In the course of the interview, the former WWE wrestler said: "It was The Rock himself who pushed for my victory against him.

This was basically his idea, I think there were people totally against it, they didn't want The Great One was defeated by me a few days before one of the most important matches of WrestleMania 19, the match between The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin.

Instead, he was totally in agreement with this thought and thought it would be a sensational thing, an episode that would shock the wrestling world (and in fact, he was right)."

His gift of gab eventually helped him become one of the biggest actors in all of Hollywood and a world-renowned celebrity.
