“Next time I see you, I’m slapping your lips off!” Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson mocked Shaquille O’Neal for supporting John Cena at Wrestlemania clash

Throwback to when Shaq and Rock had their friendly tussle citing Wrestlemania 28.

Shaquille O'Neal

Dwayne Johnson and Shaquille O’Neal have an incredible bond of friendship. The two have never failed to have the fans in splits whenever they have tried to get on each other’s nerves just to prove who’s the best in the business. It would be difficult for fans to choose between ‘The Great One’ and ‘The Big Shamrock’ if given a choice. One such incident happened in April of 2012, when the two called each other out on Twitter.

The Rock is reported to make a return to WWE very soon

The NBA Hall of Famer is best known for his massive build and anyone would think twice before mocking him. But the People’s Champ once took it as a dare on his mountain-sized body and made fun of Shaq’s lips with no fear.

Throwback to 2012 when Shaq and The Rock had a tussle

Back in 2012, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was making headline as he had just returned back to WWE to challenge ‘The Champ’ John Cena. WWE hyped WrestleMania 28 as a “Once in a Lifetime” match. WWE witnessed its fan base dividing into two to support either ‘People’s Champ’ The Rock or ‘The Champ’ John Cena. To add to all the hype, Shaquille O’Neil sided with John Cena for the event. Many considered it at that time to be Shaq’s move to pull Dwayne’s leg.

Shaq tweeted, “Oh, going there? Come on #cenation, back me up. Let’s go john cena will smash da rock.”

The Hollywood actor, without doubt had to respond, being the witty one and got back at Shaquille O’Neal in the most savage but hilarious style.

The Rock responded, “@SHAQ Hows your lips Shaq? Cause next time I see you, I’m slapping them off your face. #TeamBringIt #ByeByeLips.” Fast forward to ten years later, this tweet by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson continues to tickle one’s funny bone, aging like a fine wine.

The Great One and The Big Shamrock have always had friendly bantered with each other. That is because Johnson and Shaq share a close bond which allows them to snub each other without the other being offended.

Two years later, The Rock took a dig at Shaquille O’Neal when he visited Shaq’s ‘Inside the NBA’ studio. The Rock knows how to play his cards right because hitting someone on their home turf is pretty embarrassing. And that’s what Dwayne Johnson did to The Big Shamrock in 2014.

One has to be extra-worldly brilliant to outsmart the WWE legend, The Rock. Shaq tried his best by siding with 16-time World Champion John Cena, but The Great One humbled and hilariously silenced him.
