Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson And His Dad

Big Rock and Little Rock both look pretty snazzy as this 1981 photo shows.

You can clearly see where Dwayne Johnson got his muscles from. “The Rock” grew up in a family of professional wrestlers. Not only was his dad, Rocky Johnson – a professional wrestler, but also his grandfather: “High Chief” Peter Maivia. His uncles, Afa and Sika Anoaʻi were known as “The Wild Samoans.” In fact, Johnson’s grandmother, Lia Maivia, was one of wrestling’s few female promoters in Polynesian Pacific Pro Wrestling.

So it was no surprise that Dwayne started of as a wrestler before embarking on a movie acting career.
