The history between The Rock and Randy Orton
WWE SmackDown Live will be moving to FOX in a matter of hours, and the company has done everything in its power to turn it into a memorable affair. The show will see a string of WWE legends and Hall of Famers returning to the ring. Recently, The Rock confirmed that he will be at the show.
Back in 2004, The Rock quietly disappeared from WWE to focus on his Hollywood career. At WrestleMania 20, he teamed up with Mick Foley to take on Evolution, consisting of Ric Flair, Randy Orton, and Batista.
Soon after, he appeared in a segment with Randy Orton on an episode of Monday Night RAW. The segment saw The Rock laying down a verbal barrage on Orton, before launching an attack on the young gun. He was interrupted by RAW GM Eric Bischoff, who called in security to escort The Rock out of the arena.
