Dwayne Johnson Talks About When He Was Choked Out By A UFC Veteran On Set

The Rock talks about his experience with a UFC veteran on a movie set. Solid!

WWE superstar and now world-renowned actor, Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, is a living legend. On set for one of his films, he was lucky enough to meet the old UFC fighter, Jason ‘Dooms’ Day. During a fight scene, the MMA veteran had to take The Rock in a rear naked choke hold. The scene as described by the actor is magical.

‘There’s a fight scene that I have with Jason Day. Jason is a big son of a b**ch. Nickname when he fought in the UFC was Doomsday. You don’t get a nickname like Doomsday by walking into the cage with cupcakes. We wind up having Jason put me in a rear naked choke hold. We did a couple of takes and I went back, and I looked at the replay and I said, ‘why don’t we do one more?’ We get down, he puts me in the rear naked choke and he sinks the s**t out of this thing. My lights go out and it takes me a minute to come through.  It was a beautiful scene, but I would not recommend it to anybody out there. It’s not fun to get choked out.’

Turns out there’s a fine line between MMA and WWE.
