While we celebrate popular Hollywood actor and former wrestler Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock, we often forget that he comes from a lineage of machos. We never really talk about what his family is like; his father, mother, brother, children, wife, aunt, uncles, nephew, nieces and other relatives and friends.
This article won’t be focused on The rock alone, we are taking it to another level and will be talking of Rocky Johnson, The Rock’s Father.
DWAYNE JOHNSON FATHER BIOGRAPHY AND FULL PROFILE. REAL NAME, OCCUPATION, WIFE, KIDS ETC.
Rocky Johnson was born Wayde Douglas Bowles in Amherst, Nova Scotia, where he was raised, the fourth of five sons of Lillian (néeGay) and James Henry Bowles (1888–1967). A Black Nova Scotian, he is descended from Black Loyalists who immigrated to Nova Scotia after escaping from a southern plantation in the United States after the American Revolutionary War, and also has a small amount of Irish ancestry. At the age of 16, Johnson moved to Toronto, Ontario, where he began wrestling and worked as a truck driver. Initially, he trained to be a boxer and eventually sparred with greats such as Muhammad Ali and George Foreman, but he was always fascinated by wrestling.
His career as a wrestler began way back in 1964 in Southern Ontario. After his first match he changed his ring name to Rocky and it very quickly became very common in the mouths of fans. It’s no wonder his son Dwayne Johnson who followed his footsteps went by the name The Rock during his wrestling days.
In 1983, he was recruited by the World Wrestling Federation where he feuded with Don Muraco, Greg Valentine, Mike Sharpe, Buddy Rose, and Adrian Adonis. He was then paired with Tony Atlas as a tag team. They defeated the Wild Samoans (Afa and Sika) for the Tag Team Championship on November 15, 1983. They were the first black tag team to hold the tag title. Together, Johnson and Atlas were known as “The Soul Patrol”
Today his son, The Rock is not only celebrated as a wrestler, but a very successful actor. He currently holds the title of the highest paid Hollywood actor and you’ll be dazzled by how much he charges per movie.
