In a WWF no Mercy Match in Cleveland, Ohio in 1999, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson hit the British Bulldog with a Rock Bottom in a pile of dog poop.
As the story goes, the British Bulldog made a return to the WWE and instantly had a feud with The Rock and in turn had The Rock challenging Bulldog to a Dog Poo Match.
The goal of the match was for one opponent to slam their opponent onto a tray of dog poop that was very real!
Well, The Rock won.
Appearing on the Heavy Live With Scoop B Show, I spoke with the British Bulldog’s daughter, Georgia J. Smith about the whole ordeal. “It was a little embarrassing at school,” Smith told me.
“Because my dad would come pick me up or whatever and people would be like, “The Rock Rock-Bottomed him in dog poop…” whispering to each other and I was like, ‘Oh God.’ And it was real dog feces. I didn’t know that. And The Rock actually told me that a couple of years ago. I was like, ‘That was fake!’ and he said, “No. That was real. We could smell it from so far away. And your dad was getting all ready for the match; baby oil, pumping up and stretching and he’s like, that’s dog s—t! I’m going to have to be Rock-bottomed in THAT? And your dad’s face just dropped…” He was like, ‘Oh my God’… but you know, he did it. But I thought it was fake feces or whatever… Nope! It was real! [laughing] and I guess he was told last minute and he was like, ‘What?!!?’”
The British Bulldog had success in both the WWE and the WCW. He was the WWF’s Intercontinental Champions, the inaugural WWF European Champion and holds the records for longest single reign (206 days) and total days as champion (253).
The British Bulldog died of a heartattack in 2002.
Georgia J. Smith has been proactive in keeping her dad’s legacy alive. Head of ‘The British Bulldog’ Companies She runs the Instagram account and oversees distribution of merchandise.
Bulldog will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2020 and was supposed to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2020 before the global pandemic shut everything down.
In the meantime, it was recently revealed that the British Bulldog will be the subject of the WWE Network’s Documentary Series ‘WWE Icons’ which will be released in 2021.
