C'mon, I can't be the only wrestling fan here who marked out like crazy. I'm a pretty jaded wrestling fan these days but I got goosebumps seeing the guy I watched as WWF Champion when I was 10 triumphantly return.
Also I'm not someone who particularly cares that WWE is rated PG (like the product was so great the last few years before the change) but it was nice to see Rock be himself and not a neutered or censored version.
I didn't see this live and just watched the video and while I thought it was a little entertaining, it just seemed to be a rehash of his past promos. I know that's what the fans wanted to hear but The Rock used to be cutting edge in his promos. There was nothing new in that promo. It was almost like he was following a checklist, "Finally, The Rock has come back..." check. "It doesn't matter what you think," check. Make fun of opponent, check. "Millions and millions," check. And then finish it off with the obligitory, "If you smell what The Rock is cooking."
