AIM: # 1 Posted on 12.9.02 0400.38 Reposted on: 12.9.09 0402.53 Let's say that I am Joe Average WWE Fan Not Reading The Internet. "Hey, where is The Rock at?" Have they even bothered coming up with A Stupid Answer for this? Has there been a mention that I missed? Furthermore, is it intentional? Is Joe Average Fan supposedly tuning into Raw thinking Rock is gonna show back up anytime now, so they don't want to kill his hopes and dreams? Were whatever plans they had (if any) just so shaken up by the SS crowd reaction, they went with nothing, despite Rock saying they discussed backstage what to do if the crowd turned against him? I think most of us that follow things are fairly up to date on things, but it seems like this would be frustrating for other fans. Promote this thread!

You know the promo machine will be in full effect before his next movie comes out, though. Hey frosty; I'm pretty sure the Lakers have won the titles more than 3 times Edit: 14 titles.

They used to do this with Hogan all the time. Rock's movies actually make money, though.

Or did they completely drop the Rock off the radar? I didn't get to watch that week.

Funny this thread came up - I had the same thought yesterday. They could have at least done some horrendous beat-down on the guy to explain his absence. Oh wait - now that I think about it, Rock only sold the semi vs. ambulance episode for about two weeks. That kind of nullifies any "injury angle" that may put him out for months.

It's hard to get into the mindset, yet we know there's a segment of the viewers out there that *are* wondering what happened to Rocky. It's mighty lonely these days above the glass ceiling in the WWE.

It's happened so often at this point that they're probably used to it.

It's happened so often at this point that they're probably used to it. And really, it's a lot more convincing than the injury angle. Everyone *knows* he's filming movies. I would rather see that incorporated into his character than no-selling car crashes.
