Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Reminisces With Stone Cold Steve Austin About Wrestling In The 90s

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Reminisces With Stone Cold Steve Austin About Wrestling In The 90s

Fans are calling for the former wrestling rivals to reunite in the ring once more

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).

We're not the only ones to love a nostalgic reminisce over those pre-wifi glory days, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin took to Twitter to gush over their formative years.

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.
