Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was born to wrestle. His father, Rocky Johnson, is in the WWE Hall of Fame and so is his grandfather, the High Chief Peter Maivia. Even his grandma, Leah Maivia was a prominent wrestling promoter. So it may come as a surprise to hear that The Rock could have had a sparkling football career!
‘The Great One’ played college football for The University of Miami’s national championship team. He also played for the Calgary Stampeders in the CFL. Football’s loss was wrestling’s gain when an injury forced The Rock out of the sport. The rest, as they say, is history!
