Classic promo

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.

Sing-a-long

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 return

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.
