“The Rock Teases Rivals and Ja Morant in WWE SmackDown Concert”

Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, performed a concert in character during a WWE SmackDown event in Memphis. He made fun of his rivals, Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins, using comedic roasts.

The concert was a throwback to his beloved 2003 skit. The audience reacted to his verbal jabs, including Ja Morant, a basketball player for the Memphis Grizzlies. During the concert, The Rock made a joke about Morant’s suspension from the NBA.

Morant had previously received an eight-game suspension for waving a gun during a live stream while intoxicated on March 4. The second time was during a live stream on May 13, which led to a 25-game suspension.

It’s typical for villainous wrestlers, known as heels, to tease sports teams from the host cities to get a reaction from the crowd. The Rock and his cousin, Roman Reigns, are currently feuding with Rhodes and Rollins. All four wrestlers will take part in a tag team match during the first night of WrestleMania 40 on April 6.
