Erick Rowan Wishes He Could Have Bantered With The Rock At WrestleMania 32

Erick Rowan had a WrestleMania moment at WrestleMania 32 when he went one-on-one with The Great One. Rowan stood face-to-face with The Rock, though he ended up on the wrong side of history as The Rock quickly hit a Rock Bottom and scored the pinfall victory in just six seconds.

The impromptu match is listed as the shortest match in WrestleMania history, but Rowan has a valid excuse for losing.

"It was cool to see him and what he does, especially in close proximity. It would have been nice to have a little banter but that was not the story that day. A funny story, a big reason I lost in six seconds is, I'm new to the business, it was my first one-on-one match at WrestleMania. I'm looking around and I didn't hear the bell ring. Did I lose fairly? As a match, yes. I was new to it. It wouldn't happen now," joked Rowan on the Lewis Nicholls Show.

As of now, the match is The Rock's final recorded match in history, which also puts Rowan in the record books as The Rock's last opponent. It's also Rowan's only singles match in his WrestleMania career.

Elsewhere during the interview, Rowan discussed his future plans in wrestling following his WWE release. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
