Victoria Comments On The Rock Saying He Was “Awful In Promos” During OVW Days


Lisa Marie Varon (WWE’s Victoria) spoke about Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson today on the “Grown Ass Women” podcast, telling listeners that Johnson told her that he was “awful” in cutting promos during his time with OVW. She said,

“I was at OVW and I went backstage, I don’t know what the hell I was doing backstage,” Varon recalled. “They kept bringing me back and forth. I didn’t know whether to call him Dwayne or Rock. He came up to me and was like, ‘Are you Victoria? I heard a lot about how you’re working at OVW and how we’re excited about having you come up.’ I go, ‘I really need to work on my promos.’ He goes, ‘I was awful at promos.’ This is coming from a guy who is great on the mic. He says, ‘You’ll get better and better. I was terrible at the beginning.’ I was trying to act normal and cool. He says, ‘Welcome aboard, welcome to the company.’ He walked away and I was like, ‘Holy shit, oh my God. That’s The Rock.’ He’s one of the nicest guys in the business.”
