Who is Dwayne Johnson?
Mr. Dwayne Johnson also known as The Rock was conceived into a family of professional wrestlers on California, on May 2, 1972.
The young Johnson grew up watching his father compete in the ring. He is the grandson of professional wrestler Rocky Johnson and son of wrestler Peter “High Chief” Fanene Maivia. Johnson played collegiate football at the University of Miami, showing promise with his size and agility until being hindered by injury. Johnson had no aspirations to follow in his footsteps.
He engaged in a memorable rivalry with wrestler Steve Austin as “The Rock” and repeatedly captured the WWE Heavyweight championship. Johnson later used his fame from wrestling to launch a successful film career, making appearances in movies including The Mummy Returns from 2001 and Tooth Fairy from 2010. The HBO series Ballers, the Fast and the Furious and Jumanji franchises, as well as the voice of the demigod Maui in Moana are some of the later productions.
Becoming The Rock
With few opportunities to play professional football, Johnson switched to wrestling and made his WWE debut in Texas against the Brooklyn Brawler. The WWE signed him as Flex Kavana after he won a few more matches, including one as a tag team with Bart Sawyer. He joined The Nation of Domination a year later and eventually rose to become their leader, going by The Rock.
Later, he joined The Corporation, a group of top wrestlers, and started a famous rivalry with Steve Austin. The Rock, also referred to as “The People’s Champ,” went on to amass a total of 17 WWE championships over his illustrious career.
