Brian Myers Recalls Helping The Rock Train For Match With John Cena, 'He Couldn't Have Been Cooler'

Brian Myers recalls helping The Rock get ready for a match with John Cena.

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson last wrestled an official match in 2013, as he was defeated by John Cena in the main event of WrestleMania 29. A year before that, Rock was able to defeat Cena at WrestleMania 28, which was his first singles match in nearly nine years.

In a new interview with Sam Roberts, Brian Myers, who was known as Curt Hawkins in WWE, recalled helping Johnson get ready for a match with Cena, although it wasn't explicitly stated which match with Cena that he helped him train for.

“I was on the train to go on a date with now wife and Johnny Axe was calling me and I’m like, ‘Oh no, this can’t be good’ because I’m like jabrone Curt Hawkins doing nothing. He’s like, ‘Hey, hold on, they’re patching in Joe Henning’ and I’m going, ‘What on earth could be going on now’ and then he explained to us that Hunter decided that we would be the best candidates to be his training guys. It was pretty crazy, we were like his Secret agent crash test dummies. The travel agent would just call you at the drop of the hat and be like, ‘Dwayne wants to train tomorrow, he’s in New Orleans, here’s a 7AM there and a 7PM home.’ You’d just go and there’d be a ring set up in a warehouse. On the flip side, The Rock couldn’t have been cooler. [He was] the coolest dude ever. You’re around somebody and you [realize] why he’s one of the most successful dudes ever on earth because of the way he carries himself and the way he handles his business and stuff. Me and Joe were just complete jabrones and he was so cool to us.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Myers talked about his current tag team with Moose in IMPACT Wrestling. Fans can learn more by clicking here.
