Dwayne Johnson was born in Hayward, California.

The Rock was born some years later, when Dwayne began his wrestling career, following up the footsteps of his granddad - Peter High Chief Malvia.

His father was in wrestling business also and was famous by the name Rocky Johnson. At first, Dwayne was not sure about his wrestling career. He wanted to play football, and he played well for University of Miami, until a back injury cost him a spot in the NFL. He decided to try out wrestling and was signed under the name of Flex Kavana for WWF. Year later, in 1997, he signed for WWE, and named himself The Rock, in honor of his father.

Johnson has successful acting career, starring in such hit movies as: The Fast and Furious franchise, Hercules (2014), Moana (2016), Baywatch (2017), Rampage (2018), and soo-to-be-released Skyscraper (2018).
