– WWE will be heavily promoting The Rock’s new movie “Pain & Gain” at WrestleMania Axxess, with several stars from the film making appearances at the fan fest.
– WWE champion “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and “Live with Kelly & Michael” on Wednesday morning to promote the new “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” movie.
On Good Morning America, Rock talked about being a huge fan of G.I. Joe and Star Wars as a kid, his co-star Channing Tatum being named “World Sexiest Man” as well as his favorite part of getting into shape for the movies – his epic “cheat days.” They wheeled out a cart of what The Rock eats on his cheat days – including a dozen pancakes, double-dough pizza (2 pies on top of each other) and brownies that have peanut butter cookies inside of them.
On Live With Kelly & Michael, The Rock spoke a lot about WWE, including the significance of WrestleMania returning home to the New York Market and why he returned to WWE. He also presented host Michael Strahan with a replica WWE Title belt. Here’s video of the appearance:
