“this is called delivering a devastating, “Rock Bottom” + I assume player in green got up and fought his ass off, unless he got his bell rung. + I also assume there was a card delivered in the red color palette” The Rock wrote.

Interestingly, the referee never gave a red card to Tim for such a violent action towards a fellow soccer player. However, there was chaos on the field once Roldan came back to his feet.
