One must always respect another’s signature move! And Becky Lynch did just that before making her grand SummerSlam 2021 return. She called up Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock to ask if she could use the Rock Bottom.

During her conversation on Out of Character with Ryan Satin, she revealed the conversation she had with The Great One before she used the variation upon her return.

“So I used a variation of The Rock Bottom before but it’s just easier to get it and go. I asked The Rock if I could use it and he was very gracious and said that I could so.”

“I told him how SummerSlam is gonna go down. And said, ‘Look, here’s what I’m thinking. I’m supposed to hit one move on her. Can I use this?’ ‘Yeah!'” H/t Out of Character with Ryan Satin

It’s amazing that The Man did this. Usually, Superstars just go ahead and use other pro-wrestlers’ finisher moves, and pass them off as tributes. However, here she went the extra mile and reached out to The Rock to know if he was comfortable with it. RESPECT!

Whenever she steps out to the ring, there’s a mixture of cheers and boos. This is a great thing because the cheers indicate the presence of her fans in the crowd, and the boos indicate her success as heel.
