Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson reacts on Twitter about the Most Important Match in WWE ever

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson voiced his opinion for the Most Important WWE match of all time on Twitter.

Responding to one of the tweets from WWE about the most important fight in the history of the business, he said:

“Hogan vs Sheik. NYC. Garden. 1984. (seminal match with historic implications and a legit bounty thrown in the mix).”

Hogan was the challenger to Sheik’s WWF belt. The match at Madison Garden is considered to be one of the many iconic matches to ever take place in WWE. Hogan is an inductee of the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005.

The match crowned Hulk Hogan as the WWF Champion for the first time. He went on to hold the gold for 1,400 days and became an icon of the Rock ‘n’ Wrestling Era. During the fight, Hogan did the unthinkable by escaping the devastating camel clutch of Sheik.
