All that recent beef could be leading to the ring
Vin Diesel and The Rock could be on their way to fighting it out at Wrestlemania next year, after reports suggest their recent arguing has all been a stunt.
Rumours of a rift between the two Fast And Furious actors began when Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson posted on Instagram after filming for the eighth installment of the franchise finished.
Writing in the Instagram caption, Johnson said: “…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.”
This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8. 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

According to Life & Style, the drama has all been a hoax, with the pair set to take to the ring in 2017. An unnamed source has declared that the actors “are playing a huge prank, and it’s all for publicity.”
The alleged insider continued, “The Rock convinced Vin to amp up the drama between them so they could turn it into a WWE match to help promote the April 2017 release of ‘Fast 8.'” According to Yahoo! WWE’s Wrestlemania 33 event takes place on 2 April 2017 – less than two weeks before ‘Fast 8’ opens on 14 April, which could be the reason for the stunt.
Fast And Furious 8 is set for release on April 14, 2017. Joining franchise regulars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham in the eighth instalment are Charlize Theron, Helen Mirren and Suicide Squad’s Scott Eastwood. Kurt Russell is reprising his role as Frank Petty from last year’s Fast & Furious 7.
