• WWF Veteran Recalls Babysitting The Rock & Giving Him Beers
During a recent interview with The Hannibal TV, Old School WWF Veteran Brian Knobbs talked about babysitting The Rock.
Below is what Knobbs said:
“We would babysit Duey, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. When his father and his mother wanted to go out on dinner dates, they trusted us to have Dwayne stay down there.
We fed him a couple of beers now and then, and he still says something about that to this day. At the 2005 Hall of Fame he said to my mom, ‘Did you know your son used to give me beers when I was 12 and 13?’
I went, ‘You know what, it must’ve did you some good since you’re making 100s of millions per year. How about a kickback?’
Dwayne was one of the greatest guys and the family brought him up the right way. It’s all about respect.”
