Speaking on Something To Wrestle, Bruce Prichard spoke about the time The Rock backed Ahmed Johnson down during a heated confrontation backstage:
“It was in the dressing room. Ahmed was complaining about something, and Rock just kind of, basically, ‘If you want to go, let’s go.’ Ahmed backed down and nobody was stopping anybody in that one. I was there in the dressing room for that. Again, it’s a lot of that much ado about nothing, but, yea, so when you hear the D’Lo thing you say, ‘Yeah, I can see that. D’Lo is a tough son of a b*tch…The Rock is up there in the top 5 guys you would never want to mess with,” said Prichard.
