Dave Bautista launches astonishing attack on The Rock and John Cena

BatistaWWE legend turned Hollywood star Dave Bautista has fired shots at The Rock by claiming the icon is not a good actor.

 

The 51-year-old has followed the likes of the Great One and John Cena into the movie business after quitting the ring.

After a sticky start, Bautista was widely-praised for his performance in Guardians of the Galaxy with fans now looking forward to seeing his latest film Dune.

Cena is also enjoying big success on the silverscreen.

But both he and Bautista still have some way to go to reach the heights of The Rock, who was the highest-paid Hollywood actor last year.

However, Bautista has revealed he does not think either Rock or Cena are good actors.

Dwayne The Rock Johnson WWE legend

Speaking to the Tampa Bay Times, he said: “[The Rock and John Cena] are wrestlers who became movie stars.

“I’m … something else. I was a wrestler. Now, I’m an actor.”

Bautista, who returned for his retirement match at WrestleMania 35 in 2019 against Triple H, continued: “[The] Rock was, in a way, a movie star before he was even a movie star.

John Cena vs AJ Styles

“There is something about him that’s really special. I’d never take that away from him.

“Would I consider him a great actor? F*** no.” Explaining his reasoning, Bautista added:”I want good roles. I don’t care about Fast and Furious or Bumblebee. That’s not the kind of stardom I want.

Dwayne The Rock Johnson legend

“I want to be in Dune, I want to work with Denis Villeneuve.

“I want to work with Sam Mendes and Jodie Foster, I want to work with Academy Award winners.

“I’m proud to be a character actor. I want that respect and credibility and education.”

Chris Jericho and Bret Hart say that Shawn Michaels & Triple H bullied The Rock

Bret Hart and Chris JerichoChris Jericho recently confirmed Bret Hart’s comments stating that HBK insulted The Rock. Hart earlier claimed that The Rock was bullied by HBK & HHH.

 

On the latest episode of ‘Confessions of The Hitman’, wrestling legend Bret Hart claimed that Shawn Michaels and Triple H bullied Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson after the WWE icon joined the company in the late 90s.

Chris Jericho, Shawn Michaels and the Rock

Bret Hart’s comments received mixed reactions from fans as some claimed that The Hitman is telling the truth, while others brandished him a liar.

Former WWE and AEW champion Chris Jericho also chimed in on those words as he confirmed Bret Hart’s statements while answering a fan’s question on his Saturday Night Special.

“As far as I know, that’s true, from what The Rock told me. That’s the reason why The Rock and Shawn Michaels never worked a match. I think Shawn might have insulted The Rock when he was a kid, in Hawaii,” said Chris Jericho.

Chris Jericho WWE AEWBret Hart recalls the time Shawn Michaels slammed The Rock

During the latest Confessions of The Hitman episode, Bret Hart remembered the time Shawn Michaels slammed The Rock in front of everyone in the locker room.

Bret Hart said that one day in the locker room, Shawn Michaels “chewed” The Rock down for delivering a top rope dropkick during a match, which was HBK’s speciality. Bret Hart claimed that The Rock apologised to Shawn Michaels multiple times before HBK left the locker room.

Bret HartHowever, many superstars would use the move at the time. Bret Hart claimed that Shawn Michaels and Triple H were jealous of The Rock and that’s why they used to “work him” for the smallest of reasons.

He said he’s glad that The Rock made a name for himself and went on to choose a path that he loves (acting).

“I remember the door closed after Shawn left and I said, ‘that’s bulls–t. That’s total bulls–t.’ I said, ‘nobody owns the dropkick off the top.

You can do that. Owen does it all the time! Why doesn’t he cut a promo on Owen?’ I said, ‘they’re just busting your chops and they’re trying to work on you.'”

What’s next for Chris Jericho?

Bret Hart and Chris Jericho

Chris Jericho is currently in a feud with Orange Cassidy and the two have faced each other twice in the AEW ring. Chris Jericho won the first bout, while Orange Cassidy won the second.

According to reports, Le Champion will continue his feud with Cassidy and the two could face each other in an upcoming PPV.

We don’t think we’ve ever felt so many emotions during a match 😅

Ronda Rousey & The Rock & 9 Other Pairs Of Wrestlers To Appear In The Same Movie

Ronda Rousey Gets Called OutThe Rock and Ronda Rousey are not the only ones to show talent in the ring and on the big screen. The following movies feature multiple wrestlers.

 

Wrestlers like The Rock, Ronda Rousey, Batista, and John Cena have shown that special talents can thrive in two completely different worlds like professional wrestling and acting. The concept of wrestlers appearing in movies is no longer strange, but it is highly unlikely when multiple wrestlers appear in the same movie outside of the WWE Studios films.

Any movie to feature two or more wrestlers will likely stand out to the average wrestling fan looking to find something fun to watch. The casting is often intentional, but there are times where multiple wrestlers just did the best in their auditions for the roles. Find out which films are worth going out of your way to watch as a diehard fan. The following movies feature multiple wrestlers on the cast.

The Rock and Ronda Rousey (Furious 7)

Ronda Rousey and The Rock

WrestleMania 31 wasn’t the only time The Rock and Ronda Rousey worked together in an entertaining fashion. Both former WWE stars were part of Furious 7 in the Fast and the Furious franchise with a loaded cast.

The Rock joined the franchise in Fast Five and has been an important part of the movies since then. Rousey was the new addition as she entered the acting industry shortly after her MMA career ended. The movie was a massive success as the franchise continued to thrive.

9 Shane McMahon and Paul Heyman (Rollerball)

 

The film Rollerball was very much a product of the early 2000s. LL Cool J, Chris Klein, and Rebecca Romjin-Stamos starred in the movie based on an extreme sport with a darker backstory behind the scenes.

Both Shane McMahon and Paul Heyman had roles in Rollerball leading to WWE promoting it on television. Heyman played a commentator calling the games much like his WWE role at the time. Shane’s cameo only lasted a few seconds, but he was shown enough to provide an appearance for the wrestling fans.

8 Chris Jericho, Big Show, MVP, Kane, Mark Henry and Khali (MacGruber)

Chris Jericho, Big Show, MVP, Kane, Mark Henry and Khali

MacGruber received its own movie on the big screen after finding success as a popular Saturday Night Live skit. There were quite a few appearances from multiple WWE stars in the film to give wrestling fans a reason to watch it.

Chris Jericho, MVP, Big Show, Kane, Mark Henry, and The Great Khali all had roles in the movie and were used in the promo photos. The era of Monday Night Raw celebrity guest hosts saw Will Forte appear in character on Raw to sell the movie.

7 Santa with Muscles (Hulk Hogan and Ed Leslie)

Hulk Hogan and Ed Leslie

Ed Leslie made a career out of being Hulk Hogan’s best friend with contracts in WWE and WCW based on it. Hogan was able to get Leslie even more opportunities outside of the wrestling business with one of his movies.

Santa with Muscles was one of the multiple movies meant to get momentum for Hogan’s career. Leslie was given a small role as a lab assistant solely due to Hulk’s influence and desire to help out his best friend again.

6 The Rock, Zelina Vega and Tessa Blanchard (Fighting with My Family)

Tessa Blanchard

The Rock took a big risk in developing a movie based on Paige’s life and family titled Fighting with My Family. Paige’s journey in the wrestling industry with her fascinating wrestling family and the move to WWE is the story, played out with some exaggerations.

Rock wanted to give some love to the wrestling industry by casting current WWE star Zelina Vega to play AJ Lee in the big match scene. Tessa Blanchard had a role as a stunt double for Florence Pugh, but she is clearly visible in the match. Rock even made an appearance in the movie to add some more star power.

5 The Rock and Roman Reigns (Hobbs & Shaw)

The Rock and Roman Reigns

Roman Reigns received his first relevant acting role in the Hobbs & Shaw movie during his time away from the ring. The film was made as a spin-off of the Fast and Furious franchise with The Rock and Jason Statham reprising their roles.

Rock and Roman’s real relation as cousins made the movie roles even more fascinating as they played siblings. The role of Reigns didn’t place him in many scenes, but it gave him a great introduction to the movie world if he ever wants to make that jump.

4 Steve Austin, Goldberg, Kevin Nash and The Great Khali (The Longest Yard)

Steve Austin, Goldberg, Kevin Nash and The Great Khali

Adam Sandler often loves working with athletes in his movies. Wrestlers were a huge part of The Longest Yard remake with a star-studded cast of names like Sandler, Chris Rock, Bert Reynolds, and many others.

Steve Austin, Kevin Nash, Goldberg, and The Great Khali all had roles in the movie for the football game that takes place. Sandler loved the work of Austin enough to have him return for a new role in the Grown-Ups franchise.

3 Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler (Man on the Moon)

Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler

Jim Carrey pulled off one of his best acting performances playing the role of Andy Kaufman in Man on the Moon with the wrestling chapter of Kaufman’s career represented. The infamous feud with Jerry Lawler saw Lawler playing himself in the scenes.

Lawler’s WWE commentary partner Jim Ross received a role in the movie playing a commentator for the Kaufman vs Lawler scenes. Both talents referenced Carrey staying in character on set and frustrating them.

2 Batista and Rob Van Dam (Wrong Side of Town)

Batista and Rob Van Dam

One of the funniest instances of multiple wrestlers appearing in the same movie saw Rob Van Dam and Batista appearing in the straight to DVD movie titled Wrong Side of Town. The director loved wrestling and cast them both along with other celebrities like Ja Rule and Omarion.

RVD was the star of the movie, but the movie poster and DVD cover art showed Batista with a bigger picture. Most people likely thought Batista was the star until realizing he was only in a handful of scenes.

1 The Rock and Great Khali (Get Smart)

The Rock and Great Khali

Wrestling was represented in the 2008 summer blockbuster film Get Smart starring Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway. The Rock joined them as the third lead actor in one of his biggest acting roles at that point.

A bigger surprise saw The Great Khali making an appearance as well using his size for a few funny battles. WWE didn’t hype up Khali’s appearance much despite Get Smart being one of the biggest movies for an active talent on the roster.

WATCH: When “Stone Cold” Steve Austin dressed up as a Nurse to attack Vince McMahon

Stone Cold Steve Austin dressed up as a Nurse to attack Vince McMahonThe Attitude Era was one of the best times to be a WWE fan. The segments, promos, matches, and Superstars were at their very best. The centers of this era were “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, The Rock, and Vince McMahon.

 

Stone Cold had been elevated to the status of a legend and was the main attraction for thousands of fans. His rebellious acts of sticking it to the boss earned him the appeal of thousands of fans who wished to oppose the hierarchy in their own lives.

“The Rattlesnake” often used his own quirky ways of attacking Vince McMahon and went to extreme lengths to do so. I would like to call it back on one segment on Raw when he dressed up as a Doctor to get to an injured McMahon in the hospital.

Stone Cold didn’t give Vince McMahon the chance to react
Stone Cold didn’t give Vince McMahon the chance to react

Vince McMahon had injured his ankle a week before that episode and was still in the hospital for some reason. Frustrated with the nurse, he kept demanding his release from the hospital.

He probably reached his breaking point when he was visited by Mick Foley who brought Mr.Socko with him. He was now determined to get out.

Later in the day, the nurse was testing him for a final time, and everything was normal, much to McMahon’s arrogant guesses. The nurse then asked the doctor for his final check-up, and a gruff voice replied, “Oh, I’ll take it from here Nurse.”
Stone Cold didn’t give Vince McMahon the chance to react.

Vince McMahon realized that voice immediately but before he could move, Austin was on him

Vince McMahon realized that voice immediately but before he could move, Austin was on him, landing punch after punch on a helpless Mr. McMahon who cried for help.

The Nurse ran out of the room, an Austin turned his attention to the injured leg of McMahon and began punching that as well. McMahon writhed in pain but he couldn’t even move! He just had to bare it.

If this wasn’t enough, Stone Cold smacked Vince McMahon in the head with a bedpan! This came off with a distinct “Clank!” that threw fans on the floor with laughter.

Steve Austin Stone Cold and Vince McMahon sick

Stone Cold then picked up the defibrillator to his side and Vince McMahon could only wait for it all to be over. The sudden shock made McMahon instantly flip over and off the bed.

This segment is a perfect example of just how good the Attitude Era got. This one, in particular, was hilarious and still is funny to watch to this day. Imagine being Vince McMahon and the last thing you see before passing out is Stone Cold in a surgical outfit. Yikes!

WWE NEWS: ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin Responds To Return Question After Edge Comeback… Issues advice to Edge

edge and stone cold actingWWE legend ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin has responded to question on a potential in-ring return following Edge’s recent comeback. The Rated-R Superstar returned at the Royal Rumble on Sunday night, despite being forced into retirement due to a neck injury in 2011.

 

Austin retired in similar circumstances in 2003 but admitted on his podcast that Edge’s return hasn’t made him hanker for a return.

WWE legend ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin has shut the door on a potential in-ring return – despite Edge’s recent comeback.

Speaking on ‘The Steve Austin Show’, the ‘Texas Rattlesnake’ said:

“Basically you’re asking me, based on Edge’s return, would I consider making a return? No.

Edge shouted

“Whatever Edge is doing has nothing to do with me,” he replied. “I’m done. I’ve already said I’m done.”

Austin’s career came to an end at Wrestlemania 19 following defeat to longtime rival The Rock.

He was only 38 at the time of his in-ring departure, but ‘The Bionic Redneck’ has come to terms with his retirement.

“When I see a guy whose kinda had a similar type of neck situation as I had, or neck surgery in general, and to leave the business when he did nine years ago and then come back, I’m like ‘Ok. Man, be careful out there.’ Ya know?

EDGE and Stone Cold smile

“Cause I haven’t seen you in action. And we know it’s a very physical business. You can get hurt any time, any way. It can be very dangerous. So just please be careful.”

Edge’s return set WWE fan’s hearts racing on Sunday night when he emerged as number 21 in the Royal Rumble.

He eliminated stars such as AJ Styles and Randy Orton before being tossed out by Roman Reigns.

Edge tweeted

He’s reportedly signed a three year deal worth up to $3 million for five matches in 2020.

The WWE Hall of Famer appeared on Monday Night Raw this week and claimed he returned so he could ‘leave on his own terms’.

The Canada native is expected to make an appearance at this year’s Wrestlemania, in a match against former ‘Rated RKO’ tag team partner Orton.

An appearance in Saudi Arabia next month is also tipped, as well as this year’s Summerslam event in August.

Who else do you think Edge will face in his WWE comeback run?

Stone Cold Steve Austin discusses why he refused to lose to Brock Lesnar in 2002

Brock Lesnar and Steve AustinChris Jericho once threw a mic to the floor after finishing a promo. When he got backstage, WWE chairman Vince McMahon said “what the hell do you think you’re doing? Those are expensive!” Jericho replied: “Steve Austin does it all the time,” setting up McMahon to reply: “Yes, but you’re not Stone Cold Steve Austin.”

 

And Chris Jericho is going to go down as one of the all-time greats who did just about everything you can do is the wrestling business.

And yet, he is still not on Stone Cold Steve Austin’s level. You could only say The Rock really even flirted with that level.

The Rock reveals Stone Cold Steve Austin at WrestleMania

Sure, Hulk Hogan was a huge draw in the 1980s and Ric Flair is one of the greatest champions the business has ever seen, but Steve Austin was the biggest star pro wrestling has seen from a box office perspective. There’s no questioning that.

In the mid-late ’90s, the Texas Rattlesnake took wrestling to a whole new level as the Attitude Era boom that was ushered in on his shoulders make wrestling cool again.

By 2002, the neck injury he suffered at the hands of Owen Hart in 1997 and the subsequent surgery he had to try and correct it in 1999 was catching up with the aptly named Bionic Redneck.

Austin, still only in his late 30s, could not keep up with the frenetic pace of being WWE’s top guy and knew his body was winding down.

The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin

Also in 2002, the night after WrestleMania where Austin defeated Scott Hall, a young stud named Brock Lesnar debuted.

It was evident from the first time he entered the arena with Paul Heyman in tow, he was going to be a big deal if he wasn’t already.

After only two months on the main roster, Lesnar entered the King of the Ring tournament – which he won – and Vince McMahon had the idea of having Lesnar defeat him in a qualifying match-up.

When the WWE boss tasked Jim Ross with informing Austin this was the plan for Raw the next day, Austin simply told them he wasn’t coming.

“And the time they wanted me to fly down to Atlanta for Monday Night Raw and put over Brock Lesnar,” Austin told Sport Bible.

Stone Cold talks The Undertaker career

“The night before, I was working in Columbus, Georgia, working with Ric Flair in a cage, so I was like a kid in a candy store working with the GOAT, so of course I didn’t show up.

“Because it wasn’t time for me to do the favours yet for Brock in an unadvertised match in a tournament-style TV match whereas hey, man, I love Brock Lesnar, I’d lose to him any day of the week, but build it up so we can all make money off of it and it’s going to mean something.

“And when you get a guy red hot, and I just had [Hulk] Hogan on the podcast, and I’ll put myself there, but when you get guys who really, really draw stupid money, it’s a very delicate balance that you just don’t take stupid liberties with or you’ll kill it off and you can never recreate it.

“So I was very protective of myself, maybe too much so, but it took me seven and a half years to get there, so no-one was going to yank the carpet out from underneath my feet, not even Vince [McMahon].”

Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Undertaker

Austin had sold out arenas for live events over a four year period like no one had before him. Without him, WWE may have never defeated WCW in the Monday Night Wars.

He wasn’t just a ‘top guy’ like a fan might label whoever the current champion is, he was a generation defining talent. He had sold-out live shows, drawn record TV ratings and brought in record pay-per-view buys. As he says, he’s not the kind of talent – whether he’s in the winter of his career or not – that you just farm out.

As Bruce Prichard discussed on his podcast, Austin felt like Vince was short-changing his worth because he had a shiny new toy in Lesnar.

The Rock and Steve Austin GOAT

“That was the whole b***h behind the entire match. There were those of us who wanted to build to it and build to an eventual Austin/Lesnar angle and getting money out of that match. So we wanted to go there – Vince didn’t want to go there yet,” said Prichard.

“[Vince] just wanted to get that one match done and move forward. But let Steve go off with Eddie [Guerrero] and continue to build Brock. So it was… there were two camps. There were those who wanted that match, and then Vince that didn’t.”

The result saw Steve Austin no-show RAW with McMahon – and even The Rock – burying the Texas Rattlesnake on live TV.

Austin left the company in the middle of June 2002 and did not agree to return until early 2003. Prichard said nobody was happy backstage – even mentioning The Undertaker – but he said Lesnar didn’t really react.

“The Undertaker was pissed off. I think everybody was just pissed off and upset cause, you know. They felt like he walked out on them.”

“Brock had no idea of the proposed match or that he was supposed to go over Steve or anything. So, I don’t know if Brock had any reaction whatsoever because it never got to that point with him. They had pitched Steve, and Vince was still going back and forth with Steve at that point.

“I’m sure Paul probably let Brock know what the proposed match was, but no I don’t think Brock was anywhere in a point of; I don’t wanna say not caring one way or another but, it wasn’t to that point for it to matter.”

In 2015, Lesnar, who himself took a hiatus from WWE in 2004 and returned in 2012, did a sit-down interview with Stone Cold on the WWE Network.

Of course, that fateful day in 2002 came up, but the Beast Incarnate explained he never really cared.

“I didn’t care. Not at all,” Lesnar affirmed. “You haven’t got to explain it to me, I wasn’t offended. You may have handled it the wrong way, but maybe somebody on the other side could have handled it better too. It’s a two-way street.”

They say you have to pick your hill to die on and Austin chose this one. In truth, Austin only had three more matches after this fiasco and two of them were against Eric Bischoff where he took next to no bumps. His final match would be with The Rock at WrestleMania 19, a match he nearly didn’t make because of his health.

So logic tells us Austin was on his way out anyway and, deep inside, he knew it. While that may be true, the points he was making about building to a Lesnar match and making money off of it are true as well.

Ultimately, the match that never was didn’t hurt either man, but it’s interesting to imagine what it would have done for them both at that time. The closest we ever got was Steve Austin refereeing Brock Lesnar versus Goldberg at WrestleMaina 20.
