Triple H spoke with TMZ Sports about how The Rock came up with his famous signature move, “The People’s Elbow.” It turns out that it all came about to make The Undertaker laugh during matches back in The Attitude Era.
“There would be these tag man and six-man matches,” Triple H began. “And we’d spend a lot of time in that match, me, [Steve] Austin, The Rock, and [Mick] Foley, too, trying to make Undertaker break character. Trying to do whatever we could make him to crack or laugh, and he just never did.
“Just the goofiest stuff ya can do, sometimes, depending on where we were, obviously. I believe the first time Rock did ‘The People’s Elbow’ was in a match where we were trying to make Taker crack. It absolutely started that way and then everybody went with it.”
