Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had many battled in a WWE ring, but there can only be one top opponent. The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin are widely considered to be two of the greatest superstars in the pro wrestling world, and their rivalry is still talked about to this day.

The two superstars main evented multiple pay-per-view events including WrestleMania and set new attendance and pay-per-view buy-rate records. Many fans believe that The Rock’s greatest opponent is Austin and vice versa.

The Rock took to Twitter on Tuesday and replied to a fan’s tweet about his iconic rivalry with the Texas Rattlesnake. The Great One talked about their mentality and showed major respect to his longtime friend.

There’ll never be another time like this in pro wrestling. Wrestling industry was on FIRE + with a PPV biz model – @steveaustinBSR and I approached every main event with a “if we don’t draw PPV’s, then we don’t f*ckin’ eat” attitude. Fans felt that hunger and passion. SCSA = 🐐

A&E dedicated an entire episode to their rivalry on the first season of WWE Rivals. The Rock and Stone Cold changed the landscape of professional wrestling with their character and charisma, and there’s no arguing that. Obviously, that feud left a lasting impression with The Great One as well.
