Michael Saxon On “Are You Serious?”, The Rock Talks Rugby
– This week’s edition of Are You Serious? is highlighted by Michael Saxon, a mid-1980s WWF enhancement wrestler who portrayed himself similar to pop superstar Michael Jackson.

– Speaking to Australian website Courier Mail, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson talked about how tough it is to play rugby.
“I use to live in New Zealand for sometime and I went to school in New Zealand and I played rugby. I have been very lucky, I played American football for a very long time, American professional wrestling for a very long time and had my fair share of action in Hollywood … there is no tougher sport than rugby,” Johnson said.
“And for those who have played it and understand the game know what I am talking about and those who don’t and I have this argument with my American buddies all the time who are great football players and I tell them ‘so as amazing as you are in football I want you to take all your pads off including your helmet and go play the game and see how long you last’. So no I don’t wish I was playing.”
