The Rock Marks the 25th Anniversary of His Professional Wrestling Debut
On Wednesday, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson marked the 25th anniversary of his WWE in-ring debut.
On Nov. 10, the 10-time world champion competed for the first time.
On August 17, 1996, Rock teamed up with Jake Roberts, Marc Mero, and The Stalker to defeat Crush, Goldust, Jerry Lawler, and Hunter Hearst Helmsley (later known as Triple H, one of Rock’s greatest rivals) at the Survivor Series pay-per-view.
“Wow 25yrs ago I wrestled my first match in @wwe in Madison Square Garden,” Johnson wrote in response to a photo from the event.
I’m currently shooking my head.
What a tumultuous, unpredictably winding road I’ve been on.
I owe a debt of gratitude to a slew of people who helped me along the way.
Fans, in particular.
I really like you guys.
This journey has humbled me.
What the hell is going on with my dreadful haircut?”
WWE is expected to commemorate the occasion at this Sunday’s Survivor Series event in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
Johnson is expected to make an appearance at the show, but this has yet to be confirmed.
Wow, 25 years ago, in Madison Square Garden, I wrestled my first match in the @wwe.
Right now, I’m shaking my head.
What a tumultuous and unpredictable journey I’ve been on.
There have been so many people to thank along the way.
Especially the spectators.
I adore you guys.
This trip has humbled me.
What’s the deal with my dreadful haircut?https://t.co/IdHu4SyyDn
In response to rumors that Johnson will return to WrestleMania for another match in the near future, “The People’s Champ” recently spoke with ComicBook.
“I don’t know if I have another title run, considering I’m the People’s Champion,” Johnson said. “I think there might be another match down the road.”
“It had to be logical.”
“It seems like Roman, you know, I’m very close with Roman obviously, and we talk about this all the time, and I continue to encourage him to keep doing your thing, keep sharpening those skills,” he said.
He’s doing a fantastic job with his promo, execution, and in-ring work, in my opinion.
Everything is getting better and better.
And the best part about professional wrestling, in my opinion, is that when someone is anointed and given the ball to run with, they either score a touchdown or they don’t.
Some, on the other hand, do more than just score touchdowns…
