The Rock’s Dream Matches That Never Happened

One big thing: The Rock wanted to face Sting and Randy Savage

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson revealed he pitched matches against WCW stars like Sting and Randy Savage to Vince McMahon after WWE’s 2001 acquisition of WCW.

The details:

• The Rock disclosed this information in VICE’s “Who Killed WCW?” docuseries.
• He created a list of potential opponents in his hotel room, including Goldberg and the nWo.

• Despite his efforts, matches against Sting and Randy Savage never materialized.

By the numbers:

• The Rock won the WCW World Championship from Booker T at SummerSlam 2001.


“I remember sitting down in my hotel room and writing down all the wrestlers who I had hoped to wrestle. Goldberg, Sting, [Randy] Savage, everybody in the nWo. I remember writing everybody down and going to Vince and saying, ‘Hey, this might be a good idea.'”

Why it matters:

The Rock’s revelation highlights the missed opportunities following WWE’s acquisition of WCW. These dream matches could have significantly impacted wrestling history and fan satisfaction.

Looking ahead:

The Rock has hinted at a potential match with Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 41, suggesting his wrestling career may not be over.
