Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a pro wrestling fan. Pure and simple. This was proven to be fact once again on Wednesday afternoon when the former WWE legend turned Hollywood A-list mega-star chimed in on social media to give his review of the debut episode of the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) “POWERRR” live YouTube show.
“Congrats Jim, the boys, crew etc. Stumbled across this show last night and enjoyed it,” wrote The Rock via his official Twitter page in response to a tweet by fellow pro wrestling legend Jim Cornette. “I grew up in territories and started my career at channel 5 in Memphis so I have a lot of love/respect for small scale, crowd tv shows.”
The Great One concluded, “Cool vintage feel. Keep ew
working hard boys.”
This would, of course, lead to a response from Cornette. The legendary pro wrestling personality took to his Twitter page to respond to The Rock’s reply to his original tweet.
“Rocky, thank you so much for taking the time to check it out,” wrote Cornette in reaction to The Rock’s comments above. “I’m sure I speak for [David Lagana] and [Billy Corgan] in offering you two tickets ABSOLUTELY FREE to the next taping!”
Cornette added, “If you have more than 2 guests I’ll sneak one in the back for you!”
