Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Reminisces With Stone Cold Steve Austin About Wrestling In The 90s
| Last updated
The 90s were great - we had cassettes, The Crystal Maze, Turkey Twizzlers and The Rock wearing tight undies and jumping around in WWF (or WWE as we know it today).
First up Austin retweeted a post by @90sWWE that said: "Icons. @steveaustinBSR @TheRock #goodtimes," along with a picture of the pair toasting beer while in the ring.

The Rock responded with a tweet saying they were the 'best of times'.
He commented: "Best of times. Gimme six stunners and pop that beer open.."
The social media moment has caused a stir, leading to fans of the former wrestling champs to reunite once more in the ring with a lot of people simply tweeting 'One more round?' and some calling for a WresltleMania rematch.
However, it is very unlikely the former rivals will put on their tight pants again and enter the ring for a serious match. According to Ringside News, the publisher and editor of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter - Dave Meltzer - insists that the WWE legends' schedule and fitness would never allow them to sign a long-term deal.
He said: "I don't see them wrestling. I mean Austin, I don't believe Austin will ever wrestle again I mean it's been too many years and he's 53. I don't see Steve wrestling.
"The last time I saw him, which was a while ago, he was really big and he was in good shape. But he's 53 and the last time he did something physical he got hurt. I don't see it."
He added a similar comment about The Rock being too busy with his Hollywood schedule and his age.
"The Rock is the same thing. The last time he did a match he got hurt real bad and he hasn't done a serious match since. Now he's 46 and he's got that big movie career.
"Could I see either of them doing a spot at a WrestleMania? Of course. A run? No. A match? I mean, one match for Rock possibly but look if Rock was going to do a match it would have been this year.
"It would have been the Ronda match because that's the match they wanted. When Rock didn't do that match I got to think that he's done, unless you're doing another nine-second match or something like that. But serious match I don't see there's too much money in him."
Others have leaned towards the pair teaming up for film - this seems more doable since Johnson has made waves on the movie scene, plus wouldn't that be awesome? Come on guys.
