Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson became the most electrifying man in sports entertainment but it didn’t come easy for him as there were a few people backstage who tried their very best to halt his rise in WWE.
During WWE Network’s new ‘Meeting The Undertaker’ special, The Rock explained how the Deadman stood in his corner when certain people tried to squash his momentum at the time he was being positioned for a WWE Championship run.
“This is stuff I’ve never shared but I do want to share it because it’s important. When I started to make the move [up the card] and word started to get around that the office was priming me for a WWE Championship run, there were a handful of guys in the business at the time who did everything they could to stop that run from happening.”
“He was always so steady, telling me, ‘Don’t worry about it, kid. Just go out and keep doing your thing. You have a hell of a future.’”
Vince McMahon deliberately left a loophole in The Last Ride docuseries in case WWE is forced to bring The Undertaker back in the ring at some point in the future.
