The Rock Appears On Good Morning America & Live With Kelly & Michael (Video)

– WWE will be heavily promoting The Rock’s new movie “Pain & Gain” at WrestleMania Axxess, with several stars from the film making appearances at the fan fest.

– WWE champion “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and “Live with Kelly & Michael” on Wednesday morning to promote the new “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” movie.

On Good Morning America, Rock talked about being a huge fan of G.I. Joe and Star Wars as a kid, his co-star Channing Tatum being named “World Sexiest Man” as well as his favorite part of getting into shape for the movies – his epic “cheat days.” They wheeled out a cart of what The Rock eats on his cheat days – including a dozen pancakes, double-dough pizza (2 pies on top of each other) and brownies that have peanut butter cookies inside of them.

On Live With Kelly & Michael, The Rock spoke a lot about WWE, including the significance of WrestleMania returning home to the New York Market and why he returned to WWE. He also presented host Michael Strahan with a replica WWE Title belt. Here’s video of the appearance:

    When I expect a gift from a millionaire, I’d expect something better…but considering is coming from The Rock, I bet you she got WET, and the guy(and his) son were thrilled!

    Hell, I’d even be happy with just Rock calling me a Jabroni!

      The IWC will just find another reason to bitch about The Rock.

    • Bushwald Sexyface

      Love that picture

    • Craig DeBoard

      He mentions it one time and you get wet from it? I wonder if you cheered for Hornswoggle too when he was beat Chavo three times a week like Jerry Lawler told you to the same way he told you to boo CM Punk when he turned. Take your meme elsewhere. This is a site for wrestling fans, not movie star fans.

        the rock is one of the greastest wrestlers to step foot in the bussiness, he came back, NOT LIKE EVERYONE THOUGHT HE WAS, but no matter what he is making that company money and bringing in new fans to the product. so by what your saying, im gonna say fuck the undertaker because his only match is wrestlemania for the past years since your bitching about the rock showing up a few times.

        • SolomonGrundy

          Undertaker doesn’t hold a title belt so he is not obliged to show up in anyway. The only reason he shows up anymore is to defend his streak at WRESTLEMANIA which is why he shows to wrestle at WM each year since it’s a yearly show..

          On the other hand Rock is the WWE champ the most important championship in the WWE and he barely shows up on Raw & ignores the whole business on one show.

          • Justin TheeRatchet Dudek

            they put the belt on the rock even though its stupid but NO ONE in wwe can get all the publicity he does n its wrestlemania time so they need all the buys they can get and rock can do that. IM NOT A ROCK MARK, just stating truth.

            What you and the rest of the IWC clearly cant get through your thick skulls is, the shows that Rock was on where he “didnt mention the WWE” he wasn’t there to promote the wwe, he was on kimmel and he promoted, he was on this show and promoted. Rock is a busy man and he’s gunna be on different shows promoting DIFFERENT things.

    Damn that belt looks better and better the more I see it.

    • Reality

      Had the same feeling watching this vid. Imagine Rock was giving him the spinning one x’D

    • raVen

      when you only see the centerpiece of a show once a month it does make it feel special.

  • Ayatollah of rock N rolla

    IWC response after he mentions the WWE: He promoted WWE, we dont need a movie star promoting wwe, go back to hollywood.

  • G.I.R.L.

    Great, now everyone can quit bitching.
