    Its all good he is already committed to so many more shows.

    I wonder why? Maybe they figured advertising so much would give away his title win. I’m willing to bet he’ll still be there somehow.

    • Bushwald Sexyface

      Or could be a conflict with a movie promotion date. Who knows.

        The Rock.

  • Guest

    Yeah! I’m so excited for the rock to do a promo via satellite.

      That joke is really old now man. Rock is booked for almost every RAW (and even some Smackdown tapings) over the next 2-3 months.

      • 7 year old boy

        Thank you and the “It’s Miz fault”. That has gone even more annoying.

        • morrisonfanone

          It was so funny there for a while. It made everything easier because, we could just blame Miz.

        It would be cool if he wrestled a match or two on Raw and Smackdown.

        • morrisonfanone

          He won’t. He doesn’t care about Raw or SD. He just cares about having highly promoted matches, just so he can not win the title and leave for 10 years… again.

      • Ziggler better than Cena

        So he shows up, says a few catch phrases, doesn’t wrestle, and we’re supposed to give a fuck? Look I watched the Rock debut, I watched him evolve into the Great one, and I’m still a fan. But he just waltzed into the main event of Rumble, didn’t earn his spot. All so they can book Cena vs Rock, once in a lifetime, part 2.

      • FuckWWE

        Fuck them, let these assholes talk. Rock doesn’t need this company, he’ll do fine without them. I’m wishing Rock would retire after Mania because of these ungrateful fans, the same ones who wished he’d come back. He’s putting in many dates as he can, and they still complain. Before he challenged for the title, it wasn’t even relevant. Rock is a main eventer, not a mid carder, he does not have to lower himself for these brainless idiots.

        • pwnez

          No sh*t the Rock doesn’t need this company; he’s doing just fine in hollywood. Not everyone wished for him to come back, that may be hard for you to believe but it’s true. When the hell was the last time the WWE title meant something before Punk’s title reign? It was bouncing from Miz to Cena to ADR…come on, that’s ridiculous. No part-timer should get rewarded with a title.

          • morrisonfanone

            Ryback included?

      • scarface

        bro joke’s apart…dont u think u try really very hard to be a rock dick??? seriously put your review in your fucking ass and cut the fucking crap nigga!!! whats your age 20,21??? i dont think soo …whenever i see your any msg u just defending rock why??? i tell u why …u just defending black skin man not the rock

    • Bushwald Sexyface

      It wouldn’t matter if he did it live, via satellite, or from Mars. People like you would still bitch and moan.

  • http://twitter.com/AJCampbellNYG Andrew Campbell

    Rock is already committed to more dates than I expected him to do this year, so him missing one week of television wouldn’t be too much of a big deal.

    Wrestling fans need to give him credit. With his busy schedule it isn’t easy to make the amount of appearances he’s doing, but yet he does it anyway.

    • Ziggler better than Cena

      We don’t have to give him any credit. He’s coming in for what, two months to end Punks 430+ day title reign? So he ends Punk’s record, holds it at EC, and loses it at WM to Cena in a rematch nobody wants.

      Rock is a legend, nobody’s going to discredit that. But he doesn’t deserve the WWE title. I don’t care if it makes him a 10 time champion, he worked what, one match in 2012?

      • pwnez

        Agreed, the Rock does not need the WWE title. No part-timer (including ‘Taker, Austin, Lesnar, HHH) should get a title reign.

        • Bushwald Sexyface

          Doesn’t need it. But he’s probably going to get it. The mistake WWE will make is having him drop it to Cena when they could solidify a younger guy by having him beat Rock for the title. Thats the part I don’t like. Cena damn sure doesn’t need it.

          • pwnez

            We don’t even need Rock vs Cena II, heh.

          • Bushwald Sexyface

            I guess some people disagree about Cena not needing the title. Unreal. And yeah, you’re right, we dont need a rematch between those 2 nor do we want one.

          • pwnez

            I don’t see Cena holding onto the title for very long. 3 months tops.

          • morrisonfanone

            And we don’t want it.

        • FuckWWE

          If the part timer is a better champion than the current champion then yes. Before Rock came for that title no one cared, no one.

          • pwnez

            They cared when Jericho went after it. They also cared when Bryan went after the title since he was way over. I don’t think fans gave a crap about Ryback going for the title.

          • morrisonfanone

            No, I don’t like Ryback. I don’t know why. I just don’t.

        • Mr Idol

          I concur although I wouldnt be surprised if HHH gave himself another title reign. That guy always wants to boost his ego.

          • Bushwald Sexyface

            Considering Hunter’s had like 5 matches in the past 3 years, I seriously doubt he wants anything to do with the title anymore.

      • Backstreet Bungalow

        Rock doesn’t need to to be champion but its for marketing and promotional purpose. Royal Rumble, EC, and Wrestlemania will get more buys and money with the way he’s booked. Punks title reign was cool but he ain’t putting #assesinseats and hasn’t had a legit win in how long.

        • pwnez

          Punk not having a legit win is WWE’s fault. Inserting Ryback into the title picture hurt both guys. They had Ryback lose 3 times and made Punk look weak.

        • morrisonfanone

          Neither has Ziggler. He hasn’t won a match by himself in how long?

      • morrisonfanone

        That’s my point. If someone’s going to end Punk’s streak, it shouldn’t be someone that’s coming in for a couple shows, then leaving again.

    The Rock in the EC would be awesome

    This will be the night Austin returns, no point in having Rock & stone cold in the same bldg on the same night. Stone Cold lives in Dallas & typically makes his returns in Dallas

  • Bangga Panggabean

    The Rock doesn’t need title run anymore,even i a m big fan of him,last time i saw he got title run and it end so bad against Brock Lesnar,they build feud so good but their match in SummerSlam? worst one i ever saw,only watched The Rock beat up so bad by Lesnar,not like when he lost from Stone Cold Steve Austin in RAW Steel Cage match before he did Scorpion King project
    But don’t blame him because he attend to RAW or Smackdown but he never do wrestling in regular show,he getting old and plus his movie requires him in good shape
