In a rebuttal to John Cena’s rap earlier in the program, The Rock performed his own “Rock Concert” to close out the show.
Despite a few lame jokes, I thought The Rock concert was much more successful than I had originally anticipated. The concert itself had a lot of clever lines and came across as an amusing segment.
However, the end of the concert was another story. The Rock and the crowd ended RAW with an original version of We Will Rock You by Queen. The words were played over the Titantron so the crowd could sing along. The Rock seemed to be laughing too much to even care what half of the lyrics were by the end.
First, we had the words written on The Rock’s wrist, and now, we have lyric sheets and words being posted on the Titantron. Doesn’t this just play right into Cena’s hands?
This concert was very similar to last week where The Rock gave “history lessons.” The first two lessons were funny, and the last one was terrible. This week, the concert was quite humorous, but the ending was fairly weak.
At the very least, I will say this is the best performance I have seen of The Rock since he came back a few weeks ago.
John Cena’s rap and The Rock’s concert were entertaining, but did they add anything to the feud?
My biggest problem is that there is no buildup to this match, only hyped up marketing and a bunch of juvenile insults being traded.
For a match that is supposed to be “the biggest in history,” I was just hoping for a more serious storyline.
What did you think of The Rock’s performance?
Let me know in the comment section and be sure to list the questions that came out of RAW for you. Also remember to follow me on Twitter @ClassicJoeyMac. Sometimes, I write funny things.
Keep it classic everyone!
