WWE Champion Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson appeared on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and plugged WrestleMania 29 right out of the gate as he spoke about what he's training for. Rock noted that he will be shooting Hercules in May.

Rock also spoke about having his first wrestling match in 1996. He said the match was in Corpus Christi in a Raw dark match against Brooklyn Brawler in front of 15,000 people. Rock said WWE thought he had wrestled before, but he had to borrow gear just to do the match. You can view the video at

Powell's POV: Kimmel jokingly questioned what drives Rock when he already knows the outcome of his match with John Cena. Rock said it's phony when he loses and real when he wins. There was WWE talk and WrestleMania was plugged, but there was no sign of the WWE Championship. The first two video clips feature WWE talk and the third video focusses on G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
