The Rock is the most electrifying man in sports entertainment and that is a moniker that he wore with pride for years. Now he will have an honor to go along with that title.

The Rock is officially being given the award for People’s Champion of 2021 at the 2021 People’s Choice Awards. This is a huge honor, because Dwayne Johnson is already up for a ton of awards.

Jen Neal, Executive Vice President, Entertainment Live Events, Specials & E! News, NBCUniversal Entertainment Television and Streaming.

“Dwayne is one of the most beloved actors of our time who has achieved unprecedented success throughout his career,” said “During a period where there has been a lot of uncertainty, Johnson has displayed an uncanny ability to raise spirits and make people smile despite circumstances. His philanthropic efforts and international social media presence has made him a cultural leader and inspiration to many, making him the perfect recipient for The People’s Champion Award of 2021.”


The Rock is up for seven People’s Choice Awards in the 2021 awards ceremony, the same amount of dollars he had in his pocket when starting his huge journey in the entertainment industry. This is a huge honor for The Great One and we have to wonder what else Johnson will accomplish by the time his career is said and done.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
