Well I wanted to start off by saying it wasn't to long ago that someone posted up a blog saying that The Rock wasn't holding back it was John Cena who held back on The Rock well whoever posted that up was wrong this is proof from an ex WWE writer who worked with The Rock and Stone Cold back in the day....
Ladies and gentlemen !!!
Proved that WWE has limited The Rock's mic skills and was trying to make Cena look good.
Seth Mates (Former WWE Writer) Says Triple H Is Behind The Resentment of The Rock. and says Rock has held back against Cena. Why The Rock hasn't Buried Cena, and much more. take a read:
- Former WWE creative team member Seth Mates recently spoke about the resentment some WWE talent has for the Rock's return and more. Check out the highlights:
On backstage resentment of the Rock: "The resentment towards Rock always struck me as a little bit funny. Because the thing about Rock is that people like are jealous of Rock not for stealing the spot but for being one of the guys who got out. You know he made it. He made it in a big way. He made a ton of money. And then he had an exit plan. And now he can come back and work when he wants. And it's not like Rock is coming back and working with a gu...y who – he's coming back to help make John Cena bigger than Cena ever was. He's coming back to work with a guy who works house shows and who works Raw. You know. He's coming back and he's bringing mainstream attention. I can't speak to the locker room leader this and whatever. I just know that wrestlers like to talk, wrestlers like to stir the pot, wrestlers like to cause trouble. Not a knock on them. Everybody does in every profession. You know every job I've ever had people talk you know what about other people in the room. Rock's not stealing anybody's spot. Rock is brining a lot of eyeballs.
On Triple H's jealousy driving the resentment: "I know that a lot of the stuff that Cena has said about Rock and his feelings towards Rock sound like something that would be coming directly from, you know Mr. Helmsley and his view. Because, again, as I said, I always sensed some insecurities as related to Rock and to [Steve] Austin and how, again, in my mind and perception, he never was at that level. And so he wanted to position himself as, well, I'm as good, if not better. Which I don't know that he has done that."
On the Rock holding back in his promos against John Cena: "Rock has one massive piece of ammo to use on Cena. Rock could argue that unlike other superstars, he left the business still on top and didn't feel the need to hang around and take other guy's spots. Rock could argue that by his leaving when he did it gave the opportunity for someone like Cena to be showcased. If Rock we were really selfish and didn't respect the business, he would have hung around for more paydays and taken up a lot more main event spots, much like others who we all know. It was almost exactly around the time that Rock left that Cena started to take off. The point right here, that point right there would silence Cena and his backers. Food for thought. So, yeah, the Trish/Melina thing, and then – an interesting way. I hadn't thought about looking at it that way. But Rock could go, you know had I stuck around, John, you would not have emerged when you did because you would have never taken my spot."
