Erick Redbeard Opens Up About Having Historic Match With The Rock WWE

A former WWE star has opened up about having a historic match with The Rock.

At WrestleMania 32, The Rock defeated Erick Rowan in what was the shortest match in WrestleMania history at a mere six seconds.

Speaking to Dr. Chris Featherstone of Sportskeeda Wrestling, Erick Redbeard revealed the reason behind WWE choosing him to face The Rock at the event.

He said:

“It was a 101k+ people. They wanted to give him a record. Shortest match in WrestleMania history at the time. I think it still stands but I’m not sure. Who’s gonna take the loss out of The Wyatt Family? Braun Strowman, the undefeated black sheep? Or Bray Wyatt, the leader? Well, obviously me. It was a fun segment, like you’re toe-to-toe with The Great One. You wish you would have gotten a couple shots, a punch. But that’s what the business wants.”

Erick continued on to talk about how the experience was for him, saying:

“Me? It was better than being on my second or third Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal. The way it was, that’s what they wanted. That’s what they got, and it was a great experience.”

In the same interview, Erick Redbeard also revealed that he is interested in a return to WWE.

Meanwhile, The Rock may be on his way back to WWE in a long awaited showdown at next year’s WrestleMania 39 event.
