Best WWE Promos Part 4
Finally after a good while, I've decided to do part four of my series. In recent years, the art of the promo has lacked in the WWE. We have few wrestlers that can cut good/great promos week in and week out. The passion is gone, the delivery is gone, and most importantly, the connection with the fans is gone. These following promos however delivered on all three.
The Rock Returns After 7 Long Years
Finally after seven long years, The Rock returned to Monday Night Raw. We witnessed the biggest pop since his departure and the best crowd interaction also. The Rock returned because he wanted to electrify WWE fans like they've never been electrified in years. The Rock also threw some jabs at the current WWE Champion The Miz and current WWE poster boy, John Cena.
Classic "What" Promo by Stone Cold
Poor Stone Cold Steve Austin was in a dry county. No beer. Austin worked perfectly through the "what" chants. He managed to tell a story of hitting up the liquor store and what he planned to do to The Undertaker later on that night. Thank you very much for reading this slide, you son of a bitch.
Vince McMahon Lifts The Suspension of The Rock
On the July 23rd edition of Monday Night Raw, Vince McMahon lifted the suspension of The Rock. Steve Austin became a shell of his former beer drinking, ass kicking, take sh*t from no one, BMF self. Vince needed the old Austin to beat the Alliance. Instead Austin joined the Alliance and gave them the advantage. Vince pulled out plan B and lifted the suspension on The Rock. In perhaps his greatest promo, Mr. McMahon brought passion like no other. And by the fans going crazy from hearing The Rock's name, Vince made the right decision.
A Christmas Story by the Rock
The Rock was back in his hometown of Miami and since it was close to Christmas, he decided to tell a little Christmas story. The Rock was facing Chris Jericho for the Undisputed Championship later on that night. He was sure that the title would switch, as he would make Chris Jericho his punk as bitch.
JBL's Judgment day 2006 promo
At Judgment Day 2006, JBL faced Rey Mysterio for the World Heavyweight Championship. JBL let everyone know that Rey's Cinderella and feel good story of the year was coming to an end. JBL was a true American champion and he would once again be on top of the wrestling ladder.
Mr. Kennedy's First Promo as a Member of RAW
Mr. Kennedy did not like being drafted to Monday Night Raw. He really did not like the people in the audience because they did not respect talent. They had no respect for Mr. McMahon's untimely demise. Mr. Kennedy was the greatest thing to ever grace a WWE ring. He was a friend of Mr. McMahon. Kennedy even successfully owned the "what" chants. It's such a shame to see how bad Mr. Kennedy's WWE career turned out.
Taker's 1996 Buried Alive Promo
Before competing in the first ever buried alive match, The Undertaker cut one of his darkest promos on Mick Foley.
To Be the Man, You Gotta Beat the Man
In this classic promo, Ric Flair lets Ricky Steamboat know that to be the man, you gotta beat the man.
A Story About Steve Austin
Prior to his entry in the 2002 Royal Rumble match, Stone Cold Steve Austin told Michael Cole and the fans a little story. Stone Cold walked into a bar; drank some beer, and more beer, and more beer, until finally he decided to wear out the mechanical bull. A short while later after whipping everybody's ass, he was told by the bartender that Triple H was going to win the 2002 Royal Rumble.
Do Not Call Mick Foley a Whore
After being called a sellout and a whore, Foley took to the microphone to clear the air. People thought that Foley lost his love for ECW. Foley loved ECW but ECW didn't love him back. Foley went to the WWE and was given an opportunity.
