Last night, The Rock appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and discussed his recent return to WWE in September on SmackDown.
The Great One revealed that during his visit to Boulder, CO for ESPN College GameDay, he learned that SmackDown was happening in town on the same day, so he called WWE President Nick Khan about his plans to attend SmackDown. He said,
“So, here’s the crazy thing about that. We were in Boulder. I was there for College GameDay, and I found out the night before that WWE SmackDown was going to be in Denver, which is right up the road. So I called my buddies at WWE, Nick Khan, and I said, ‘I heard SmackDown is here, can you confirm that?’ ‘It is.’ ‘Good. Well, The Rock is coming to SmackDown.’ And I went out there — it was a really an incredible thing. I’ve been really lucky over the years to entertain in a lot of different ways, but that kind of connection with the WWE audience — by the way, that kind of connection is just like this tonight with a live audience. There’s nothing like it. There’s nothing like it.”
He continued, “So, my music hit, ‘If you smell–‘ I went out there, they had no idea. And you guys know how hard it is to keep a secret. It doesn’t exist. This was a full on secret. The people went nuts. 13,000 people sounded like 130,000 people. And it was just incredible. WWE audience is my family, and I love them and it was incredible. There’s nothing like going to SmackDown, and laying the SmackDown on their candy asses all night long.”
