Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was pretty busy on wrestling Twitter this weekend. Maybe it was his once-and-possible-future rival Triple H trying to dance in Chile. Maybe it was the man who beat him for the WWE title 17 years ago returning to the ring on anniversary of that match.
Whatever inspired The Great One to send some sports entertainment-centric tweets out to his millions... AND MILLIONS... of followers, it also inspired Australian writer and comedian Ben Pobjie to make the old “you know it’s fake, right?” joke at Rocky in response to his message wishing Kurt Angle well...
Dwayne, wrestling isn't real. It's time you knew. https://t.co/3iqKjHfNAn— Ben Pobjie (@benpobjie) October 22, 2017
With a hat tip to Ben’s sense of humor, Johnson shut that right down...
I like the dry wit— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) October 22, 2017
Correct, I do in fact know wrestling isn’t real. Thats why I said “have fun”. I also know, you can go fuck yourself.
Which, on the one hand... ouch. On the other, The Rock just made you famous, kid!
And Pobjie seems to be taking it in stride:
I remember when I was little and my Mum told me if I worked hard one day I'd be told to go fuck myself and 34,000 strangers would applaud— Ben Pobjie (@benpobjie) October 23, 2017
Who knows? Ben might have a future in pro graps. He seems like a worker...
