Before They Were Stars: 11-Year Old Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Watches His Father Wrestle

Before he became a Hollywood star, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was professional’s wrestling first third-generation superstar. His maternal grandfather, “High Chief” Peter Maivia, and his father, Rocky Johnson, both had very successful careers in the wrestling business, but The Rock’s first appearance in front of a television camera was when he attended one of his father’s shows. If you skip to the 25:37 mark of this March 1984 episode of WWF Championship Wrestling, you’ll see an 11-year old Dwayne Johnson watching his father in tag team action. Hard to believe that kid would become so huge that he would transcend the wrestling business
