The Rock comes out to a great ovation to talk about his match with CM Punk at Elimination Chamber. He talks about CM Punk stealing the title, but he is not a champion. Punk comes on the tron with Heyman and the belt, and they exchange some words. Rock finally says that on Sunday he will get the beating that will stay with him for the rest of his life. He then says If you smell what The Rock is cooking, in a serious tone. I liked the way they interacted, and it was not a forced comedy act. Sometimes, the best promos are the ones that are real and serious. Well done.
–The Shield comes out and attacks Brodus Clay and Tensai. Ambrose cuts a quick promo about what will happen this Sunday. So, they go from Cena/Ryback/Sheamus and then attack two guys like Clay and Tensai? I would much rather have seen them attack someone important or notable. The Shield needs to stay relevant each week and this does not do much for me when watching them. Grade: B-
