About Dwayne Johnson
Dwayne Johnson started his career as a college football player until he was cut. His family is known in the wrestling industry. He is a member of the Maiva family. His father is Rocky Johnson who was also a professional wrestler. When Dwayne’s football career was over, he decided to become a wrestler. He was the first third generation wrestler in the WWE’s history.
Dwayne wasn’t a fan favorite when he debuted in the wrestling federation. The fans didn’t take to him right away despite being pushed heavily. The fans didn’t care for his character and they thought that he was a wimp when he was pushed as the good guy. Things started to change one year later after he returned from an injury. His character became a heel and joined the Nation Of Domination. He changed his name to the Rock and he insulted the fans during his promos. The fans seemed to accept his character more as a heel than they did as a good guy.
Once the character became popular, he became a good guy again. He became known as the people’s champion. He became known for his catchphrases. They helped his popularity grow with the fans. He eventually turned back into the heel.
The Rock had famous feuds throughout his wrestling career. Some of his famous feuds were with Triple H. They used to wrestler each other a lot over the years.

As part of The Rock N Sock Connection, they won the tag team championship three times.
The Rock lost the support of the fans again when he decided to do movies. After he was suspended from the WWE, he filmed the movie Mummy Returns. He didn’t appear in the movie long, but the producers wanted to make a movie centered around his character. The movie was called The Scorpion King. The Scorpion King opened doors for the Rock.
