Dwayne Johnson was infamous for the creative insults he used during his time on WWE TV as The Rock. However, one of those barbs might have gone a step too far.
Back in 2003, The Rock was embroiled in a feud with Steve Austin when he decided to hold his first ‘Rock Concert’. The Great One’s crooning was soon interrupted by Austin’s music a Stone Cold-branded pick-up truck made its way to the ring. However, instead of the Texas Rattlesnake, Shane Helms emerged as his superhero alter-ego, The Hurricane.
A relieved Rock laughed off the interruption, telling police he had brought with him to take away “the Hamburgler” because he was guilty of “seven Chicken McNuggets stuck up his ass”.
The segment recently re-emerged on social media, prompting Helms to joke that there was never any evidence of the McNuggets up his ass and demanding an apology.
“Honestly, I’ve dealt with this slander from @TheRock for far too long. It was never proven in a court of law that I had Chicken McNuggets up my ass.
“There was never any evidence other than some sweet and sour sauce in my locker room. I demand an apology!!”

After Helms was led off by the police, it turned out Steve Austin was indeed in the truck, hidden under a sheet in the back. The Bionic Redneck made his presence known by assaulting The Rock until he fled the ring.
Dwayne Johnson was originally set to headline WrestleMania 39
A new report has revealed that the rumours were true and The Rock was indeed originally meant to headline WrestleMania 39 where he would have challenged Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
The report in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that the current main event, Roman Reigns vs Cody Rhodes, was the backup plan in the event the dream match was unable to go ahead.
This has also had a knock-on effect on the rest of the card, as Rhodes would have been in the main event of night one, taking on Seth Rollins and Drew McIntyre in a Triple Threat Match for a second World Championship.
