there, paid the man to be there, because they seem to feel like that’s the only way they can make money off of the event these days, which is damn sad. WM20 ended with Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit hugging as the two world champions. Forgetting how Benoit died, that was a powerful moment, and really said something at the time. I honestly felt for a brief period like WWE was really moving in the right direction.

    Little did I know that the next several years held little else but Cena, Batista, HHH, Orton, HBK, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

    Its due to his limited dates. Thats all Brock. They cant really build anything up with him and at the same time build someone else up to go over unless they’d be a credible threat to Brock.

    Unfortunately there’s nobody that really has the “it” in terms of being a credible threat to Brock except established superstars and maybe Big E Langton.

    Other than that Ryback but he’s already been built up so unless they pull a face turn for Ryback after SummerSlam and after the HHH fued is over its gonna be Rocky as the next stop on the Brock express.

    Edit here its mainly Brock WWE is to blame for agreeing to so many limited dates.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    Well said and I very much agree. It sucks with Brock though bc he could get people over, but instead they keep doing this stupid Triple H story line.

    It was never about getting Cena over, it was about actually doing something big, and getting some extra buyrates.
    Do they also think that Lesnar was brought back to get anyone over as well?

    These guys are not about that. Its like making a movie and sticking a Tom Cruise or Bruce Willis in it as a cameo. They aint put in it to get anyone a bump up in their career, they are put in it to drag in a few extra ticket sales.

  • Don Kim

    He’s right.
    Although I dis enjoy his angle with Punk
