The Rock Talks Wrestlers Lobbying To Have Him Removed From WrestleMania XV Main Event, Steve Austin

On Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's recent Facebook Live Stream, the former WWE Champion talked about other professional wrestlers wanting to squash his WrestleMania 15 main event match against 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin.

"What makes that [match] so special was because it was my first WrestleMania as Heavyweight Champion and there were so many dudes in the locker room who were trying to squash that main event," Rock said. "It was like a long ass line that formed to Vince McMahon's office where all the top guys, many of them, were trying to stop that main event. 'Rock has no business being in the main event', 'he's a young kid', 'he's a rookie', 'he has no business being in it', but Vince had wanted that main event and one dude, the only dude, by the way, who could say 'yes' or 'no' to it, was Steve Austin and that cat went to them, the old man, Vince, and came to me, and he was like, 'I want you to be [my] partner. You're my partner – you're my dancing partner in this thing.'

"I appreciated that so much and just in that moment, we created just this great bond of trust and we went on to headline three other WrestleManias. We went on to break records. We went on to break every attendance record, every arena record across the United States. It was amazing and it was a hell of a run."

The Rock called Austin a "good man " and a "very good friend". On Austin putting his name on the line for the Rock, the Rock concluded, "I'll never forget it. I appreciate that, Steve."

In addition to talking about memorable professional wrestling matches, the Rock provided workout and diet tips. To watch the video in its entirety, click here.
