Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson remains one of the most popular pro wrestlers to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle. The Rock has done it all as far as being a pro wrestler is concerned. Vince McMahon also became a huge fan of The Rock very early in his career.
However, The Rock certainly did not have the best of starts in WWE as his Rocky Maivia character was hated by almost everyone. The Rock eventually found his groove thanks to his electrifying persona and charisma.
While speaking on Grilling JR, Jim Ross talked about The Rock’s career in WWE. Ross revealed that Vince McMahon became a huge fan of The Rock very early in his career.
“Vince’s cost to stay optimistic in the beginning because you know he’s had seen these beautiful packages sometimes simply do not play out but in time Vince became a huge Rock supporter. If you arearound him you can feel his enthusiasm and he also had a background being in the family business that he understood things that a lot of guys took time to assimilate. So it didn’t take long for Vince to become a Rock fan.”
The Rock also refused to wear Muslim attire in WWE. We’ll have to see whether The Rock will return to WWE by the time WrestleMania 39 takes place or not.
