The Undertaker sees the “People’s Champion” as a man that could unite the nation if he actually ran for office.
Undertaker spoke with TMZ Sports and talked about The Rock’s potential for bringing the country together if he gave serious consideration about running for President. The Rock has said himself it’s something he thought about before (and it’s actually a fictional plot device in ‘Young Rock’), but Undertaker says his former adversary could do some real good if he put his mind to enter politics.
“You know what? I’ll tell you what about Rock—what a success story he is, not given to him. That man works his tail off and he dives in wholeheartedly into everything that he does. If he gets his mindset that he wants to make a run at politics, you know what? I think he’ll do it. I don’t know where he sits on a lot of his policies,” Taker said, “but I know when he has the will and the determination to do something, he usually does it.”
Undertaker said if his friend could bring people together it would be a success “on that part alone”, and said he believes The Rock could actually do it and he’d support him all the way.
“He’s so charming, he’s so witty, I think he can be the uniter that people are looking for. I know that he has the charisma, and maybe all it would take would be one eyebrow, and he’d look at the left, raise the eyebrow. Look at the right, raise an eyebrow and hit ’em with ‘the People’s Elbow.’ I don’t know man, there’s so many possibilities and if that’s what he chooses to do,” Taker said, “I’ll support him wholeheartedly in his efforts to do so.”
Undertaker also said he’s not sure what the country would call him, joking that he’d hope he had enough clout to still call him Rock or Jabroni instead of President Johnson, adding that he’d probably call in a pardon or two.
