“I’m 2-0 against The Rock,” Henry told me.
“I think I should give him the opportunity to get one, get a chip against me. I think if I were to come out of retirement and fight someone I would be like, “Hey man. You’re still fighting, eh? You know you’ve never beaten me. Doesn’t that bother you a bit? You should want to get that “chip …” and see what it says. He said: “Your ass going down this time!” You might as well just go on and watch the lights! I should watch the lights.

In a 2016 interview with the Scoop B Radio podcast, Ken Shamrock shared that The Rock made him a better wrestler. “His mic skills, the way he played his character, I learned a little bit from him in that area working with him,” Shamrock told me.
“It was a huge talent. You see it now in the movies. He was definitely one of those gems. I was able to work a program with him for about a year and it was precious moments. You get such opportunities, you have to learn. You have to catch things from these people. I don’t care how good you get at anything you will always learn You should always try to learn. I was really lucky to have these opportunities. The Rock was definitely one of my highlights to be able to work with him in the ring and learn from him.
