WWE fans come from all countries and all walks of life, many times, they are sports stars if not sports entertainers.

The latest sports star to reveal himself as a WWE fan is Giannis Antetokounmpo of the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks.

In a recent press conference Antetokounmpo said that he would love to have a chance to workout with The Rock. He also stated that, he would “bring it” to the Rock if the two ever locked up.

Antetokounmpo stresses that he is a big fan of The Rock so he’s probably delighted that his comments came to the attention of The Great One Himself.

The Rock has sent out a Tweet addressing Anetokoumpo’s comments. In his Tweet, The Rock praises both Antetokoumpo and his team, the Milwaukee Bucks. He does, however, put the NBA player in his place, threatening to “slap the lips off” of him if they ever did tangle in the ring.

The Rock softens the blow by then saying that he would love to take up Antetokounmpo up on the offer of a workout – and he would love it if the two could enjoy some tequila together afterwards.

Antetokounmpo is also known as The Greek Freak, a reference on his athleticism as well as the country where he was born. He began his NBA career in 2013 and has been playing for the Milwaukee Bucks ever since.  He is a candidate to be the Most Valuable Player of this NBA Season.
