LISTEN UP! This is how it really is -- I was at SummerSlam last Sunday, and there's really a quite simple reason for the reaction of the crowd....logic -- Listen man, I don't get down on the Rock for going to film movies -- he can do whatever he wants with his life -- but the reason I hate that son of a bitch is because he comes back after Austin leaves and tells everyone who doesnt like it to get the F out? Like he's in any position to make such a comment? He says "THIS IS HOME"? Wow, for someone who's home is WWE, he sure leaves quite a bit. I know what you're saying, he's promoting, making money for the WWE, blah blah. Bullshit excuse. The reason we hate him for leaving is cause he claims to have his heart in the business and then flees a month later. Takes away from the validity of the statement a little bit, don't you think? We cheered Brock not because we give a shit about being cool, but because Rock disrespects wrestling, plain and simple. Brock is a no bullshit character, and NY has historically respected and cheered that. Rock is all fluff, and his act is REALLY getting old -- ADMIT IT. After the show went off the air, we booed him out of the arena, and rightfully so. Go make some movies, pansy. Someone on this board said we'd be lucky to have wrestling back after the way we treated the top star? Well maybe Vince will finally wake up and realize that NY respects our business and won't tolerate someone pretending to be the savior. I know Brock won't be leaving anytime soon, and that's what we deserve - great athletes who CHOOSE TO BE HERE.
Actually, Nick, I always thought that Edge would do better as a smartass (and I wouldn't necessarily call it a "Too Cool"-esque gimmick) than as a serious tough guy. Given the right material, the guy can be ABSOLUTE GOLD on the mic.
