Keeping his Hollywood career aside, Johnson has been busy with other businesses.

In the past year, Johnson launched his tequila brand, Teremana. He worked on perfecting the brand and later released it in batches for consumption across the globe.

Next, he purchased a football league. While he has always wanted to play football but never could, this was his way of achieving that dream.

Finally, he launched his own energy drinks brand, ZOA Energy. The brand is fairly new and only a few batches of the product have been made. He released information about the materials used in making the drink.

Apart from the above, Johnson has his own production company, collaborations with major brands, and works with organisations globally to help with charity.

Will The Rock return to WWE?

Coming to the wrestling side of things, it’s possible he will not return to the ring at all. Even if he does, it will be a single match for a major PPV, and not for a long run.

Everyone wants him to return at WrestleMania, and then take on one of the top Superstars. At this point, most believe that the best person against whom The Rock can return is Roman Reigns.

In fact, both of them agree on this. It might not be immediate; however, Reigns feels it could be at the time when WrestleMania goes Hollywood.
