Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson took to Twitter today, responding to a question on the official WWE on FOX Twitter account asking who the “G.O.A.T.” is between himself and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. He said his pick was “Downtown Bruno”.
Downtown Bruno, who was played by Harvey Wippleman in WWE, worked as Bruno in Memphis from 1986 through the rest of the late 80s where he was the company’s most prominent heel manager. He also worked the Continental Wrestling Federation. He won their US Junior Heavyweight Championship in September of 1989. The Rock noted that Austin is a “close second.”
In wrestling? Easy answer; when I was 15 (broke & evicted) this man let me live with him in Nashville 🙏🏾
Most don’t know who Bruno is but a few do.
My brother @steveaustinBSR comes in a very close 2nd 🤣
Cheers to life’s wild and unpredictable journey 🍻#goat https://t.co/quc12kXqys
