On Friday, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson took to Twitter to comment on the current build to Wrestlemania XV. He also addressed the “beer bath” segment from Albany, NY celebrating its 20th anniversary on Friday.
According to The Rock, Austin was dealing with a broken neck at the time so they had to work around that in the build to WrestleMania and that’s the reason they did the beer truck segment. He also commented on working for Vince Russo, which you can see below:
My tough SOB brother @steveaustinBSR was operating here with a legit broken neck so we had to be creative with keeping our physicality to a minimum until our big WrestlemMania match.
The result was one of the most entertaining segments to ever take place on LIVE TV. 🍻🔥 https://t.co/oiSdm0MIOI
Not sure why @THEVinceRusso would catch crap over this. I had a great time working with that guy. I had some crazy out of box ideas and never once did he bat an eyelash. He’d always say, “fuck yeah let’s do it”. And we did. And we killed. Always fun!
Thanks for the kind words, Rock. They mean more to me than you will ever know. Keep killin’ it, Bro!!!
