Vin Diesel Says He’d Whoop The Rock

Is this rivalry fake or not? Last year, The Rock called out a Fast and Furious cast member for being a “candy ass.” That actor turned out to be Vin Diesel.

Now comes word that Diesel says he’d “flex on The Rock.” UFC fighter Tyron Woodley told a story about how Diesel told him he’d beat The Rock.

I find that hard to believe. The Rock outweighs him by what, 50 pounds, at least. Also, maybe 6″ taller. Diesel needs to shut up before he gets reaccommodated.

Their beef goes back to Diesel’s supposed unprofessionalism. He’d always show up to the set late. The Rock and Diesel even had it out in a trailer. At the time, The Rock said:

My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken s**t to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses. When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I’m not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling – you’re right.

There were also rumors that The Rock couldn’t take having less screen time that Diesel. Ultimately, he realized that Fast and Furious was Diesel’s series and ceded screen time to him.

Then, the two stars refused to do press together for Fate of the Furious. But, no matter how much you hate someone, if you get half a billion dollars waved under your nose, you’ll bury the hatchet like these two did.
