Dwayne Johnson, best known for his long history in WWE, is an unstoppable rock that rolls down the hill of mediocrity to the valley of triumphant victory. Dwayne was a champion defensive end at the University of Miami before his success in WWE. NFL undrafted him in 1991. it is when he began to adopt his new name, The Rock. But, this was only the beginning. He became a global film presence after his rough start in 2001’s The Mummy Returns.

He continued appearing in both film and WWE for around 5 years. However, he eventually set his sights on the American film line’s difficult road. Dwayne Johnson was still being called “The Rock” in movies throughout 2007. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is another of his name. Dwayne Johnson without “the Rock” became a well-known name after people got used to him for his wicked charm and stony good looks.

After twenty years of being a film star and a wrestler, Dwayne has become much more. He has done a lot, including co-founding his luxury Tequila (Teremana) and establishing a production company, Seven Bucks Productions. His line of exercise clothes and “The Rock” earbuds with Under Armour are other assets to count. He is not only a star onscreen but a solid innovator in business, profession, and pleasure.

Dwayne even teased his followers on his popular Instagram account, suggesting he may run for president. He also posts inspirational quotes about life, work, and exercise. Although it may sound silly, 46% of more than 30,000 adults who were surveyed supported a presidential campaign to honor our action hero. All in all, a lot that makes the Rock so beloved. But today, we dedicate this article to his many memorable film appearances. We list his top 10 movies, and this time excluding the Fast and Furious Franchise, to appreciate his other projects.
