In a special virtual event with Universal TV, Universal Studio Group and Ghetto Film School, Diaspora’s Dino-Ray Ramos chatted with the team of NBC’s Young Rock including Dwayne Johnson (Executive Producer), Nahnatchka Khan (Executive Producer), Jeff Chiang (Executive Producer), Hiram Garcia (Executive Producer), Jen Carreras (Executive Producer), Chavo Guerreo Jr. (Wrestling Coordinator), Jamie Gross (Editor) and Jeffrey Walker (Director). They dissected one particular scene from the series based on Johnson’s life — and that was the Battle Royale scene from episode 6 of the first season titled “My Day with Andre”.
Watch the scene below.
There’s A LOT going on in the scene and it is wildly uncanny how some of the actors look exactly like legendary wrestlers from the time: Andre the Giant, the Wild Samoans, Macho Man Randy
Savage and the Iron Sheik. Also, shout out to the choice of music.
Nonetheless, you can watch a preview of the panel below and watch the full panel here.
