Even The Rock struggled with promos when he started wrestling.
Before Victoria made her WWE debut in 2002, she was making waves in Ohio Valley Wrestling. She even caught the attention of The Rock, who was excited to see what she had to offer once she made it to the main roster.
Speaking on her Grown Ass Women podcast, Victoria recalled her first meeting with The Rock.
"I was at OVW and I went backstage, I don't know what the hell I was doing backstage. They kept bringing me back and forth. I didn't know whether to call him Dwayne or Rock. He came up to me and was like, 'Are you Victoria? I heard a lot about how you're working at OVW and how we're excited about having you come up.' I go, 'I really need to work on my promos.' He goes, 'I was awful at promos.' This is coming from a guy who is great on the mic. He says, 'You'll get better and better. I was terrible at the beginning.' I was trying to act normal and cool. He says, 'Welcome aboard, welcome to the company.' He walked away and I was like, 'Holy shit, oh my God. That's The Rock.' He's one of the nicest guys in the business," she said.
Co-hosts Mickie James and So Cal Val along with special guest Melina also put over The Rock and his Teremana tequila, which they were drinking as part of their Cinco De Mayo celebration.
