At Survivor Series 2011, R-Truth teamed with The Miz to take on the dream team of John Cena and The Rock.
Truth and Rock were both in WWE together a decade earlier with Truth working under the name K-Kwik, but the two men hadn't been in the ring together during that time. However, fans can credit Truth for helping The Rock expand his horizons in that time.
"We’ve always been cool," R-Truth told Alex McCarthy of TalkSPORT when asked about his relationship with The Rock. "I remember back in the Attitude Era when The Rock was doing music with Wyclef Jean and he’d ask me ‘hey, do you think I’m doing too much? You think I shouldn’t be rappin’?’ I said ‘Bro, do it!’ We were always cool. But he reached a whole different height once the Attitude Era was done. For it to come back full circle and to be in the ring with him [was great].
The tag team bout between Truth & Miz against Rock & Cena headlined Survivor Series 2011 and was used to further advance the story between Rock and Cena.
Recalling the match, Truth said, "I remember when me and Miz, we didn’t say nothing to each other walking through the hallway on the way to gorilla. We got in the ring, the smoke cleared and we could see Madison Square Garden was sold out. Packed out. We looked across the ring and there was Rock and Cena. We looked at each other and just smiled and right there we gave each other a dap and a hug. We both knew what that meant right there. Everybody was high-fiving (after the match) – no egos around! No egos at all, man. It was all gratitude, humbleness, respect, appreciation – we were all a team at the time, man. To me, that was one of the highest pinnacles of my career. Just one of the best fulfilled moments where I can pat myself on the back and say I did it."
Cena and Rock were victorious in the match. Awesome Truth would split up the following night on Raw.
