A-list Hollywood star and former WWE champion Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson made news recently for his open discussions with host Joe Rogan on a Joe Rogan Experience podcast episode. But MMA legend Chael Sonnen criticized Rogan for failing to bring up a pertinent query regarding Johnson’s purported steroid use, calling the exchange “two actors pretending.”

Chael Sonnen also pointed out that Johnson’s potential presidential ambitions were a topic Joe Rogan failed to address during the three-hour-long episode. In 2016, The Rock contemplated running for President of the United States, gaining significant public support despite not revealing his political views at the time. Sonnen also wondered why Rogan did not ask Johnson about his blatant steroid use. This is what he said:

The Rock had a story that he was considering going into Pride. When you are a blatant steroid abuser, and you are sitting there juiced out of your mind, you are going to go to that one organization. It would have been a good time for Joe Rogan to give him the bump back, but he didn’t do it.

Despite the criticism, Sonnen admired Dwayne Johnson for his narrative talent. He acknowledged Johnson’s intriguing tales and authentic stories as adding value to the podcast. He also recognized Johnson’s ability to captivate viewers with his personal experiences.

As the debate about whether Joe Rogan squandered a chance to address key aspects of Dwayne Johnson’s life continues, it remains to be seen how this episode will affect both Rogan and Johnson’s future podcast debates and public opinion.
