Chris Van Vliet Speaks About The Rock Interview Being His Favorite

“It’s The Rock for me,” Van Vliet stated.

“I was a huge Rock fan growing up. I was always a wrestling fan but became a massive wrestling fan during the Attitude Era. It’s The Rock. I dressed up as The Rock for Halloween one year. I would ask people in my high school questions just so I could simply shout, ‘It doesn’t matter what you think’ at them.

“I was a huge Rock fan, and he was at the top of my bucket list for years, and years, and years. I was doing all kinds of different celebrity interviews. It wasn’t ’til I was seven years into my career that I finally did get an interview with The Rock, and they always say you shouldn’t interview heroes, you shouldn’t meet your heroes.

But man, if your hero’s The Rock, you should do whatever you can to meet him. He’s great. He’s everything you want him to be and more”. According to Chris, Becky Lynch or Roman Reigns can follow in The Rock’s footsteps and also become huge Hollywood stars.

The Rock is one of the few wrestlers that successfully transitioned into a full-time Hollywood career quite easily. “I was having a discussion about this with someone recently, and what’s interesting, when we think about people who have really broken out into Hollywood, there’s the three names that always come up, it’s Rock, it’s Batista and it’s John Cena, and what’s interesting about all three of those people is they completely left wrestling behind to kind of forge this new path for themselves,” Chris Van Vliet explained.

“So I don’t think that if you really want to make it in Hollywood, I don’t think you can be an active wrestler. “I think you have to say, alright, what I’ve done in the ring is my career. That’s that.

I’m now starting this new career in Hollywood. So I think if it’s Becky or I think if it’s Roman, they’re gonna start to put in the work now with those guest spots, and we’ve seen that. Roman’s been in a few things.

I think, though, that if they really want to take it seriously, they have to dive all the way in, and I love the phrase that says ‘if you chase two rabbits, you’ll catch none,’ and I think that that’s really true.

I don’t think that you can be uber-successful like The Rock has been or like John Cena is now getting sure if you’re dipping your toe in both worlds”.
