The Rock says... it doesn’t get any better than this by Seth Mates

TORONTO – Just minutes after his unbelievable match with Hollywood Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania, caught up with an elated Rock to talk about what he called the greatest night of his life.

“This is, by far, the greatest night in the history of my career,” Rock told “In this industry, my main objective was to be the absolute best, period. And what Hogan did for me tonight – I can’t thank him enough.”

Rock says that performing in front of almost 70,000 fans – most of whom were on their feet and screaming for the entire bout – was a moment he won’t soon forget.

“It’s the greatest feeling, period,” he said. “I dare say it will never be duplicated. You think about 70,000 people, non-stop screaming for almost 40 minutes. It’s a testament to their passion.”

The People’s Champion admits that he was surprised that the crowd was booing him for a bit, but adds he was confident that it wouldn’t last for long.

“I love the fact that they’re so passionate,” he said. “They show me their passion when they cheer me – and they show their passion when they boo me. What I love about it is I had the confidence in my relationship with the fans that I can turn to them and say, ‘Continue to boo me, because I’m going to continue to entertain you.’ And for that, I’m so thankful for them.

“I’d like to end this interview just by saying I can’t thank Hulk Hogan enough for what he did for me.”
