We don’t know if The Rock will be appearing on SmackDown 1000 tonight — whether in person or video form — but considering he’s the reason for the name of the show, you would think WWE would want him. We’ll just have to stay tuned to see what happens there.
In the meantime, he did take to social media to tell a story while congratulating the company on hitting 1000 episodes:
Huge #SD1000 congrats to my @WWE family!— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) October 16, 2018
Fun fact, in 1998, I said to @VinceMcMahon “I’m gonna use the word ‘Smackdown’ tonight in my promo”. He said what’s that mean? I said it means I’m gonna whup some ass. He belly laughed and said say it!
The rest was history! #IfYaSmell https://t.co/IVXI0WkkGl
We can’t help but smell what The Rock was cooking, considering the show still exists to this day. What an absolute shredder, eh?
Follow along with the big show tonight here.
