WWE Star Drops The Rock Abuse Bombshell

The Rock is certainly one of the biggest names in pro wrestling. Many were envious of his talent and excellent mic skills. It seems that WWE Hall of Famer Road Dogg was one of them.



Road Dogg was jealous of The Rock

On the latest edition of the Oh… You Didn’t Know podcast, Road Dogg revealed that he used to be jealous of The Great One. The WWE legend added that he made it a point to keep Johnson’s “feet on the ground” by verbally abusing him.

“It felt very important to me to keep his feet on the ground. And I did so because I was jealous of him and I didn’t like him and boo on you. But look, he could cut a promo, he could wrestle, he looked great. He’s the total package on the reel. And I wasn’t that, and so I was very jealous of him. I’ve told him that and apologized since, but it still doesn’t take away the fact that I took it upon myself to keep his feet on the ground. And I did that with verbal abuse and potshots in the ring too.”

In addition to this, Road Dogg stated that it wasn’t his place to give ‘The Great One’ a hard time in the ring. He added that he would forever apologize to the former WWE Champion for treating him poorly.  Two-time WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart also once claimed that other DX members Triple H and Shawn Michaels used to bully Johnson. When a fan asked Chris Jericho to share his thoughts on Hart’s claim, the AEW star said it was true.

He said:

“As far as I know, that’s true, from what The Rock told me. That’s the reason why The Rock and Shawn Michaels never worked a match. I think Shawn might have insulted The Rock when he was a kid, in Hawaii.”
