Dinner with the King Recap – John Cena Passes the Torch, The Rock’s Arrival in Memphis, Climbing His Way to the Top of WWE, More!

[adace-ad id="652493"]

Lawler says that just because you’re ‘The Guy’ in WWE, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re the locker room leader. When you reach the level of someone like John Cena or Brock Lesnar, you have your own personal bus and you don’t dress with the other talents in the locker room. For this reason, the ‘top guys’ occasionally become disconnected from the other talents.

Lawler and Moore get into their discussion of The Rock.

Lawler says he would have liked to get former WWE writer Brian Gewirtz on the show today, because Gewirtz worked very closely with The Rock during the attitude era. Gewirtz worked with Rock to develop most of his now famous promos, and he has since accepted a job with The Rock’s ‘Seven Bucks Productions’.

He mentions that when The Rock showed up to work in Memphis many years ago he was flat broke, and he lived with Harvey Wippleman in a small trailer. Rock has certainly come a long way since those days, and Lawler is quite proud of everything that Rock has accomplished.

Lawler recalls working with Rocky Johnson (Rock’s dad) in Memphis, and Rock was just a young child at that time. He says he never looked at that young child as someone who would ultimately become one of the greatest wrestlers of all time and the highest-paid actor in Hollywood. Lawler says he lives in the moment and takes things one day at a time.
