Early life

Dwayne Douglas Johnson was born on May 2, 1972 in Hayward, California, the son of Ata Johnson (née Maivia) and professional wrestler Rocky Johnson (born Wayde Douglas Bowles). His maternal grandfather, “High Chief” Peter Maivia, was also a wrestler, and his maternal grandmother, Lia Maivia, was one of wrestling’s few female promoters, taking over Polynesian Pacific Pro Wrestling after her husband’s death in 1982 until 1988. Johnson’s father, who is Canadian, is a Black Nova Scotian, while his mother is of Samoan descent. His father was part of the first black tag team to win the World Tag Team Championship in the World Wrestling Federation (WWF). Through his mother, he is considered a non-blood relative of the Anoa’i wrestling family. His cousin, Savelina Fanene, is also a wrestler currently working for WWE.

Johnson briefly lived in the suburb of Grey Lynn in Auckland, New Zealand with his mother’s family. He attended Richmond Road Primary School, before returning to the United States with his parents. He spent 10th grade at President William McKinley High School in Honolulu, Hawaii. As he entered 11th grade, his father’s job required his relocation to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, where Dwayne began playing football at Freedom High School in the East Penn Conference. He was also a member of the school’s track and field and wrestling teams.

Johnson was a promising football prospect and received offers from many Division I collegiate programs. He decided on a full scholarship from the University of Miami, playing defensive tackle. In 1991, he was on the Miami Hurricanes’s national championship team. When an injury sidelined him, he was replaced by future National Football League (NFL) star Warren Sapp. While attending Miami, Johnson met his future wife, Dany Garcia, who graduated from the university in 1992 and later became a member of its Board of Trustees. She also founded a Miami-based wealth management firm. In 2006, the couple donated $2 million to build a living room at the University’s Newman Alumni Center.

Johnson graduated from Miami in 1995 with a Bachelor of General Studies degree in criminology and physiology. He joined the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League in 1995. He was on the practice roster as a backup linebacker but was cut two months into the season. On November 10, 2007, Johnson returned to the Miami Orange Bowl to participate in the festivities surrounding the University of Miami’s last home football game at the stadium.

Professional wrestling career

He has been dubbed The Great One, The People’s Champion and The Most Electrifying Man in All of Entertainment. Mere words fail to capture the essence of the most charismatic Superstar of all time, though the catchphrase “boots to asses” comes awfully close.

The first third-generation Superstar in WWE history, the man born Dwayne Johnson was destined for sports-entertainment immortality since birth, but his rise to the status of a pop culture icon was harder to predict. In the time since he made his debut as a grinning good guy at the 1996 Survivor Series, The Brahma Bull has won eight WWE Championships, headlined WrestleMania, hosted “Saturday Night Live,” written a New York Times bestselling autobiography, top-billed the popular HBO series “Ballers” and starred in films like “Fast Five” and “The Game Plan”, which have grossed literally billions of dollars. The amazing thing is, he’s just getting started.

Son of WWE Hall of Famer Rocky Johnson, the University of Miami football standout showed promise early when he won the Intercontinental Championship within months of first setting foot in the ring. From there, The Rock’s momentum never slowed, as he laid the smack down on “Attitude Era” rivals like “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Triple H while spouting off endless catchphrases that immediately became part of national conversation. With one eyebrow cocked, The People’s Champion would warn jabronis to “Know your role and shut your mouth” or “Just bring it!” before delivering his devastating finishing maneuver, The Rock Bottom, on the way to victory.
