11 Candy Asses Who Have Felt the Wrath of The Rock
Dwayne Johnson is never afraid to lay the smackdown on anyone's candy ass.
That much was made clear when he called out Vin Diesel (although not by name) for the actor's inappropriate and pompous behavior on the set of Fast 8.
Some fans were taken aback by Johnson's harsh words, but they really shouldn't have been.
Previously known as The Rock during his WWE days, Johnson has been at the center of many feuds over the years.
Here's a rundown of the most memorable back-and-forths:
1. Vin Diesel
This marks Johnson’s first real feud since he became an actor. Those on the set of Fast 8 confirm that Johnson was nothing but professional during filming while Diesel walked around with an arrogant attitude, often showing up late to set. Johnson called him out on it.
2. Ken Shamrock
The Rock and Ken Shamrock debuted in the WWE during the Attitude Era, feuding early on over the Intercontinental belt. Shamrock finally defeated Rock in the 1998 King of the Ring finals.
3. Degeneration X
As a member of the Nation of Domination (as Rocky Maivia), The Rock ousted Faarooq as the leader and began a feud with DX. Triple H and Rock then participated in one of the most brutal ladder matches of all time.
4. The Big Show
The Rock started his feud with Big Show at Royal Rumble 2000 when they were the final two competitors. There was controversy over the ending, which led to these two doing battle against at No Way Out. Eventually, the pay-off was a four way for the title at Wrestlemania.
5. The Undertaker
These two feuded numerous times. It all started when Johnson was exiled from the Corporation and it culminated in 2002 when The Rock beat Undertake and Kurt Angle in a three way at WWE Vengeance.
6. Booker T
Booker T was the WCW Champion when he started using the Book End (Rock Bottom, basically) as his Finishing Move. At Summerslam, The Rock beat Booker after a Rock Bottom to win the WCW Championship. Booker would receive a rematch in a form of a handicap match (teaming with Shane McMahon) at Unforgiven 2001.
