WWE backstage interviewer Kayla Braxton recently took to her Instagram account and posted a picture with The Rock. Her caption read:
“Oh this? Just me and my coworker hangin out. Man – what an awesome surprise tonight in Denver. @therock never fails to show how much he loves this business, loves his fans, and respects all the superstars following in his footsteps. What. A. Guy.”
This week’s episode of SmackDown saw the return of The Rock in Denver, Colorado.
The edition saw the return of former SmackDown commentator Pat McAfee who kicked off the show. He was then interrupted by Austin Theory. The two were in the middle of a verbal smackdown when McAfee said that this was the people’s show. Then, The Rock’s music hit, and the legendary wrestler made his way to the ring.
The People’s Champion had a promo segment with Theory. The segment went on for a while. Battleground Wrestling Entertainment (BWE) on Twitter and several other outlets reported that some segments from the show had to be cut because the opening segment took longer than expected.
The Rock had a great time during the show. He even got the audience to chant, “You are an a**hole” at the 26-year-old star. The Brahma Bull made jokes at Theory’s expense and then ended up hitting him with a spinebuster, followed by The People’s Elbow. McAfee also got in on the action and hit Theory with his own version of The People’s Elbow.
