It seems like The Rock is a big admirer of WWE SmackDown’s Shayna Baszler.
Despite not being an active part of pro wrestling, The Rock always makes a point to tweet out his support for the business and the stars working in different promotions. It appears that The Great One makes it a point never to forget where he came from.
During a debate on social media over who the best wrestler is, The Rock chimed in, voicing support for the Queen of Spades.
“Co-sign *tumbler glass emoji* I love Shayna too!!! She’s a wrestling bad a** and trained by a legit wrestling bad a** OG (Billy R) who used to wrestle with my granddad, the great High Chief Maivia. Life is crazy and so connected,” said The Rock on Twitter.
Shayna Baszler replies to The Rock’s compliment
The praise from The Rock got around as Shayna Baszler saw the tweet and responded to him on social media earlier this evening. She said that The Great One has good taste when it comes to recognizing talent, and he is “ok” in her book.
“Yeah, @TheRock is ok in my book too. (Clearly has good taste!),” Shayna Baszler said in response to The Rock.
The Rock and Shayna Baszler have appeared in WWE programming together, back at WrestleMania 31 in 2015 before The Queen Of Spades started working for the company. She appeared at ringside with Ronda Rousey, who took part in a segment with The Rock against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
That same year, The Great One appeared on the big screen alongside Ronda Rousey in Fast & Furious 7.
