Video: The Rock actually promotes WWE on 'Live with Kelly and Michael'

Hey look, The Rock is actually promoting WWE during an interview on "Live with Kelly and Michael." Who would have thought that would ever happen?

What's this? Is that WWE Champion The Rock on an interview to promote his role in the G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation movie and he's -- GASP -- also actually bothering to talk about the fact that he's wrestling again and will be in the main event of WrestleMania 29 on April 7, 2013, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, in a match against John Cena?

Is that really what's happening in the above video?

Not only that, he actually brings the WWE championship belt with him, but not the one he's currently in possession of. No, this one was made special for host and former New York Giant Michael Strahan.

Huge pop when Rock hands him the title.

This is all in good fun, of course, so don't go thinking we're criticizing The Rock's every move here. Hey, maybe Jay Leno just didn't want to bring it up because he has such bad memories of dealing with Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff, and the rest of the folks at World Championship Wrestling?
