The Rock Takes Ring As WWE WrestleMania 27 Host

Wrestlemania 27, now officially underway. Everyone raised to their feet as the Rock stood at the entrance listening to the crowd change “Rocky” for 3 straight minutes. FINALLY, the Rock decides its time to take to the ring. Turnbuckle one? Check. Turnbuckle two? Check. Turnbuckle three? Check. Turnbuckle four? Well yeah, he hit ’em all as he posed for the fans.

After listening to the Rock’s theme song for 7 straight minutes, Dwayne Johnson grabs the mic and stands there even longer as he listens to the crowd chant his name. What does he have to tell us this evening?!?

FINALLY, THE ROCK HAS COME BACK TO ATLANTA. AND FINALLY, THE ROCK HAS COME BACK TO WRESTLEMANIA.” Here we go.

The Rock “promises” this will be the most memorably Wrestlemania of all time. We’ll see about that. You might want to stay with us as we update you throughout the event, just in case he’s right.

The Rock led the crowd in a VERY LOUD chant of “wrestle,” “MANIA!” He then went on to make fun of John Cena by asking what rainbow fruity pebble t-shirt he is putting on right now. The crowd reminded the Rock that CENA SUCKS.

The Rock then enjoyed some People’s water. Millions and millions of chants going on here… and lots of pandering to the audience.

The Rock then instructed everyone to pose with a microphone above his head and yell “IF YOU SMELLLLLL WHAT THE ROCK IS COOKING.” And everyone went freaking crazy.

More to come.
