Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is one of the most famous faces on the planet today, and he’s built himself up into that position over the last two decades courtesy of his hard work and determination.

Of course, due to the nature of his run in professional wrestling, it’s easy for fans to recognise and appreciate some of his most popular traits and moves – like the Rock Bottom. The Great One will forever be intertwined with the finisher until the day he dies, and now, one man has taken it upon himself to throw a ‘tip of the hat’ in the direction of the former world champion.

That man is Israel Adesanya, who is widely considered to be one of the most exciting fighters in mixed martial arts today. He’ll be facing the legend Anderson Silva this weekend at UFC 234 in Melbourne.

As you can see, all eyes are on Israel when he’s doing his thing – especially when it comes to open workouts. The Stylebender decided to have a little bit of fun with the crowd, just days away from the biggest fight of his life.

Whilst this is nothing more than a fun moment with the crowd, it certainly begs the question of what Israel could achieve if he ever decided to make the move into the world of professional wrestling.

We know that we’re being incredibly presumptuous, but it’s kind of hard not to be when you’ve got a guy as infectious as Adesanya putting on shows like this.

Our recommendation for the week: make sure you catch his fight The Spider this weekend. The Rock certainly will.
