Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson needs no introduction when it comes to the pro wrestling world, as he is still regarded as one of the all-time greats. He is also a dominant force in Hollywood and brings huge star power to any film he acts in. That being said, he didn’t win over everyone with his in-ring ability.

The Great One had a rocky start in WWE as fans simply rejected him. However, he persevered and became one of the biggest stars in the history of professional wrestling.

While his promo skills are unquestionable, there are quite a few people who believe The Rock simply lacked wrestling skills. While speaking with Wrestling Shoot Interviews, former WWE Superstar Val Venis dragged The Rock’s wrestling skills.

“Now Rock I would never go to for advice on how to wrestle, because lets face it Rock is not the best wrestler in the world. He does very basic things but he’s smart enough to make those very basic things over like rover. The most ridiculous elbow drop on the face of the planet, the elbow drop s**ks but its the best elbow drop going.”


The Rock was last seen for the 20th Anniversary of Friday Night SmackDown back in 2019. We will have to wait and see whether he will be back in time for WrestleMania 39 or not, but odds are we will see The Great One again on WWE television.
