Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s Multifaceted Career in the Entertainment Industry
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was born in 1972 in Hayward, California. His grandfather was a professional wrestler under the name of “High Chief” and his father, Rocky Johnson, was also a professional wrestler who Dwayne oftentimes watched perform in the ring.
Johnson did not plan on partaking in wrestling, but instead, he decided to take on football during college. He attended the University of Miami and due to his size and athletic abilities, he was successful playing football until he had to slow down due to injuries.
He eventually stopped playing football and began wrestling. His debut match for the World Wrestling Federation was in Texas against Brooklyn Brawler, and to his surprise, he actually discovered his talent for wrestling, much like his grandfather and father before him.
The WWF signed him under the name of “Flex Kavana”, but after joining The Nation of Domination, he decided to call himself “The Rock”.
