Finally …

For the first time in 10 years, The Great One brought it to the blue brand as only The Rock can, electrifying his hometown Miami crowd and responding to Punk’s criticisms about his time playing college football at Miami. The Rock capped off an impassioned speech about his playing days by emphatically telling Punk that he will defeat the WWE Champion at Royal Rumble.

But the good vibes were stopped short when Team Rhodes Scholars emerged and interrupted The People’s Champion, threatening to force The Rock from the ring if he proved unable to answer three questions from the erudite (and arrogant) tag team. Proving just why he is The Great One, Rocky outsmarted the duo, before finishing off Team Rhodes Scholars with a Rock Bottom to Damien Sandow before nailing Cody Rhodes with The People’s Elbow.
