Jim Cornette On Why He Doesn’t See The Rock Admitting To Steroid Use

The Rock

Jim Cornette has explained why he thinks The Rock wouldn’t and shouldn’t admit to using steroids if allegations made about that were true.

UFC announcer Joe Rogan recently caused a stir on The Joe Rogan Experience when he suggested that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson should come clean about using steroids, despite having no evidence that Johnson does:

“The Rock should come clean right now. He should make a video in response to the ‘Liver King’ video. ‘I need to talk to you because The Rock’s been lying.’ There’s not a f*cking chance in hell he’s clean. Not a chance in hell. As big as The Rock is, at 50? He’s so massive and he’s so different than he was when he was 30.”

“There’s a responsibility you have to people who are listening to you. If you don’t want to talk about it, that’s one thing. But if you do talk about it, there’s a responsibility you have to people listening to you and I think you have to be honest about it, which is why I’m honest about it. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with taking hormone replacement.”

Now Jim Cornette has weighed in on the situation on his own Experience podcast as he suggests that even if The Rock did do steroids, it wouldn’t be wise for him to admit it:

“Then just every nitwit and moron out there, that’s all they will hear is The Rock does it so why shouldn’t I? It’s like with Mick Foley, well he took all those bumps, and they ignore the talent and the personality and the charisma, blah, blah, blah. All people want is if they already are predisposed to do something, or if they’re desperate to do something and don’t know how. And they thought, Oh, well, The Rock did it this way, so I’ll just do that.”

“So I can see why you wouldn’t [admit it]. Because, again, nobody has those genetics, nobody has that opportunity, nobody’s going to be the biggest movie star in the world. You’re just going to be some clown lifting weights in your garage, shooting monkey hormones up your ass, and ruining your health for no f*cking reward.”

“So I can see why he wouldn’t say Oh, well, it’s okay as long as you have the finest doctor and you’re an intelligent human being and you have a lifetime of knowledge of training and working out and people, you know, do it with you and design your programmes and a chef and take your meals with you everywhere and all that other stuff. And they’ll just hear the ah, I’ll do the steroids.”
