The Rock is known for pulling pranks and putting people on the spot for fun, but perhaps one of the best things he’s ever done happened last night when called CM Punk live in the ring after WWE RAW went off the air. The Rock happened to be in Los Angeles at The Staples Center due to a production he is part of called Fighting with My Family, which is a story about WWE Superstar Paige and her infamous family from The UK called The Knight Family.

The Rock is actually part of the film, but is mostly a behind-the-scenes person this time as his production company called Seven Bucks Productions is helping to head up the project. They are joined by WWE Studios, which is why WWE allowed the production use a lot of WWE copyrighted material, including the themes of both AJ Lee and Paige for the RAW segment they did last night.

They were recreating Paige’s debut on WWE RAW when she beat AJ Lee for the WWE Diva’s Championship to shock the world. She became the youngest champion in the history of WWE at the time and would go on to have great success on the main roster after having a killer time down in WWE NXT as the inaugural NXT Women’s Champion. The Rock wanted to warm the crowd back up after RAW ended due to them just coming off of a three hour RAW.

This meant he had to do something that would get love from the crowd. What did The Great One do? He actually called Phil Brooks, known to WWE fans as CM Punk. He would not end up getting the Straight Edge Superstar, but he did get his voicemail. This allowed The Rock to leave one of the greatest voicemails one could get.

He would tell Punk that he was live, in the middle of the ring in Staples Center and that what he was doing was not a rib(joke) and asked LA to say hi, which they did. Obviously this was unplanned and done after WWE RAW went off the air, but the video of him doing this went viral, and obviously CM Punk saw all of this and had to respond to it.

This led CM Punk to respond on Twitter, where he said the following.
