Default Is John Cena/Randy Orton like the PG Era's version of The Rock/Austin?

I just watched the promo for the Cena/Orton Iron Man match at Bragging Rights and it kind of reminded of The Rock/Austin rivalry from the good ol' days. Obviously, The Rock and Stone Cold are on a different planet (in the eyes of most fans anyway), but it got me thinking...































The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin were the two biggest stars of the Attitude Era, undoubtedly. Orton and Cena are the two biggest stars of this era. The PG Era, call it what you like.































Do you think Orton/Cena rivalry has the potential to match The Rock/Austin, maybe even outdo it? Let me know what you think.































The aforementioned promo is at the link below. It is one of the best promos in recent times, in my opinion anyway.

If you read the whole thing, you can clearly see I said The Rock and Austin are on a different planet from Cena and Orton. I am not comparing them in terms of entertainment and electrifying the crowd, I only wanted to know your views on this.

Nothing, and I mean nothing will remind me of the Austin/ Rock rivalry because nothing can recreate it. Also Austin/Mcmahon will never be recreated. That was the greastest feud in history.

You could say that, but I don't think they can compare to Stone Cold and The Rock, John Cena and Randy Orton feud wasn't entertaining most of the matches were average and they had no chemistry in the ring what so ever. They could not electrify arena like those two guys could even though they tried most of the matches didn't the great build up and the matches did not help, you could say they are the Rock and Austin of the PG Era but I wont since they don't,really have anything similar.

You know what.....NO.....and heres why:































I heard people say the same thing for Cena and Batista. Now people are saying it for Cena and Orton. All it is is fans LOOKING for the next Rock/Stone Cold combo and its not going to happen.































Orton and Cena are a lame @ss version of Warrior and Hogan

Personally i hate this comparison because neither Orton or Cena were as entertaining as Rock or Austin. Although they are trying to fill in their places they're failing at it. And nothing can beat Rock vs Austin rivalry. It was simply the best rivalry ever. Alright i would have to say yes because they're the two biggest names in WWE even though i don't like them.

The only way they can be compared is that it's the biggest star vs the biggest star. Other than that, no comparison.































Edit: My bad. Didn't read the whole thing thoroughly.

No I slightly disagree.















1. Randy Orton= SCSA















They both have nicknames that are a snake, finishers are kind of the same in look and both can come out of nowhere, and both wrestlers don't care about anything except themselves and winning.















2. John Cena= Hulkster















Both are crowd pleasers both have signitures that are of the ropes and both somehow no matter how bad they are getting beat at the start of the match they pull of a win (I just relized hulk Hogan is a horrible wrestler)















3. The Rock= The Miz















Both have great mic skills they run their mouths to any of everyone they talk to both names start with The and both talk in 3rd person: The Rock says, I'm The Miz and...

I understand what your asking.































Orton Cena probably would never out do nor match the Austin Rock fueds,































My reason, Completely different Era's. There were alot more Die-Hard fans in the 90's I believe that this PG Era call it what you want, Some of us have lost interest in WWE why? They have based it on alot more entertainment now instead of wrestling also this whole wellness thing has limited the wrestlers of todays moves.































You dont see fans talking about Cena Orton thier fued much do we? Reason behind that it lacks character, it lacks story telling, it lacks wrestling, Orton can not give decent promos Cena well most of his promos are the same lines just mixed up. I dont even have to go into how much charisma story telling Austin Rock gave us, We know they did.































Im not bashing Orton or Cena. This is just how I see it...
