I owe Dwayne Johnson a career. Without ‘The Rock’ I wouldn’t be as successful as I am today.

Dwayne Johnson might not be the most versatile actor out there, but he’s certainly one of the most popular stars, and not even Black Adam’s underwhelming performance at the box office seems to have dented his reputation.

In fact, he recently became the highest-paid actor in Hollywood, having received a fee in the region of $50 million for his role in the Christmas-themed film, Red One. 

One of the big reasons behind the professional wrestler-turned-actor’s success is just how seamlessly he has swapped wrestling arenas with movie sets. He was always a showman, who attracted plenty of eyeballs with his quirky catchphrases and entertaining interviews, and throughout his time in Hollywood, Johnson has ensured to keep his charismatic personality and extraordinary physicality intact.

Why John Cena Owes His Hollywood Career to Dwayne Johnson

John Cena is another wrestler-turned-actor who has more or less walked on the same path as Dwayne Johnson, and has accordingly enjoyed great success. This year alone, he has already appeared in three high-profile movies: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant MayhemBarbie, and Fast X.

During their glory days of the WWF, Cena and The Rock used to be part of many fan debates, which also resurfaced when he entered the Fast and Furious franchise as Jako Toretto, another big guy to join Dominic Toretto’s hands in the absence of Johnson’s Luke Hobbs. However, behind the scenes, the pair share mutual respect.

“He’s broke down so many stereotypes shattered so many barriers. He allowed the outside public to be like, yeah, these WWE guys, they may be on to something none of those opportunities happen without him by doing what he’s done with class and professionalism has given an opportunity to folks like me, where people like yeah, okay, well, I’ll take a chance on John. I don’t think Dwayne understands the impact he’s had on an entire industry of people.”
With Johnson all set to make his comeback in Fast and Furious, the writers of the saga have a great opportunity to put the two WWF legends on the same screen for the first time in Hollywood and realize the magic of their combined potential.
