7. The Rock Reveals Why He Didn’t Appear At WrestleMania 33
As we saw at WrestleMania 33 this year, there were no appearances from returning Old School Legends. Also, The Rock missed his first WrestleMania after making 6 consecutive appearances at The Show of Shows from 2011 to 2016.
During a recent interview with WSVN-TV, The Rock revealed why he missed WrestleMania 33 earlier this year and talked about how his improvisational skills from the WWF helped in making Rated R jokes in his movie Baywatch. Below are the highlights:
Why The Rock wasn’t at WrestleMania 33:
“No I didn’t get a chance to, I was shooting at that time. We were just wrapping up Ballers in LA so I didn’t get a chance to make it.”
Did his improvisational skills from WWE help him push the envelope on Baywatch?
“1000%. That was the fun part of this movie. We wanted to make sure that we nailed the tone we also wanted to make sure that we took advantage of the rated R platform. If you’ve seen the movie, there’s a lot of things that are very funny and they’re clearly rated R.”
