He’s the number one movie star in the world, and I know he’s been in the gym, but, man, I’m still pretty hard; I’m pretty salty.”
He continued, “You know, I’m still leaning on them beers, and to match us up right here, right now; I’m predicting Stone Cold Steve Austin. I’m sure The Rock would tell you, Dwayne Johnson.”
