"Do you smell what The Rock is cookin’?" Those eight words send shock waves through thousands of people in the arena and to the people watching at home. Destined to be in the business because of his family ties, the WWE pushed Dwayne The Rock Johnson, even though he lacked a lot of in ring experience in the beginning.
From his humble raising along and in the Pacific Ocean, it only made sense for The Rock to become a wrestler. His grandfather was a wrestler. His grandmother became one of the first female promoters. His father was a wrestler, and he has many cousins that have been in the business, like Rikishi and Umaga.
Duane "Rock" Johnson's rise to fame started with his big win of the then known Hunter Hearst Hemsley, now Triple H. This happened in February of 1997, just three months after his introduction. Not long after, he had dropped the name Rocky Maiva, which was a combination of his father and grandfather’s wrestling name. He then became known as The Rock.
The good looking, magnetic personality went on to have phenomenal success. Fans did grow tired of his one-dimensional good guy character, and this is where the phrase ‘The Rock says...’ came into play. He attacked and insulted during all of his promos during this time. He also feuded heavily with Stone Cold Steve Austin, Ken Shamrock, and former stable member, Farooq.
The Rock’s appeal transcended wrestling. After numerous battles and alliances with Vince McMahon, Mankind, and other major figures, The Rock took a break from wrestling. He starred in numerous movies, appeared on many award shows, and even hosted a few.
The exposure has led to his autographs and collectibles being more valuable than most superstars.
There are cards, photographs, t-shirts, cds, DVDs, and even actual gear that he wore. The gear that you can buy consist of the elbow pads he would throw out into the audience before laying the Smackdown on his opponent by dropping the People’s Elbow. There are also some shirts and well as boots that he wore. Overall, you are going to find great deals at a great price for this WWE Superstar. Out of all the WWE superstars, Dwayne The Rock Johnson really highlights the best in the business. He has charisma, charm, personality, and star power.
