Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, “The Rock” In an interview promoting his new Disney film Jungle Cruise, which is currently in theatres, the actor told a moving story about WWE great Bret Hart and his influence on him as a juvenile wrestler. True, Johnson is now one of the world’s best wrestlers and actors, but he’s always grateful to those who have helped him along the way. When Johnson noticed it, Screenrant’s Joseph Deckelmeier was wearing a T-shirt with the words “The Hitman,” Hart’s ring nickname.
“One last thing before we leave, and you’ll appreciate it,” Johnson said to Blunt. “Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart, a professional wrestler, was wearing a T-shirt that didn’t need him to be nice to me as a newcomer. He comes from a well-known wrestling family. Even though he was World Champion at the time, a lot of guys in the sport didn’t welcome me because of his status.”
“That person, Bret, who was World Champion at the time, told me how it’s done,” Johnson explained. Johnson responded to Blunt’s query about why Hart was so accommodating by mentioning that they both enjoy wrestling. “Most likely because our families knew each other and he knew I came from a wrestling background and had a true love and respect for the sport. When I have the opportunity, I try to give him credit.”
His grandpa is “High Chief” Peter Maivia. Rikishi and the Usos (Jimmy and Jessie Uso) are also members of the Anoa’i family, as is Roman Reigns, the current WWE Universal Champion. All of Hart’s 12 children, including Stu Hart, became wrestlers or married wrestlers. Owen Hart, Hart’s deceased brother, was also a wrestler and a wrestling superstar in his own right.
John Cena’s view on Dwayne Johnson
In a socially distant video interview, John Cena appears to support The Rock’s return to the WWE in every way. Cena recently returned to the ring and didn’t say anything about how great it would be if The Rock did the same thing and returned to the ring. Cena stated that The Rock’s return to WWE will be a graceful move for both WWE and The Rock.
