Who Can Cut a Better Promo?
 
In my mind, Jericho has had the slight edge.

ColePens 11-17-2012 01:23 AM

Rock and it's not even close. Best delivery of all time. I don't care if his promo is on his hand, on a screen, or being said to him in his ear... his delivery is the best.

Fro 11-17-2012 01:49 AM

best promo for me is Jericho...just because he can do it different ways and methods...Rocks always seemed cookie cutter to me...

Pinkfloyd 11-17-2012 10:31 AM

To me, promos are all about the reaction you get from the crowd. Regardless of the style used, Rock always drew better reactions than Jericho.

Jericho.

M.C.G. 31 11-17-2012 11:08 AM

Jericho, but its really ****ing close.

Everyone always said, if there's one guy that can hang with Rock on the mic, it's Jericho, I think Jericho is better. He never fails to impress on the mic and his promos.

duckchobbins 11-17-2012 11:13 AM

Easily the Rock for me. Both guys great at ripping up the mic, but the Rock was always must see TV, and kept the crowd hanging on every word he said, sometimes for over 15 minutes.

TheMurdocktor 11-17-2012 03:27 PM

The Rock for me. And I'm a big Jerichoholic.

ColePens 11-17-2012 03:55 PM

I think we have to separate which one we prefer over which won is better. Rock is better in just about every way. Nobody can hold people that long. Jericho is funny and probably preferred around here as he does a good job with a heel promo.

However... Rock's promo in Toronto compared to anything Jericho does... and it doesn't even come close.

OmniSens 11-17-2012 04:42 PM

Today, Jericho has the edge. Rock still gets my vote as the best between the two overall in their careers

M.C.G. 31 11-17-2012 04:47 PM

Chris Jericho, for me, could cut promos in different ways and gimmicks and still own. His honest man shtick was great, his jerichoholic stuff was awesome early in WWE, and his comeback was great.

The Rock is amazing (and most charismatic ever) with his insults, but I don't think he could do what Jericho did if he completely flipped his character. Rock building up to WM28 was disappointing, for me at least, and a letdown compared to his earlier stuff.

That's why I give Jericho the slight edge, but they're both the best at what they do, along with the likes of Austin, HHH (when he's really in his groove), HBK, etc.

BrickAHL 11-17-2012 04:50 PM

Jericho.

Hackett 11-17-2012 05:25 PM

The Rock, but it is close.

Lets put it this way. If I heard Y2J and Rock's promos for the first time, its Rock in a landslide.

However, Rock's promos get cliched, and pretty darn predictable over time, whereas Y2J kept me on edge most of the time, especially in his attitude era character.

When they feuded together, they didn't even need to wrestle, the promos alone were all I needed to be entertained :laugh:

Morozov 11-17-2012 05:58 PM

The Rock for sure and I love Jericho.

lol

it's funny how people actually think that wasnt a plant

Crimson Skorpion 11-17-2012 06:57 PM

The Rock, easily.

I do prefer serious, heel Jericho though. Especially his long feud with HBK that included HBK's wife taking a stiff shot.

The Shockmaster 11-17-2012 07:02 PM

I was never fond of that feud.

OmniSens 11-17-2012 07:26 PM

The Rock has the peoples eyebrow. What does Jericho have? :P :sarcasm:

iamjs 11-17-2012 08:07 PM

Rock might have better delivery, but it's basically sing-a-long with the Rock as soon as he grabs the mic.

and the crowd always ate it up...

MarleauApologist 11-17-2012 11:14 PM

Jericho is more interesting and less "I'm the rock, I'm gonna lay the Smackdown on your candy ass, Jabroni."

I like The Rock though and I put them about even, Jericho just slightly higher.

Jericho easily could be a high ticket actor.

KesselBuiltMyHotrod 11-17-2012 11:24 PM

lots of Canadians itt.

He has RAW! ;)

One Man Rock Band 11-18-2012 01:43 PM

Jericho, but it's close. Jericho has just done it with so many more gimmicks - where Rock has basically just done the same gimmick as a face and a heel. He was terrible at cutting promos as Rocky Maivia where-as Jericho was awesome the moment he stepped into WCW.

On that same note though - The Hurricane/The Rock backstage segments were my favourite segments of all-time.
