#TBT On very light tackle it took me an hour to bring this 200lb beauty in. Took me another 15 minutes to gently revive him in the water before me and my bud Captain Brian Sanders released him. #UsFloridaCountryBoys #GettinItDone #AllDay #EveryDay #TarponToldMeToKissHisAssAsHeSwamAway

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson never backed down from a fight in the ring, and he took that mentality to a new level on Throwback Thursday. The former "People's Champion" got into a different kind of wrestling match, hauling in a 200 pound tarpon. Johnson posted the picture on his Instagram account, explaining that it took an hour to actually reel in the massive creature.
While Johnson could have allowed us to finally smell what The Rock was cooking, he instead opted to revive and release the tarpon. It's just another instance of the The Rock laying the smack down on another hopeless opponent.
