Bio

Dwayne Douglas Johnson is an American actor and third-generation professional wrestler, best known for his time in World Wrestling Entertainment as The Rock. He continues to use the moniker as an actor.

The Rock at first did not plan to follow in the family tradition of sports-entertainment stardom. He instead used his athletic skill on the gridiron, where he starred for the University of Miami.

After a brief professional football career, The Rock decided to give WWE a shot - a choice that would begin a new era in the entertainment world.

In only a few years, The Rock was a multi-time WWE Champion and one of the most celebrated Superstars to ever set foot in the ring.

But it was more than his ability to "layeth the smacketh down" in the ring that made The Rock a Superstar. His quick wit, charisma and ability to talk smack earned such raves that The People's Champion was asked to speak to the people over and over again.

His many famous public appearances included hosting Saturday Night Live in 2000 and a speech at the 2002 Republican National Convention.

By 2001, The Rock became a multi-media superstar, having starred in the feature film, The Mummy Returns, and its highly successful prequel, The Scorpion King.

He also starred in the blockbuster film, Doom, based on the game of the same name.

His autobiography, The Rock Says... was a New York Times No. 1 bestseller.

The Rock continued his film career by starring in Walking Tall, an action drama based on a true story, which follows his performance in The Rundown.

He gave a noteworthy performance as gay bodyguard Elliot Wilhelm in the 2005 sequel to Get Shorty, Be Cool. He made liberal use of his famous "People's Eyebrow", one of the talents he used in the WWE.

The tattoo on The Rock's arm and left pectoral muscle was given to him as a mark of high status after he visited Samoa in late 2002 and was given a chieftain title from Malietoa Tanumafili II.

The Rock is a good friend of fellow wrestler Stone Cold Steve Austin in real life.

In 2013 he hosted the reality competition television series The Hero.
