Ja Morant caught a stray from Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson on Friday's episode of WWE SmackDown in Memphis, Tennessee. Johnson, who was playing the bad guy role, took a shot at Morant by bringing up his past issues on gun use on social media while performing a mini-concert.

"The Rock" returned to his previous heel character for his feud with Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 40 next month. He will team up with his cousin and Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns to take on their rivals in a Tag Team Match in the main event of Night 1.

"The Rock" sang about Morant on WWE SmackDown:

"You're simply an embarrassment, son. Just like Ja Morant when he's waving a gun. I love you, Ja!"

In fairness to Morant, he was a good sport as he responded to "The Rock" using a 50 Cent meme, which was appropriate for the situation. It was the 50 Cent "What I Do" meme that was from his rant about Floyd Mayweather many years ago.

Morant is currently out of action, as he's recovering from shoulder surgery. He returned from suspension in December but was ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering a separated shoulder in January.

Ja Morant has been suspended twice by the NBA due to his gun use.

Ja Morant was the main headline in the NBA last season due to a couple of gun-related incidents. The first one happened in Denver following the Memphis Grizzlies' loss to the Nuggets. He went viral for waving a gun inside a club, so the league punished him by suspending him for eight games.

Morant returned just in time to help the Grizzlies make the playoffs as the second seed in the West, but the LA Lakers had too much size and eliminated the Grizzlies in six games.

During early offseason, the athletic guard was caught on his friend's Instagram live waving a gun again. The NBA put its foot down and severely punished one of its most bankable stars.

The 24-year-old superstar was suspended for 25 games to start the season, which essentially put the Grizzlies on the back foot. He returned on Dec. 19 and led his team to a win over the New Orleans Pelicans.

Memphis was 6-3 in the nine games Morant played this season before he suffered a shoulder injury in practice and was ruled out for the rest of the campaign on Jan. 8.
