The Rock posted a photo and message about top indy star Ricochet (Prince Puma) on Instagram. Here is what he wrote:
Came across this amazing post from a man who's out there grindin' and chasing that greatness. Thank you so much @kingricochet for your kind words. I'm a lucky dude to have had the success I did in the world of pro-wrestling. A world that I grew up in and will forever be in my blood. I'm honored to be your inspiration as you go down that long hard road for success. Remember these important things: Always stay above the garbage of backstage politics and always give the audience what they want. Whether you're a heel or baby face - going over or doing a job. Doesn't matter.. always give them what they want. And most important.. HAVE FUN! Wish you all the success in the world brother and hope you become a big star in our business. I've seen a few of your matches - you're an incredibly gifted/athletic worker. Keep workin' hard and chasing your greatness. And I thought I was cool doing a little candy ass forward roll into an arm bar. 😂 👊🏾 #Repost @kingricochet ・・・ Anyone that knows me knows how much #therock has influenced me. He's literally the reason I wanted to become a wrestler. He had it all, the look, the mic skills, the charisma, the in ring work. He was a 10x world champion but he wasn't afraid to lose. He knew how to work a crowd, he could make them hate him then love him then by the end hate him again. And still to this day he continues to inspire me to be better in every way. There will never be another like him. There's a reason why he was called "The Great One."
SmackDown Superstar Rhyno was recently successful in his bid to win the primary to become Michigan State Representative of the 15th district, with 38% of the vote over two other candidates. There has been much speculation as to the future of Rhyno in WWE while campaigning rolls on.
Rhyno confirmed that he will continue wrestling while campaigning:
“Wrestling is my job, you know sports entertainment. It’s a passion of mine. It’s a great vehicle where I can motivate and inspire people. Kids look up to me, adults look up to you and I wouldn’t want to walk away from that now.”
