But when he rose in the WWEwas apparently a behind-the-scenes target for some of the biggest names in the company, including Shawn michaels and Triple H. The fighter Bret hart summarized some of the incidents he saw in a new installment of Confessions of The Hitman. Hart guessed guys like HBK and "The Game" they were very hard on him because they wanted him to break up and quit the business.
"A lot of the fighters were putting him through bad times in those days, it was a really tough time for him, enough to try to break him and get him to quit and they almost did it," said Bret Hart. “And I can remember defending Dwayne Johnson multiple times and taking care of him, Owen too. I think Owen and I had a lot to do with taking care of him when he first came down. He was a marked guy. "
He remembered a time when Michaels scolded him after he hit with a dropkick from the top rope.
"I remember Shawn Michaels walking into the locker room attacking poor Dwayne Johnson," Hart recalled. “Shawn came in and just dressed him up and berated him. And I think HBK told him never to do a drop kick off the top rope again because that was his play. That was what made him angry. And then he closed the door and walked out. The Rock went flat because in those days, Shawn was heavy. He was quite an important guy for the company, a veteran guy who put him down like that, he was apologizing and said he didn't know, and he thought it would be fine. "
“I remember the door closing after Shawn left and I said, That's silly. That is total nonsense. I said: Nobody owns the top dropkick. You can do it. Owen does it all the time! Why don't you do a promo for Owen? I said: They are breaking your ribs and they are trying to work with you.
Hart said the bullying continued and attributed it to jealousy.
"Just jealousy and out of nowhere," Hart said. “Just jealousy, and clearly jealousy. Seeing someone who is a good kid like Dwayne Johnson climbing the ladder upset someone like Shawn Michaels or upset Triple H so much that they couldn't see what was going on. And it wasn't the only time they came in and did those kinds of scenes. They did it a couple of times, but I was also very influential at the time, so I could go in and get him to recover and say, 'Pay no attention to those things, you didn't do anything wrong' because I was still green. That is a term we use in professional wrestling. He was still a rookie. "
So the WWE career of Dwayne johnson it is a story of overcoming.
