3-time Emmy winner Chris Van Vliet caught up with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on his Furious 7 press tour and being a wrestling fan, Van Vliet asked the former WWE champion a couple of interesting questions.
Talking about Furious 7 and the Rock Bottom through the glass table, Rock said that it was not in the script and it was something that they added. The Rock said that it was a bit tricky to present it to another movie star, especially since egos are involved, but Jason Statham was a pro and was all up for a Rock Bottom. “It’s the best move of the movie,” Rock said.
The discussion turned to Roman Reigns, and the host asked if his cousin is ready to headline WrestleMania and to be the champ. Rock said headlining WrestleMania and ready to be the champion are two different things. He said he’s in a great position and he was pushed quickly and he has no choice but to be ready. “They’re gonna put one hell of a match,” he said.
Then the talk gets even more interesting. Van Vliet asks the Rock if he’s sad he’s not part of WrestleMania and Johnson starts laughing. He said he’s hosting SNL on Saturday the night before, and that’s in New York, and WrestleMania is in the Bay Area.
“What are you doing on Sunday?” the host asked. Johnson laughed some more and said, “Don’t you worry about it!”
When talking about WrestleMania 32 and the rumors of Rock vs Brock in Dallas, Johnson said, “Possibly. THere’s a lot of things that are up in the air.” He said that he would love to have a rematch with Lesnar and create something that’s going to be special, especially at Dallas in that stadium with a chance to break the all-time WrestleMania attendance record.
