During filming of the WWE wrestling scenes between Paige and A.J. Lee's characters, fans kept chanting the name of "C.M. Punk
" (A.J.'s real life husband, who quit WWE on less-than-amicable terms in 2014). In response to the chants, Dwayne Johnson
called Punk on his phone from the middle of the ring, and left a voicemail, telling Punk that 15,000 fans were chanting his name at the Staples Center. Backstage, WWE producer Paul Levesque
was said to be seething at Punk's non-pre-approved mention, reportedly telling audio technicians, "Cut his mic, cut his mic. Doesn't he realize we're in a lawsuit with this guy?". A visibly annoyed Rock was then heard telling a crew member at ringside, "Tell them, they better not cut my mic." Soon after, Levesque & Vince McMahon
sent a referee out to tell The Rock to stop making C.M. Punk references, even though this was taking place after Monday Night RAW had gone off the air. Dwayne later said of the incident, "I work off instinct, always listen to the people and try to give them something special. Huge positive feedback from the fans. Fun night". See more
