According to former powerlifter and WWE wrestler Mark Henry, back in Dwayne Johnson's younger days his fellow wrestlers thought he needed to be taken down a peg or two.
As reported by The Sun, Henry was speaking on the Busted Open podcast when he told the disgusting story of how the old guard of WWE wrestlers decided to teach the young up-and-comer a lesson.
It turns out that some the older wrestlers came up with the prank of putting a human poo in The Rock's lunchbox.
Allegedly annoyed at The Rock's charisma and rising star, the disgusting prank was discovered by Henry who gave his friend a bit of advice.
Explaining that the more experienced wrestlers were 'envious of us new guys coming in', he told the story of how he discovered someone had put poo in The Rock's lunchbox.
He said: "Me and The Rock, we always had our locker right next to each other.
"I came in and saw people laughing and giggling and running away from where our lockers were. I saw his box was open. I grabbed the box and was going to close it and I looked in it and there was s**t in it."
"Somebody s**t in his food box, so of course, I have to dispose of this and tell him, 'Hey man, don’t leave your food in here'."
It may be hard to imagine a bunch of grown men, let alone professional wrestlers, pulling pranks and running away giggling like children but that's apparently exactly what happened.
Luckily for The Rock, the stunt didn't knock his confidence as he went on to become one of the most successful wrestlers in WWE history before forging a blockbusting acting career.
They say living well is the best revenge and if that's true then The Rock has risen far above and beyond the people sticking poo in his lunchbox.
His films have raked in a combined total of more than $12 billion at the box office worldwide, and his upcoming superhero movie Black Adam is expected to be another smash hit.
Due to be released later this year, the movie follows previous big hitters in The Rock's career such as the Jumanji movies and the Fast and Furious franchise.
We don't want to tempt fate, but we reckon the days of people picking on The Rock with disgusting pranks are long gone.
