Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Has Officially Announced That He Is Retiring From Wrestling

Today Dwayne Johnson is famous for many things, his wrestling career, his acting, his production projects, and many other things. But he became famous first as a wrestler, and he soon became a WWE legend.

But the day has come, and The Rock has officially announced that he is retiring from wrestling. He wanted to let his fans know that he will no longer wrestle and that it is time for him to hung up his wrestling boots.

In an interview, he said that he loves wrestling very much and that he misses wrestling. He was asked if he would ever come back to wrestling. He said that he quietly retired from wrestling because he was very lucky to have a great career and because he managed to accomplish what he wanted to accomplish. He also said that there is nothing like a live crowd and a live audience. Dwayne Johnson grew up in wrestling, and his whole family was involved. His grandfather wrestled, and his dad wrestled.

His first-ever wrestling match was in WWE was in Madison Square Garden, and he remembers that time very fondly. He said that if it weren’t for wrestling, he wouldn’t be here where he is today. Pro wrestling got him where he is today.

He became one of the most famous wrestlers, and he started his career way back in 1996, but he took a break 15 years ago. He returned to wrestling in 2012, and he fought the famous John Cena. From that year he managed to both act and wrestle. But the time has come for him to focus more on his acting career now.

But that just means that we will be able to see more of Dwayne Johnson on the big screen. And we will be able to enjoy his new upcoming projects and movies. But he will always be our most favorite WWE wrestler.

5 WWE Wrestlers Who Should Follow Dwayne Johnson and John Cena’s Footsteps to Hollywood

Two of the biggest WWE wrestlers, Dwayne Johnson and John Cena, have also become huge names in Hollywood. These two wrestlers are big-name actors now and we thought that there are other WWE wrestlers who should follow their footsteps to Hollywood. Here are five new possible Hollywood stars which can come from the WWE world.

Roman Reigns

Roman is the one who should definitely follow Dwayne Johnson and John Cena’s example when it comes to Hollywood. He is quite close to The Rock, which can be very helpful. In fact, Roman Reigns has a role in the new ‘Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw’. Plus, he has the looks and his promos are becoming better and better.

Bray Wyatt

Bray might be one of the weirdest WWE characters so far, but no one can argue his talent. He has outstanding promos and he is unbelievable in his pre-taped vignettes. Where we see him are probably horror films if he ever decides to transition to the big screen. Bray’s acting skills definitely set him apart from his fellow wrestlers.

Triple H

Triple H has had his presence on the screen playing a role in ‘Blade III’ and ‘The Chaperone’. He has got everything he needs to make it into Hollywood, including the looks. Moreover, people seem to like him and he has appeal outside of the WWE world. Triple H is best and the only wrestler who can cut a 20-minute live promo.

Dolph Ziggler isn’t only an excellent WWE wrestler, but also a very famous stand-up artist. He seems to be very successful outside the WWE ring and has even acted in ‘Countdown’. He has all it takes to succeed in Hollywood, such as the ability to talk, charisma, and looks. He has a huge potential of becoming the next Hollywood star.

The Miz

The Miz seems to be destined to make it to the big screen. He has had a number of straight to DVD/Blu-Ray starring roles in the Marine. When he speaks, everyone is hooked on his words. Plus, the babyface is something Hollywood looks for.

Top 10 Salaries of WWE Wrestlers

/

Watching WWE superstars performing their amazing stunts in and around the ring has often made people wonder how much they make. The answer to that question is somewhat complicated.

First of all, WWE never releases to the public the information about their superstars’ salaries. It has been a long-standing company policy and it isn’t changing any time soon. That being said, we can make a pretty accurate assumption from bits and details let out.

WWE wrestlers earn their money from several income streams. The most obvious is their contract with the organization, but they also receive money from sales of all personalized items, like action figures and T-shirts. Appearances on comic conventions also bring some cash.

As their clout within WWE increases and their popularity with the fans increases, they can earn additional bonuses, like a percentage of gate sales and, for the top tier performers, a cut of pay-per-view income. They also have significant perks, like first-class air travel or personal busses for tours.

And on top is naturally John Cena, one of the most popular WWE superstars in history. As he slowly moves to acting, his career in WWE is winding down, but he will still earn considerable money from it for the rest of his life.

Pro Wrestling will never again feature stars like Dwayne Johnson, Steve Austin and John Cena

Today’s WWE is vastly different from the wrestling in the Attitude Era or the era of Ruthless Aggression. Controversial and extreme storylines are gone, and so is the blood. WWE is now a worldwide entertainment, and it needs to be PG. What this means is that the current era has to tend to a wider variety of audience. The thing that changed the most unfortunately are the stars, as nobody reached the levels of Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock or John Cena.

WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray, also known by his WWE stage name Bubba Ray Dudley, appeared on the Jim Ross Podcast where he discussed wrestling. He criticized the quality of Raw, saying how the storylines became worse. In addition, he revealed the cause behind the lack of stars and why there will never again be someone like that.

Seth Rollins has done it all and can do it all. But how come Seth Rollins is not at Cena level? How come he’s not at Rock level? How come he’s not at Austin level? It’s because I don’t think they will ever allow anyone to get to that level again. If you take the three biggest stars over the last 20-some-odd years, would you say that Cena, Austin, and The Rock are the three biggest ones? Okay, so those three guys in their own way do what they wanted to do without Vince’s approval. Listen, Steve was able to walk out and still come back and have a job. [Ross] helped out a lot, but not a lot of people walk out and come back in the next day.”

“Rocky was able to walk away and become the biggest star in Hollywood. And John, my God! He just won the Muhammad Ali Award. He [has] granted more wishes than anybody on the planet. I mean, he walks on water when it comes to the WWE. And he was able to tell Vince, ‘I’m not [going to Saudi Arabia].’ I don’t think they’re ever going to let anybody get to that level again where they have control or say.”

WWE invested in Roman Reigns, and wanted him to take over the stardom. He took part in the main-event of WrestleMania four times in a row, but was sadly diagnosed with leukemia. He is now on an indefinite break from WWE in order to get better, which left WWE without its biggest star. Hopefully, the void will get filled, as many popular wrestlers remain with Seth Rollins, Elias, Finn Balor and Braun Strowman.

The question still remains. Can any of these guys become as widely recognizable and famous as the legends of old, who went on to become even bigger stars in other entertainment business? Only time will tell.
