Recently, Johnson’s movie Disney’s Jungle Cruise was released. It’s been quite the hit since it got released in theatres. Everyone has been trying to get their hands on the ticket. This is what success looks like!

During a conversation with Emily Blunt, The Rock revealed how it all started. Not how his stairway to success started, but his job ethics. The man held down a job at the mere age of thirteen. It wasn’t fancy, it wasn’t interesting, but it was what laid the foundation towards discipline and work ethics.

“My legit first job, I was thirteen years old. And I worked in a pizza shop and I washed dishes. Middle school, everyday from three o’clock till eleven thirty.”

Even to this day, he hand washes the dishes. Undoubtedly, he has a dishwasher at home but when it’s time for him to take care of a load, big or small, he hand washes them.

The Rock may return to WWE soon

The Great One debuted on Survivor Series. Twenty-five years later, the company wants to bring him back at Survivor Series 2021.

The return could possibly be for that event only, or only for a brief period after Survivor Series. Previously, Johnson revealed he has a hectic movie shooting schedule. Therefore, he cannot commit to a long term WWE return.

So, the company can bring The Rock back, put him in a storyline with John Cena and Roman Reigns, and make it a triple threat match. This would be a money-making match, and a great way to boost viewership.
