– The new WWE Studios film Dead Man Down, featuring Intercontinental champion , has been declared “Rotten” by review aggregation site RottenTomatoes.com. With 36 critic reviews in, the movie currently has a score of 39/100. Their quick review reads:

“While the fine cast keeps Dead Man Down watchable throughout, the film is weighted down by absurd plot twists and a slack pace.”

    Who will Y2J wrestle at WM29 now!?

    • Lord Spliffmeister

      Its a saturday event.I’m not sure if he’ll b at Mania or Raw 4 that matter(I don’t think so).The card is already stacked as it is.There’s no need to include him on the card IMO.With names like Taker,Rock,HHH,Lesnar on the bill what’s the point.

      • Pozessed

        You make a very good point, I agree, having Undertaker and The Rock on one show will sell A LOT yet alone having Lesnar and HHH. I would like to see HHH face Lesnar in an extreme rules match too as it seems they are going to go ahead with it.

        • Lord Spliffmeister

          God I hope not! HHH vs Lesnar 2 is enough.If anything they should have waited till after Mania to start their feud in order to sell ER(Altho now the Rock is booked).Lesnar needs to be built up as an unstoppable force,the mans got a 2 yrs contract!! He needs to defeat Hunter at Mania (why does HHH need the win he’ll be gone after Mania) go for the title n have new cats challenge him for said title.That way while those new cats would lose,it would bring credit to that wrestler seeing him take on Lesnar.Prolly even catapult them even higher than they already r.Just my opinion of course.XD

    Someone has already stolen my name and trolled. BTW I love the Rock.

    • Smith

      It kinda just looks like you wanted attention. Pretty sure no one stole your name to troll. Nice try though.

      • THEREALIWCSUCKS

        Go look at the The Rock Agrees To Post-WM29 WWE Dates, Rumored Match For Extreme Rules & More article. Someone stole my name and said the rock sucked.

  • 7 year old boy

    No one complains when Jericho decides to skip one show, but if Rock even skips one show all hell is unleashed.

    • Don

      Or Brock, Or Undertaker, Or the Jobbers, or HHH. The Rock can’t catch a break.

      • IKeepsit100

        These people expect The Rock to be annoying as Cena,never giving other people a chance to shine or doing promos 24/7 until his shit gets corny then he starts substituting curse words with baby words.

      Aren’t you 8 years old yet???

      • 7 year old boy

        Man way too many people ask me that question LOL.

      Jericho didn’t walk in and get two WM main events and the title either…

      • wwetnadudez

        Well to be fair when he returned last year he almost won the RR, had the WWE championship match at WM but I do agree with you.

        • Smith

          A title match at Mania which he was used to put Punk more over in.

      • cappa37

        Jericho also doesn’t doesn’t sell millions of dollars in merchandise, get them new sponsorships (Fruity Pebbles, G.I. Joe Retaliation, Snitch, and so on), and spearhead the highest drawing WM of all time either… Settle down child.

          Well said, people need to stop riding Jerichos cock and hating Rock just because he is the most popular guy on the show still.

      • http://twitter.com/StrayZer0 Adam Michael

        Selective memory much? Didn’t he just walk back in last year and jump into a feud with Cm Punk and get a title shot at WrestleMania?

    • http://twitter.com/StrayXPunk Orestis

      Well the Rock is the wwe champion.And Jericho came back to help get over more ‘superstars’.I’ll take Jericho over the Rock or Brock anytime but its true the Rock and Brock can bring some really big views!!!!

    • Sisisi!

      I look at it differently, Jericho comes in and gives people boost, does matches on Raw, etc.. The Rock doesn’t, is it Rock’s fault? No. Rock gets too much shit in my opinion.

      • cappa37

        It’s true. honestly, when you look at it, Jericho is just a glorified jobber. Name the last big match he won… really… just try. He’s been jobbing left right and center to every single person WWE puts in the ring with him since he returned last year.

        • Smith

          He’s been used to put people over idiot. Punk, Ziggler. He’s helping the younger guys get over. That’s not jobbing.

          • cappa37

            That’s what a jobber is dumb ass! They are used to put talent over. What an idiot. stupid stupid stupid- Randy Orton voice

          • Jamba

            A jobber cannot put over people you moron. It’s like saying those skinny guys put Ryback over. Use your brain or just cease to exist and hopefully you don’t multiply.

          • cappa37

            stop it. just stop it u stupid stupid dumbass. Those guys WERE jobbers!! Their purpose was to get Ryback over. The only reason they were brought in was to get Ryback over. What an idiot you are. Look up the definition of a “jobber” before you write something idiotic like that again. stupid stupid stupid- Randy Orton voice

          • Jamba

            You obviously are an idiot. Where’s your brain? Oh, there’s none. Don’t bother replying. I won’t be reading your senseless comment from your non-existent brain.

      because y2j does more. At least he does house shows when he comes back. At least he has more matches and does not get tossed into the main event spot. y2j is a wrestler. rock is just a Hollywood clown who only comes back to promote movies. come on 7 year old boy you should know these things. .

      • dann

        i can’t remember a jerico’s title reign as a fan favourite.if he done like that,there is no need of john cena for wwe.he can draw more ratings than rock.

    • The Truth

      Well yeah, when you’re the WWE Champ, you damn well better make all the shows. People pay to see the champ and when the main attraction is missing from a show, there will be complaints.

    • http://twitter.com/Kennokevin Kevin Lazar

      Last I checked Jericho wasn’t champion?

    • Jordan

      Jericho also isn’t the champion. Champions should actually show up

  • Smith

    I just want to see who he faces at Mania. It’ll be a good match.

    shocking a wwe film gets abad review for a terrible story…i haven’t heard that one since their last movie, and the one before that, and the one before that, and before that….etc

    • MisterE

      I wouldn’t call it a wwe film persay..yeah they put a few dollars into it, but that film is obviously not a wwe film. Rotten Tomatoes is a joke as film reviewers. I guarantee that most people will enjoy this film (Dead Man Down)….’The Marine 3′ (which truly sucked) on the other hand was indeed a wwe film, the look, the action and actors of course, which by the way contained many of the same actors from a recent wwe film ‘The Day’.

  • MisterE

    check out the ‘IMDB’ reviews of Dead Man Down….I wouldn’t depend on Rotten Tomatoes reviews for a good source.

    • http://www.sescoops.com/ Mr 561

      RottenTomatoes is pretty accurate – it’s an aggregate of the top movie reviewers in the country

  • Kris Mystery

    If the Rock came back occasionally for a brief run for nostalgia purposes then i don’t think he would get as much grief as he is getting now. There is no way in hell he should have ever been strapped as champion. They know he is going to be constantly promoting one of the 300 movies he is making this year and will miss a fair amount of time. I mean come on..he misses some RAWs and every house show. It almost seems like he is using WWE for nothing more than a self promotion tool… but that’s not to say i wouldn’t do the same thing. But just because i would do it too doesn’t make it right for the fans.The fans at these house shows NEVER get to see the champ… I hardly think that’s fair.

  • Kris Mystery

    Evidently it’s not just Rotten Tomatoes that don’t like the film…….. “Be prepared for plenty of eye-rolling at the film’s preposterousness”… The Washington Post. “It is rare to see an otherwise decent film so brutally shoot itself in the foot in its final lap, but Dead Man Down completely blows all of its goodwill by virtue of its moronic conclusion.”…. Huffington Post. “Among “Dead Man Down’s” many dead ends, Victor sustains a near-fatal bullet wound that is never mentioned again (like his shattered passenger window, it evidently self-repairs overnight); Alphonse springs an elaborate trap only to discover nothing; and Armand Assante makes an inexplicable cameo as a syndicate capo. Meanwhile, Victor goes out of his way to return a Tupperware container provided by Beatrice’s mother (Isabelle Huppert). Evidently, sometimes continuity does matter.”….Variety.
