WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross appeared on the latest edition of Legends of the Ring, which airs on WWE Classics OnDemand, and spoke out on the reported resentment towards The Rock during his current feud with John Cena heading into WrestleMania 28. The following are some Ross quotes, and you can hear more in the video below:
"Young guys on the roster, or the Internet guys, or anybody else that says, "Well, how does it effect the current roster that The Rock's going to come back and have key spot and he's not on the road everyday?" I want to say, you people have got to be kidding me. You got to be kidding me. Do you understand what The Rock has done for this business? His family has done for this business? And he's coming back as a major movie star, to get back in the ring and be physical. You think The Rock's going through the motions?
He can't. It's not in his DNA. The Rock's DNA is "I'm coming back to put boots in asses. I will not be embarrassed. I will not call it in. I will not phone it in. I will kick some ass." The Rock has respect for this business, will have an amazing WrestleMania that we will be talking about for years to come because he is a stallion. And he loves this business."
