Today, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of cinema’s biggest stars. He’s had leading roles in multiple blockbusters, is an executive producer on one of HBO’s most popular shows not named Game of Thrones, and is one of the most profitable actors in Hollywood. However, turn back the clock two decades, and you would see a very different man. 20 years ago, The Rock was no more than a former University of Miami football player whose NFL career never took off due to injuries. He had less than $100 to his name and was wrestling in flee markets for a couple bucks a night for food money. However, on a fateful November night back in 1996 in New York City, everything changed: The Rock had finally got his shot in the WWE
Recently, The Rock posted a reaction video to his very first appearance in the ring in the WWE and describes how it was unlike anything he’d ever experienced before in his life.
The Rock has come a long way from his days of the chia pet hairstyle, however, he reminds us all that your life can change in an instant and you should always be grateful of the opportunities that you are given and never let one pass you by. You never know, you could become the next BIG thing.
