Entertainment The Rock might have had his funniest WWE moment ever with 2000 interview
Fans can't stop singing Drew McIntyre's praises as new report emerges
WWE Superstar Drew McIntyre was “extremely sick” days before Crown Jewel, it has now been claimed. However, the Scotsman, to his credit, was described as being “adamant” about still wrestling Karrion Kross on the show. And now, Drew is earning serious plaudits for his commitment to the fans having wrestled despite being seriously under the […]However, the Scotsman, to his credit, was described as being “adamant” about still wrestling Karrion Kross on the show.
is arguably the greatest talker in history with a collection of epic promos that are unlikely to ever be topped.
The Great One’s sheer charisma and undeniable star power came across whenever he raised a microphone. He could be deadly serious or laugh out loud hilarious or a combination of both. He simply had the audience in the palm of his hand.
This was perhaps no more evident on the December 4th, 2000 episode of Raw where in a backstage interview, The Rock broke down each of his opponents for the 6-man Hell in a Cell match at Armageddon six days later in brilliant fashion.
Armageddon had an all-star cast, which made the promo all the better
With opponents like Kurt Angle, The Undertaker,, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Rikishi, most men would have been daunted for what lay ahead and possibly looked to make allies for the match. Not The Rock, however.
Rare behind-the-scenes footage the The Shield backstage in WWE is fascinating
WWE has shared some rare behind-the-scenes footage featuring The Shield just after their debut. The footage shows Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns recording to opening for their iconic entrance theme, which was used from 2012-2014. Fans have enjoyed seeing the rarely-seen-before footage of The Shield as WWE prepares to celebrate ten years since […]The footage shows Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns recording to opening for their iconic entrance theme, which was used from 2012-2014.
Instead, he imitated all of them with enough stand out lines to cover a normal wrestler’s career in just two minutes backstage.
Take a look at the clip below (shared on Twitter by) for some of the best humour in WWE history.
VIDEO: The Rock’s funniest ever promo?
The Rock cut every single man down in hilariously brilliant fashion
In the space of a two minute interview with Kevin Kelly, The Rock transforms into parody versions of four of the biggest stars in WWE history and well, Rikishi, whose push as a mega heel came out of nowhere and never really led anywhere. He was simply better as a mid-card fun-loving and dancing babyface.
Angle was the WWE Champion yet he was reduced to a milk drinking, cookie eating man with possible erectile dysfunction. Yes, it was the Attitude Era.
WWE's current injury list is brutal and makes for some really rough viewing
WWE has several of its top Superstars out right now, and unfortunately for Triple H, the list keeps on growing. The likes of Randy Orton, Logan Paul and Becky Lynch feature in a list of 15 WWE Superstars that are injured and out of action right now. It’s when all the names are spelt out […]The likes of Randy Orton, Logan Paul and Becky Lynch feature in a list of 15 WWE Superstars that are injured and out of action right now.
Rikishi had previously claimed he ran over Stone Cold to put his “cousin” Rocky at the top of the company, but that doesn’t sit well with The People’s Champ who tells him “Shut your mouth you thong wearing fatty.”
Triple H’s enunciation is mocked, with The Game having a tendency way back when to drag out word for further emphasis. Stephanie was just a constant source of jokes for both The Rock and Chris Jericho. The boss’ daughter? Free reign in the world of professional wrestling.
The Rock could say and do whatever he liked in 2000
As The Undertaker and Stone Cold are fellow “good guys,” their commentary is less offensive but just as funny. The Rock wearing the Texas Rattlesnake’s hat, talking about “Steveweisers,” and listening to the Backstreet Boys is just top-level entertainment.
The Rock closes off the promo by reverting to his own character and placing a pair of glasses on. Again, sunglasses inside made no sense, especially in December but it’s The Rock. He made anything cool.
WWE fans really aren't happy about the latest news surrounding Roman Reigns
Roman Reigns is set to miss Elimination Chamber, and WWE fans are not happy about it. Reigns was left off the promotional material for Elimination Chamber, meaning he’s likely to miss the show. As the final pay-per-view before WrestleMania 39, fans expected Roman to feature, but that seemingly won’t be happening. What is WWE planning […]Reigns was left off the promotional material for Elimination Chamber, meaning he’s likely to miss the show.
The reaction of the live audience tells you everything you need to know. This was the hottest time ever in WWE and the end of their best year ever, and The Rock was simply the man. As mentioned above, him, Stone Cold and The Undertaker being “good guy” babyfaces told you everything about that era in the industry.
As for the match itself, Angle retained his title in a chaotic match, which is covered in depth
What’s next for The Rock?
It has been heavilythat The Rock will return to the ring for a mega match with Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39. This will be his first match since 2013 outside of a six-second squash of Erick Rowan at WrestleMania 32.
How this family feud will be set up is unclear as things stand but it is sure to main event one of the two nights and be one of the biggest matches in WrestleMania history.
