Introduction: Born in Hayward, California, Johnson first gained mainstream fame as a standout in the World Wrestling Federation (now World Wrestling Entertainment). He was originally known in the promotion as Rocky Maivia, in homage to his father, Rocky Johnson, and his maternal grandfather, High Chief Peter Maivia (both of whom were also wrestlers, which led him to be billed as the first third generation wrestler in the history of the World Wrestling Federation). He currently holds the record for most reigns as WWF/E Champion, having held the title 7 times. After largely retiring from the ring to begin a successful acting career in 2002, Johnson retained the name "The Rock".

Yeah, I was also disappointed after I knew that he already left in WWE. He's my number 1 in my list of favorite wrestler. But, anyway Batista shows up and he's almost the same as the Rock. He got the same charisma and fighting attitude like the Rock was.

Well its not only you who got disappointed there are a lot of people who were big fans of The Rock and his fight. What ever he did, he just didn't care about his fan's. It is prooved now that The Rock only thinks about money not fame. He got more in movies so he left his wressling fans alone.

The only think that you need to know about The Rock is that he played football at the U!

Yes, I was going to mention that he played football at Miami. I'd guess that acting has a higher profile and higher paycheck than pro wrestling, which has a loyal following but pretty small compared to the number of people who go to movies. Plus athletes always want to be movie stars or singers, and movie stars want to be athletes.

Hi! Well, this is just a theory, but I imagine one wouldn't want to wrestle forever. I once heard Hulk Hogan say that he never got in a ring without getting hurt. I think if wrestlers get a chance to break into another career because of wrestling, they should go for it. Wrestling is physically demanding and some of them have been seriously hurt, like Kurt Angle, so I think it's great if they can move on to something better. :-)

Hee didn't want to die being a wrestler and he makes more money doing films so maybe that is the reason he left

He wanted more, he also wanted to be around more with his daughter. He's had many interviews since he's left & he's said that he just wanted to see what was out there for him. But my question to you is why not think of a question on your own? This is all information found on a website about The Rock.

I thaught the rock was stopping with WWE WWF because he wanted to play a actor in movies. He was very funny allways with his comments about other people in WWE/WWF. He and Stone cold steve Austin were my favorites from hole WWF and WWE

Earlier this year, the First Union Center in Philadelphia was taken over by the World Wrestling Federation. Superstar wrestler The Rock is known for giving wrestlers rock bottoms and insulting them on the microphone. Behind the scenes, though, Duane Johnson, the man behind the Rock, is caring and polite. After making an appearance with three people from the Make A Wish Foundation, it was my turn to be with the Rock. While interviewing him, I learned that he isn't just a famous wrestler but also a caring and special person. Rock, you had a great football career with the Miami Hurricanes. If you had to choose between playing football or wrestling for the World Wrestling Federation, what would you choose? I strongly believe that everything happens for a reason. To be honest with you, I wouldn't change a thing. It was a great learning experience, as was my time at the University of Miami. The professional career I had in the CFL (Canadian Football League) was also a great learning experience. Those were chapters and steps in my life that had to be taken. I wouldn't change a thing. You debuted in the World Wrestling Federation at Survivor Series 1996. What were you feeling that night? That night I was in Madison Square Garden, the mecca of all arenas. With all the history of the Garden, not only the World Wrestling Federation but also all the entertainment and sports events held there, it was an experience I'll always remember. My father wrestled there, my grandfather wrestled there. I wasn't nervous, but I was really excited. I was full of adrenaline. It was a great night, one I will never forget. How do you prepare for a match, both mentally and physically? Mentally, I try to think about the crowd. In every city, there is a totally different crowd. The crowds here in Philadelphia are certainly different from those in Dallas, Los Angeles, or Chicago. I put a lot of trust in my colleagues, as they put a lot of trust in me to protect me and for me to protect them in the best way possible. In terms of physically, I try to maintain a well-balanced day. I will workout and get a lot of my business done. Also, eating right is important. Physically, I'm fortunate that what we do is theatrical and we know what's going to happen. It's not like a prizefight. It's more than just a boxing fight. We have the ability to go out there and hold 30,000 people in the palm of our hands. We take them on an emotional roller coaster. At the end of the night the people are thoroughly entertained. In your entire wrestling career, what do you consider your greatest match? I can't just pick one match as my greatest. I can say that I have thoroughly enjoyed working with several wrestlers. HHH, Kurt Angle, and Chris Benoit are all superstars who I enjoy working with. "Stone Cold" Steve Austin is someone I enjoy working with immensely. I have had a lot of really good matches with Mick Foley. It's not just one particular match; it's many opponents who bring out a different side of the Rock, as I do for them. Everyone brings a different quality to the ring, and I capitalize on that. You have done many TV appearances, including the MTV Video Music Awards, hosting "Total Request Live," and "Saturday Night Live." What do you consider your greatest accomplishment outside the squared circle? Again, it's really hard to pick my one greatest accomplishment. Financially, the movie deals I signed are an accomplishment. Personally, whether it's hosting "TRL," doing the MTV Music Awards, or appearings on shows like "That Seventies Show," "Star Trek," or "DAG," all those are what help me get my movie deals. Hosting "Saturday Night Live" opened the eyes of studio executives and a lot of people in Hollywood. I think professionally it would have to be the movie deals, because that is a career that I would like to take on. I think getting the Man of The Year Award for the Make A Wish Foundation is my greatest accomplishment outside the square circle. That was an honor and really cool What exactly is a jabroni? Jabroni can be used in different contexts. It can be slang for a friend by saying, " That's my boy, that's my jabroni over there." You can also say, "That guy's a jabroni," meaning that he's a nobody, a peon. It is a derogatory term. I think it has Latin origins. But you can call anyone a jabroni, it's one of those slang words you can never get in trouble for. How did you come up with your trademark line, "It doesn't matter what your name is"? I collaborate with our writers who work extremely hard. They do a great job writing really good material. Sometimes things just happen like, "It doesn't matter" or "Shut your mouth, jabroni." Where do you see yourself in ten years? In ten years, I hope to still be blessed with the opportunity to keep pleasing fans, the World Wrestling Federation, and the big screen. In ten years, hopefully I will still be blessed with my family and close circle of friends.

Dwayne Johnson "The Rock" is still part of the WWE. I think his profile is still up on the WWE Rosters. I have read some article about him coming back to wrestle again its in lordsofpain website and he said in that article that he still wants to return to the ring but he has tight schedules in his acting career. His still Vince product. I miss watching him wrestle and goof of behind the camera. If yoooooo smellllllalalalallaalaw What the Rock is Cookin! Yeah! :)
