The Rock said Triple H was kind to him when he joined WWE in 1996 and noted how they gelled well together in the ring and both went on to have historic careers.

"You were so good to me, so welcoming to me then, but also I knew, I knew of everyone in the locker room that there was a hunger in your eyes. And I knew that we were going to be competitors and we were going to compete and work our asses off and that's exactly what we did," The Rock said.

The Rock also praised Triple H for his work outside the ring at WWE and as the creator of NXT.

"What you've done outside the ring too has been unparalleled. You can't compare it because nobody else has done it," The Rock said.
