He was a terrible face to like in my opinion. Reminds me of John cena in a way. Not rocky maivia era I’m talking about the 2002 era when he was a face. He was one of my favorites heels of all time though.

His face run in late 1999 and 2000 was great.

 

He later became pretty phoned in with promos and would just say stuff with excitement and energy, but no longer with creativity.

His face theme music was also best 99-2000

His character was never meant to be a face and they have to water it down to make it work. Much better as a heel.

And Hollywood Rock in the early 2000s was amazing. Holding his Rock concerts and just singing songs mocking the city of that night was gold.

I love his face and heel work equally. Like previously stated his 99-2000 era face work was incredible against HHH he carried the company

He was a much better heel but he was so over even as a heel they had no choice but to run with it

We had a big 10 person long ROCKY SUCKS sign during that face run at a Raw. It was taken away by security after holding it up the first time. I was pretty upset about that. This little kid in front of us just had plain ROCK sign, so I scribbled SUCKS on the back of another sign and held it up whenever he did his.

98-99 Rock is far superior to 2000-01 Rock. 
 

I honestly felt like fans were sick of him by 2001.

He was never a true face, he was a heel or a tweener. Heel was his best work.

‘Hollywood’ Rock that came back to cheat Hulk Hogan, end Stone Colds career and make Goldberg look a million dollars for the one time under the WWE brand was absolute gold.

Do you think he’s better than nation or corporate rock?

Fuck no. Nation Rock and Corporate Rock were the best of his gimmicks by far.

100%. This version was my favourite. His promo’s were less robotic, his look was better and his arrogance was dialed up to 10. This was his peak.
