The Rock is one of the biggest names when it comes to pro wrestling. The wrestler-turned-actor has been a fan favorite and had a legendary career in WWE. He famously used the ‘People’s Elbow’ as his signature, which remains to be one of the iconic moves in pro wrestling. Now, he has seemingly allowed a UFC star to use a version of the move.
The Rock sends a message to Molly McCann
McCann showcased a great performance at UFC Fight Night: Blaydes vs. Aspinall. She landed a brutal spinning back elbow on her opponent and then went on to score a TKO victory. It was the 32-year-old’s second win in a row with a spinning back elbow. ‘Meatball’ later uploaded a tweet asking Johnson’s permission to continue using his iconic move, ‘The People’s Elbow’.’
The Rock’ took note of it and replied to the UFC flyweight, telling her to keep using the ‘DEVASTATING People’s Meatbow’.
From the ELECTRIFYING People’s Elbow to the DEVASTATING People’s Meatbow 💪🏾💪🏻 Its all yours!
Keep kicking ass and having FUN, champ! 👏🏾
