During one of his recent episodes, Joe Rogan called out Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson for what he feels is a deliberate misrepresentation of the use of steroids on the part of the athlete. "The Rock should come clean right now," Rogan said with a laugh.
"He should make a video in response to the Liver King video." Rogan then did an impromptu impression of Johnson, adding: "I need to talk to you because The Rock's been lying." He adds, "There's not a f**king chance in hell he's clean.
Not a chance in hell. As big as the Rock is, at 50?...He's so massive, and he's so different than he was when he was 30." As Rogan noted, for people with certain physiques, the importance of being honest with your audience when it comes to achieving your goals is of paramount importance.
"If you don't want to talk about it, that's one thing," Rogan said. "But if you do talk about it, there's a responsibility you have to people that are listening to you and I think you have to be honest about it, which is why I'm honest about it.
I don't think there's anything wrong with taking hormone replacement....I don't think it's wrong, I think it's smart, but you've got to be honest...When Mickey Rourke did The Wrestler he told everybody."
Did Dwayne Johnson ever take steroids in the past?
"I tried it," Johnson previously admitted to MTV in 2009.
"Me and my buddies tried it back in the day when I was 18 or 19. Didn't know what we were doing...It's not as prevalent today in our sports as it was 10 years ago, but we have to recognize that a culture was created where it was OK to do that, and a lot of team managers, owners, players who didn't do it would turn the other cheek. We recognize that, and now we have to institute stronger penalties, which we are doing."
