During His WWE Days, The Rock Was Very Anal About His Egg Whites

During his WWE days, The Rock would go to restaurants and separate his own eggs.

Only a man who nicknamed himself "The Great One" and "The People's Champion" could get away with this.

On the newest episode of the hugely popular Something To Wrestle podcast co-hosted by Conrad Thompson and Bruce Prichard, we learned that back in his old WWF days, The Rock was very particular about his egg whites.

During the show, which covered Dwayne Johnson's explosion in popularity during 1997 and 1998, Prichard, who worked as Vince McMahon's right-hand man in the company from the mid '80s until 2008, revealed that when The Rock would order egg whites at Waffle House, he wouldn't let a cook separate the eggs. He had to do it himself.

Here's how Prichard explained this power move:

"He also used to like to stop at Waffle House and he would get a dozen eggs and he would ask them for a glass and he would crack and separate his own egg whites.

'Bring me the 12 eggs' and then he would separate the eggs and then sometimes if they knew who he was, sometimes he’d go back and cook his own eggs, but he would have his chicken breast and his egg whites, but he liked to crack his own eggs and separate them because I guess he didn’t trust them."

And that's why he's The Rock.
