The Rock's storied career has been long and successful, so I will keep this brief.
The son of Rocky Johnson and grandson of Peter Maivia, The Rock made his debut in the WWE in 1996 as Rocky Maivia, a "blue chipped" face that bored fans and earned him chants of "Die Rocky Die!"
He would then turn heel and become The Rock. He joined the Nation in 1997, eventually taking power from Faarooq. His early career was marked by his various Intercontinental championship runs.
He joined the Corporation in 1998, which greatly turned fans against him. It was during this time he had great success.
He went on to form the Rock n' Sock Connection in 1999, win the Royal Rumble in 2000 and continue as a top performer with the company. He would retire from full-time wrestling in 2003.
Since then, he makes part-time appearances when he is not making movies in Hollywood. He last wrestled at WresleMania this year, defeating John Cena by pinfall.
He will forever be remembered as a "jabroni beater" and a "pie eater."
2000 Royal Rumble winner, five-time WWE Tag Team champion, two-time Intercontinental champion, seven-time WWE champion, two-time World Heavyweight champion
