What is a "Jabroni?" The Rock explains


Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has addressed the meaning behind one of his most famous catchphrases, "Jabroni."

When asked of the meaning of the word Tuesday on Twitter by NFL player Chad Ochocinco, he wrote, "Jabroni was a term I started using to describe a phony, goof, punk or a ham & egger. #NoCandyAssJabronis."

Taz was calling people Jabronis back in 1997. The Rock was far from the first person to use it, it was a backstage term that was used in the 80s & 90s.

Bruh, the Rock was in the industry waaaaayyy before Taz and waaayyy before 1997. Do some research...

Oh come on, the Iron Sheik was using the term when the Rock's dad was still wrestling. Go to YouTube and look up Kevin Nash story about the Sheik for a laugh.

Try reading comprehension - Rock never said he was the first person to use the term. He simply states that he started to use the term at some point.

I don't know if I understand Kenneth.

>>The Rock was in the industry waaaaayyy before Taz and waaayyy before 1997.

By in the industry, do you mean around the industry because his father was a wrestler -- or actually wrestling? I believe The Rock debuted in 1995, and Taz debuted in 1987. Taz has definitely been a pro wrestler longer than The Rock...however, clearly The Rock has been around the wrestling business longer (since he was a kid) because so many in his family, such as Rocky Johnson, are pro wrestlers.

This is not an insult or a personal attack Kenneth, I am just unclear about your answer and would like clarification. Thanks
