Dwayne Johnson backs Ronda Rousey for upcoming fight

While he is used to hearing his name chanted by the members of the WWE universe, it appears that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of the millions … and millions members of Ronda Rousey’s fanclub.

Johnson, who co-starred with Rousey in “Fast and the Furious 7“ tweeted a picture, Dec. 19, that showed his support for the UFC Women’s Bantamweight champion as she gets ready to defend her title against Miesha Tate at UFC 168, Dec. 28.


Being a co-star of Rousey and a fan of mixed martial arts, it is not a surprise that Johnson is a fan of Rousey’s. If I recall, Johnson said in an interview that he would have taken up mixed martial arts rather than wrestling if he had known how popular the sport would have become.

It is also common to see pro wrestlers and mixed martial artists be a fan of each other’s work. We’ve seen The Undertaker backstage with Matt Hughes. Tito Ortiz has attended “Monday Night Raw” in the past.

Fortunately this is not pro wrestling or else we might see The Rock get in the face of Brian Caraway before or during the Rousey vs. Tate bout, although that still might be entertaining.
