In the first of a new web series entitled ‘The Rock Reacts’, movie star ex-wrestler Dwayne Johnson watches back his first ever professional wrestling match and talks us through it. In hilarious style. The Rock tells us all about that night and drops in a few gags and wry observations, especially about his wacky haircut (“I’ve got a f**king Chia Pet on my head as a haircut!”).
“I had no idea what the finish of this match was going to be until maybe an hour before the match,” Johnson says at one point. “So we set it up where, ultimately, the final three competitors were two bad guys against one good guy, and that was me.”
“22,000 people in Madison Square Garden, they looked at the two bad guys, they looked at the new rookie and in that moment, 22,000 people can either go, ‘S**t! He’s gonna get his ass kicked!’ Or they go, ‘S**t! He’s gonna get his ass kicked, but you know what? We like that dude, and we want him to kick ass too.'”
This is great stuff. We can’t wait for the next installment…
