" @K9: Cena will never turn heel, WWE is way too concerned over merchandise sales. "
There is no way cena is going to recover from this promo by being his pg face self again. Either he will have to straight heel up or be a tweener at least. Plus, there is money to be made in  heel Cena vs. Orton.   If WWE tries to create a cena heel turn like what happened with NWO, it can be a financial success as well. NWO sold a lot of crap. "
They should've turned him heel back with the whole Nexus thing, that was a perfect opportunity. But if Rock has one final match at WM, and it's against Cena, Cena will get booed out of the building almost as bad as that time he went to that ECW PPV.

" @ajamafalous: What does mark mean, something to do with Twitter? "

Mark is a professional wrestling term for people who think wrestling is real.. When you mark out, you get a feeling, and you get excited, like you did when you were a kid and thought it was all completely legit.  
 
Just after RAW ended wweshop.com shut down due to traffic congestion with people trying to buy the new Rock shirt.

I wish he did this a couple years ago.  My interest in wrestling has dropped significantly over the last year or so.  I don't much care for pretty much all of the new guys that have been coming in, and almost all of the vets I liked have retired, quit, been injured, or just simply disappeared (or went to Smackdown).  That said, I might check out Raw next week.

It was funny though, before the show even started tonight I KNEW ti was the rock. It had to be given all the hints they were giving. But then they did that limo scene and showed the lady legs and I was like "WTF!? so no rock" then Rock came out and I was like "Oh WWE, you clever bastards"

Yup. It was a perfect opportunity. But now the way rock went in at cena, a heel turn seems inevitable. But we will wait, and see. Anything would be better than the current version of cena. I can't wait to see all those little kids' tears.

Whatever, it was hard to not freak about this. I get excited watching wrestling all the time. I freaked during the Jericho return a year or so ago and I freaked during this. Im a fan. You can still freak out and know that the thing is fake.

If Rock actually returns for 1 more run at WWE I could see them doing a big Cena vs Rock feud with Cena being the heel.

Honestly, when the show was almost over and they had the girl out in the ring from the chaperone, and were talking about Triple H, I thought it was going to be Triple H, then they showed the female legs, then I didn't know what to think, then they did that epic lights turning off thing with big noises, then I knew it was The Rock.

Well, it was a given when they started doing the blue electricity. I thought the female legs were stephanie mcmahon, but then I thought "why would they hype her so much?"

He's getting better. He used to just make stupid jokes. I laughed at one of the things Cena said today.

@CL60:

I like that he sometimes makes some kind of video game or nerd joke. I think they are funny. Anyway, can anyone else that watched the Randy Orton/Sheamus match before the rock came out agree with me when i say that the end of that match seemed a bit rushed. Like "Oh shit, we need to move onto to rocks 20 minutes of epicness, better RKO this fool fast and end it" ?

I marked during Jericho's return too. And Christian's, too a lesser extent.
 
 
Cena needs to go heel (though as far as I'm concerned, that's been like four years overdue). If they build him as a tweener like they did in 2004 during his run up at JBL's championship they can still keep the merch sales, DX-style. Anything's better than Cena as a face at this point, though.

Jerichos return would've been better without that stupid backstage thing.

Rock probably won't make another in-arena appearance again until Wrestlemania, then he'll do some random BS at Mania that will fail to live up to the expectations people have set, come out the next night on Raw, say goodbye and not be seen again for another couple of years.

He may show up on Smackdown too, it's the 600th episode, and that's the show he was on mostly.

Did anyone ctually think it was going to be the Undertaker? :p 
 
My cousin legitimately believed that it was going to be Sarah Palin or her daughter.  He's convinced that the WWE is a Republican-ran organization.  He went on a rant about he wouldn't watch the event if the drug out Palin, and I was just looking at him like he was crazy.

And when he squatted and took a Big Show sized shit on John Cena's PG rated face, I couldn't wipe the grin off my face. 
Heel or face, the man has the crowd in the palm of his hand the second he opens his mouth. 
Thank Gawd his kids have gotten older now so he doesn't want to make movies for them anymore, he looked in amazing shape and ready to go.

Wrestling really did pass me by i think. I just watched that video above and just..theres all those fully grown adults there..i do not get it.
 
It's bad acting, silly poses and "fights" that are determind before they even begin. I can't begin to understand the appeal. This is good news tho cause it hopefully means he'll stop making shitty movies.

The Rock returning suddenly isn't going to make the WWE non-PG.  Saying ass a couple of times doesn't mean he's going to change the entire attitude of the company.

Interesting. Going to have to start watching it again to see what they are going to do with him now. Assuming he is still up to his old skill I would like to see him and orton go at it in a match. Though this is the WWE we are talking about, I'm sure they will find a way to make him annoying and stupid in no time. More so then he used to be anyway.

My only question is whether what happened was wrestling got so desperate they had to bring their biggest name back, or if even the kids' movies dried up for the Rock.  I'm sure it's some combination, but which one is bigger.
