WWE legend, Mark Calaway aka Undertaker has stated that he never thought Dwane Johnson aka The Rock would ever make it in the sport of wrestling.
According to him, The Rock had an awful debut performance in 1996 at the Survivor Series at the Madison Square Garden.
Undertake stated that the way the crowd reacted to his performance made him believe he won’t last in the sport.
“I mean, they handcuffed him right out of the get-go, right? I remember watching him, and the Garden [fans], they’re merciless if they don’t like what you’re doing. And man, they just lit him up”, he said.
“I had no clue to how charismatic he was.
“I was like, ‘Such a shame, he’s not gonna be here long.’”
Undertaker added: “Once he got to The Nation of Domination, it had completely flipped.
“By the time he was at the end of his run with them, I was like, ‘He’s not gonna be here long.’
“You could just tell that he was destined [to move on to better things].”
