It was undoubtedly one of the most memorable moments of WWE episodes. The Rock was back in the company for the September 15 segment of SmackDown. Dwayne Johnson was back on his home turf. It was a pleasant surprise for fans at the opening segment in Denver for the Friday show and ran into longtime rival John Cena.
Even as Austin Theory and Pac McAfee engaged in a ringside conversation, Johnson showed up at the show. He received a thundering ovation. The Rock and John Cena then proceeded to put their long-term rivalry behind them and engage in a bout of friendship. They have shown their friendship in a video that has now gone viral.
The video was posted by the official account of the WWE on Twitter, now renamed X after Elon Musk took over this year. The two champion wrestlers had a pleasant surprise in store for fans as they caught up with one another during SmackDown night at WWE at Denver’s Ball Arena.
The Rock And Cena Just Hug Out Their WWE Rivalry
The actors returned to where it all began, their wrestling roots, and squashed their beef from a long time ago at the event. Will all current Hollywood projects be in the freezer due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike, it was a moment of fun for movie fans at the event. The two hulks had some unexpected free time to return to their roots. The Rock was interviewed backstage by Pat McAfee, the internet and talk show personality. The Rock comes from a pro wrestler’s family and was a huge WWE star before the transition to Tinsel Town.
The Rock was ending his conversation with McAfee when Cena entered to thunderous applause. Once longtime foes on the stage had left their fighting days behind there would not be any showdowns this time around. They both shook hands and hugged. Their old hatchet was buried for good after all these years. It was a reunion that fans had never imagined would happen.
