The Rock spoke with CBS Cleveland reporter Chris Van Vliet to promote Fast 6 and says he’s confident his last wrestling match was against John Cena at WrestleMania 29.
Rock called WrestleMania 29 a dream scenario but had this to say about his most recent run with WWE:
“The 4 month run I had in WWE was really eye opening. I was able to see a lot of young talent that are very hungry and very humble. What’s interesting is there were some talent there who, it’s just the nature of the business, have become very sour grapes and miserable. The younger guys were very excited and there was that hunger that reminded me of myself 10 to 15 years ago when I first started.”
Rock also gave props to The Shield, Fandango and more. You can see the interview below:

Former WWE Diva Michelle McCool has finally broken her silence on the taboo topic of her marriage to The Undertaker. In collaboration with MichelleMcCool.net, the four-time champion candidly addresses her relationship with “The Deadman” in a video blog that will be released this summer. A teaser has been released where she appears to respond to critics attributing her lofty position in WWE to her influential partner rather than her ability to perform.
The four-time champion will address her marriage and other topics in the vlogs, including her dealings with WWE head Vince McMahon. The synopsis of the teaser is as follows: “Michelle McCool is trying something different with MichelleMcCool.Net. For years, she’s answered questions, written blogs, and has even tweeted back-and-forth on occasion with her Faithful Followers. This time, she’s going to change it up — she’s going to vlog. In her vlogs, Michelle’s at her most candid — like you’ve never seen her before. She’s talking about anything and everything, from her precious baby girl, to even her husband… yeah, him. Raw and real, Michelle doesn’t shy away from controversy; it’s a different side of Michelle McCool… the one you thought you’d never see.”
Months after her spring 2011 retirement from the squared circle, McCool was asked in an interview if she received resentment from her colleagues due to her relationship with The Undertaker and responded, “Bottom line: People in our business are always going to look to find reasons to see the negative in somebody and to become resentful. I don’t really know where it began: probably with me getting the tag as “Diva Search reject.” But I don’t know anybody who, if they had an opportunity like the Diva Search, they wouldn’t jump at it. If they didn’t jump at it, they’d be idiots.”
“People can say what they want to say, but at the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror. I know how hard I fought. I know how many storylines I pitched. I know how hard I worked in the ring. I can’t tell you the number of times I was one of the first people at the arenas or at TV, constantly trying to better myself. I can honestly say that my hard work paid off. My resilience paid off. My persistence paid off. That’s all there is to it. People are always going to say what they want to say and believe what they want to believe, but that’s the bottom line.”

At the Arnold Classic, Scherr suffered a bicep injury. Here are two photos of the 6 foot 7, 375lbs. Scherr:

Dolph Ziggler’s ex-girlfriend Amy Schumer appeared on Conan earlier this week and once again discussed sex with Ziggler.
“We were very different sexually, like he was very active in bed, he was like moving around,” Schumer noted. “He was in such good shape. When you’re naked with someone, you wanna be the one brining the thunder. I wanna be able to whisper things like, ‘You’re welcome’ or like, ‘you owe me for this.’”
Schumer made very similar comments on The Howard Stern Show last summer, stating that “the sex was too athletic… Always. [But] the first time, I was like, ‘Oh, this is cool. Nobody’s ever ragdolled me.’ He was spinning me like a Globetrotter.”
Although Ziggler was never mentioned by name during the segment on Conan, a photo was shown of him.
