• The Rock Says He Physically Attacked 2 Kids Who Called Wrestling “Fake”
In the latest episode of The Rock’s new NBC TV series ‘Young Rock’, it was suggested that The Great One used to knock out kids who called professional wrestling “fake” back in the day, a story that inspired journalist Jack Hunter to tweet the following:
“Teenage @TheRock knocking out a kid at school for calling wrestling “fake” just made my night. Because you know it happened. #YoungRock”

The Rock replied the following to him:
“Hi Jack, yup it sure did happen. Twice. I pile drived a kid in elementary. KO’d a kid in high school. Got suspended both times.
I was wrong. But back in the 80s I was taught by my dad and all the wrestlers to always “protect the business”. It’s what we we did. #YoungRock”
