Can you smell what the Rock is cooking? The Rock or as everyone else may know him as Dwayne Johnson, started his career the ring, before he was even an actor. He was know as the ‘Peoples Champion’, even when he wasn’t a champion.
He become more popular in the Attitude Era, just like many great legends have started, such as: Edge, Triple H, Randy Orton, etc. The Rock never backed down to a fight, calling out ever one of those ‘candy asses’, that didn’t want to step in the ring with him.
To me, he was a legend on the mic. One of the very few wrestlers who had the talent of being a great fighter, but knew how to talk some smack. He was a wrestler everyone love. Who didn’t love The Rock! Especially, when we all learned to do the ‘Peoples Eyebrow’.
Once he got into acting, wrestling became a forgotten memory of his past. Only the true fans knew how he started out. In the past couple years, The Rock as become very popular and famous in the movie business. He has also became a father earlier this year as well!
The Rock is one of the most bad-ass celebrities that we have today. To think it all started in a WWE ring. Maybe some day, we will see the Rock back in action for a Wrestle Mania match, so he can show the world that he can still kick some candy asses!
Here is a list of titles he has won:
- WCW World Championship – 2 times
- WWF/WWE Championship – 8 times
- WWF Intercontinental Championship – 2 times
- WWF Tag Team Chamionship – 5 times – with Mankind (3), The Undertaker (1), and Chris Jericho (1)
- Royal Rumble Winner – 2000
Surprise! I figured I would talk about a Superstar that hasn’t yet been in the Hall of Fame, yet, but I am hoping that really soon, he should in the Hall of Fame.
Anyway, thanks for reading! Next Wednesday, I will pick a Superstar from Raw, I will be picking someone from the Women’s Division. That’s for me to know and you to find out next week!
