Recently on ESPN's Off The Top Rope, 'The Coach' Jonathan Coachman caught up with WWE SmackDown Live's Dean Ambrose and James Ellsworth. During the interview, 'The Coach' compared the duo known as James Dean to the legendary pairing of The Rock and Mankind as The Rock 'n' Sock Connection.

Apparently, Ambrose and Ellsworth had difficulty deciding which of the two would be The Rock in their team.

Ellsworth: "Well, [Coach] just compared us to The Rock 'n' Sock Connection. I guess I would be The Rock, right? And [Ambrose] would be Mick Foley." 

Ambrose: "[Ellsworth] hadn't been in any movies, right? You haven't been in a movie?" 

Ellsworth: "No, not yet."

Ambrose: "I would definitely be The Rock if one of us had to be The Rock. I'm taller and I would be, but then again, I am 'The King Of The Death Match,' so there. We'll get [Ellsworth] to the gym and get you a better haircut. Maybe [Ellsworth] could be The Rock. Get [Ellsworth] some cool sunglasses. I'm going to remember [Ellsworth] said that."
