The Rock’s Professional Career

Some glimpses of Dewayne-The Rock’s professional career and life achievements are listed below. Indeed, his whole life is a fruitful journey of struggle and success.

Football Career

Johnson initially struggled and got involved in fighting and crimes at Freedom High School. When he was 17, local police arrested him for fighting, stealing, and forging checks. He had also served a two-week suspension for fighting. Due to his criminal activities, the regional newspaper labeled him “a troubled teenager with a history of run-ins with police.” However, Freedom High School football coach Jody Cwik saw Johnson’s athletic talent and invited him to join his team to play defensive tackle. This encounter signaled the start of Johnson’s personality transformation. To explain his experience of playing football at high school, he said, “My thought process started to change. That’s when I started thinking about goals and what I wanted to accomplish.”

Besides playing football, Johnson also joined the track and field and wrestling team at Freedom High School in addition to football. Johnson had only played football for two years till his final year. Dwayne Johnson got the title of one of the country’s top ten high school defensive tackles by college football recruiters. He decided to get a complete athletic scholarship offer from the University of Miami, which at the time had one of the most outstanding football programs in the country. Johnson participated in 39 games during his career at Miami.

The Rock gained massive fame and won multiple WWF championships. He is regarded as among the most successful and well-known professional wrestlers of the modern era. His stellar record (269-163-40) speaks for itself.
In the middle to late 2000s, The Rock occasionally continued to wrestle and used to make surprising appearances in the ring. On August 3, 2019, he announced his final retirement from professional wrestling.
