Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson certainly needs no introduction when it comes to the pro wrestling world as he is still regarded as one of the all-time greats. He is now one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood. Being such a huge name with a massive fan following, there are many who want him to become the President Of The United States.
Last year, it was revealed in a survey that 46% of voters would push the button to vote for Dwayne Johnson to become POTUS. The Rock even said that it would be an honor to be the President. A former pro wrestler and current actor becoming the President is certainly not a farfetched concept if we consider the recent trend of U.S. Presidents.
While speaking to Brandon Robinson of Bally Sports, The Rock’s cousin Rikishi stated that he would vote for The Rock if he actually runs for President in the future. He seemed very sure that Johnson will run as Rikishi straight-up said that The Great One already has his vote.
“I’m voting for him! I don’t know about being the Vice President… [laughs] I’ll be voting for him though because I’m not the political cat; I’m just the cat who supports the people!”
The Rock was also considered a serious presidential contender by a former White House Chief Of Staff. However, the likes of Stephen Colbert don’t want The Rock to run for President. We will have to wait and see whether The Rock ends up running for President or not. In the meantime, WWE fans are still hopeful for his return to Vince McMahon’s company.
