Young Rock season 2 images highlight WWE icons The Undertaker, Steve Austin, and Triple H. The NBC sitcom, which follows Dwayne Johnson through different periods of his life, announced heading into season 2 that it would include actors portraying legendary WWE wrestlers while shedding light on Johnson’s early wrestling career. Young Rock season 2 episode 8, titled “Corpus Christi” and debuting on May 3, will examine Johnson’s tryout match with WWE, which took place in 1996 at a live event in Corpus Christi, Texas. And, naturally, given the episode’s focus, several WWE headliners will be making appearances.
