WARNING: This article contains mild spoilers for the May 3rd episode of Young Rock
Dwayne Johnson’s series Young Rockis in its second season of heightened reality and has been chronicling the star’s rise to fame as he runs for President of the United States in the year 2032. In the aftermath of his professional football career not panning out the way he’d planned, young Dwayne (or Dewey, as he’s known on the show) looks to join the family business and become a professional wrestler.
On the May 3rd episode, titled Corpus Christi, Dewey is finally going to have his first professional wrestling match. Taking place in Corpus Christi, TX, the future Rock found himself in a dark match facing off against Steve Lombardi, aka the Brooklyn Brawler.
Brian Gewirtz, who worked with The Rock in WWE and serves as one of the show’s primary writers, took to social media to hype up the episode and reveal that the part of the Brooklyn Brawler would be played by none other than AEW star Colt Cabana.
