10 WWE Moments Only The Rock Could Get Away With

10. His WrestleMania 32 Segment


The worst offender during the nadir of WWE's catastrophically-organised WrestleMania 32, The Rock managed to set new records in self-aggrandising (even for him), whilst using his appearance to parrot WWE's attendance lie and pin one of the company's young talents in six seconds.

It was a tour-de-force of audience no-no's, with The Rock's glacial delivery unable to garner his required responses from an exhausted crowd that had already experienced over three and a half hours of action (and that's if they arrived after the pre-show).

Having lit an effigy of his own name with a flamethrower in the entrance before spouting the nonsense figure, Rock was supplied The Wyatt Family to bounce his punchlines off, before disposing of Erick Rowan in a six-second match then beating down the trio with a returning John Cena's assitance.

From his entrance to his exit, the extended skit nearly went half an hour, which was loosely acceptable on the freewheeling broadcast, but would ordinarily be a complete disaster in anybody else's hands.
