Finally The Rock...




It would seem as though my free time is about to get shorter. After years of completely ignoring the wrestling world, something, or rather someone made a triumphant return this past Monday night that warranted my attention. For those that are unaware, I spent countless hours of my childhood in front of the television set on Saturdays, watching World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and then moved to WWE’s Monday Night Raw during my adolescent years.

The product was decent but I tuned in every Monday night and even submitted some of my school work late because of two reasons:

Austin 3:16
Stone Cold Steve Austin went above the call of duty to keep fans entertained but also to piss off Vince McMahon. Between the beer chugging, the middle fingers, the WHAT chants, the fun he had at the expense of Vince and the Stunners he laid on his opponents, Austin was far too great to pass up.

The People’s Champ
Simply put, the Rock knew how to rock an area (no pun intended). Between the devastating Rock Bottom and the most electrifying move in sports entertainment (The People’s Elbow), few offered as much charisma in the ring as well as off it like the Rock did. Every single one of his matches always left me wanting more and yet he always delivered. The most impressive part of all of Rocky’s talents? His mic skills. This man probably would have given Katt Williams a good run for his money on Widin’ Out and might have even upstaged Wayne Brady on a few occasions on Who’s Line Is It Anyway.

That’s just how much power the man had with a microphone in his hand. And now, word on the street is that not only is the People’s Champ back, but he will also host Wrestlemania. In his extended monologue on Monday night (thanks to Kevin the Nets fan for hooking me up with the link), Rock mentioned that he had a score to settle with WWE star John Cena; in what could be a match of epic proportions as the millions (AND MILLIONS) of fans tune in to watch it unfold.

My one question: is the Rock really back? Or is this merely like Michael Jordan scrimmaging with the Bobcats to get a kick out of talking trash and spending time in the locker room again; only to fill a void that was missing and then will he be back in Hollywood to work on The Game Plan 2: Can The Rock Actually Cook?

Hopefully my questions will be answered soon, but it seems as though Vince McMahon has made the decision to monopolize my Monday nights….again.
