It’s like just being back in the WWE as Dave Bautista claims that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is not a good actor.

He took this shot as The Rock during a recent interview with Tampa Bay Times and it’s pretty surprising.

However, it’s not all bad. He did also say that he had a lot of respect for his former WWE colleague.

Here’s what Bautista had to say about Dwayne Johnson:

“There is something about him that’s really special. I’d never take that away from him. Would I consider him a great actor? F*** no.”

Bautista has really shown people how good an actor he is in the like of Guardians of The Galaxy, Blade Runner 2049 and even Spectre.

He’s really been impressive in the roles he’s taken on and he’s about to star in Denis Villeneuve’s Dune.

However, he wasn’t done yet.

He went on to explain his beef with wrestlers-turned-actors such as Johnson and John Cena.

(The Rock and John Cena) are wrestlers who became movie stars. I’m something else. I was a wrestler. Now, I’m an actor. (The Rock and John Cena) are wrestlers who became movie stars. I’m something else. I was a wrestler. Now, I’m an actor.
