Dwayne Johnson News

Without a doubt, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is one of the most popular actors today. Why else would his autobiography The Rock Says debut at number one at the New York Times Best Seller List? He completely transformed his career in matter of few years, and to think he was on the verge of becoming a professional football player for the NFL. Dwayne came into the eye of the public as the wrestler Rocky Maivia in WWF; he later took the name ‘The Rock’.

For years, he ruled the wrestling world, winning the Heavy Weight Championship nine times. Dwayne’s popularity as a wrestler helped him land a few appearances in other TV shows and sitcoms. He got his lucky break in Saturday Night Live, he was hosting one of the episodes, and the audience simply loved him. Many producers saw his act on the show and offers from Hollywood started pouring in. But Dwayne was smart about it, and chose to do an appearance in a big film like The Mummy Returns (2001). The move paid off as his character of Scorpion King got a spin-off film called The Scorpion King (2002) that again was hit. Dwayne’s first film as the lead was a hit, and there was no stopping him now.

But all has not been a bed of roses for Dwayne, as he has seen a lot of disappointment in life. He almost had a successful football career, if it hadn’t been for an injury that ended his dream. Luckily, he came from a long family of professional wrestlers, so he had a career to fall back on. He worked hard in the wrestling industry, and made a name for himself, which was very hard considering the fact that he came from a long lineage for hall-of-famers. After ruling the wrestling world for many years, it was finally time to move on. He retired in 2004, but kept making appearances in WWE storylines to boost ratings for the show. Till today, he is associated with wrestling, as someday, just like his father and grandfather, he too will be part of the hall of fame.

One reason for his popularity can be attributed to the fact that he has such a clean image. Rarely has anything wrong been reported about him, even after he divorced from his wife of 11years Dany Garcia. He met Dany while in college at the Miami University, where he had gained a full scholarship, thanks to his football skills. Not much is known about his personal life, other than the fact the he is currently single.

Dwayne is still associated with the WWE, but he hasn’t wrestled in the ring since 2004. Although, the internet is rife with the rumors of a one time in-ring comeback, Dwayne is concentrating more on his film career.
