Catch Phrase / Dwayne Johnson

Go To

The wrestler formerly known as Rocky Maiv-IT DIDN'T MATTER WHAT HIS NAME WAS! has made the catch phrase an art form. At one point, he had 16-17 Catch Phrases; he would often cut a 5-minute interview consisting entirely of Catch Phrases. It says something when the WWE names one of its shows "SmackDown", derived from one of his trademark phrases. He acknowledges this saying that the program is "The Rock's Show."


He coined so many legendary catchphrases, that we saw fitting to dedicate an entire TVTropes page for it. Behold!

  • If/Do you smell what The Rock is cooking!/? (Former was the beginning of his face theme/used to end promos, Later served as the opening to his entrance theme).
  • The Rock will layeth the smackethdown/lay the smackdown on your candy ass!
  • The Rock says...
  • Shine it up real nice, turn it/that sum-bitch sideways, and stick it straight up your candy ass!
    • ...your rootie/roody poo candy ass!
    • ...your rectum! (At one point, his mother told him she disliked it, so he changed it for her)
  • ...Whip your monkey-ass!
    • ...make your monkey-ass famous!
    • ...whip your monkey-ass all over God's green earth!

  • If you ever... And The Rock means ever...!
    • In a similar vein, The Rock would also do this by presenting a frame of time in which an ultimatum was to be met.
      "Triple H, you have got three seconds — and The Rock means three seconds — to get your monkey ass out here to The Rock's ring, or the Rock is going to come back there, pull you out of your dressing room, and lay the smack down on your candy ass!
  • The Jabroni-beatin', pie-eatin', Hell-raisin', trailblazin', People's Champ!
    • Or, occasionally, the "jabroni-beatin', pie-eatin', trailblazin', Eyebrow-raisin' People's Champ".
    • During one comeback, he flubbed the line completely and it ended up being "The Jabroni-Eatin', Pie-Beatin' Eatin', The Rock says he's walkin' fast, whuppin' ass, People's Champ THE ROCK!"
    • On his return to Raw on February 14, 2011 he named himself as the Jabroni-Beatin', Pie-Eatin', Trailblazin', Eyebrow Raisin', Step off the brake, Foot on the Gas, Always Ready to whup some Ass People's Champ!
    • There also is a fantastic variation of this from a 2003 promo in Toronto, Ontario Canada where he dubbed himself as the Jabroni-Beatin', Pie-Eatin', Trailblazin', Eyebrow Raisin', Stronger than a bear, faster than a buck, the biggest thing to hit Canada 'cause the Maple Leafs suck!
