Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a renowned figure in the world of professional wrestling and maintains a strong connection to the industry despite his flourishing career in Hollywood. He was also a big part of the Fast & Furious franchise for a long time and fans loved him in his role as Hobbs. However, now it seems The Rock will be replaced by Jason Momoa in the franchise.

The Rock also debuted in the series in Fast Five in 2011 and since then has appeared in a couple of films. The Rock made it clear he won’t be appearing in the final two instalments of the franchise.

This is largely due to the fact that he has beef with Vin Diesel. This is despite the fact that Diesel wanted The Rock to come back to the franchise. However, The Rock accused Vin Diesel of being manipulative.

According to a report by The Sun, Jason Momoa will now be replacing Johnson in the next rendition of the franchise. One insider shared that Vin Diesel isn’t interested in putting his issues with Johnson “in the rearview mirror.”


“Vin isn’t looking in the rearview mirror on this issue, he’s thinking about the future and right now, the future doesn’t include a reconciliation with Dwayne,” they said. “In fact, Vin is intent on topping the box office of all the movies that included Dwayne with Fast X, and the studio is supporting him. Nobody is telling Vin to stuff his pride and make nice with Dwayne. “Vin’s vision for these movies is being supported in full, end of story.”

The Rock is certainly a busy man and has a ton of other franchises, so it is highly likely he will not care about not being part of the franchise anymore. Regardless, we’ll have to wait and see what’s next in store for The Rock.
