I think we all agree: Dwayne Johnson is a polarizing figure. Whatever world he enters, he becomes King. Put him in a room and all eyes are on him. Ask him to hug complete strangers and he will ask "how long? I'm expected on the set in 5, I can give you 4". Despite his success and his heel persona, he has never appeared cocky or disrespectful. He has no problem using curse words but he will store them when he's with children. He's the only guy mothers around the world all agree on: that's the perfect husband for my daughter. He's not afraid to display his MMA knowledge too! Just minutes ago, he was interacting with Jon Anik, who gave him praise for Moana. Not backing up from the pun, he corrected Anik on why he was not thinking or T-Wood when he said "The chosen one": This tread is only a tribute to the man. The only pro-wrestler I ever truly respected. I never really followed his wrestling career but I couldn't ignore his presence and charisma. We all have a story of the first time we saw him. For me, it's really bizarre. I was aware of him but just knew his eyebrow move. Then, rumor began to run that he was to appear in the Star Trek show "Voyager". I was following that show so I tuned in. That was back in 2000 so internet was more laggy. Yet, I learned he would be there and I was expecting sloppy acting and a eyebrow move, that's it. I wasn't prepared for his presence: Of course, it helped that he was sharing screen with a most beautiful woman, Jeri Ryan: I was intrigued and awaited his movie career. It came just 2 years later when he was asked to headline Scorpion King. Who can carry a whole movie on their debut? The Rock can! I didn't watch the movie until years later but I have to acknowledge his balls of steel. Yet, I was not a fan: the wrestling stigma was too strong for me to ignore. It took 3 more years for me to finally cave in. As a old-time gamer, I was expecting the movie Doom anxiously. I knew Dwayne would be in it but I didn't expect him to be that good. I didn't expect him to turn heel and sell it. Not a remarkable movie but an enjoyable one. Other funny fact: Doom also featured Karl Urban in his first headlining role. I knew the guy, he was playing Cupid in Hercules and Xena, shows I liked a lot as a child: Spoiler: Karl Urban Karl as Cupid: He also played Caesar but I can't remember if it was in Hercules or Xena: Karl in Doom: Back to The Rock. What's YOUR opinion of him? Were you like me, suspicious but willing to give him a chance? Are you a blind worshiper or a devoted hater? Do YOU have a funny story about The Rock? Share it here!
