The Rock Breaks Down Crying With AEW Star

There is no doubt that The Rock is still regarded as of the most popular pro wrestlers in the history of the business, but his plans for a WrestleMania 32 match appeared to sabotage Sting’s debut against Triple H. He has competed against the best of the best as far as the world of professional wrestling. This includes someone like Chris Jericho, who has had several matches against The Great One. Roman Reigns vs The Rock major spoilers were also leaked previously.



During his appearance on the Talk is Jericho podcast, Dan Lambert recalled a touching moment when he made Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson cry by giving him an old title belt that The Rock had won during his time in USWA as Flex Kavana in the summer of 1996. The belt in question was the USWA Tag Team Championship, which The Rock had won twice with Bart Sawyer before signing with WWF and becoming the Intercontinental Champion in February 1997.

When The Rock visited Lambert’s gym to film some content for his reality show, Lambert surprised him by giving him the old belt. The gesture moved The Rock to tears, as it represented a significant moment in his early career. Lambert shared the heartwarming story on the podcast, illustrating the impact that a simple gift can have on someone’s life.

“I actually had the first title The Rock ever held for a while, which was the USWA Tag Title. And he came to our gym to film some reality show he was doing — MMA-related — and I actually gave him that belt. And he was like in tears getting that first belt. It meant that much to him.”
