Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, has been one of the company’s biggest wrestlers. The Rock is a third-generation wrestler. Likewise, WWE’s star from the attitude era Jeff Jarrett is also a third-generation wrestler. Additionally, he started his career in 1986 at his father’s promotion. Additionally, in 2021, on Twitter, Jarrett addressed Johnson about their first meeting in 1987.

Johnson replied to Jarret by saying, Haha I sure do, my brother. I was a 15yr old punk kid, still living with Downtown Bruno in that little motel in Nashville. You were always good to me, man, and I’ll appreciate that. How bout that time you & the Nasty Boys took me out, and I got f**ked up on Jack Daniels.”

The Rock at that time was a 15-year-old kid and was living with Downtown Bruno in Nashville. He also thanked Jarrett for his constant kindness. Additionally, he also recalls Jarrett and the Nasty Boys taking him out and getting him extremely drunk on Jack Daniels.

Despite the fact that they had known each other since their younger years, they had never competed against each other or in the ring together. Since Jarrett has been in and out of the WWF and WCW, they have never built a rivalry.

How did Jeff Jarrett give Vince McMahon a tough time?

In 1999, Jarrett’s contract was about to expire before he dropped the Intercontinental Championship to Chyna. However, Jarret demands a huge amount of money from WWE or else he would take the title to WCW. If you don’t know, Madusa took her WWF Women’s Championship title at WCW and threw it into a trash can.

WWF didn’t want that to happen again, and Jarrett used this fear to his advantage. Eventually, McMahon had to pay over six figures to Jeff Jarrett for the match against Chyna.

In addition, Jarrett launched TNA (now Impact Wrestling), which was a strong competitor to the WWF. TNA’s popularity grew, and so many of the top WWE performers competed in the TNA promotion. However, Jarrett returned to WWE for the 2019 Royal Rumble.
