WWE icon Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson reveals what he told 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin after retiring him at WrestleMania 19

WWE legend Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has finally revealed what he whispered to ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin after retiring him.

The duo were undoubtedly the two biggest stars of WWE’s famous Attitude Era and enjoyed an epic rivalry.

The pair had already main evented both WrestleMania 15 and 17 with Austin triumphing both times.

It was one of the highest-grossing feuds of all-time, and that of course led to an epic trilogy showdown.

After struggling with a number of injuries, Austin’s body was badly beaten going into the Showcase of the Immortals in 2003.

And only a few people knew that it would be the 38-year-old’s last actual match.

Fortunately The Great One was one of those in on the heartbreaking secret, and he had some heart-warming words for him in the ring after beating the Texas Rattlesnake to claim the WWE Title.

Rock can clearly be seen leaning over the laid-out Austin after getting the pin and talking to him.

Now 17 years later he has revealed exactly what he said during an Instagram Q&A.

Rock said: “I whispered to him, ‘I thank you so much for everything that you’ve done for me’.

“And, I said ‘I love you’. He said ‘I love you too’. I hit him on the chest and I left, left him in the ring.”

The Rock has since gone on to become Hollywood’s highest-paid actor but still returned to the ring in 2013 to become WWE champ again.

And despite being 48, he has also been linked with another comeback for next year’s WrestleMania to battle Roman Reigns.
