The Rock Shares Strong Opinion On The Peak Of WCW

The Rock on WWE Raw

The Rock didn’t wrestle for WCW, but he did make some interesting comments about the company when it was at its peak.

World Championship Wrestling died in March 2001 when they were purchased by World Wrestling Entertainment (then known as the World Wrestling Federation). Even though he never worked for WCW, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson became the WCW World Champion five months after the company died.

At SummerSlam 2001, The Rock defeated Booker T to become the second-last WCW World Champion. Chris Jericho beat The Rock in controversial fashion in December 2001 and Jericho was the last WCW World Champion.

Vice TV just finished airing the four-part “Who Killed WCW?” documentary that was produced in part by The Rock’s Seven Bucks Production company.

During the documentary, The Rock gave his perspective on a lot of things because he was a rising star and then a main event player. While Rock was making his way up the WWE roster as a rising star in his 20s, WCW went head to head with WWE from 1995 to 2001 as Nitro battled Raw.

In the fourth part of the “Who Killed WCW?” documentary, The Rock shared some advice he received from Downtown Bruno, who WWE fans will know as Harvey Wippleman. While sharing that advice, Rock also praised the WCW product during its peak years.

“A good buddy of mine. He’s one of my best friends, Downtown Bruno, when I first started, I said, ‘Bruno give me some advice.’ He said, ‘You’re going to hear a voice one day, and that voice is going to say, ‘Go on home. The big run’s over.’ WCW, as an entity, they heard that voice and the big run was over, and it was f**king awesome.”

The Rock Will Be Featured In Upcoming WWE Documentary

A commercial aired during WWE Raw this week that revealed the highly-anticipated documentary called “WrestleMania XL: Behind the Curtain” will premiere on WWE’s YouTube channel on Wednesday, July 3rd.

It’s going to feature key WWE people like Triple H, The Rock, Cody Rhodes, Roman Reigns, and others as they take us behind the scenes to reveal what it was like setting up this year’s WrestleMania event that had plenty of twists and turns.
