I was reading some other sites this morning and ran across this -

Source - PWTorch Staff: Posted on Dec 15, 2011 @ 2:24:42 AM

The following is a direct quote from headlines at PWTorch;


UFC Lightheavyweight champion Jon "Bones" jones called out The Rock in a segment at ESPN's offices this week. Jones and Rock are competing for ESPN SportsNation's "Awesomest Dude Of The Year" award, and Rock is currently in the lead over Jones. To demonstrate his "awesomeness," Jones kicked an iPad in an interview with ESPN TV personality Michelle Beadle.

End Quote from PWTorch Staff.

I thought it might be a good topic to discuss here at EWN where real discussions take place. So what do you think Rock's chances would be against Jon "Bones" Jones? I know it's in fun for an "Awesomest Dude Of The Year" award from ESPN, but I thought it would be funny if Rock actually tried to fight Jones. Which if he runs his mouth too much about it, he might just get a surprise visit from Jones. (Hey I can dream can't I?). And yes I hate Rock that much to wish the kind of real damage he would receive from Jon "Bones" Jones upon him. Anyone's thoughts or opinions on this? And lets keep it nice!

Please state who you think deserves the "Awesomest Dude Of The Year" award from ESPN and why.

My vote is Jon "Bones" Jones because he's just well... Awesome! He's good at wrestling, boxing, kickboxing, Muy Thai fighting, Jiu Jitsu, and in giving great interviews, in which he can back up his mouth. Unlike someone else I know... Need I say more?

I refer you to his t-shirt sir.

If that's not enough, Miz has finished runner up in a series of Tough Enough.
Neither of the other two have ever even been asked to be involved in TE!


It's not really a serious award is it, awesomest man... Just a grown up nicktoons award for the ESPN audience, a bit of fun :)

Its a sports theme award....Rock hasn't done much this year related to "sports"......in that case they may as well nominate Snooki for "Awesome Dudette of the Year"

Wade Barrett 1979
12-15-2011, 03:19 PM
What I really don't get is those who get pissed at others, if they really dislike the Rock!! Don't give me any bollocks about giving respect either, it is an individual's perogative if they wish to dislike someone! You don't have to respect someone because others believe you should or they say, 'but he/she did so much for the industry/sport/whatever and because of that... and so on ad nausem! I know it sounds really harsh but that's human nature! I don't respect people because I'm being told by others I have to, that's completely missing the point!! If I wish to not show respect, then I'm sorry but tough shit, I'm not going to show any respect!

Oh and before I get jumped on, I do like the Rock and I am for one really looking forward to his match at WM
and have immensly enjoyed his return!!

Wade I actually like debates and people with other view points, I like it when they use logic to argue their view points. I have yet to see a compelling arguement against the Rock. I'm not a Rock mark by any means, he's never been one of my top 5 wrestlers but I've yet to see him give anyone a reason to hate on him. He's the only top guy I've ever seen besides Flair that never had a problem with jobbing, he was the only top guy back in the day that would job to Jericho cleanly. It wasn't even his fault when he left the WWE, that was Johny Ace's fault, he let the Rocks contract expire without so much as a phone call or a thank you.

He left for Hollywood? Not because Ace forgot to renew his contract.

Why do you need to have reasons? Why must someone define their dislike, for you to understand? This can be applied to any argument or situation, why must there be a reason for you to accept?

Jon Jones, while morning medidating in a park, stops a mugger and goes on to win the UFC light heavyweight championship later the same day!

No fucking contest. Jones is FAR more awesome. It's the voters who are fucked in the head.

That's the only reason I know his name. That alone deserves the title of Awesomest Dude of the Year.

If I didn't know that was him I would say it goes to The Rock. How awesome can someone be if you've never heard of them?

Robstar
12-15-2011, 09:19 PM

to be a little fair, i dont think the choice has to be sports related. awesomest dude of the year comes off more like who a guy thinks is the awesomest dude of the year and not the best athlete of the year like your implying.

Jons stopping that mugger before his fight was an awesome thing to do. I haven't seen Rock do anything of that nature. Also I know Rock is in Movies, ect... and has a fan base, but compared to Jones who has morals and does the right thing both inside and outside the cage, he should get the award hands down.

Peter Kaymakcian
12-15-2011, 11:48 PM
Jones wins easy because one this is an ESPN pole meaning mostly sports fans which this. Most sports fans have no respect for wrestling or wrestlers so I can't see the Rock winning this competition. I think in a fight Jones would beat the Rock in no more then three minutes.
