    I believe it was when he subbed in for the anonymous Raw general manager later that year, and served as GM for the night.

    Why does he need to make appearances? It'd be nice, but we're not in dire need of Austin to come stun someone and drink a beer.

    This will remain in my sig until The Rock gets his WWE World Heavyweight Championship rematch.

    As much as that is run out, hes Austin so its gold.

    Rock is just as annoying with his fast voice, he was awesome when he slowed his words in 98-99 but hes so fucking annoying with how fast he has talked on the mic since 2002.

    I think his last episode ever was when he was the guest GM of RAW. He had a confrontation with Punk.

    I haven't noticed Rock speaking particularly quickly in recent years. Hell, Austin was always a pretty fast speaker.

    I'd much rather see Rock these days then Austin come back yet again to do his stunner+beer bash combo for the millionth time.

    Yes we are. Plus he has to set up the match with Punk at next years WM. Might as well plant the seed now.

    I know I've said this before, several times actually, but how are the WWE fans ever suppose to get the next Austin/Rock level superstar if the WWE keeps turning to Rock, Austin, HHH, etc everytime the ratings start to drop? I always refer back to the begining of the attitude era when WWE was getting killed in the ratings by WCW. WWE didn't try to turn to the stars of days past just for a quick ratings spike, they stayed the on path of creating new stars, and they did a great job at it by the way. It's time to let the Zigglers, Rhodes, etc take that next step instead of giving the camera time to a guy who won't be there in two months.

    This is the right answer.

    That glass breaks, and I'm in full on mark-out mode for the ensuing segment every damn time. Fact.

    Well considering the fact that he hasn't cut a good promo in years, rarely ever gets physical, and anytime he does get physical, nobody ever gets the better of him. And he hasn't done anything significant in literally 11 years. I'm glad he's gone.

    That's the kind of effect my legends title idea would make for. His music would be perfect for that. And he'll be 50 (and thus eligible for the title) in two years.

    I really don't understand the appeal of his appearances. Seriously, he just gives people shitty looking stunners and pours beer all over the place.

    I for one wouldn't want it. First off, I was never a big fan and second I hate seeing him come back, stunner some people, drink some beers, and then leave.

    He always acts like he's drunk (he barely sips any of the beer), and despite retiring from a career-ending injury, he still walks around acting like he's the ultimate badass in the world.

    I'm neither here nor there on Austin.

    I'm fine without him. If he comes back, okey dokey. And I'm really not all that excited over the GREAT ALCOHOL FEUD between him and Punk.

    I find Austin genuinely hilarious. His shit with Santino was great, and his segment with Simon Dean was pure gold.

    He poors beer in his mouth... then spits it out.

    Several people have mentioned all he does when he returns is come to the ring, stun someone, drink beer and leave.


    That's what he did his whole career.

    To me it's no different than The Rock coming back and saying his old tired lines, everyone eats that up still.

    I never was a fan of the Stone Cold character. He was actually more entertaining in USWA/WCW than he was in WWF.

    Yeah, and like I said, I have never been a big Stone Cold fan. The most I enjoyed him was when he was in ECW and in 1996-1997.

    Well that solves the mystery right there. If you didn't like him when he was active, why would you guys like him to come back?

    Fair enough.

    Not really. He cut far better promos back in the day. Stone Cold barely promos at all on his modern-day returns.

    Stone Cold does exactly the same thing every return. Sure, Rock has his catchphrases, but he's always bringing some new content to the table.

    Who did the Rock? Or Stone Cold?

    To me it's no different, there's the catchphrases with a little bit of relevance. To me it's the same thing.
