"The Rock" Dwayne Johnson is the biggest star attraction of this generation and he has been part of all the Wrestlemania events since his return in the company in the year 2011.
We have seen The Rock having segments and matches with the existing WWE stars in previous Wrestlemania PPVs. However, this time around the planning is something totally different and we will witness a new dimension of Hollywood-WWE connection.
The Rock was shooting his latest movie Fast and Furious 8 and posted a video on his Instagram account. He has called some of his male co-stars “chicken s**ts" because they have not conducted professionally on the sets. No direct names were taken.
The post went viral and The Life and Style reported that the Rock was actually referring to his co-star Vin Diesel, the face of the fast and Furious franchise.

There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredible hard working crew. UNIVERSAL has been great partners as well. My female co-stars are always amazing and I love 'em. My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't. The ones that don't are too chicken shit to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses. When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I'm not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling - you're right. Bottom line is it'll play great for the movie and fits this Hobbs character that's embedded in my DNA extremely well. The producer in me is happy about this part😉. Final week on FAST 8 and I'll finish strong. #IcemanCometh #F8 #ZeroToleranceForCandyAsses</a></p> <p style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px; margin-bottom:0; margin-top:8px; overflow:hidden; padding:8px 0 7px; text-align:center; text-overflow:ellipsis; white-space:nowrap;">A video posted by therock (@therock) on <time style=" font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px;" datetime="2016-08-08T18:26:19+00:00">Aug 8, 2016 at 11:26am PDT</time></p></div></blockquote>

It was also reported that, there was nothing personal going on between the two biggest stars of Hollywood and these are all stunts to promote the 8th installment of the fast and Furious movie.
In addition, it was informed that we will see a confrontation between The Rock and Vin Diesel in the 33rd anniversary of Wrestlemania. WWE is trying to make the most of this Rock-Vin Diesel rivalry that is running rampant on the rumor mill.
There's a good chance of the confrontation to happen since the movie will be released during next year's Wrestlemania season. The movie will be released on April 12th, worldwide whereas Wrestlemania will be hosted live from the Citrus Bowl of Orlando on April 2nd.
So, an early showdown between the Rock and Vin Diesel will definitely promote the movie to a larger audience.
