10. He bro'ed out on stage with Bill Gates when the Xbox came out
"The Xbox is everything The Rock is," says The Rock in this very charming piece of video game history. "Cutting edge, powerful, exhilarating, and, like The Rock, it will be the most electrifying thing coming out this year." Sadly, the video does not end with Bill Gates getting the People's Elbow.
11. He laid the smackdown on the Republican Convention in 2000
Back in 2000, The Rock attended both the Democratic and Republican Convention as a representative of the WWF, telling everyone to get out there and vote. But only the Republicans let the Great One give a speech on stage, delivering his signature "If you smell what the Rock is cooking" line and introducing the "honorable Dennis Hastert," who was later indicted and pled guilty in a federal hush money case.
12. He introduced the first XFL game
The Rock cut a pretty hilarious promo before the first game ever played in the XFL, WWE head honcho Vince McMahon's short-lived attempt to take on the NFL. "Six years ago NFL suits decided Los Angeles shouldn't have a football team," The Rock told the rabid crowd. "Well, The Rock and Los Angeles and the entire country for that matter are sick and tired NFL suits telling us what we want." Would it surprise you if I said The Rock's monologue ends with him telling the suits to stick something up their asses?
