Shawn Stasiak Reflects on Memorable WWE Match with The Rock Post-9/11

In a recent interview with Nick Hausman of Haus of Wrestling, former WWE wrestler Shawn Stasiak reminisced about his match against Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson on a post-9/11 episode of WWE Smackdown.

The bout occurred just two days after the tragic 9/11 attacks.

Stasiak humorously referred to himself as the "Wile E. Coyote" of WWE, acknowledging his role as a comical character at the time.

He cherished the opportunity to share the ring with The Rock, the WCW World Heavyweight Champion.

Stasiak expressed his wish for a more extended collaboration with The Rock but understood that history had its own plans.

The post-9/11 episode was both patriotic and somber, with Stasiak acknowledging the weight of representing freedom during a challenging time. 

Despite the fear and anxiety that gripped the nation, the match brought some much-needed laughter and smiles to wrestling fans, offering a brief escape from the tension.

In retrospect, Stasiak's match with The Rock remains a cherished memory, symbolizing a moment of unity and entertainment during a difficult period in American history.
