The Rock:

WWE Still Owns

a Piece of Me

2/10/2010 2:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Vince McMahon can still smell what The Rock is cooking -- because he's part owner of the former wrestler's famous catchphrase.

The Rock: Click to watch
Wrestler-turned-kids' movie star Dwayne Johnson was in Calabasas yesterday, where he explained that he is only "co-owner" of his signature lines like "Can you smell what The Rock is cookin'?" and "Layeth the smacketh downeth." According to Dwayne, the WWE holds a claim as well.

Johnson had previously explained how the WWE owns a piece of the name, "The Rock" as well ... but dude practically never uses that moniker anymore.

The Rock needs a lesson in humility. Like Hank Baskett missing an on-side kick. And MJ needs to stop touching the kids in Iraq won't Angelina Jolie help?!

Heavens... sounds like "Farky" is hoping Duane is gay. Then maybe the Farkman might have a chance. So Fark, how long have you been out the closet?
