Dwayne Johnson’s Childhood
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was born on May 2, 1972, in Hayward, California. His father, Rocky Johnson, was a professional wrestler, and his mother, Ata Maivia, was the daughter of Peter Maivia, another famous wrestler.
When he was a child, Dwayne Johnson’s family moved frequently due to his father’s wrestling career. He lived in various places, including New Zealand, Hawaii, and Pennsylvania.

However, he also excelled in sports, playing football in high school and college. He attended the University of Miami on a full football scholarship and played for the Miami Hurricanes team, which won a national championship in 1991.
After college, Johnson briefly played professional football but was eventually cut from the team. He then decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a professional wrestler, and eventually became one of the most successful and popular wrestlers of all time, before transitioning to a successful acting career.

While still an active wrestler, Johnson began making appearances in movies, with his breakthrough role coming in 2001 in “The Mummy Returns,” where he played the character of the Scorpion King.
