You don’t mess with The Rock.

Trolling Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is never a good move, as one Twitter user found after tweeting the actor about his new film.

James McMahon learned first-hand what it’s like to take on The Rock when he criticised the way Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle deals with deaths of the video game characters.

Those worried about spoilers can look away now.

McMahon wrote: “There is no way a character in a video game would lose a life, then be respawned still in possession of the item required to win. That’s some bullshit. What say you @TheRock? Otherwise it was quite good.”

The Rock, who is also a semi-retired professional wrestler, responded with a verbal smackdown telling McMahon to “kindly go f*** yourself”.

He said: “Actually my friend, in the JUMANJI Lore Handbook, it clearly states in article 72 of section 7, that ‘any character who loses a life, shall return to their original state with any item they possessed at the time of their demise’. So kindly go f*** yourself James.”

Some may have been wounded by the response but not McMahon, who praised The Rock for being “the greatest human”.

The 45-year-old actor responded again in a more positive tone, saying: “I mean thankfully we always have the trusted Jumanji handbook for the rules lol.”

This led McMahon to declare that he was actually a fan of the wrestler, saying: “I haven’t loved you this much since WrestleMania 18.”

Naturally, this went down like fire on the internet.
