The Rock Had Massive Words Of Praise For Samoa Joe, Bayley And Others

Recently, The Rock stopped by WWE Raw. Not to appear on television, but to film scenes for a movie he’s executive producing (and to give CM Punk a phone call). He caught up with a lot of old friends, and interacted with other wrestlers for the first time. He also gave us a prime bit of perspective when it comes to Universal Champion Kevin Owens.

Over the weekend, the Rock took to Instagram to post some mark photos he took with some of his favorite WWE performers, and to gush and gush about how much he loves them and how far they’ll all go (in his estimation).

He began with Bayley, talking about the respect he has for her, especially considering how much harder the wrestling life is for a woman. He also offered some very helpful advice on how to deal with his old nemesis (and Bayley’s mentor), Triple H.

He then moved on to Samoa Joe, a man whose entire career he says he’s followed. He said he’s confident that we will one day refer to Joe as WWE world champ. It’s certainly hard to get a higher endorsement than that from a figure as notable as the Rock.

Hard, unless you’re Charlotte Flair, who Dwayne says has “greatest of all time” potential. Dang, Rock. Why don’t you hand out a compliment sometime, you stingy jerk?

And of course, we could have expected all along that Rock would have some words of praise for Enzo Amore, a man who might as well have been crafted from Attitude Era Rock’s own rib.

Sadly, Rock seems to have inadvertenty tagged him and Enzo as a cup of haters. Or maybe Enzo’s shirt is doing that. Is the Enzo and Cass “cuppa haters” shirt meant to infer the reader of the shirt is the aforementioned cuppa haters? I think I need to go lie down. Good job cutting it into a belly shirt though, Enzo. You don’t want to be caught wearing a shirt that just comes standard.

Anyway, it’s good to know that one of the most popular and successful wrestlers of all time believes that the future of WWE is filled with immensely talented performers. Now about that three-hour Raw running time …
