We will Rock you! Pro Wrestler Rocky Johnson with his son, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. (1981)
Pictured here is a young Dwayne Johnson, better known by his as The Rock. Next to him is his father, pro wrestler Rocky Johnson. Dwayne followed in his father’s footsteps gaining mainstream fame in the World Wrestling Federation from 1996 to 2004. He tried his hand in acting in 2000, with a role in The Mummy Returns and he’s been acting ever since.
According to Dwayne, his father has had a hard life and he admires him. Over the years Dwayne has surprised his dad with nice cars, trucks, and even moved him into a bigger house. "My dad, Rocky Johnson is a minimalist. Always has been. Never asks me for much and over the years his needs are always the barest." He went on to state, "Hell, I'll get him anything he wants, but the SOB just won't ask."
