The Rock gets into Twitter war with former WWE superstar

Most WWE fights take place inside the squared circle with a referee and a crowd ready to see the good guy win. 

That wasn't the case last night, as Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Taz got into an argument on social media. 

The Rock announced a new show he was hosting on YouTube and it is safe to say that Taz wasn't too happy about it, ripping Rocky for stealing the exact premise that his radio show have been using for over a year.

Johnson will be debuting his “Rock The Promo” show on his official Youtube channel.

The idea of the show features fans sending in wrestling-style promos with wrestling personalities judging them in a 32-person bracket.

Taz has been doing the same thing since the beginning of his CBS Radio series “The Taz Show”, with callers providing “Wednesday Hump Day” promos that Taz would judge.

When he found out about the potential gimmick infringement, the Suplex Machine wasn't too happy about it, straight up calling out The Rock for his new show.

Johnson answered back, half trying to calm down the situation but half insulting Taz by saying he should've reached out to him in private like a real grown up before dropping the ultimate insult, saying he had no idea Taz even had a radio show.

And it ended as quickly as it began. While this won't end in a feud at WrestleMania next year, it was definitely fun while it happened.
