The Rock

Dwayne Douglas Johnson (born May 2, 1972) is an American actor and third-generation retired professional wrestler, best known for his time in World Wrestling Entertainment as The Rock.
Born in Hayward, California, Johnson first gained mainstream fame as a standout in the then-World Wrestling Federation. He was originally known in the promotion as Rocky Maivia, in homage to his father, Rocky Johnson, and his maternal grandfather, High Chief Peter Maivia. His mother Ata Maivia was a Samoan of royal lineage of Samoa. He used to hold the record for most reigns as WWF/E Champion, having held the title 7 times. The Rock has begun a successful acting career in Hollywood, continuing to use his moniker.


Fueled by the star power of The Rock and other stars such as Stone Cold Steve Austin, Mankind, Triple H, The Undertaker and Kane, the WWE experienced a massive surge in popularity not seen since Hulk Hogan's reign in the '80s. In particular, Johnson's extremely entertaining interviews and storylines made WWF programming a must-see for wrestling fans.
From 1998 to 2002, The Rock feuded against the WWF's top stars, winning the WWE Championship seven times during his career, and eventually crossed over into mainstream popularity, such as with a guest appearance on R&B singer Wyclef Jean's track "It Doesn't Matter" and the accompanying video. While still wrestling full-time, Johnson made an appearance as host of the popular sketch comedy TV series Saturday Night Live. The episode was very popular, and it showcased Johnson's acting and comedic ability favorably.
After this, Johnson started to get offers from Hollywood for a multitude of different projects. He was a guest star on Star Trek: Voyager and That '70s Show; in the latter, he played the role of his father. The Rock's first role in a major film was a limited appearance as The Scorpion King in The Mummy Returns, and his natural charisma translated well to the silver screen. The success of this movie, to which his performance contributed, led to his first leading role starring in the follow-up to The Mummy Returns, titled The Scorpion King. Since then he has featured in several popular movies including Be Cool, The Rundown and Walking Tall. He made occasional wrestling appearances up to 2004's WrestleMania XX.
