Before the Miami Heat take on the Boston Celtics in the first game of the NBA's Eastern Conference Finals, Heat legend Dwyane Wade shares his excitement with an old WWE segment featuring The Rock.
Wade posted on Instagram the ending of a lengthy segment between The Rock and Michael Cole, who was donning a Celtics jersey. The segment ended with The Rock hitting Cole with a Rock Bottom, telling him "Go Heat Bitch!" beforehand.
Even WWE acknowledged Wade's post with the following article. From WWE:
The Miami Heat begin their NBA Eastern Conference Finals matchup against the Boston Celtics tonight, and Dwayne Wade is ready for his old team to lay the smackdown.
Wade posted a throwback video of The Rock delivering a Rock Bottom and The People’s Elbow to a shamrock-green-and-white-clad Michael Cole.
The post lit up social media and even forced Celtics legend Paul Pierce to hop into the comments.
The winner of the Heat-Celtics series will play in the NBA Finals, where they will face the winner of the series between Los Angeles Lakers and the winner of the Denver Nuggets vs. Los Angeles Clippers series. The first game of their best-of-seven series will air on ESPN on September 15 at 6:40 p.m. ET.
