Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson remains one of the most popular pro wrestlers to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle. He was a true icon in WWE and his stock only rose after making his way to Hollywood, where he is now one of the highest-paid actors in the industry.

However, The Rock certainly did not have the best of starts in WWE as his Rocky Maivia character was largely panned by fans. This eventually led to the infamous ”Die Rocky die” chants.

Not only that, but The Rock had a very rough upbringing, as he struggled a lot financially and faced a lot of hurdles before he became the megastar that he is today.

The Rock recently took to Instagram and uploaded a video, where he opened up about his own struggles with mental health and anxiety.

I’ve been down the road, brother so I always got your back @jayglazer.

For you guys out there who’ve gone thru anxiety attacks, panic attacks, fought your way thru depression or as we call it, “the gray”
I understand and I’ve been there.
It’s never a race with mental health, it’s a steady journey thru it all — blue skies to gray and everything in between.

Great to see Jay’s journey inspire so many people around the world.
His new book #Unbreakable – which I highly recommend – is making real impact. 👏🏾🌍

One of the most important things people who might be struggling with mental health need to know is that they’re not alone in the fight.
Be there for ‘‘em. Offer your hand and your back.
It’s what we do.
Pull each other up, dust our shit off and come back stronger.

Great #SchoolOfGreatness podcast with my buddies @jayglazer & @lewishowes 👏🏾👏🏾🥃

Jay’s best selling book UNBREAKABLE is available on Amazon and anywhere books are sold.


We applaud The Rock for speaking openly about mental health issues, which is certainly something one should never refrain from speaking about.
