PRO WRESTLING aficionados get ready a very special episode of @NBC’s YOUNG ROCK airs THIS TUESDAY!

1996: Backstage.
@WWE locker room.
Rocky Maivia meets The Ringmaster for the first time.

I had never wrestled an actual real match in my life, so on this night in front of 15,000 rabid and wild pro wrestling fans – I was thrown headfirst into the fire to see if I could take the heat and survive.

This night changed my life forever.

Of course, I would eventually drop the name “Rocky Maivia” (which I hated) and become known only as THE ROCK.

And “The Ringmaster” would eventually drop his name (which he hated) and become known as the one and only, STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN
