The Godfather On Why The Rock Stopped Traveling With Him

WWE Hall of Famer The Godfather was recently the guest on the Such Good Shoot podcast. During the interview The Godfather revealed why The Rock stopped traveling with him.

“One day Rocky came to me and said, ‘Hey, Papa, I can’t ride with you no more. I’m like, ‘What do you mean you can’t ride with me no f–king more?’ He goes, ‘Bruh, everywhere I go I smell like weed and I’m telling people I don’t smell like weed. And then the next time they see me, they say every time I see you you say you don’t smell like weed, but you smell like weed!’”

“As soon as I got in the car, bro, as soon as I got in the f–king car, I’m firing up [smoking] all the way to the building, you know. And so, bro, I’m not gonna stop smoking, so that’s when I started riding with Ron [Simmons] and John [Bradshaw Layfield], The Acolytes, and then him [The Rock], D’Lo and Mark Henry started riding together.”
