Dwayne Johnson a.ka. The Rock delivered an iconic behind-the-scenes promo 20 years ago. This promo took place in preparation for the six-player Hell in a Cell match at Armageddon.
The Rock is one of the biggest draws in the wrestling world. One of the main reasons behind this was his impeccable skills on the mic.
The Brahma Bull had the ability to put their opponents out of play even before the start of the match.
The Rock debuted in 1996 as the ring name Rocky Maivia, a combination of his grandfather’s and father’s ring names.
In just one year, he won the Intercontinental Championship. From there, the most electrifying man was doomed to success.
The prediction didn’t turn out to be wrong as it resulted in multiple world title reigns, a victory royale, and iconic WrestleMania moments.
At the turn of the century in December, The Rock found themselves in a six-player Hell in a Cell match at Armageddon.
The Rock took on Kurt Angle, Triple H, Rikishi, The Undertaker, and Stone Cold for the WWF Championship.

The chances of seeing The People’s Champ in a WWE ring are unlikely.
Dwayne Johnson is currently a prominent Hollywood celebrity. It has four films coming up in 2021 in different capacities.
It will also be part of a web series in 2021.
Johnson is currently the highest-paid actor in the world according to the Forbes list of 2019.
However, he still makes sporadic appearances in WWE.
The Great One made their long-awaited return in February 2011 as guest host of WrestleMania 27.
Since his return, he has had a unique rivalry with John Cena and defeated him at WrestleMania 28.
He also won the WWE title after many years, beating CM Punk in 2013. He ended up losing it to John Cena at Wrestlemania 29.
Since then he has only made guest appearances in WWE and has not been seen in any intense matches or rivalries.
The Rock officially announced his retirement from professional wrestling on August 3, 2019.
