The Rock nerds out talking about an amazing Hulk Hogan story

If the current President of the United States of America is a huge pro wrestling fan, then maybe our next commander-in-chief can be an even bigger pro wrestling nerd. While making the rounds to promote his next feature film Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, The Rock got genuinely excited when had the chance to talk a little pro wrestling.

Okay, not just excited, The Rock was down right giddy to tell a story of his younger self getting the chance to meet Hulk Hogan at Madison Square Garden.

Despite the crowd of critics that pops up anytime The Rock drops in for a quick WWE cameo, nobody can question the love Dwayne Johnson has for the business.

Which WWE legend is more likely to make an appearance at WrestleMania 34, Hulk or The Rock? Also, anyone else think Hulk Hogan was kind of huge jerk backstage for not giving back a sixth grader’s priceless wrestling souvenir until three weeks later? Patience is a virtue and all that, brother.
