The Rock has taken to Instagram to call Chris Jericho “one of the all-time greats” as he recalls the pair’s clashes around the globe.
The Great One would throw back to 19 years ago, reminiscing about his victory over The Demo God to become eight-time WWE Champion. The People’s Champion would also thank Jericho, while claiming the pair wrestled in two unforgettable matches – one in Japan and one in Hawaii.
“Cool wrestling history on this day in 2001 ✊🏾
“Chris and I had phenomenal matches all around the world (including one electrifying night in JAPAN 🇯🇵 and one unforgettable night in HAWAII ❤️). Thank you for “the honors”, my brother.
“Proudly cut my teeth and made my bones in the wild world of pro wrestling – learned some great, invaluable lessons I apply today for success in my business.
Meanwhile, in an exclusive interview with Inside The Ropes, WWE Hall of Famer Diamond Dallas Page would say The Rock AND Chris Jericho are the two hardest working human beings in the world.
“I put The Rock as the hardest working human being in the world, because he’s working on so many things.
“Number two, I’d put Chris Jericho. Wrestler, rockstar, podcast icon – he’s in the top echelon of that – gameshow host, actor. I mean, what the f*** doesn’t he do?
“And he’s constantly recreating himself. Constantly. I love the dude. It’s like, “What’s he going to do next?” And at some point, I’m sure he may change again, but I’m sure he’s got a really long run in what he’s doing right now. I think that this might be his last one, but you can’t say that. “
