WWE: The Rock made to look tiny next to huge 7 ft 9 inch basketball star

Published Add your comment

Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, stands at 6 ft 5 inches tall and weighs in at around the 260 pound mark. His imposing stature has helped him reach the summit of the WWE and make millions as an action hero in Hollywood.

He is a bonafide A-list celebrity who usually dwarves any mere mortal he comes in contact with.

That was until today when he met Chinese basketball star Sun Mingming - a man who stands at a staggering 7 foot 9 inches tall and manages to make the WWE superstar look like a child standing next to his dad for a family photo.

Chance meeting

It is not clear as to how the two giants came into contact, or why there is photo evidence of it, but judging by The Rock's previous tweets on his official account it looks like he is out in China at present as part of his movie commitments.

Regardless we are glad someone was there to capture the moment - if only to see Johnson do his best to make himself look big despite his obvious height disadvantage.

Now all we need is a video of that mini golf game The Rock mentions in the tweet he sent out today.

A big talent

Mingming, like Johnson, has appeared in a number of movies over recent years and, like his WWE counterpart, continues to juggle the movie business with what made him famous in the first place.

Having once had a try out with the Los Angeles Lakers way back in 2004, the Chinese player spent time playing in the US for a number of lower league teams before returning to his native country in 2008 where he now turns out for the Beijing Ducks.

Johnson meanwhile continues to combine his Hollywood success with a part-time role in the WWE.

Just a couple of week ago The Rock made a shock return to the ring as part of a Monday Night Raw show and it is believed that he will be back again for a huge WrestleMania showdown with Triple H.

Having found a new acquaintance since then in Sun Mingming perhaps he could rope in the help of the Chinese basketball star if he is looking for a tag team partner.
