Dwayne Johnson is one of the few wrestlers who has successfully transitioned to Hollywood. Johnson became famous as The Rock on WWE first. And we have to thank a particular person for his fame.
It is none other than his ex-wife Dany Garcia. The two met in college and fell in love. Garcia became his girlfriend as well as manager for most of Johnson’s professional wrestling career. And even though the two split way back in 2008, they still remain close friends.
Which is why Dwayne Johnson took to social media to congratulate her recently. Dany Garcia is returning to bodybuilding this year, and The Rock couldn’t be prouder. In an Instagram post, he congratulated her on her official return to the sport.

What. A. Journey. A huge congratulations Dany, for this incredible achievement. Your level of discipline and hard work is the anchor for which you will always succeed in life, but it’s your HUMILITY in this moment that’s the true blessing. And to my strength and conditioning coach @daverienzi, you beautifully expressed and narrated this one my brother. Dany ~ @laurenhashianofficial and I, could not be more proud. Congrats again, my friend. 👏🏾💪🏾 Onward. Family.
Garcia made her comeback to the International Federation of Bodybuilding stage last month in September. But now the question arises, will Dwayne Johnson follow her footsteps? As in, will the actor make his return to the world of wrestling?
Judging by his response to Randy Orton, it’s a no. The two third-generation wrestling superstars have never been in a one-on-one match. This is because The Rock retired way back in 2004 when Orton was still a rising star. But now, after winning the WWE world championship 13 times, Orton is challenging Johnson.
.@TheRock I see you will be at #SmackdownOnFox this Friday. How about you & I have a discussion about who’s the greatest 3rd generation of all time and we answer that question April 5th in Tampa At Wrestlemania 36. A vipers sense of smell is unmatched. I smell what you’re cooking

In a series of tweets, Orton or ‘The Viper’ challenged Johnson to a match in WrestleMania. The Jumanji actor is already slated to appear in Smackdown on Friday, so it will be the perfect chance for both stars to wrestle it out. However, Johnson has gently turned down the challenge.
U think Bob O Sr & Chief Maivia along with our pops’ Bob Jr & the Soulman ran up and down those roads for decades taking bumps just so we can sell out WM36 so you can RKO my ass thru the earth. My body’s still recovering from that Evolution beatdown you gave me at WM20 😂

This denial is mainly because of a grave injury he suffered after his last fight with John Cena. This abdominal wound caused the actor to miss many of his important shoots. And he probably can’t risk that again.
But we are still hoping he takes the risk!
