Talking about Dwayne, he started his career as a WWE wrestler in 1996 and was the third generation wrestler in the history of the WWE. His father Rocky Johnson is in the WWE Hall of Fame. Junior Johnson is the University of Miami football standout. He showed promise during Intercontinental Championship within months of first setting foot in the ring. The Rock’s momentum never slowed, as he laid the smackdown on “Attitude Era” rivals like “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Triple H. His one-eyebrow-cocked style is still famous among WWE viewers.
