One of the greatest superstars in the history of WWE, Hall of Famer The Rock, announced his retirement from professional wrestling this week.
As The Rock bids adieu to the world of pro-wrestling, fans started paying tribute to his legacy in the industry.
With a number of legendary moments in his career, we take a look at the top moments in WWE.
Taming Erick Rowan in 6 seconds
The Rock is known to be the most Electrifying Man in WWE. In the same light, he has also had an electrifying fast match in WWE.
It happened at WrestleMania 32, in front of a record crowd of more than 1,00,000, as he challenged one of the members of The Wyatt Family.
As Erick Rowan accepted the challenge, Rock tamed him in six seconds.
The greatest captain of all time
Back during the Attitude Era, there was a moment in 2001 when Chairman Vince McMahon put his company on the line against his son Shane at Survivor Series.
In the Traditional Survivor Series Match, he chose The Rock as his captain.
In the end, it came down to him and Stone Cold Steve Austin.
However, The Rock showed great composure to defeat Austin.
The most classic promo to date
In 1999, King of the Ring Billy Gunn began a rivalry with The Rock.
It was during the Sunday Night Heat show where The Rock would decimate Gunn, not through his in-ring skills, but by cutting an epic promo.
From imitating Gunn to praying to God, Rock delivered the most classic promo, which to date remains one of the great ones of his career.
The greatest musical concert
Besides being a professional wrestler and an actor, he also has a sound musical talent.
However, he just kept it limited to the WWE ring, as he hosted a number of concerts, usually termed as "The Rock Concert".
As per the author, his favorite Rock Concert moment was in 2012 when he humiliated then SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero with his hard-hitting lyrics.
The in-ring return in 2011
It was in 2004 when The Rock had announced his retirement to focus on his Hollywood career.
However, in 2011 he briefly returned to WWE, and was announced as the host of WrestleMania 27.
He also went on to feud John Cena at WrestleMania over the next two years, as fans were enchanted by the return of The Great One.
