Even after 25 years, The Rock continues to serve as a major influence for upcoming and current talent in the WWE.
In an interview with Sportskeeda Wrestling, Reggie, the current 24/7 Champion, talked about his best memory of The Rock. Initially, Reggie struggled as there were many great memories of The People’s Champion, but he eventually honed in on one.
He spoke about being a fan of The Rock’s skills on the mic and went on to mention a promo The Rock delivered on Kurt Angle, Undertaker, ‘Stone Cold’, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in the past.
“Oh my goodness, there’s so so many I mean I let me try to pull one. I mean I have always been a fan of The Rock’s promos and the promo he cut on Kurt Angle, Undertaker, Stone Cold, Triple H, Stephanie in the locker room,” said Reggie.
Reggie continued and mentioned how that moment specifically was so important for him and his own work on the mic.
“I mean that’s just like it takes me back to that moment, I mean that moment for sure is just a great moment for me, gave me the confidence to try to cut the best promos and say anything I wanted to say.”
The Rock was one of the entertaining superstars when it came to promos. It should come as no surprise that current superstars see him as an inspiration for their own promo game.
