Default Why is The Rock nicknamed The People's Champ?

Steve Austin, Bret Hart, The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Triple H, John Cena and so many other great WWE Heavyweight Champion are never nicknamed The People's Champ despite they are great champions and have hell of title reign.































So, what's so special about The Rock's reign WWE Heavyweight Champion that he's nicknamed The People's Champ?















BQ: In your opinion, which WWE wrestler whose character is live and die for World Title: try his best to keep World Title as long as he can and willing to pay any price to regain it, and fighting till his last breath for World Title?

He named himself the people's champ (that's why when people refer to him they say the self - proclaimed people's champ.

If you want to know the truth....it's because Triple H never wanted to be the true face of wrestling because he was and still is a warrior that didn't care what the fans thought and he went his own way like the Undertaker did and im glad he did because he's the Game not a ass kisser and no matter what the Rock has done he could never brawl with the Game and that's the truth.

The Rock started to call himself The People's Champion in promo's around 1998. There was less scripting then so the top wrestlers could say what they wanted so long as they stayed on message. Of course The Rock at that time was solid gold on the mic.































promo backstage at SummerSlam 98. the amazing thing about Rock is that he'd pull off stuff this good every single show, but i have the transcript for this one whihc is why it's going here. basically he has the ladder match with HHH and Trips got attacked by The Nation during Heat so he has a leg injury.































Taken from another site:































Cole: You must feel pretty good about yourself, what are you thinking about?















Rock: Well The Rock is thinking about slapping the yellow off your teeth if you keep asking stupid questions. The fact of the matter is this ? Triple H you one-legged man, The Rock wants to know exactly how you?re gonna climb the people?s ladder and reach The Rock?s InterContinental gold with just one leg? Tonight, New York City, The Rock?s home away from home, and infront of the millions and millions of The Rock?s fans ? The Rock is guaran-damn-teeing that he?s gonna prove The Rock is The People?s Champ, The Rock is The People?s Choice, and The Rock is The Best Damn InterContinental Champ There Ever Was, If Ya Smell What The Rock Is Cookin.?















Cole: Well, thanks Rock. Gentlemen?















Rock: Shut Up! Back to the jabronis at ringside.

It has nothing to do with title reigns. What in the world are you talking about? It was a self proclaimed nickname because he started calling himself that as a heel. It was like an arrogant move at first. It was one of the many things that won him over with the fans, and eventually the fans started to embrace that and call him The Peoples Champ. Now its forever synonymous with him and he will always be The Peoples Champ. Like Austin is the Rattlesnake and so on........































BQ Triple H.

Calling himself The People's Champ didn't have anything to do with the WWE Title, it was all about the arrogance of The Rock (the GIMMICK, not Dwayne Johnson). The Rock felt he was so good, so much better than everybody else, that everybody had no choice but to see and acknowledge his greatness. And by their acknowledging his greatness he believed the People felt he was their champion whether or not he had any sort of championship belt. The Rock believed the People felt he was the best of all-time, therefore THE champion. And because The Rock believed the People felt this way, The Rock considered himself their champion. The People's Champion.































BQ: I would say Triple H. In his prime (the mid-00's) he often said the WWE Title meant more to him than anything else in the world, and that he would sell his grandmother to get and keep it. We've seen him beat up, bleeding, and injured, and STILL keep fighting to gain or hold on to the WWE Title.
