10 Times The WWE Fans Went Off Script

10. Rock Vs. Brock


The Rock passing the ceremonial torch to Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam 2002 ought to have been commended - especially after Stone Cold passed up the opportunity a few months prior.

Yet 'The Great One', who was nominally still a fan favourite heading into the event, ended up being on the receiving end of boos, together with an audible "You sold out" chant, as the crowd began to resent the fact that one of their idols was about to head for Hollywood.

Bizarrely, in subsequent WWE appearances The Rock has almost always been roundly cheered, as though fans - despite the initial protests - have with time come to accept that the man's star power is simply too great to be confined to the relatively small world of professional wrestling.
