The Godfather revealed that at one time, he and The Rock used to travel together along with Mark Henry and D’Lo Brown. But one day, Dwayne Johnson came up to The Godfather and said that he can’t ride with them anymore.

The Godfather said, “He’s like, ‘Hey Big Dog, I can’t ride with you no more.’ I’m like, ‘Why not?’ He goes, ‘Bro, every time I go to some place, I’m smelling like Cannabis.'”

Further, The Godfather revealed how some people used to ask Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson about smoking.

The WWE Hall of Famer noted, “He’s like, ‘No, I don’t smoke.’ And they are like, ‘Well, you sure smell like it.’ So, next time he comes around, they are like, ‘Rock, you smell like smoke again. You keep saying you don’t smell like smoke but every time we see you smell like smoke.'”
