After Raw went off the air, The Rock made his way down to the ring as teased by ”The Great One” himself on Instagram earlier in the day.
Dwayne ”The Rock” Johnson hasn’t appeared in a WWE ring since WWE WrestleMania 32 in Dallas, TX where he defeated Eric Rowan in six seconds in an impromptu bout.
After TV cameras stopped rolling and the chaos was cleared from ringside, The Rock made his way down to the squared circle inside the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA.
Here are the twitter reactions in a chronological order:-
The People’s Champion played to the crowd for a short while as a production crew was setting up to film scenes for the upcoming movie “Fighting With My Family” which resonates around WWE Superstar Paige and her family.
The crowd started chanting CM Punk’s name, to which The Rock replied, “He’s not in this movie.”
He then shockingly, proceeded to call the Superstar Phil Brooks better known as CM Punk, whilst standing in the middle of a WWE Ring.
Tonight, The Rock and his Seven Bucks Films production studio were at Staples Center in Los Angeles in order to film one of the more important scenes from the film: Paige winning the WWE Divas’ Championship from AJ Lee.
Florence Pugh is portraying Paige in the film, with Tessa Blanchard as her stunt double. Thea Trinidad is portraying AJ Lee. Apparently, the “match” that they were filming was not very well received.
And then they apparently brought the stunt double for Florence Pugh in to re-film some aspects of the bout.
Fortunately, CM Punk did chime in and let Twitter know why he was unable or didn’t answer The Rock’s phone call:-
Thanks Los Angeles. Nice to hear from you. @STAPLESCenter
