The Rock Confirms He Knocked Out A Kid In High School Who Said Wrestling Was Fake


During last night’s episode of ‘Young Rock’ on NBC, the teenage version of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was shown knocking out one of his high-school classmates after they called wrestling ‘fake’. When a fan questioned if this really happened, The Rock responded and said it did. He said,

“Hi Jack, yup it sure did happen. Twice. I pile drived a kid in elementary. KO’d a kid in high school. Got suspended both times. I was wrong. But back in the 80s I was taught by my dad and all the wrestlers to always “protect the business”. It’s what we we did.”

He continued, “There was a harsh/seedy underbelly to pro wrestling for decades and decades. It was what it was and you did your best to keep your head on a swivel in those shark infested waters.”
