Almost everyone loves him. Even if someone is not much into sports, any movie-goer would be able to immediately recognize him. Since his debut in Hollywood, he has proven to be a bankable name for various filmmakers. Due to this, he has been seen in many movies and television shows. This includes fan-favorite movies such as the Fast and the Furious franchise and the Jumanji franchise, as well as other movies he’s produced and acted in. Due to his various businesses and numerous Hollywood projects, he has become a prominent name and a very influential person.

The Rock’s entertaining mic skills

Fans who watched WWE during the Attitude Era are familiar with The Rock’s mic skills. This skill of his has been commended by many, with even veteran wrestler Hulk Hogan commenting on it. There have been many instances where fans were left awestruck by the way he would cut a promo or leave a fellow wrestler speechless. Apart from that, he always had the skill of keeping the listeners engaged. He has been known as an incredible public speaker.

This skill of his has worked in his favor so far. One of the major tasks the candidates have to take up is going on campaigns. “The Brahma Bull” can keep the fans hooked with his speeches as he has done before in various ceremonies. Apart from that, with his conversation skills, he might be a delight to watch during live television debates while he is campaigning.

A decent chunk wants him to run for President

Even though he had said in the past that the thought of being a mayor or The President is alluring, he has clarified that it is something he is not currently looking at. However, it looks like fans of the Black Adam star want him to take up the role of The President. While speaking with Trevor Novah in his podcast, he revealed a number so staggering, that even he was not able to believe it. According to him, back in 2022 “the parties” approached him to run for the role of The President, that is both the Democrats and Republicans had approached Johnson to run for POTUS as their respective candidate.

To back up this offer, they had the results of a survey conducted back in 2021. In the poll that had 30,000 individuals, 46% of them saw him as the next President. Johnson further added that the poll results were not the only data they had. According to said research, the political parties told him that if he ever goes down the road, he would be the real deal. This hints that if he ever announces to run for the role, he will have a lot of support from political allies and his fans.

Dwindling faith in past and current leaders

The last two President of the United States have faced significant criticism during their runs. While Joe Biden is still the current President, entrepreneur Donald Trump served before him from 2017 to 2021. The current race for President for the 2024 election sees both the former and the current President trying to make it take on another run as President.

The two have faced a fair share of criticism over past years. Amidst all this, people want someone who they could bank on. And the next reason highlights why Dwayne Johnson will be a good fit.

One take at a time

For me pro wrestling has two things that I like the most, storytelling and fighting. Let?s just say movies are failing to keep me entertained in those departments. I grew up watching WWF and not WWE and any hardcore fan will agree that the two are not the same, but I love both iterations.
