Both The Rock and former WWE Champion Big E have recently spoken on their battles with depression.
The Rock would speak with E! last week to promote the second season of ‘Young Rock’. When promoting the season, The Rock told the site how the second season will touch on his battles with depression at the end of his football career. The Rock would tell the site the following:
“The most touching feedback that I consistently received has been our openness to talk about mental health, it was something that I was unfamiliar with when I had my first bout with depression at the end of 1990. I didn’t know what it was. I just felt like, ‘Man, I feel like s*it. I don’t want to do anything.’
“I grew up an only child, and a dude. Dudes have a tendency to hold this stuff in. And you know, it’s not in our nature to just talk about it because it makes us feel vulnerable. We don’t want to feel vulnerable. It makes us feel weak, we shouldn’t feel weak. We should have our s*it together. But that’s not life.
“I can’t speak for all dudes, but for me, when you’re in your 20s you’re still a baby, still a kid. When you’re in your 30s, you’re still trying to figure stuff out. If you get lucky, maybe you’ll figure stuff out in your 40s. So, me and my daughter Simone, we grew up together.”
Big E would also comment on his own fight against depression on his Twitter page. Re-tweeting a video of Ohio State football player Harry Miller explaining his choice to step away from football to focus on his mental health. The WWE SmackDown Superstar wrote the following:
“In my early 20s, I wanted to be famous so that when I committed suicide, someone would care. I never thought I could be free of the shear weight of my depression but here I am—alive and truly happy. Proud of you, @h_miller76.”
