It's pretty much the same character as the babyface Rock from 2002 or 2004. Just less entertaining now.

He's doing more now that he was back in 2002-2004 combined. Plus being champion too.

He might be less entertaining, but he can only do so much with what he works with.

What do you mean "he can only do so much with what he works with"?

I think his promos this year have been very boring. Caters way too much to the live crowd and makes it boring for the TV audience. I don't know how much of this is The Rock's fault and how much of it can be blamed on the writing, but sometimes, it's hard to watch.

How's the weather supposed to be for 'Mania?

If it gets cold, are there going to be precautions that WWE will take to make it more comfortable for the performers and fans alike?

We probably just finished up our last two cold days until the fall so that's good. Weather sites have Sunday at upper 50's during the day, and probably below 50 by the time the event is over. Should be good for everyone, wrestlers and fans.

Now I'm sure people coming from warm weather destinations will find it cold, but locals and people from cold climates will enjoy the weather.

I heard similar, high 40s and into the 50s in the afternoon. Slight chance of showers in the afternoon which would kinda suck.

Still trying to nail down my plans for Sunday. We're coming from the Boston area and still don't have a grill or any sort of game plan.

What time is everyone planning on arriving? I think I'd like to get there around noon, set everything up and have the grill loaded by 130ish. Feast for a few hours and head inside a little after 6.

Bull crap. TV PG doesnt mean you cant be entertaining.

Too much TV PG blaming going around here. The Rock just isnt entertaining as he used to be. Period.

CM Punk dropped a hell of a spoiler on his Twitter. It's about his entrance to "and from" the ring. The "and from" part is just posturing I think, but still an awesome little spoiler. I'm so stoked for this now.

The Rock definitely isn't as entertaining as he used to be. I still love him but he's adopted the Cena method of yelling promos at me since he's been back.

What spoiler? That Living Color is there live to do his entrance?

I know it won't happen, but I would love to see Punk bust out the Pepsi Plunge in his match against Taker.

Just read that. I'm stoked. And I don't think they'll be playing him from the ring either. Unless something happens post-match, like a further frustration beatdown of 'Taker or even a handshake/show of respect between the two.

not sure if they show all ppv but theres a sports resto/bar that has the WM poster. I guess i only wanna watch the 3 main events + del rio. The problem os that they randomly put a ****** match to cool the crowd. I wish they would leave those at the very end oh well.

I meant talent wise. Look at the difference between the eras. Back then, he had better talent to work with to get the best out of him. Plus when he was there full time, his mic work was fresh. I agree, he isn't as entertaining anymore, but people just trash at just about any minor thing. Enjoy having him around and stop *****ing! (not you necessarily.)

I agree. People like Jericho, Austin, Triple H got the best out of him promo wise. Matching drama with drama with Cena, just makes for horrible promo work.

Leaving my house at 12:30, we got about a 15 minute drive from my house, not sure what to expect in regards to crowd, but for football, traffic is sometimes tough getting in, so I'll be happy if we have the grill going and beers open by 1:30.

Also, going into MetLife is a bit of a hassle, give yourself some time. They pat everyone down pretty good, so give yourself a good 30 minutes before you want to be in your seats. Think they are opening the stadium at 4:30 so hopefully a lot of people go in early.

A lot of people will take the train , and will go right in so that's good.

I was thinking about taking the train but after going to the prudential center from the island it's going to be a nightmare probably just going to drive.

Not sure if they were posted but i saw some pictures online of the ring and set it looks awesome I would post pictures but I'm on phone.

Well that pretty much guarantees it's going to rain during the event.

Weather.com has high 60 low 49
Accuweather has high 58 low 45
Weather.gov has high 58 low 46
Weatherunderground has high 68? low 46

Not showing any high chances of rain so I think we are in for a good day/night.
