The Rock knows a things or two about what it takes to make a star in WWE, and it seems as though he has three current SmackDown Live stars on his radar.
"The Great One" began his professional wrestling training back in 1995 and was signed to the WWE just a year later. He won the Intercontinental Championship and soon aligned himself with factions such as The Nation Of Domination and The Corporation. He's one of the youngest WWE Champions in promotion history and really began to break out into premiere superstardom in the professional wrestling world towards the late 90s. His stint with the company as a full time talent ended around 2004 when he departed to Hollywood to pursue his acting career.
He made sporadic appearances on WWE TV up until 2009 and laid out the groundwork for a brief full time return around 2011. Rock then began a feud with John Cena that lasted over two years, seeing each man pick up a victory over the other in WrestleMania competition.
While Rock's last WWE match is considered to have been against John Cena at WrestleMania 29, he actually competed in an impromptu match against Wyatt Family Member Eric Rowan, who he defeated in just six seconds with a Rock Bottom - the fastest win in WrestleMania history. He is now the highest-grossing actor in Hollywood and is one of the most famous people on the planet.
Currently, on the show names after The Rock, "SmackDown," Jinder Mahal reigns as the top star of the brand wielding the WWE Championship. Alongside him is none other than The Singh Brothers who have been assisting him in winning his matches.
After a recent exchange between The Rock and The Singh Brothers on Twitter, it seems as thought "The Great One" is a fan of the trio:
For someone like Mahal and The Singh Brothers to get such high praise for someone with the calibre of The Rock is truly a great accomplishment. While fans are pretty mixed on how they feel about the new WWE Champion, it's nice to know one of the biggest future Hall of Famers in WWE history is backing him.
