Dwayne Johnson Bio
On May 2, 1972, Dwayne Johnson came into the world in Hayward, California. He came from a family of wrestlers; both his father and grandfather had been in the industry. His grandma, too, worked in the wrestling business.
Dwayne spent a brief time in his childhood with his mother’s family in New Zealand. He studied to Richmond Road Primary School in Auckland, but then came back to the US and spent 10th grade in a high school in Hawaii.
Johnson’s passion in football began the next year after his family was forced to uproot and move to Pennsylvania. The University of Miami gave him a full football scholarship, and he accepted. As a Miami Hurricane, he was expected to play a key role in the team’s run to the national championship, but an injury forced him off the field.
Dany Garcia, the owner of a Miami wealth management firm, was Dwayne’s classmate and later his wife. After graduating, Dwayne headed to Canada to join the Calgary Stampeders in the CFL.
Dwayne Johnson Career
The ex-University of Miami football player’s cheerful personality and signature smile belie his massive bulk and amazing body. Johnson is 6 feet 5 inches tall and 260 pounds heavy.
Johnson’s football career wasn’t something to write home about, but his speed, size, charisma, work ethic, and raw athleticism led him to his true calling in professional wrestling, which is actually the family business.
Johnson’s mother is from Samoa, and he has a deep connection to his island roots, which he has celebrated with a number of traditional tribal tattoos. His father and paternal grandparents were both professional wrestlers, so it was only natural that he follow in their footsteps and sign with World Wrestling Entertainment when an injury caused him to leave the Canadian Football League. The Rock won his first of many world titles in 1998 and became an instant hit with WWE fans.
Then he started making guest appearances on TV shows, generally as himself, and in 2001 he got a leading role in The Mummy Returns, joining a long line of wrestlers who have tried their hand at acting.
A leading man was conceived, and The Rock shattered the mould of unsuccessful wrestlers-turned-actors. With almost a hundred roles under his belt, he has established himself as one of the most prominent actors of his era.
