WWE Recap: The Rock Returns and Electrifies Brooklyn
BK can smell what the Rock is Cooking.
The Champ is Here.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the former defensive tackle for the Miami Hurricanes, WWE champion, and now an A-list actor, made a surprise return to WWE’s Monday Night Raw last night in Brooklyn. The Rock’s millions and millions of fans lost their minds as he laid the smackdown on their candy asses.
Rock returned to confront current WWE superstars Rusev and Lana in the ring. Rock exchanged words with the Bulgarian Brute and his ravishing blonde manager. The Rock took a moment to compliment Lana’s beauty but then added, she walks around like she has “a Smirnoff bottle in her Putin.” Vintage takedown sir. Rock has said in multiple interviews that he considers the WWE home and will make impromptu appearances in the future. For one night, it was amazing to have him back.
The Main Event
Johnson has come a long way from his days as ‘Rocky Maivia.’ It’s one of the reasons why we considered ourselves one of his “millions and millions” of fans.
In 1992, as a member of ‘The U”, he won the national championship against Nebraska 22-0 in the Orange Bowl. He then transitioned to pro wrestling and debuted for the McMahons in 1996. The Rock went on the have one of the most storied and successful careers in WWE history. He’s a ten-time WWE World Champion and member of their Hall of Fame.
His transition to A-list actor has been equally impressive. By 2013, FORBES named ‘The Rock’ the top-grossing actor of the year, with his roles in Fast & Furious 6, G.I. Joe: Retaliation and two other films grossing $1.3 billion globally. He made FORBES list ‘The Celebrity 100,’ with estimated earnings of $46 million. In 2014, his earnings reached $52 million.
Thanks for coming back, Rocky. By the way, if you don’t follow the WWE, this is Lana, aka CJ Perry.
