The Rock Names “Most Athletically Gifted Big Man To Ever Wrestle”

The Rock

The Rock has named The Undertaker as the “most athletically gifted big man to ever wrestle” – calling his fellow legend “an absolute beast in the ring” and saying it was an “honour” to get his ass kicked by The Deadman.

Responding to a joke where Undertaker called him a “C-lister” while speaking with Robbie Fox of Barstool Sports, The Great one praised The Deadman for his great sense of humour before calling him “the most athletically gifted big man” to wrestle

“Hahaha one of the many reasons I love my big brother, Take. Great sense of humor. Absolute beast in the ring and the most athletically gifted big man to ever wrestle and grace our squared circle. An honor to get my ass kicked by him over the years#CList4L”

Undertaker was speaking about whether he ever had any personal aspirations of transcending wrestling and becoming an actor, but he declined and joked that “the jury is still out” on whether The Rock made the correct decision in switching the squared circle for the silver screen.

“My mindset was like, ‘I’m living my dream here!’ so I didn’t have aspirations of going to Hollywood […] nothing against guys who do – jury’s still out on whether it worked for The Rock or not. He’s a C-lister.”

Just last month, Undertaker endorsed The Rock running for President, saying The People’s Champion could “unify America” in his reasoning.

“That man works his tail off and he dives in wholeheartedly in everything that he does and if he gets his mindset that he wants to make a run at politics, ya know what? I think he’ll do it.”

Taker joked that he’d still be calling his friend “Jabroni” – even if he did end up in the most powerful position in the United States of America.

“I think people would still call him Rock, I don’t know. I would hope I would have that clout that I can get away with calling him Rock, or Jabroni.”
