After a seven-year hiatus, in which he became a movie star, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson made his return to pro wrestling on Monday Night Raw in Anaheim, Calif. The lights dimmed as seemingly random sounds seemed to be coming out of the sound system before The Rock’s trademark “If ya smell what the Rock is cookin'” blared over the speakers.
The crowd went nuts, but the best reaction of all might have come from a YouTube commenter known only as “Komatose89.”
“Im a 21 year old man, and Im NOT ashamed to say I cried a little when I saw this,” he wrote. “This is MY generation of wrestling.”
Mr. Tose probably wasn’t alone, as probably any male between the ages of 15 and 30 rejoiced at the site of The Rock in a wrestling ring. He isn’t fighting just yet, as he’s only returning to host WrestleMania XXVII in April, but the 38-year-old just made wrestling relevant again to millions of former fans around the country.

Anyone who’s been involved in debates or has studied the topic knows there are such things as logical fallacies of argument. Can you spot any here?
“That’s a brilliant comment….’If baseball players can spit, so can Tiger.’ How about, ‘If murderers can kill, we all can kill.’ ‘If demo-derby drivers can run into each other, than we can on the highways too.’ Those makes just as much sense. You’re confusing apples and oranges”
