The Rock Posts About 20-Year Anniversary Of Steve Austin Beer Truck Segment

The Rock On Steve Austin Beer Truck Anniversary, Vince Russo Criticism & More

Another big milestone took place on Friday, prompting Hollywood big-shot and future WWE Hall Of Famer Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to discuss some pro wrestling memories regarding “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Vince Russo.

Friday, March 22nd marked the 20-year anniversary of one of the most memorable moments in WWE RAW history — the infamous beer truck segment featuring Austin, The Rock, Vince McMahon and Shane McMahon.

The Rock posted on Twitter about the 20-year anniversary of the infamous WWE “Attitude Era” moment on Friday.

“My tough S.O.B. brother [Steve Austin] was operating here with a legit broken neck so we had to be creative with keeping our physicality to a minimum until our big WrestleMania match,” wrote The Rock in a tweet that included video of the beer truck segment. “The result was one of the most entertaining segments to ever take place on LIVE TV.”

From there, former Empire Of Soccer editor and noted pro wrestling fan David Martinez responded and brought up the fact that former WWE writer Vince Russo “catches a lot of crap,” but pointed out moments like the beer truck segment and many others “captured his imagination as a young fan.”

This led to The Rock also chiming in to defend Russo as well.

“Not sure why [Vince Russo] would catch crap over this,” wrote The Rock. “I had a great time working with that guy.”

The Rock continued, “I had some crazy out of the box ideas and never once did he bat an eyelash. He’d always say, ‘F*ck yeah, let’s do it!’ And we did. And we killed. Always fun!”
