The Rock’s Mic Drop Moment: Defending American Pride
The crowd in San Diego exploded with excitement as The Rock, an eight-time WWE champion, made a dramatic entrance into the ring. With an intense stare, he immediately addressed his opponent, Mahal, with a warning: “You are in trouble tonight.”
In classic villain fashion, Mahal criticized The Rock for showing up and belittled him for defending the crowd. The Rock swiftly fired back, proudly declaring himself as the people’s champion and expressing his love for being an American. He stated, “You come out here and you run your mouth about the truth and why they boo you. Let The Rock tell you some truth – they don’t boo you because of how you look, they don’t boo you because of how you talk, they don’t boo you because you speak Punjabi, no … they boo you because you’re the biggest a–hole walking God’s green Earth.”
The Rock continued his impassioned speech, highlighting the significance of America and the respect it deserves. He criticized Mahal for demeaning the country, proclaiming, “America is not a joke to The Rock, and it ain’t a joke to all these people. It definitely ain’t a joke to every American watching at home right now.”
Asserting the value of freedom of speech, The Rock pointed out that Mahal could freely criticize the government, but the consequences would be different when speaking disrespectfully in the people’s ring, with the people’s champ present.
Finally, The Rock unleashed his fury upon Mahal, delivering a thunderous smackdown. Before leaving the ring, he teasingly hinted at a potential match-up with WWE Undisputed Universal Champion Roman Reigns, asking the crowd where he should go for dinner and whether he should sit at the head of the table.
