It's been so long since I've gotten goosebumps from watching wrestling, hope the 1000th episode doesn't disappoint.

The 1000th episode will be great but I feel like the week after is going to be such a freaking let down because they will have no game plan on how to pipe it up. Too much crap on Mondays Raw. There are 9 different main eventesque story lines. I get that is there 1000th episode but even Vince Russo wouldnt overbook a show this hard

The Rock has done virtually no movie promotions in WWE. Also, The Rock was the 4th highest grossing actor in the last calendar year, he does not need to promote a movie in WWE. The Rock is doing just fine, jack.

People still don't realize that The Rock isn't an employee of the WWE.

How come no one gets upset when Taker comes back, or Triple H or Austin?

We get that hes not employed but what pisses off most people is he comes back acts like he wants to come back when in reality he just wants to promote his movie and then leave again, Taker has been fighting for the past 10-15 years I think not sure he's going to retire, and Triple H comes back monthly and Austin doesn't come back to promote movies and leaves for 7-8 years like The Rock..

well to be fair, taker triple h and austin, the fans know what they're going to get. we already know that we see taker in 1 match a year. then makes a small appearance(s) for mania hype. triple h is the next guy to take over that company, we get it. austin, also we see about once a year and raises some hell. we've come to see the rock back once a year, say some familiar catch phrases, fruity pebbles and boots to asses. i'm still a huge fan of the rock. but some people just get tired of "finally the rock has come back, home." and just playing with the fans and saying what they want to hear. it gets stale

The Rock never, and the Rock means never, said he was going to be on Raw every week. Anyone that thought The Rock meant he was coming back full time needs their head examined.

No offence "Rocky" but I would rather have you just make quality movies instead of coming back and leaving again and again and again, there's no point in doing that. The WWE cannot rely on comebacks from you to carry the show, they need to utilize the talent they have now, and give some mic time to the mid card, something that has never been done in the PG era I think.

That has far less to do with The Rock, and more with how much attention they pay to guys like Cena, Sheamus, and The Big Show. All we get every week are drawn out segments that fail to build any momentum or tension.

But yeah, I completely agree that they need to give their talent a chance. There's a problem when the company don't have a faith in anybody to step. It's too bad, because they have a lot of talent sitting in wait, who they are failing out and burying before they can even show what they can do.

Exactly, hopefully this 1 hour slot doesn't go to waste by giving it away to the Divas division or something. They should really give that extra time to the mid carders for mic time, show their personality, instead of just having Kofi Kingston come out to a bunch of screaming kids every week and winning a match. The tag division better be legit because if it is not, then the 3 hours are going to be very tough to fill.

Just think about this everyone, for the 1000th RAW, this is time right here:

DX Reunion = 20-30 minutes (My guess is Brock Lesnar crashes it)
The Rock = 20-30 minutes
WWE Title Match = 20-30 minutes
Daniel Bryan/AJ Wedding = 20-30 minutes

That leaves about 1 hour for everyone else, I do not know how they are going to fill in 3 hours every single week without returns, it seems impossible.

The Rock just headlined the most financially successful WM ever. Try telling the shareholders that WWE is better off without me.

I don't know much about the WWE, but the big guys are generic and are boring as hell. Batista at least looked intense, same with Goldberg. But guys like Shamus, Big Show, Henry, Cena are just boring.

Used to like Cody Rhodes mask thing, but then he disappeared from the face of the earth. Didn't like Dolph Ziggler, before but he's looking real good. Push him to the top. Guys like Bryan, Punk, Ziggler, Rhodes will make things entertaining. Have them all equal, and add a few more guys in the mix and they'll be good. Jericho came back, and has done nothing.

Can't blame the Rock, the guy has been pushed himself into larger than life. The guy is bigger than the WWE. Same with Lesnar.

The Rock is set to headline 3 straight Wrestlemania's, I'd say he never left. The Rock never said he was coming back full time. All the people complaining about The Rock must be kids who didn't see me turn into one of the biggest stars of all time in the span of about 3 years.

When did he say he was going to stay full time?

When The Rock said finally he has come back "home", he meant he returned back to the wrestling business (his home growing up) after 7 years.

I was watching every RAW in the lead up to Wrestlemania this year. I'm an attitude era fan. The Rock has clearly lost it. He's still a draw of course but his promos were lame and he was clearly being beaten by Cena, something I never thought I would say. He also blew up in his Wrestlemania match. In hindsight Cena should have been booked to beat Rock but lose to Lesnar the next month. The fact that the WWE did it the opposite way makes no sense at this point in time.

I know eh, but we still have that toy as the WWE Championship, what a disgrace :picard:

lol at Slater getting owned by Lita, and I popped when the APA music hit, OMG was the WWF loaded with talent or what?

Overall, pretty good show, but I would have loved for Stone Cold to come and give the Attitude Era title to CM Punk, I can't stand the current title, it's a god damn toy.
