Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson didn't get a chance to settle his feud with Vin Diesel at Wrestlemania 33, but the star turned world's highest-paid actor will get plenty of opportunities to kick some butt on the big screen this year in The Fate of the Furious.

stopped by the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday to chat about the upcoming eighth installment of the franchise. The superstar and Mickey Gall's Twitter pal revealed that he thoroughly enjoyed beating up his co-stars like Scott Eastwood in the flick.

In particular, Johnson had way too much fun kicking the crap out of fellow action movie icon Jason Statham.

"Any opportunity I get to tell Jason, 'I'm going to kick your tea and crumpets-eating ass,' I love it," the Rock joked before showing a clip from the film.

Unlike his ongoing war with Diesel, Johnson seems to be buds with Statham behind the scenes, as he told Fallon that it was a blast working with his British co-star.

"I got to tell you something about Jason," the Rock said. "We wanted to hopefully create a relationship in the movie that audiences are really going to love, and we have this hate-hate relationship in the movie, but we grow together like brothers and it winds up being one of the best relationships in the movie that audiences love."
