The Rock’s influence in the world of professional wrestling needs no introduction as he has accomplished a lot in the business. The same can be said for his career outside pro wrestling, as he is one of the biggest names in the world. So much so, that Deion Sanders was overly excited to see The Rock at ESPN College GameDay and even gifted him new sunglasses.

The Rock returned to WWE last night on SmackDown, but that wasn’t his only appearance recently as he made an appearance on the September 16 episode of College GameDay on ESPN.

After The Rock made his entrance, Deion Sanders couldn’t hide his excitement at meeting The Great One and expressed his love and respect for The Rock, even stating that if Rock ran for president, he would win. Sanders also gifted The Rock new sunglasses for good measure.

The Rock is also meeting with WWE regarding storyline options as well. We will have to wait and see whether The Rock will make more appearances on WWE television in the coming weeks.
