• The Godfather On Why The Rock Refused To Travel With Him
Old School WWF Legend The Godfather, whom many fans also remember as Papa Shango & Kama Mustafa, recently appeared on the Such Good Shoot podcast, where he talked about his World Wrestling Federation days and shared a couple of traveling stories from that time.
It appears that fellow WWF Legend Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, who is currently the #1 actor in Hollywood, refused to continue to travel with him or anyone else, who would smoke marijuana in the car.
Here’s what the 2016 WWE Hall of Famer had to say:
“One day Rocky came to me and said, ‘Hey, Papa, I can’t ride with you no more’. I’m like, ‘What do you mean you can’t ride with me no f**king more?’
He goes, ‘Bruh, everywhere I go I smell like weed and I’m telling people I don’t smell like weed. And then the next time they see me, they say every time I see you you say you don’t smell like weed, but you smell like weed’.
As soon as I got in the car, bro, as soon as I got in the f**king car, I’m firing up [smoking] all the way to the building, you know.
And so, bro, I’m not gonna stop smoking, so that’s when I started riding with Ron [Simmons] and John [Bradshaw Layfield], The Acolytes, and then him [The Rock], D’Lo and Mark Henry started riding together.”
