The Most Electrifying Man in all entertainment, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is ready to unfold the next chapter of his life with TKO Group Holdings. But it was not before he revealed the decision to join them, despite other offers coming towards him in the past.

The Rock was unveiled as the newest member of the TKO Board of Directors, following WWE’s whooping $5 Billion deal announcement with Netflix. The contract will see their flagship show, Monday Night RAW move to the streaming platform for 10 years, starting in January 2025.

Moreover, The Rock’s inclusion also granted him full ownership of his iconic ring name, which had belonged to WWE until now. In recent interview with CNBC, the 10-time WWE champion spoke about joining the TKO board.

“I’m excited and I’m always looking to grow. I like to say that I’m a builder of things and I enjoy building. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t. With something like this, everything I do and everything I do touch, there 100% is a deeper meaning to it.”


Moreover, he also opened up about choosing to be a TKO Board member rather than other offers he got in the past. He mentioned that it was sitting on a board with the roots of his family legacy.

Joining this board, I have been asked to join other boards in the past, joining this board is unique, different, and special. I’m sitting at a board that my grandfather and dad helped build and help building a company and growing it globally with a global footprint with a guy that I love and admire.” 

While he officially takes on his corporate duties for TKO, The Rock continues to tease the dream showdown with his cousin, the Tribal Chief Roman Reigns at WrestleMania. With the road to the Grandest stage of them all beginning in less than a week, it will be interesting to see how WWE positions The Rock into the mix, following huge changes in the company.
