Johnson knows what struggle is, and having experienced every bit of it, he is blessed for the life he has right now.
Later, he graduated from high school, enrolled on a full scholarship at The University of Miami, and aspired to be a professional player there. But life had other plans for him.
After not getting drafted for the NFL, Johnson flew out to Canada to play in the Canadian League. Unfortunately, two months later, he was dropped. People might wonder if Johnson has served in the army, but he has not.
During this dark phase of his career, he traced back to his roots and joined the family legacy of pro wrestling. Soon, he was roped in by WWE, where he made his debut as Rocky Maivia, a character that failed to work well. What followed was a major heel turn, and 'The Rock' the name that set well with his identity was born.
What followed were years of entertainment, Championship wins, and massive pushes he received from Vince McMahon. At this point, WWE was heading into the Attitude Era, a more rebellious stage.
Johnson rose to his peak during this era and made a name for himself. Apart from his wrestling skills, he was also known for his promo abilities and revolutionized the art of cutting promos.
The Attitude Era took The Rock to prominence, and it attracted Hollywood as well; like bees to honey. Soon, they offered him multiple projects, and in 2001, The Rock left WWE to make a career in the movies.
Dwayne Johnson’s wrestling career
A failed football career motivated The Rock to pursue pro wrestling. After his initial babyface gimmick failed, he turned heel.

During this transition phase of his career, Pat Patterson, a father-like figure to Johnson, suggested him the name, 'The Rock'. It instantly clicked with him and has stayed with him forever since.
WWE was going through a change during that point, and his gimmick, paired alongside another rising star, Stone Cold Steve Austin, took the company to new heights, and also gave rise to a new rivalry.
Soon, The Rock would start focusing on acting and leave WWE permanently. His busy schedule came in the way of his wrestling career. It is not known how much he earned during his prime in the company.
