Harvey Wippleman – ‘Young Rock Isn’t Over Yet, Stay Tuned’



Young Rock, the NBC series detailing the life of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, isn’t over yet, according to the Brahma Bull’s longtime friend Harvey Wippleman.

In June of this year, it was announced that the show was not going to be renewed, ending the series with three seasons.

Appearing on a recent edition of the “Developmentally Speaking” podcast, Wippleman suggested that the show will return at the right time. He said,

“To me, the biggest highlight of the last whatever amount of years was being a main part of the ‘Young Rock’ show on NBC. I was one of the two executive consultants for the wrestling aspect of the show. I was part of the Memphis Wrestling consultant team, and also part of the Zoom meetings teaching Ryan Pinkston, who plays me on ‘Young Rock’, my accent and just showing him how I talk and behave and whatnot. Of course, a great friend of mine, Chavo Guerrero, was the casting director for the wrestlers in the show and also the physical consultant, shaking the actors how to take a bump or whatever.”

He continued, “The young wrestlers that were portraying other people, he would explain to them what to do. So me and Chavo were two the two wrestling people on that particular show. It was a great experience, and it’s not over yet. It’s not on NBC anymore, but once the actors’ strike resolves, stay tuned. ‘Young Rock’ will be back. The story ain’t over yet.”

Young Rock saw modern-day wrestlers portray stars of the past including Grayson Waller as Ric Flair and Colt Cabana as the Brooklyn Brawler.
