He even went as far to claim that the DX duo wanted The Rock GONE from Vince McMahon’s promotion.

Hart recalled a particular incident where Rock received a grilling after he performed a diving dropkick.

Michaels reportedly blasted the Great One for using the move and claimed it took the shine away from other performers who used it. 

That alleged incident led to Hitman taking Rock under his wing and looking out for the youngster – who would go on to become one of the biggest stars ever and Hollywood’s highest-paid actor.

Now, current AEW performer and fellow WWE icon Jericho has admitted there was some truth to the bullying rumours.

He claimed, via Sportskeeda, to have heard about incidents from the past and that the rivalry could have existed before they even worked together in WWE.

Y2J said: “As far as I know, [Bret’s comments are] true, from what The Rock told me.


“That’s the reason why The Rock and Shawn Michaels never worked a match.

“I think Shawn might have insulted The Rock when he was a kid, in Hawaii.”

As stated by Jericho, Michaels and Rock never worked a match in WWE despite being two of the biggest names to ever compete there.
