Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was born into a professional wrestling family, on May 2, 1972, in Hayward, California. The grandson of professional wrestler Peter “High Chief” Fanene Maivia and son of wrestler Rocky Johnson, the young Johnson grew up watching his father perform in the ring. With no plans to follow in his footsteps, Johnson played college football at the University of Miami, showing promise with his size and athleticism until being slowed by injuries. He was arrested multiple times for fighting, theft, and check fraud before the age of 17. Johnson also began playing sports, joining his high schools’ gridiron football, track and field and wrestling team. Dwayne Johnson first rose to fame as “The Rock,” a popular wrestling personality. After putting his step into Holly wood industries. He then became a box-office star, appearing in films including ‘The Scorpion King,’ ‘Hercules’ and ‘The Fast and the Furious’ franchise.
A beautiful loving affair with his wife- one of the most
In August 2019, Johnson tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend, singer/music producer Lauren Hashian. Their story begins back in 2006 when Dwayne and Lauren’s paths crossed while filming on set of his movie The Game Plan, several outlets confirm. At that time, Dwayne was married to producer and professional body builder Dany Garcia. Together, they had a daughter and named her Simone Alexandria. Shortly after Dwayne and Dany divorced in 2007, he and Lauren began seeing each other. .The two have been through some tough obstacles, including the untimely death of Dwayne’s dear friend and Fast and Furious costar Paul Walker in 2013.
Just one week before Christmas in 2015, the pair had their first child together and named her Jasmine. A few years later in April 2018, the couple welcomed their second daughter, Tiana. To announce the news, The Rock shared another equally touching post. In it, he reflects on all the “strong, loving women” in his life and the ever-growing admiration he has for Lauren from watching her deliver new life into the world.
“If you really want to understand the single most powerful and primal moment life will ever offer — watch your child being born. It’s a life changer and the respect and admiration you have for a woman will forever be boundless.”
THE PATH FROM A PROFESSIONAL WWE TO HOLLYWOOD HOT MOVIE STAR:
With few prospects in professional football, Johnson turned to wrestling, debuting in the WWF against the Brooklyn Brawler in Texas. After a couple more matches, including a tag team win with Bart Sawyer, the WWF signed him under the name Flex Kavana. A year later, he joined The Nation of Domination, eventually taking over its leadership and calling himself The Rock, for itself a giant rock hard to break
His muscular body, his fierce, masculine face, is covered with dense coverage, whether on the ring or in the advertising. This has led The Rock to be called The People’s Champion. He later joined another band of elite wrestlers known as The Corporation and began a notorious feud with Steve Austin After that The Rock went on to win a combined 17 WWF/WWE titles over his acclaimed career.
Unlike other sports, American professional wrestling is not necessarily a competition because it is all in the script. Any martial arts used by fighters are trained many times before. However, when going on stage, wrestlers have to act like real with expressions that make the audience believe this is a real battle. From there, The Rock discovered his natural acting ability.
After several appearances on the Saturday Night Live TV program and especially his lightning-fast but hot appearance in Star Trek, Hollywood filmmakers have begun to keep an eye on the muscular guy. Soon after, he was invited as a guest at The Mummy Returns (2001),
Not only that, after pretending to be his father in an episode of That Wrestling (1991), he was rated as “the most inspiring man in the entertainment industry”. That is considered a clear signal predicting his success in acting career.”
Recently, The Rock announced he was quietly retired from wrestling roughly two months ago on Kelly and Ryan, but this is less a full-time return and more of a cameo. Expect The Rock to cut a “promo”, “lay the smackdown” and leave after “electrifying the crowd.”
Rumors were flying that The Rock would make it to Smackdown’s Fox debut, considering he was the wrestler that coined the phrase Smackdown was named after. The only issue was The Rock’s schedule and that issue appears to have been ironed out. “Smackdown is The Rock’s show,” was a catchphrase of The Rock for years, so it makes perfect sense for The Rock to make his return on such a big, important night for the brand. The Rock hasn’t appeared on WWE television since WrestleMania 32 in April 2016.
