The Rock Explains The Origin of The People’s Champion
Posted by Larry Csonka on 04.08.2014



- The Rock posted he following on his Instagram, discussing the origin of "The People's Champion"…

Crazy story.. In 1997 (1yr into my wrestling career) I started using the moniker "The People's Champion" in honor of one of my heroes Muhammad Ali. In 1998 the Ali family came to see me wrestle in Louisville, KY and gave me the officially nod from Muhammad himself to carry the "People's Champ" name proudly. From that defining night in Louisville to last night's WRESTLEMANIA 30 in New Orleans, I proudly stand The People's Champ. To me, it'll always mean much more than a nickname... its a very special connection. THANK YOU.#PeoplesChamp4Life #ThxStoneCold4TheBeers
