When The Rock Destroyed Five Legends In The Greatest WWE Promo Of All Time
The Rock's legendary mic skills were rolled out to full effect when he savaged five legends in an outstanding WWE promo ahead of the 2000 Armageddon PPV.
The WWE legend was scheduled to face Kurt Angle, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Triple H, The Undertaker and Rikishi in a Hell in a Cell match for the WWE Championship.
And The Rock delivered an incredible backstage promo on Raw 19 years ago this week, which was tweeted out by the WWE Network.
The 47-year-old ex-WWE superstar, who retired from wrestling in August, mocked the milk-drinking Kurt Angle first before pulling off a brilliant impression of Rikishi.
WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi was involved in a storyline where he admitted to using a car to run over Stone Cold, saying that he 'did it for The Rock.'
The Rock, real name Dwayne Johnson, put on a stern face, eyes wide open and repeated Rikishi's claim before slamming the "thong-wearing fatty."

The future WWE Hall of Famer mocked The Undertaker's iconic 'rest in peace' catchphrase before slamming Triple H by putting on a raspy voice and adding 'uh' to the end of each sentence.
The Rock capped off his fine performance by putting on a Stone Cold cap and went to town on the Texan.
WWE superstar Billie Kay, who is one-half of The IIconics, revealed that she would cut The Rock's promo during her childhood.
"I used to cut this promo in the mirror when I was 11 years old," she tweeted.
