Dwayne Johnson is currently doing his media rounds to promote the new Disney movie Moana and his appearances have not been any less than entertaining. From sharing his singing secrets (tequila) to shedding a manly tear or two, the WWE and Hollywood star provided some of the best interviews to the press. He also took the time to look back at the Rock vs Vin Diesel, who many would know was sparked by an Instagram war early this year.

The Instagram post, which can be seen below, sees the Rock calls some (or one) of his co-stars in Fast 8 a “candy a**” for being unprofessional. Many eventually surmised that the person the Rock was referring to was none other than Vin Diesel, who eventually launched his own tirade.

Another Instagram post further fueled the Rock vs Vin Diesel fire when Johnson shared a photo to culminate the end of the Fast 8 filming. The post saw him thanking almost the entire crew, leaving out Diesel.

Since then, many have speculated that the feud was simply done as a promotional stunt for the upcoming installment of the Fast and the Furious series.

Others, however, are suggesting that it could be a set-up for something more WWE related. And with Johnson’s recent comments about Diesel during the Moana media rounds, rumors of the Rock vs Vin Diesel clashed are beginning to make noise once more.

“I was very clear with what I said. I’ve been in the game a long time,” Johnson shared. “Would Universal have preferred that didn’t happen? Sure, we talked about it. The irony is after that and as they do their tracking and all their analysis, the interest shot through the roof to a whole other level.”

Forbes seems to think that this could be a build up for a WrestleMania clash between the two Hollywood action giants.

“Given WWE’s history of incorporating celebrities into WrestleMania in either a specialized guest role or involving them in a match, it’s not crazy to draw the conclusion that WWE would be very interested in a Diesel/Rock match,” wrote Anthony DiMoro.
