Joe Rogan recently had the pleasure of hosting a PED expert of More plates more dates infamy on his podcast. Rogan and Derek discussed a variety of topics including PED use by celebs, fitness models, actors and even UFC athletes.
The two were mainly aiming to discuss the hypocrisy of internet viral star Liver King who had just published an apology to stave off public backlash after a huge list of PEDs he used was leaked by Derek.
While neither Derek or Rogan are opponents of PED use outside of competition settings there’s a question of hypocrisy when you use your biochemically engineered physique to sell a product.
And while many Hollywood stars are rumored to have used PEDs to get the desired physique for a project there are seldom any who would admit it. Mickey Rourke is one of the rare outliers. Rourke openly acknowledged his PED use for academy nominated movie The Wrestler.
This prompted the two to talk about Chris Hemsworth and Dwayne the Rock Johnson.
Dwayne Johnson portrayed Black Adam recently, a character from the DC comics. The Rock received a lot of accolades for his performance in the film, despite the fact that it did not fare well at the box office. Along with his skilled acting, Johnson’s body was a major discussion point among fans. The crowd were astounded that there was no padding present!
“The Rock should come clean right now! He should make a video in response to the liver king video, ‘I need to talk to you because The Rock’s been lying.’ There’s not a f***ing chance in hell he’s clean, not a chance in hell, as big as The Rock is, at 50.” – Rogan joked.
Rogan might have a bone to pick with Johnson. While Rogan was in the eye of the storm, Johnson initially sided with him – and accepted the Covid 19 apology Rogan first posted. This was likely an attempt to secure a spot on the broadcast to promote his business Teremana Blanco.

Rogan added: “There’s a responsibility that you have to people that are listening to you. If you don’t wanna talk about it, that’s one thing. But if you do talk about it, there’s a responsibility that you have to the people that are listening to you. and I think you have to be honest. Which is why I’m honest about it.”
“I don’t think there’s anything wrong with taking hormone replacement. I think it’s wise, I think it’s healthier, I feel way better than I did before I was doing it and I started doing it when I was like 37-38.”
“And even then, I was just taking like the cream. I was taking a testosterone cream and like right away I was like ‘Oh my god! I feel so much better. Like everything felt better. I don’t think it’s wrong. I think it’s smart. But you gotta be honest.”
