Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson recreates iconic ‘shut up bi**h’ meme with Austin Theory during his return to WWE SmackDown

The moment has finally arrived – Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson made his long-awaited return to the blue brand this week. The 51-year-old superstar once again captivated the entire WWE Universe with some old-school nostalgia in his segment. The Rock was scheduled to face his cousin Roman Reigns in the main event of this year’s WrestleMania.

However, plans changed when The Brahma Bull pulled out of the match due to scheduling conflicts. He later teased his return to the ring in a video he shared during WrestleMania weekend. With the ongoing drama between The Bloodline and Jey Uso, this would be a golden opportunity for WWE to book The Great One against The Tribal Chief at WrestleMania and finally deliver the dream match that has been teased for years.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson recreates iconic meme on WWE SmackDown

Over the years, The Rock has had several memorable moments in WWE, some of which have been turned into memes by the fans. One of the funniest ones was his iconic “Shut up bi**h” line which he used to shut down many superstars. And at Friday Night SmackDown this week, The Great One recreated this meme during his verbal exchange with Austin Theory.

When he stepped into the ring with Theory and Pat McAfee, Theory engaged in a war of words with The Rock. However, The Brahma Bull promptly silenced Theory, delivering a variation of his famous “Shut up, bi**h” line to the former US champion. The Rock was notorious for his iconic catchphrases, using them to shut others up.

During the opening segment of last night’s SmackDown, The Rock made a surprise appearance in the ring. The fans’ reaction was deafening, as they erupted in what could be described as one of the loudest pops in wrestling history upon hearing The Brahma Bull’s theme song.

The 51-year-old megastar signed some autographs and took pictures with some fans before making his way to the ring. When he got in the ring and faced Austin Theory and Pat McAfee, the former US champion started to address him when he was cut-off by The Rock in a typical manner, where he told Austin to “shut his bi**h a** up”.

As expected, Theory made the unwise decision to attack The Great One, who absorbed a few shots to the head. However, The Rock wasn’t also delivered a devastating People’s Elbow to Theory, sending the fans into a frenzy. The Rock’s appearance on SmackDown last night wasn’t advertised before the show, making his return more memorable. The last time fans had the opportunity to witness The Great One was in 2019. We can only hope that he stays around for a while longer before eventually going on another hiatus
