Kevin Nash has responded to some recent accusations from Joe Rogan, who wanted The Rock to admit that he uses steroids to stay in great shape.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of the most famous people on the planet and at 50 years old, he looks like he’s in better shape than he was at any point in his life. That’s not to say The Rock was out of shape before, but he’s certainly more muscular now compared to twenty years ago when he was a regular in WWE. Sometimes that can lead to criticism like from a popular podcaster and comedian named Joe Rogan.
It was last week when Rogan said this about The Rock needing to “come clean” about steroid usage:
“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.”
Kevin Nash is a two-time WWE Hall of Famer and a former WWE Champion (just like The Rock) and he also worked with The Rock during the end of Rock’s original run in WWE.
During the latest episode of Nash’s Kliq This podcast, “Big Sexy” Kevin Nash talked about his own while mentioning his experience with steroids.
“Rogan’s latest thing is that he’s came out after Dwayne [Johnson], saying that… The Rock is saying that he doesn’t use PEDs and Rogan is telling [everyone] that it’s bullsh*t and [he is] on PEDs. I just wanna make this point, and this is my point and it’s my opinion. Performance Enhancing Drugs are just that. They enhance your performance. Testosterone replacement therapy brings you back the hormonal levels that you [had] in your mid 30’s.”
“I am on testosterone replacement therapy. If you take my blood, my testosterone level will probably be dependent on how far from my injection between 780 and 1000. Somewhere in between there. The sweet spot is about 850 for me. I also have my free Testosterone, which will probably be around 18. I have to take a [anti-estrogen] because if not, my estrogen will go through the roof. I weigh the same every f*cking day, I’m in no way stronger, no way faster, nothing to do with performance except my blood lipid panel is amazing for my age, especially for my genetic pre-dip disposition.:
“My HDL, which is your good cholesterol, last time was 42. [That’s] nothing to brag about, but it’s above 40. My LDL, which is your bad cholesterol, is 55. Total cholesterol was less than 100. Triglycerides was less than 66. C-reactive protein, which is the inflammation that’s throughout your body and into your heart and veins, was like 0.7. I’m very beyond low risk, but all of those things only happened after I started to do testosterone replacement. Yes, I am leaner than I was, but I’m nowhere like I was when I was taking steroids, when I was trying to f*cking look like Master Blaster Steel.”
As Kevin Nash continued, he said that The Rock is likely taking what doctors tell him to take.
“Dwayne is 50. If he’s taking anything, it’s done by a doctor. He’s getting either Cypionate or Enanthate, it depends. Cypionate is closer to your regular testosterone, your natural testosterone, but the Enanthate lasts longer. Yeah, I mean Dwayne looks great but…”
Nash would go on to say that instead of bashing somebody like Rogan did, he should be crediting The Rock for the discipline that he has.
“Somebody like Dwayne… number one he’s very disciplined, but he’s also very wealthy. So I don’t think that Dwayne is getting up in the morning and as he gets the crust out of his eyes at 4 AM, is deciding if he’s gonna scramble egg whites. I mean, he gets up, takes an ice cold shower, probably does 20 minutes of cardio with nothing in his stomach except coffee and then has his pre-workout and goes in there and trains a body part.”
“I watch him, he doesn’t train super heavy, but strict super sets with constant tension on the muscles. [He] knows what he’s doing. [He’s] in his own zone, gets out of there, and the rest of the day, he’s eating optimally. He’s not missing meals, he’s not missing macros.”
“To look the way he does all the time, instead of f*cking bashing somebody, just tip your hat to their discipline.”
