G.I. Joe:Retaliation, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, and Fast 5.

Well we thought why not follow up our Rock Attitude Era timeline with a Rock Hollywood special.


Join Ross and some of the millions! AND MILLIONS! Of Rock fans we have here dive into the transition from wrestler who acts to one of the biggest box office draws of all time.

On the film side of things we touch on The Rocks original dive into Hollywood. With small cameos in sequels such as Mummy 2 & Be Cool. To starring as a leading man in action films such as Run Down, Walking Tall, and Scorpion King.

The team also discuss Rock’s failures and set backs on his road to make it without using wrestling, becoming “franchise viagra”, The Rock name becoming part of his brand once again, and him dropping his 220 Disney frame to become a 280 action star.

While on the wrestling side of things, we discuss how this new venture affected his relationship with the fans. From being booed out of the building at Summerslam 2002, which lead to possibly Rocks greatest heel run, Hollywood Rock.

We of course also discuss his electrifying return in 2011, his feud with John Cena, his WWE title run in 2013, injury preventing any further comebacks, and as always some fantasy booking.

Who would the panel like to see take on Rock in one more match? Tune in and find out.
