The Rock Pitches Dream Match With AEW Tag Team

Dwayne Johnson

WWE Legend and Hollywood icon The Rock pitched a dream tag team match with an AEW tag team, and even named the perfect special guest referee!

Matt Hardy recently took to social media to praise the wrestling acumen of Shane “Hurricane” Helms, who he faced 20 years ago on September 19, 2002 on an episode of SmackDown. Helms is currently working as a backstage producer in WWE.

“In all seriousness, @ShaneHelmsCom is one of the best wrestlers EVAH. People who get to pick his brain & sit under his learning tree as a producer are lucky, he’s a wrestling genius.”

When one fan on social media pointed out the the Hurricane is 1-0 against The Rock, Hardy responded and said that he loved the interactions between the two.

“YO, @TQR317, no lies detected! Rock’s record is 0-1 versus The Hurricane & I absolutely loved their interactions. Dwayne Johnson has been cool as hell since Day 1 & Shane Helms is one of my best friends in the world. I love The Hurricane – It was/is brilliant!”

In response, The Rock wholeheartedly backed up the endorsement of Hurricane Helms, and pitched a tag team match between himself and Hurricane against Matt and Jeff Hardy. He also proposed that the special guest referee for the bout should be Cham Pain, otherwise known as Marty Garner, a wrestler who made a number of appearances in WWF throughout the 1990’s and 2000’s and now serves as PA to The Rock.

“My boys!! I co sign what Matt said! Hurricane is the best. Let’s have a tag match for the titles. Me & Shane vs you & Jeff. Special guest referee… first name, Cham…last name, Pain.”

Matt Hardy agreed with The Rock’s proposal, and seems to want to get the match booked.

“YEAASSSSS, LFG! I love some Chiz Piz @marty_garner & we’re definitely ready to #BookThatShit, biggest star in the wiz!”

Of course, many fans are clamoring for The Rock to return to the ring against his family member Roman Reigns, whose championship reign in WWE stands well over 700 days. Reigns recently addressed his relationship with The Rock, and according to recent reports, the match between the two is still on the books for WrestleMania 39 if the Hollywood star’s busy schedule allows it.
