On August 19th, Diesel ran a live stream video on Facebook praising The Rock after the former wrestler voiced his frustrations about certain ‘Fast 8’ male cast members. Although Johnson did not address Diesel directly, fans have speculated the feud to be between both actors for Diesel’s lack of professionalism on set.

In Diesel’s recent Facebook video, the 49-year-old actor tells his fans about how The Rock became a part of the franchise and how great his performances have been. According to the actor, the fans wanted to see him and Johnson working together and Diesel agreed to make that happen for subsequent films to come. ‘Back in the fifth film,’ says Diesel, ‘when I was asked who should I work with, the reason why we brought Dwayne Johnson into ‘Fast 5’ was because of you.’

‘There was a girl named Jan Kelly who said, ‘I would love to see you guys work together on screen.’ So we gave a role that was initially written for Tommy Lee Jones, but we gave it to Dwayne and he shined in it,’ Diesel adds.
