The Rock reveals the in-ring bet that used to win him crates of Stone Cold's beer


In the last decade or so, The Rock has transitioned seamlessly from wrestling into acting.

Indeed, he’s such a good actor that people are beginning to believe he would make a viable President of the United States.

However, the artist formerly known as Dwayne Johnson, who is also confusingly known as Dwayne Johnson again now, didn’t begin his acting career when he left the ring.


Now, I know what you’re thinking – wrestling involves some acting? I know, it came as a real shock to us too.

However, Hannibal Buress isn’t as naïve as everyone else.

During his Handsome Rambler podcast, the comedian thought out loud about how he recalled The Rock frequently overselling Stone Cold Steve Austin’s trademark finishing move, the Stone Cold Stunner.

Buress was right, it seems, but there was a little more to it than that.

The Rock admitted that not only did he oversell the move, but he did it for a very good reason.

It turns out he and Austin would bet cases of beer on ‘how crazy’ the sells were. And, based on the below, he was probably up quite a few cases over the course of his career.
