Let me Take you back to 2003. I was 9 years old, and The rock v Stone cold rivalry was the thing going on in the WWE at the time. The charisma the rock brought to the ring was superhero like. I had watched wrestling for a couple years before that, but beyond guys beating each other up, I thought nothing more of it. When the rock came down, in the leather vest and sunglasses, it clicked. The guy made me love wrestling for what it was. Fast forward to 2011, and im a smarky teenager. The rocks return was huge, but when I really got into it was when the Cena feud started. I know people thought the rivalry was stupid, but c`mon, the rock had some hilarious lines. Homeless power ranger and transvestite wonder woman come to mind. And yeah, at that point, I was still one of the rocks Millions and millions. But ever since his return in January, I`ve been very conflicted. This was because of one man. CM Punk. Something about punk was so raw, so real, and I loved it. But when the rock returned, I didnt know how to feel. I knew in my heart, The rock was getting taken out to the woodshed on the mic, each and every week. I knew punk was the future, and I knew the rock was back to promote another movie. But then something odd happened. At the royal rumble, I marked out. I dont know why or how it happened, it just did. When he won the title, I was pumping my fist, happy as hell. I woke up the next morning thinking, " wait a minute, a timer just took the belt from the future of the company", this displeased my inner smarkiness. So last night, I was all out screaming at my TV for Punk to win. And when the rock won, I was screaming " FUCK YOU ROCK!!". But then I thought again. "Isnt this the guy who made me love this in the first place??". I then felt so weird. I realized that I had turned on my childhood hero. Now my mark and smark sides are fighting each other. Do I like the rock or dont I?? What do you think cagesiders?? Once a fan always a fan?? or has the rock lost his luster??
