WWE Drama: The Rock Admitted He Almost Actually Whooped John Cena's Ass In Real Life


You don't talk sh*t about The Great One and not expect consequences.

In a recent interview with Muscle And Fitness, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson admitted comments made by John Cena back in 2012 were enough to make their rivalry real.

This isn't something that hasn't happened before in the sports entertainment industry, but whenever the lines are blurred between the WWE universe and actual reality, it's must-watch television.

But, just how real did things get for everyone backstage and around the two as the wrestlers geared up for their epic clash? According to The Rock, very uncomfortably real.

The two are, of course, good friends today and have since squashed their beef, but fans watching their rivalry between Wrestlemania 28 and Wrestlemania 29 witnessed some of the realest sports entertainment ever -- guys who actually hated each other!

Luckily, both men decided to not let their egos get the best of them and stuck to the script.

That doesn't take away from the fact that, according to Johnson, the two nearly came to blows both backstage and in the ring.

To put it best, The Rock was testing Cena and making sure he had what it took to be a champion.

The two were willing to push their WWE commitment to the next level by creating actual disdain for each other, and it paid off.
