  Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) - WhoABC Celebrities Guide
Born Dwayne Douglas Johnson in Miami in 1972, The Rock was the grandson of Samoan wrestler High Chief Peter Maivia and the son of wrestler Rocky Johnson.
Johnson made his WWE debut as Rocky Maivia, which combined his father and grandfather's ring names; Johnson was initially reluctant to the idea, but was persuaded to go ahead with the name by Vince McMahon and Jim Ross.
Johnson, who was first portrayed as a clean-cut babyface, was pushed heavily from the start despite his lack of in-ring experience.
