Rock's Promo from the 10th anniversary of Smackdown, don't know how long it'll be up for.

Embedding doesn't work, sorry.


Awesome, started watching it then stopped as i will prefer to see that on SD in HD. Come back ROCK!!!! we need you. On a serious note surely a stint in WWE as it is now so child friendly is exactly what The Rock's Disney film career needs?


Wait till you've watched the whole thing.


Do you think the SD version will be cut down, should i just go ahead and watch it now?


No idea. But at the end he does mention that he will be hosting raw at some point.

He's got a film out in November so I'd guess it will be then.

That would only be super awesome if it was the Sheffield one that i'm going to. Obviously won't be though, which is a shame. But Rock on RAW for one night only, i'll take that. For now!

As long as the writers don't neuter The Rock. It's either "VINTAGE!!11!" Rock or no Rock. I don't want to see PG Rock.

I wish The Rock would go back to his non-shouty promo-ing.

When was the last time The Rock appeared on a WWE show? The promo he did on Raw for the McMahon hair vs hair before Wrestlemania?

I forgot to mention that the second bout on Smackdown this past week (Kane against Slam Master J) didn't make any sense because the previous segment of Slam Master spay painting Vince's picture (shown later in the evening) was cut on Sky Sports.

Graffiti isn't PG!

(That Rock promo was brilliant, BTW)

Hell in a Cell is this Sunday so it's time for the GRAPL predictions. But first a recap of the rules. I suggest some of you read this as every question I was asked during the bonus round was already addressed in here. Never be afraid to ask a question but don't be a lazy sod either.

GRAPL is simple to play. The Friday before every WWE PPV this year I'll post up a prediction sheet. You enter your predictions and post the sheet. For every one you get right you earn points and points are tallied up on the leaderboard. If you are top of the leaderboard after Wrestlemania next year then you win!

Same as last year you can change your predictions as many times as you like up till the 11pm Sunday deadline. Anyone found to be editing posts after that will be disqualified from that PPV. Any changes to the PPV after I've posted the prediction form will be ignored and the predictions for that match will be null and void. You can enter as little PPV's as you like.

GRAPL Leaderboard
Zellery - 74
Deadpool - 70
Taskmaster - 66
AJ STYLES - 64
Balloon Sod - 63
Hank Scorpio - 62
Return of the star - 62
sw26 - 62
Sykes - 59
Trugamez - 58
Drumstick- 56
Lonestar - 55
Adam Pollard - 55
Born Skippy - 54
KKLEIN - 53
E-man - 51
Irene Demova - 51
Teh Bork - 51
Dark Dragon 64 - 51
Gaminglegend - 50
Chocolate Jim - 49
Lucien - 47
Blackouthero - 46
Prototype - 45
Cropolite - 43
Ginga - 33
Ironmaiden - 25
Baronzemo - 18

Zellery is still numero uno. BUT he's said that he's not around here anymore and won't be entering anymore rounds. So this is everyone's chance to claim a stake at the top.

I'm way behind in Wrestling like most other things at the moment.

I'm just watching the week before lasts RAW and the first thing that struck me is that Rhodes seems to be getting bigger. He was always in good shape but was quite slim with it (in comparison to say HHH at least), but now he seems to be bulking up which says to me he's going to be the next big thing and someone has asked him to get on the 'roids.

Anyone else noticed this?

I pray for him to be the next big thing, he's a really like-able character

The new ring announcer of SmackDown, Lauren Mayhew, was pulled from her ring announcing duties during last night's SmackDown television taping in Boston. She reportedly missed her cues during the dark match and was replaced by Justin Roberts for the rest of the taping.

"She was sort of scolded at ringside by WWE staff and then went backstage only to return some time later and sit at ringside the entire night," a fan in attendance wrote. "Mayhew took notes all night long."


The Raw rating dropped to a 3.1 this week. They're up against really strong competition on Monday's now. I think it also proves that the ratings are coming from the celebrity guests - & not the actual wrestling. This week people just weren't interested in Al Sharpton.

As if Raw didn't already feel like an eternity, the WWE & USA Network have scheduled two 3 hour episodes. The first is on the 23rd November.

And for those that watch ECW, Tiffany is no longer the General Manager. William Regal has taken over temporarily. In the storyline, Miss Silly Knockers has had a car accident.
