Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a legendary name in the world of professional wrestling and continues to be one of the biggest names in general as well. Even if he is popular, that does not mean The Rock has forgotten his humble beginnings. That said, it appears he decided to flex a major achievement recently.

The Rock is a third generation pro wrestler, being the son of Rocky Johnson and grandson of High Chief Peter Maivia. While wrestling is clearly in his blood, The Rock didn’t immediately start off as a wrestler.

In case you do not know, The Rock used to be a football player in the 90s, where he played as part of The Calgary Stampeders. That said, he ultimately left football and ventured into professional wrestling.

The Rock took to his Twitter and uploaded a video, where he showed off a locker room that was named after him at Miami University. It had all the bells and whistles one would expect from such a locker room.


Welcome to the Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson Football Locker Room at the one and only, University of Miami THE U At Miami, I had the privilege of playing with some of the greatest players to ever play the game. Hall of Famers. And more importantly, WE had the honor of creating a brotherhood that was forged in our daily discipline ~ to outwork our competition and ALWAYS be the hardest workers in the room. Lifers. This gift is my way of showing love and gratitude to a football program that helped shape and define who I am today as a man. Ups and downs and everything in between. Best of luck this season to my brother & Head Coach Mario Cristobal & his coaching staff. And to our program’s anchor – our players, No team in the country will outwork you. It’s our obsession and our appetite for disruption. See you at the top. DRJ #brotherhood #theU



The Rock also recently disclosed the insanely low pay he got for his first-ever wrestling match. Clearly, The Rock is loved by many and that is all that matters to The Great One right now.
