The Godfather Reveals Why The Rock Stopped Travelling With Him In WWE
The Rock worked with Godfather in the Nation Of Domination
The Godfather has revealed that The Rock stopped travelling with him between WWE shows because of his use of marijuana.
The Godfather - Charles Wright - and The Rock worked together in WWE as part of The Nation Of Domination between 1997 and 1998, with the duo driving to different shows together.
Wright is an advocate for marijuana use and freely admits to smoking during car rides between shows. It was this use of weed that led to the Rock telling the Godfather he couldn't travel with him any more.
Speaking on the Such Good Shoot podcast, he said: "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***ing 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***ing 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."
