Fill in the Blank Friday: The Rock

In 2011, the Rock returned to WWE Monday Night Raw and announced to the world that he was "here to stay."   Many fans took his words to be the truth, while cynics like most us of who write wrestling blogs knew he wouldn't really leave Hollywood to return full time to the ring.  I don't blame him for that.  After all, in the first six months of 2013, the star had earned $46 million dollars.  I have no idea how much he was making at the height of his wrestling career, but I'd imagine it was no where near that.

So the Rock had a few matches from late 2011 until his final (so far) encounter at Wrestlemania 29 against John Cena.  The Great One even held the WWE championship for a few months, ending CM Punk's long talked about title reign of 434 days.

You know how this works (I hope).  I present three statements, and you comment below by filling in the blank.

Passing the torch?

  1. 1. Dolph Ziggler OR Daniel Bryan. I really can't choose.

    2.Any match with Triple H. Triple H was to The Rock what CM Punk is to John Cena. They brought out the best in each other.

    3. The Rundown
