The Rock gives the USWNT a pep talk (Video)

USWNT Motivated by 2011 Loss to Japan

The United States women's national team has reached the Women's World Cup Final, and are looking to defeat Japan to win their record third trophy.

Everyone is jumping on the bandwagon, including The Rock who took a break from his workout in his iron paradise to give the team a bit of a pep talk even though he wouldn't label it that.

"I told coach Jill Ellis that I was going to reach out to you personally, send you a video, this is not a video to inspire you in anyway, you guys are already inspired," The Rock says. "This video is to let you know how much you've inspired me.

"Not only have you inspired me, and I hope you're feeling this next part, but you've inspired an entire country through your passion, through your discipline, through your dedication, through your hard ass work and what I believe is one of the stingiest defenses in recored history."

The Rock added: "I want you to go out against Japan and get out on this field and remember this, you're the greatest in the world at what you do."

The Rock finishes up with: "At the end of the day you're 23 of the biggest bad asses walking God's green earth."

Sounds like a pep talk to me. Now I'm all fired up, I need to go rip a phone book or something.
