I can’t believe the first two responses are from New Yorkers that aren’t WWF fans. :slight_smile:

I thought it was some obscure reference to the movie! :o

Thanks Moosie! I did too!!! Guess not…

I always thought it was a visual catch phrase some wrestlers use. Wrestlers need to “get over” (slang meaning become popular) with the fans, so they create a combination of attitude and catch phrases to distinguish themself from other wrestlers. Hulk Hogan mentioned his 24" pythons (minds out of the gutter, he was talking about his biceps), his three demandments for Hulkamaniacs, as well as posing for the crowd based on the merit of their cheering, not to mention Hulking Out (being beat up badly, only to bounce back stronger than ever, beating the other wrestler). The crowd loved it when he did this, which got him over with the fans The Rock has several catch phrases (“If you smell what the Rock is cookin’” , “Layeth the smacketh down” ,“Roody-poo candy-ass” just to name a few.) He also has a visual catch phrase of arching his eyebrow. The fans love it, so he does it, thereby “getting over”.

I will fairly much agree with Twin. It is something that few people can impersonate. It is hard to raise the one eyebrow like that. It is a trademark Rock gimic. Just like the DX crotch cross or whatever you call it.

It has apparently indeared him to the fans. They like his arrogant attitude so much that even when he tells someone “It does not matter what your name is.” they cheer.

Even when he is wearing his sunglasses you can see the eyebrow raise.


yeah yeah, Spock did it first. :slight_smile:

He’s trying to look ironic and amused.

Unfortunatly, he looks like he has a fishhook caught in his eyebrow.

You say “cheesy” like that’s a BAD thing.


You think you can come in here, question The Rock’s gimmicks, and act like The Rock needs to respond to you?? Well The Rock says this: If you would just know you role, and shut your mouth, you can hear the millions . . . and millions of The Rock’s fans chanting his name . . .

::: Rocky . . . Rocky . . . Rocky :::

I’ll tell you what The Rock’s gonna do - The Rock’s gonna take that question of yours, he’s gonna shine it up real nice, then he’s gonna turn that sumbitch sideways - and shove it straight up your candy ass! Now then, anytime you want to go one on one with the Great One, you can just stroll down KnowYourRole Blvd, make that left turn at Jabroni Drive, and check yourself into the SmackDown Hotel!

What the heck is a Jabroni anyway ?

A jabroni is another name for a jobber, or a wrestler who never wins matches and simply exists to put other people over. Basically, what The Rock is saying when he calls someone that is that he’s a loser who can’t possibly compete with him.

The term has been in use in wrestling for some time, although I can’t remember who originated it.

Ah, the most electrifying man in sports entertainment today!

Oh, Hell Yeah! (Ooops, wrong rassler’s catch phrase…)

Of course, pretty much everyone in the organization is arrogant as all get out (Excepting maybe the female MacMahons…), but the People’s Champ also displays a real sense of style. He stands out not because of his arrogant attitude, he stands out because, by God, he has reason to be arrogant.

I am more of a WCW fan myself, but the Rock did wonders for his career by breaking from The Nation of Domination. He was supposed to be a heel (a bad guy) but he got such a huge fan support that he became good.

Yes he is arrogant, but I do like his character.


Don’t worry StrTrkr,
He will be bad again for a while and then switch over again. They always do. Thats how the story is written.
