Steroids have been back in the news in recent days after comments made by Joe Rogan about Hollywood megastar Dwayne Johnson.
Speaking on his podcast, Rogan claimed that there was no way, the star wasn’t using steroids, urging him to come clean, and to stop lying to his fans. Kevin Nash has since come out in support of Johnson, while giving an insight into potential treatments he may be receiving from doctors.
Jim Cornette Discussed Dwayne Johnson Allegations
During an recent episode of his podcast The Jim Cornette Experience, the legendary manager commented on what would happen if Johnson ever admitted to using steroids. Cornette surmised the fans would see the performance enhancers as a fast-track to success, ignoring all of the hard work that the star puts in.
[Asked what if The Rock did do steroids] “Because then just every nitwit and moron out there, that’s all they will hear is The Rock does it so why shouldn’t I? It’s like with Mick Foley, well he took all those bumps, and they ignore the talent and the personality and the charisma, blah, blah, blah.
All it people want is if they already are predisposed to do something, or if they’re desperate to do something and don’t know how. And they thought, Oh, well, The Rock did it this way, so I’ll just do that. So I can see why you wouldn’t to [admit it]. Because, again, nobody has those genetics, nobody has that opportunity, nobody’s going to be the biggest movie star in the world. You’re just going to be some clown lifting weights in your garage, shooting monkey hormones up your ass and ruining your health for no f*cking reward.
So I can see why he wouldn’t say Oh, well, it’s okay as long as you have the finest doctor and you’re an intelligent human being and you have a lifetime of knowledge of training and working out and people, you know, do it with you and design your programmes and a chef and take your meals with you everywhere and all that other stuff. And they’ll just hear the ah, I’ll do the steroids.”
It has long been rumoured that Dwayne Johnson will be returning to WWE to face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39. While there has been no official confirmation regarding a potential match, it has been reported that there is a mid-January deadline for any plans to be finalised.
