Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been pretty busy these days. The once highest paid actor in Hollywood has been making his rounds, and can you smell what The Rock has been cooking? It’s beef! The former WWE wrestling champ opened up about his Fate of the Fast and Furious co-star, Vin Diesel, and their falling out. In a recent interview, when asked about the old feud, Johnson remarked “Fundamental differences in philosophies on how we approach moviemaking and collaborating. It took me some time, but I’m grateful for that clarity. Whether we work together again or not.” Though the response was civil, we’d lean towards the “or not” in that statement.
The beef is still cooking, but it smells fresher this time around. On a lighter note, Johnson made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where he left a note behind for his once WWE rival, John Cena, knowing Cena would be appearing on the show soon. Kimmel read the note to Cena which threated “He wanted me to remind you, ’If you ever act up,’ he said to you, ‘I will knock your teeth so far down your throat you’ll have to stick a toothbrush up your ass to brush them.’” Ouch! Cena had a few choice words of his own after telling Johnson through the screen, “I’m not going to take that!”
Johnson and Cena had a minor real-life feud when they were both stars in the WWE, but both have since confirmed they are really good friends now. All three of these guys are multi-millionaires, movie stars, and can knock you out, literally! So, while Johnson and Diesel may not be coming to a theater near you in a movie together any time soon, it’s cool to know Johnson and Cena have left their matches behind in the ring. You never know, there may even be a rematch in the future.
While the nostalgia kicks in, and we sit back and wait, you can check-out an old match between the two below.
