Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson took to his Facebook account to address John Cena’s recent comments that The Rock said he would never leave again and that he hasn’t been on TV since making those statements.
What follows is 11 minutes of vintage Rock that really doesn’t need much set up.
Being WWE, this has “worked shoot” written all over it. The Rock is so damn good at doing it though, he actually has you wondering where the line between work and shoot is.
He mentions that he is going to kick Cena’s ass before they get to Wrestlemania in Miami, and he says that its going to happen “where it all started for The Rock” and “The Rock and his fans became one.”
He is referring to Wrestlemania 13, where he had a match against The Sultan (who would later become Rikishi). This match is widely credited as the beginning of the transformation from “The Blue Chipper” Rocky Maivia to The Rock.
The site of Wrestlemania 13? Chicago, Illinois, site of this weekends Money in the Bank pay per view.
That alone should be worth a few Pay Per View buys.
Cena in turn has responded via Twitter.
If this is how they are going to build this feud, I’ll quote The Rock “bring it”
