Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, renowned for his plethora of nicknames including The People’s Champ, The Great One, The Brahma Bull, and The Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment, recently added a new moniker to his repertoire upon returning to WWE: The Final Boss.

While the designation seems fitting for his larger-than-life persona, some argue its appropriateness given his temporary stint in the promotion. Indeed, his occasional appearances don’t align with the traditional concept of a final boss. Nonetheless, The Rock persistently invokes this title in his promos, leveraging both his on-screen persona and off-screen status as member of TKO’s Board of Directors, which owns WWE.

Although his board position lends belief to his boss-like authority, it’s his provocative promos, both on social media and WWE TV, that truly solidify his claim as The Final Boss. Recent incidents, such as his on-air altercation where he physically confronted Cody Rhodes on Monday Night RAW, coupled with his use of explicit language, signify a departure from the PG era and establish his dominance in the storyline.

Moreover, Johnson’s impending involvement in the Bloodline Saga post-WrestleMania 40 suggests a pivotal role in reshaping the narrative. Speculation abounds regarding potential plot twists, including a betrayal of cousin Roman Reigns at WrestleMania or a future showdown with him, as well as a highly anticipated clash with Cody Rhodes following their heated feud.


As The Final Boss, The Great One injects a much-needed paradigm shift into WWE storylines, ensuring their continued relevance and intrigue for fans.
