WWE: The Rock reveals Chris Jericho was his most favorite WWE match

Published Add your comment

Dwyane 'The Rock' Johnson is a WWE legend and a sure fire Hall of Famer when he gets nominated.

If you were to create a Mount Rushmore of professional wrestling, you would be hard pushed to find a good reason to leave out The Rock, especially with Hulk Hogan's racism storm that came out recently.

Rocky has wrestled in hundreds of matches during his time in the WWE, but has now revealed which one out of all of them was his favorite.

Johnson recently took part in a Facebook Live Stream and talked about some of his most memorable wrestling moments and more.

Jericho in Hawaii

Included in that was what he considered to be his most favorite match from his entire career. His answer? A house match against Chris Jericho - which was never broadcast on TV - that took place in Hawaii.

"It was a live event," Rock said. "It was a house show. No cameras. No nothing. It was in, it was in Hawaii at the Blaisdell Center, which is Honolulu's big arena and I went there, I wrestled Chris Jericho."

"Hawaii was very special, so that match, that night, the crowd that came out. I wrestled with Chris Jericho - he was my chosen dance partner. I appreciate that. And here's a cool little thing: we sold out the Blaisdell [Center] faster than Elvis Presley."

The Rock went on to reveal that he loved Hawaii so much because it's where he spent a portion of his childhood, and it's where his grandparents struggled and worked damn hard to try and make something of themselves and the local wrestling promotion.
