2 Fast 2 Forever #287 – Young Rock: Season 3
With Young Rock moving to an inconvenient time slot, we decided to wait for its third season to fully wrap before we chatted about it. With the entire season now streaming on Peacock, we brought in Nate Milton (The Kings of Sport, POST Wrestling, The Lituation Room) as our resident “The Rock expert” to officially usher us into the Attitude Era. We review the wrestler portrayals, discuss the extent to which Young Rock is a vanity project for Dwayne Johnson, and find we all have the same favorite character. We talk about the show’s faming device falling apart a bit, explore how intertwined this show is with the WWF/WWE, and wonder how much longer this show will run. (Will we ever get a Vin Diesel portrayal in the Fast Five era?!) Nate shares his thoughts on Fast X. We pitch a spinoff “Young Hobbs.”
