    (WWE) - The Rock was recently interviewed by Moviefone, here are the highlights…

    On Finding Time to Train: You fit it in, that's what you do. I make sure there's a ring on location with me, anywhere that I shoot. I had a ring down in New Orleans, when I was preparing for the Madison Square Garden event. I have a ring down in Florida, a ring down in Louisiana; there's always a ring close by. In order to prep for WrestleMania, it's a lengthy training camp that requires daily work inside the ring because you can't simulate the physicality of professional wrestling.

    Will John Cena Give Him Any Trouble?: The only trouble he's going to have is removing my size 15 boot from his ladyparts. That's right -- I'm excited about all the projects you just mentioned. I'm excited about WrestleMania; to be able to go back, team up with Vince [McMahon] and make a big vision like that come to life and create the biggest match-up of all time is very special to me. There's countless matches that have moved me and inspired me, and we're going to do something very special down in Miami, my hometown, sold-out Sun Life Stadium. Boots to John Cena's ass.

    On His Next Film Projects: We just wrapped "Snitch," that was a hell of a schedule and we shot six day weeks, for six weeks in a row. That was a very intense role, but I loved playing it and it was an honor to become that man. Those are real events and real stakes between the U.S. government and drug cartels and a family.

    ["Pain and Gain,"] again, unbelievably a true story. We're in pre-production, and we're all -- meaning my team and Paramount and Michael Bay -- crossing "t"s and dotting "i"s. I've known Michael for some time, this has been a passion project of his, he gave me the script to read years ago, I loved it and wanted to make it then. Unfortunately, we have a very small window of time to shoot it before I go off and film "Fast Six."

  2. I love his dedication to getting back into in ring condition. Alot of stars of his stature would have half assed it.
     
  3. Main eventing WrestleMania aswell, in his home town. The tickets sold out within the first 2minutes, damn. I don't like the fact that he "bring's it" via satellite, though.
     
  4. He can't come to every single event because he's always shooting - as he kind of said above, he has some tough schedules. I love his training dedication, and he obviously still loves wrestling and the fans. I don't believe it was just for one pay-check.
     
  5. I'm unaware it it's a one pay-check, either. All I'm saying is if he's saying 'finally I'm back' make sure he actually means it and not disappear. In other words, he shouldn't say 'I'm back' when he's not.
     
  6. Seeing a guy every week can make him stale. (See Austin 2003)

    Regardless of what some believe, seeing Rock weekly would grow as stale as anybody would

    Long story short, have him pop his head in every few months and everyone is happy
     
  7. Six days for six weeks fml doing something I loved?

    Looks to me like a cry baby footballer getting overpaid for jack!

    I do six days near everyweek I dont cry and I don't get Rock's money!

    Get a grip please!
     
  8. When he said "I'm back" I think he means like Stone Cold. Stone Cold arguably bigger than Rock in his time (I and many others think so) never left WWE completely. Made appearances regularly, Rock left for 7 years and no trace of him. Now he's come back he's referencing WWE, getting involved, obviously the big story-line with Cena. I reckon every year once a year he'll turn up and electrify. Isn't that all we can ask as mega-fans of The Rock?

    It's not something he HAS to do. However, I do believe he could have turned up more and done less satellite interviews - but it's not a perfect world ladies and gentlemen. If it was, Jerry Lawler would be the WWE backstage cleaner.
     
  9. agree @ crayo

    Lawler...*sigh*.... has over welcomed his stay. Everyone else has moved on, yet he's still doing same the boring shtick.

    He isn't bad, his time is just up. I like the way WWE changes ring announcers, and its worked so far
     
  10. Agree with it all apart from "He isn't bad" I'm sorry but he's not bad, he's revoltingly terrible.

    Kane re-debuts the mask, Cole sells it, King goes "ughhh" and has an attempted female-orgasm. Cole says "Look at this nerd, he's absolutely terrible" King will reply "shut up Cole"

    King "Vickie you're so fat" *viewer looks below to see his beer belly*. He'll perv on divas but not credit any real stars. He's lost his talent, he doesn't like being a commentator he's said so before.
     
  11. What about the Henry/Big Show superplex ring collapse and Lawler sold it, "I've never seen anything like it"

    Bullsh** Lawler, it happened 8 years ago w/Lesnar and the f***ing Big Show!

    The Miz/R-Truth attack HIAC and Lawler "I've never seen anything like it"

    Bullsh** again, Lawler... Nexus did the same thing just one year earlier
     
  12. I know, that shit gets on my nerves. It's a massive insult to the fans. Why can he not just say "Omg this is even bigger than when Lesnar did it to Show, did you see that?!" or something.

    Argh, he provides NO commedy, no push for faces, no heat for heels, he's abysmal. Regal, Stanford, Matthews, JBL, Booker, all of them I'd happily see replace him.
