The Rock called CM Punk from the ring after Raw went off the air in Los Angeles

Without appearing on the main USA Network broadcast of Raw, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson sure has had an eventful night with WWE at Staples Center.

He kicked off the evening with a segment with Vince McMahon before the televised portion of the show began, and he came out to keep the crowd fired up before shooting started on the in-ring scene for Fighting With My Family started (a recreation of Paige winning the Divas title in her main roster debut the night after WrestleMania 30).

I guess since that scene will feature his wife, AJ Lee, the Los Angeles crowd started a CM Punk chant. And, since he’s The Rock and can do whatever the f*** he wants, Johnson got out his cell phone and called Punk. Sadly, it went to voicemail. But he left a message!

Not to be thwarted, The Great One tried to FaceTime The Best In The World, but...

Ah well, he tried.

Seeing as he just got Punk trending again, though, it’s no wonder Vince fired him.

UPDATE: Punk explained why he couldn’t answer... it’s his dog’s birthday.
