The Rock has become a huge name in the film industry, having starred in several of the biggest movies of all time. Even now in 2017, he hasn’t forgot where he came from.

WrestlingInc reports that The Rock had a Twitter exchange with WWE ‘NXT’ superstar Buddy Murphy, who tweeted that he had just watched The Rock’s new movie, Baywatch.

Buddy Murphy signed with WWE back in 2013 and is a one-time WWE NXT Tag Team Champion alongside Wesley Blake and current WWE Raw Women’s Champion, Alexa Bliss.

The Rock appears to be saying he has faith in Murphy becoming a top superstar in the company. As any superstar will tell you, getting approval from a superstar like The Rock means a lot, so this is big for Murphy.

Editor’s Note:

As a fellow Australian, I couldn’t be more happy for Murphy. He has achieved something most Australian wrestling fans don’t get. Getting acknowledged by The Rock is a huge deal, so hopefully management sees this as a big name investing in Murphy, to where they give him a push. He is extremely talented. Underrated.

What are your thoughts on Buddy Murphy? Do you see anything big coming from him? Let us know in the comments below or over on our Facebook page or Twitter account. Additionally, you can follow me on Twitter at @SOSNH1995 if you’d like. Thank you for your time.
