WWE News And Updates: Dwayne 'The Rock Johnson' Hints On Running For 2020 US Presidency
If you SMMMEEEEELLLLL!!!!! What The Rock IS COOKING!!!! All of you jabronis out there, watch out. And the millions, and millions, of The Rock's fans. Looks like The Rock, Dwayne Johnson in real life, is definitely cooking something. And no. It has nothing to do with the People's Elbow or that megawatt smile of his. And it definitely has nothing to do with the famous People's Eyebrow. The People's Champ is considering running for president. Yup. You heard that right.
In an interview with Vanity Fair's Paul Chi, the former WWE superstar and now Hollywood star stated that he's considering running for president in 2020. Apparently, Donald Trump's unlikely triumph over Hillary Clinton in last week's election has made The Rock realized that anything is possible in American politics.
"I wouldn't rule it out," Johnson said. "It would be a great opportunity to help people, so it's possible. This past election shows that anything can happen."
Even before the interview with Vanity Fair, The Rock has already been hinting of running for president based on his tweets.
Johnson, 44, started his pro wrestling career in the WWE back in 1996. With his electrifying charisma and wrestling skills, he later on became the biggest star of the company and one of the greatest wrestlers of all-time. His popularity skyrocketed and has gained him millions of fans worldwide. In 2001, he decided to give acting a try. He first debuted in The Mummy Returns and made his first leading film role in the The Scorpion King. Since then, he has starred in various films including The Rundown, The Game Plan, Race to Witch Mountain, G.I. Joe: Retaliation and The Fast and The Furious franchise where-in he played the role of Luke Hobbs. He's also the lead voice actor in the upcoming Disney animated film Moana and currently stars in the HBO Original Series Ballers.
This isn't the first time Johnson has been involved in politics. Back in 2000, he spoke at the Republican National Convention in Philadelphia where he appeared in character as The Rock. He encouraged everyone to vote regardless if you're a Democrat or a Republican.
If ever The Rock decides to run for president, whoever his opponent better be ready for a battle. Just by looking at his 70.3 million followers on Instagram would make anyone think twice of running against him.
