• The Rock Wants To Get Drunk Or High With Legendary UFC Commentator
Legendary UFC color-commentator Joe Rogan bashed the sport of professional wrestling in 2014 by saying the following:
“Wrestling was some weird, f**king jerk-off thing that strange guys do when they sit in front of the TV and pretend that they don’t know it’s fake.”
However, he later ended up relativizing that quote by claiming he just made a joke and never actually hated pro-wrestling.
On his podcast, Joe said the following regarding professional wrestling being ‘fake’:
“It’s definitely scripted. It’s not like they’re risking it all because they don’t know what the outcome is gonna be. It’s different than an actual athletic event, but it’s still pretty badass as far as what they’re able to do.
They don’t nearly get enough credit for it either. While they were doing it, before the lockdown, they were doing it 250+ days a year traveling all over the country, throwing each other on tables.”
Rogan continued to talk about pro wrestling, by posting the following on Instagram recently:
“These @wwe documentaries on A&E right now are really well done. Maybe I’m really high, but I think I now am beginning to truly understand pro wrestling.”
The Rock commented the following under this post:
“At one time, it was the best job in the world. One day we’ll get drunk (or high) and talk about it. Or talk about it first then get f**ked up 😂 🥃 ”
