The Rock WrestleMania 32 Dwayne Johnson

TMZ Sports spoke to WWE executive Triple H this week, who revealed that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson invented The People’s Elbow move as a way to try and make The Undertaker laugh. You can check out a clip from that interview below.

Triple H stated on the origin of the legendary move, “I believe the first time Rock did The People’s Elbow was in a match where we were tryna make ‘Taker crack.” He added, “It absolutely started [as a joke] and then it was getting huge reaction and everybody went with it.”

Additionally, Triple H referenced The Undertaker’s legendary hatred for cucumbers and a rib that was played on Undertaker. It involved filling up a casket for a casket match with cucumbers. So, whenever Undertaker looked into the casket, it would be filled with cucumbers, and Taker would just “lose his mind” over it.
