Mark Sinclair and Dwayne Johnson — better known as “Vin Diesel” and “The Rock” to their adoring fans— reportedly did not get along or play nicely on the set of “The Fate of the Furious,” as evidenced in an instagram post where The Rock allegedly referred to Vin Diesel as a “candy ass.” Though their feud was reportedly quashed enough for them to agree to star alongside each other in two more Fast and Furious movies, it may be renewed thanks to UFC fighter Tyron Woodley.


Woodley once publicly stated he would bet on The Rock over Vin Diesel in a hypothetical knock-down, drag out fistfight. And during the premiere for “Guardians of the Galaxy II” on April 25 in TK, Vin Diesel reportedly told Woodley he could “flex on The Rock” in a fight any day, Woodley told TMZ:

So how do the two mountains of muscle actually match up?

Vin Diesel is six feet tall, which mean’s he’s five inches shorter than the Rock and, according to Maxim, the Rock likely outweighs Vin Diesel by 40 pounds. It doesn’t help that Diesel’s also five years older. Plus, before they were actors, The Rock was a WWE wrestler; Vin Diesel was just a bouncer before he got his big break in a 20-minute short titled “Multi-Facial.”

But even without the fighting experience, the Rock is a massive dude. That’s why 90% of the readers surveyed in this (incredibly scientific) Esquire poll chose Johnson over Diesel in a fight.

But in a fight between Vin Diesel and the Rock, we think the winner actually would be John Cena: there’s no way he wouldn’t join them in this epic of a celebrity cage match.

With a legal fight challenge mounting from state governments over the Trump administration's use of a national emergency to construct at the U.S.-Mexico border, the president has kicked his push for the barrier into high gear.

On Wednesday, President Trump tweeted a time-lapse video of wall construction in New Mexico; the next day, he proclaimed that "THE WALL IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION RIGHT NOW"

But there's a big problem: The footage, which was filmed more than five months ago on Sep. 18, 2018, isn't really new wall construction at all, and certainly not part of the ongoing construction of "the wall" that Trump has been haggling with Congress over.
