Jaw-dropping things we didn't know about The Rock!
Even though he is known as ‘The Rock’ , none of us have a negative and scary image of him when we think about him! If there was a person who could inspire people every single day, that person would be no one but Dwayne Johnson (46). The Rock was born on the 2nd of May 1972 and is a professional wrestler, producer and an actor. In wrestling, as a professional, he achieved eight-time WWF/WWE Champion, two-time WCW/World Champion, two-time WWF Intercontinental Champion and a five-time WWF Tag Team Champion. He won the 2000 Royal Rumble.

I’ll never, ever be full. I’ll always be hungry. Growing up, I had nothing for such a long time. Someone told me a long time ago, and I’ve never forgotten it, ’Once you’ve ever been hungry, really, really hungry, then you’ll never, ever be full.’— Vala Afshar (@ValaAfshar) July 19, 2018
