The Rock took to his Instagram account today to reflect on the anniversary of his match with Brock Lesnar at WWE SummerSlam in 2002.

This marked Lesnar’s first WWE Title win as The Rock went away to focus on his acting career. The Rock wrote the following:

“20 years ago this week, we made history in New York and pro wrestling was never the same again 🔥💀🔥

The Rock vs Brock Lesnar
WWE UNDISPUTED CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH

I always had great chemistry with Brock as he was one of the greatest pure athletes I’ve ever danced with.

We spent about 6 months wrestling around the world together, grooming Brock to become @WWE Heavyweight Champion.

It culminated to this historic SUMMER SLAM PPV where the crowd was absolutely electric.

Historic for two reasons:

#1) In wrestling terms, I “did the honors” of having Brock beat me right in the middle of the ring, 1-2-3.
Brock is new champion.
Brock is new face of WWE.

#2) My contract was up in WWE and I quietly – and GRATEFULLY – retired as a full time pro wrestler after an incredible (and insanely short) 6 year career.

It’s so wildly incomprehensible at times when I think back – that I only wrestled for 6 YEARS.

How crazy is that irony?

A 6 YEAR CAREER 🤯

What a journey.

I did return to wrestling from 2011 to 2013 as it was my way of giving back to the business that was so good to me + I just f’n love wrestling”
