Punk vs Rock promo: Who Won?

After MNR, the wrestling sites and fan pages on FaceBook went ape shit over their promos, which is understandable (I did too). The arguments poured in; who had a better promo? Of course the smarks, the IWC, chose Punk and AE/Rocky fans chose the Rock.

I've always been a big fan of the Rock, since '98 & '99, always stuck by his mic skills and thought he got the better of all his opponents.

But it's like I'm the only one who thinks he's lost his touch. When Rock faced Cena and made his appearances here and there, his promos were okay, nothing top notch and it had the usual Rock humor. Even with Cena, it looked like he struggled to find the lines to use, but nonetheless he pulled through and made it entertaining.

Monday night vs Punk, I felt he was completely out of touch. His humor was on the gay side and "cookie puss" is some made-up shit. I felt the Rock didn't say much.

Rock vs Punk promos are different from one another, Rock relies on the crowd, catch phrases, humor and made-up terms while Punk relies on truth and ether. If this was '99, Rock would've dropped a better promo and would've gone toe-to-toe w Punk better. I think the Promo Wars will all go to Punk, Punk was able to shit on the fans and the Rock and throw it back into his face in the end.

(People also talking about Punks legacy and that he doesn't have one dude to his wins not being clean as a champ)

I'm not a "smark", far from it but Punk won Monday night, Rock is still my dude but he doesn't have it anymore.

    Punk's promo was GOAT, Rock's promo was trash. I really don't even understand how it's an argument.

I’m the best thing going today, I’m the best guy you’ve ever stepped foot in the ring with and you need to understand. Congratulations, Rock, you’ve just graduated from the kiddy table but you just bit off more than you can chew. You’re playing little league with your little insults, and your rhymes and your “millions and millions” and your finally’s and I’m in the big leagues and I’m swinging swinging for the fence. You need to understand that your little jabs and your insults are all kiddy games. You can’t leave a mark on the champ’s face. Come Royal Rumble, understand when you step in the ring, your arms are just too short to box with God.”

    i thought the rock was really good, but punk was just better, rock was funny, punk was etherous, rock made u smile, punk made u feel him(n/h), u need etherous and feeling moreso in a main event battle, and u cant front like rocks serious portion of his promo didn't add to the segment as a whole and wasnt at least a little compelling, like i said, the cookie puss thing was the only part that soured it, much like fruity pebbles and other corny things during the cena confrontation

    Rock got it. Punk was boring as hell and just talking about bullshit. "I'm gonna kick your ass" says the druggie looking, skinny ass, can't win clean champion to The Rock who beat Austin, Taker, HHH, Cena, etc. all clean. Okay.

    Also that arms are too short to box with god was used terribly and out of place. Rock roasted him with the jokes and was even better when serious.

    All Punk basically said was "I'm gonna kick your ass" which is frankly unbelievable to the highest level.

    So you think because Rock is built more physically than Punk, Rock can take Punk? Size means nothing, look at Kimbo, big man who fights and was KO'd his first fight vs a pink haired smaller guy.

    Come on now.

    Rock said nothing in that promo, I didn't really smile, more so was like WTF?

    Punk didnt just say, "I'm gonna kick your ass", he said Rock is outdated and his little catch phrases mean nothing, that's throwing it back in your opponents face, a first for the Rock.

    and does clean wins really matter that much, im sure punk has some, and in a time where wwe has been throwin titles on niggas so much back and forth and left and right that a nigga like randy orton has had a main strap over twice as many times as the goat hbk, punk has had it over 400 days, that means more imo

    Punk won it because The Rock's jokes are corny. He's funny at times but he says elementary shit and the crowd laughs at it.

    Rock came through cool like he always does.
    Punk was just more aggressive.

    2 different styles some what like Jay(Takeover) & Nas(Ether)

    Rock wasn't as good as he usually is, but he still won by a long shot. Punk was trying to play the tough guy role and it wasn't believable since he doesn't win a lot of his matches fair and he was talking to someone that looks like he would snap him in 2 with the flex of a muscle.

    Also I thought Punk was atheist, so it didn't make sense for him to the include the "too short to box with God" shit.

    Punk is claiming he is god.

    If you ever saw his S.E.S shit, you can see he was Jesus/God in that as well, dude spit sermons.

    Strange to me that Cena and Punk promos be corny as shit for most of the year yet when they feud with the Rock they come back on point...

    Cena is corny 24/7, here and there he's good but overall shitty.

    Punk is always on point.

    The Rock brings it out of them and besides cm punk and Cena feel like WWE is now their territory and the rock is just visited, john cena said that to the rock and The rock was like "I'm not some God damn visitor I help built this damn house."
