Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson     

by James A. Corrick

During his career as a professional wrestler, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson thrilled wrestling fans everywhere. Known as the People's Champion, the Rock was a wrestling superstar whose dynamic and colorful personality attracted attention both inside and outside the ring. His feuds with other wrestling greats resulted in some of the most talked-about matches in wrestling history. He became the first African American to hold the World Wrestling Entertainment World Championship title, one he went on to capture six more times. This book describes how Dwayne Johnson, the son and grandson of professional wrestlers, became the Rock and, in his own words, "the most electrifying man in sports entertainment." It details his failed ambition to become a professional football player and how that failure led him into the family business of wrestling. Eventually, the Rock built a successful wrestling career, and ultimately became a movie star as well.
