Interesting facts about Dwayne Douglas Johnson, commonly known as The Rock

Updated on August 17, 2022 14:24 PM by Andrew Koschiev

Are you a rock fan? You're not the only one who's heard. Dwayne Johnson is one of our favorite actors. Things we have in common: "The" at the beginning of our names, fathers of femininity, loving wrestling, and the ability to use eyebrow-raising as a form of intimidation.

Well, we admit ours isn't as good as Rock's. All right, FINE, the last time I raised an eyebrow at my son, they were confused and asked if my back hurt.

Anyway, let's go over some Rock trivia together so we won't be caught off guard at the next dad get-together. When someone says, "Did you know the Rock is a Canadian citizen?" you can lift your brow in a Rock-like manner, as if to respond, "Did I know the Rock was a Canadian citizen?" As a Canadian citizen, I practically invented The Rock." That is, whatever that means.

He is a Canadian citizen

Didn't we already mention this one? So, our hero Dwayne Johnson was born in the United States — true, true — but did you know that his father was born in Canada? In 2009, Canada altered its citizenship regulations, essentially saying, "OK, the Rock, you may be one of us."The world wants a language written directly in the legislation. (No.)

Wrestling is a family sport for him

Damn, that's a tight fit; varicose veins and receding hairlines run in my family. Will the family have their first fourth-generation wrestler? The older paternal generation will remember Dwayne's father, Rocky Johnson, and possibly Dwayne's grandfather, Peter Maivia.

Both wrestled for the WWF, making the Rock the company's first third-generation wrestler. Continue reading to find out. The Rock recently paid a beautiful tribute to Papa Rock on Instagram.

His classmates mistook him for a cop on the run

He grew up with a full mustache at the age of 15 and erupted at the age of 6'4, so his high school peers looked at him and remarked, "I'm not going to fall for it. He's an adult-ass, Shed." They might say something like, "There's no way this guy hasn't gone through basic Quantico training."

Rock stated that he has no pals (directly related to me!). I believe we can all learn from this example: only make friends with a large lonely high school student if he is very great and famous otherwise, you will regret it later.

As a teenager, he was frequently arrested

"A lot" equals 9 in this situation. That's nine times more than I've been arrested. Dwayne grew up in Hawaii, where life was not always easy. After his family was evicted from their tiny flat, he found ways to make money. It turns out that some of these methods were not always lawful. (For example, becoming a part of a thieving ring that preyed on visitors.)

"The successful men I knew – Stallone, Arnold, Bruce Willis – they were men of action," the Rock later said of the experience, adding that it taught him that the only way to take control of his life was to take control of his body: "The successful men I knew – Stallone, Arnold, Bruce Willis – they were men of action."

He has a criminology degree

Remember when Dwayne Johnson was a part of the Miami Hurricanes defensive line? He was also pursuing a Bachelor of General Studies in criminology and physiology at the same time. If you're curious about his collegiate athletic career, there's not much to say — in four years, he only started one game in four years.

Holds two world records

On the red carpet at the premiere in San Andreas in 2015, Rock broke the record for the number of selfie shots he took with 105 selfie shots in 3 minutes, all with his fans. (Am I the only one who didn't think it was a lot of a selfie?) Since then, the record has been broken several times.)

When he drew the mummy in the franchise spin-off The Scorpion King, he set a Guinness World Record for the highest-paid actor in his first lead role, which was not a very stupid record. He got $ 5.5 million for the film, which was a loss, but it's $ 5.5 million! I'll make a flop for it; please inform my agent.

She's in Star Trek: Voyager

That's right, Trekkies, bring it back in season 6, episode 15, to capture the famous line of fighter champion Pendari: "You're no bigger than a Tarkanian field mouse." Damn, the unnamed champion Pendari gets an ass. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson does his stunts, even though others say, "No, I take it twice, thank you."

His manager is his ex-wife

After 10 years of marriage, Rock and ex-wife Dany Garcia decided to divorce in 2007, as did my parents. Unlike my parents, Rock and Dany are like, hey, we work well, why not start a production company? Thus was born 7 Bucks Productions.

Dany later remarried to a man named Dave Rienzi, who worked as a strength and fitness trainer at Rock, so why not? Rock was a good man, and we were all just one big family.

Eat 7 meals a day

Rock eats what a dietitian would call a metric ton of food per day (almost ~ 1 lb). And that guy loves cod, so his coding stats reach over 800 pounds of cod a year. The rock here eats food as his career, so to be honest, my dream career is.

His role in Fast and Furious was originally written for Tommy Lee Jones

I raised an eyebrow and disagreed. I can never imagine FBI agent Luke Hobbs. Tommy Lee Jones? More than Schmommy Schmee Schmones, get out of here. The rock belongs to the Fast family, and that's it.

He has a ministerial license

Don't tell my chubby 12-year-old lesbian version, who was stunned by WWE and RAW adolescence, that Rock was a potential official for her marriage to John Cena or loss of reason. True to reputation, Rock has a license from the California Secretary of State. Hi, I live in California. John Cena has a home in California. The gang is here, let's start with that.

He coined the term 'smackdown'

Rock first used the term in 1997, and it took only 10 years for Webster's Dictionary to become wise. Webster calls this "the act of turning or converting an opponent; recreational wrestling; decisive defeat; confrontation between opponents or competitors." Don't go after Rock or hit you with "I'm going to start a confrontation between your opponents or competitors."

He was a professional footballer for a short time

Rock played in the Canadian Football League for almost 2 seconds as a defensive line behind the Calgary Stampeders. The team interrupted him after the first season and said, damn it, doesn't the CFL like me either? These were his famous last words in football (never) before he decided to train fully as a professional wrestler.

It's about activism

I mean, where do we start? Did Rock buy his friend a new car? Did he send an inspiring birthday message to the fan? Did he team up with John Krasinski to help his father make his children have a nice Christmas?

But it goes deeper than an act of kindness: in 2006, he founded the Dwayne Johnson Rock Foundation, a charity for at-risk and sick children; he has also worked with the Make a Wish Foundation in the past.

He and his ex-wife Dany Garcia donated $ 1 million to the University of Miami to renovate their football facilities. During the protests, he stood in solidarity with older people in Hawaii. It contributes to the efforts of hurricane relief, the efforts of GoFundMe, the lost dog, and everything in between.

He is the father of a woman

Three times. With one daughter from the first and two from the second marriage, The Rock achieved the coveted status of Trice A Girl Dad. Not. Rock is involved as hell: in small things like styling his daughters' hair and in big things like teaching his first daughter Simone as he enters the world of WWE wrestling. Do you feel what the Rock bought in my heart? I love a good girl, dad.

Yes, Simon, I'm glad you. You heard that Simone started training at the WWE Performance Center in February 2020, making him the first fourth-generation wrestler in history. On May 16, he announced that he had signed a contract with WWE.

A bonus fact before you go

A new live show at The Rock has just dropped. It's called "Young Rock," and that's what we're after. Now that you know these Rockies (what we like to call Rock-related facts), you can point to the screen and say, "Hey, I know." Write it down and be quick with your father's Facts.
