Vin Diesel Allegedly Said That He Would ‘Flex On’ The Rock in a Fight

We’re not so sure about that, Vin.

The feud between The Fate of the Furious stars Vin Diesel and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson may blow back up again following UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley’s claim on TMZ Sports that Diesel told him he could “flex on The Rock” in a fight. 

Their tumultuous relationship has been well-publicized since one of The Rock’s Instagram posts about filming on the Fast 8 set went viral.

This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8. There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredible hard working crew. UNIVERSAL has been great partners as well. My female co-stars are always amazing and I love 'em. My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't. The ones that don't are too chicken shit to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses. When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I'm not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling – you're right. Bottom line is it'll play great for the movie and fits this Hobbs character that's embedded in my DNA extremely well. The producer in me is happy about this part😉. Final week on FAST 8 and I'll finish strong. #IcemanCometh #F8 #ZeroToleranceForCandyAsses

In the caption, the former pro wrestler commented on some of his male co-stars’ “chicken shit” ways and proceeded to call Vin a “candy ass” because of the Fast 8 actor and producer’s actions on set.

They’ve since resolved their beef, but given the buff-and-bald dudes’ massive egos, it could flame back up again after they get word of Woodley’s anecdote.

Woodley explained that, at a premiere party for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2he and Diesel disagreed on who would win in a fight. 

“I said [in a fight between Diesel] and The Rock… I’d give it to The Rock,” Woodley recalled. “So [Diesel] pulled up on me, not in a violent way, and said, ‘Come on man, I’d flex on The Rock.'” 

We’re inclined to side with Woodley given his obvious expertise in cage fighting and martial arts. But let’s humor Diesel and mock up a tale of the tape, UFC-style. 

  • 49-year-old Vin Diesel stands six feet tall, making him five inches shorter and five years older than The Rock. 
  • He also probably weighs in at around 225 pounds, which is nowhere close to the bulging 265 pounds The Rock says he hit to play Hobbs in Fast 8. 
  • And because of the height discrepancy, we’re going to go out on a limb (get it?) and chalk up the reach advantage to The Rock as well.

Vin—we hope you were joking. You’d get destroyed.
