Dwayne Johnson Facts

Have you smelt what the Rock has been cooking lately? While we are all well versed with the man’s catchy phrases over the years and have been amazed and amused by his public and television persona – there is more to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson than meets the eye.

For instance, did you know that his autobiography was not just some glossy coffee table book purchased by wrestling enthusiasts for their homes but was actually on the New York Time’s bestseller list for several weeks? You might not have pictured The Rock as a literary genius or, in fact, being affiliated with anything that has to do with academia, but he, in fact, holds a Bachelor’s degree in Criminology – no wonder he possesses a penchant for fighting the bad guys!

Not only was he good with his books, but Dwayne the Rock Johnson has made mainstream appearances in some cult classics that you might have blinked and missed if you weren’t paying too much attention – for instance, he starred in guest roles on Star Trek and That 70’s Show, not to forget that he also hosted an episode of Saturday Night Live. Clearly, a man of several talents.

Here is an infographic about twelve such fascinating Dwayne Johnson facts you probably never imagined.
