An American and Canadian actor, producer and semi-retired professional wrestler, signed with WWE. Johnson is half-Black and half-Samoan. His father, Rocky Johnson, is a Black Canadian, from Nova Scotia, and part of the first Black tag team champions in WWE history back when it was known as the WWF along with Tony Atlas. His mother is Samoan and the daughter of Peter Maivia, who was also a pro wrestler. Maivia's wife, Lia Maivia, was one of wrestling's few female promoters, taking over Polynesian Pacific Pro Wrestling after her husband's death in 1982, until 1988. Through his mother, he is considered a non-blood relative of the Anoa'i wrestling family. On March 29, 2008, The Rock inducted his father and his grandfather into the WWE Hall of Fame. As of 2014, Johnson has a home in Southwest Ranches, Florida as well as Los Angeles, California. He also owns a farm in Virginia. In 2009, Johnson gained citizenship in Canada in honor of his father's background. Though Johnson was previously registered as a Republican, he voted for Barack Obama in the 2008 and 2012 United States presidential elections and is now an independent voter. He stated he did not vote in the 2016 U.S. election. In recognition of his service to the Samoan people, and because he is a descendant of Samoan chiefs, Johnson had the noble title of Seiuli bestowed upon him by Malietoa Tanumafili II during his visit there in July 2004. He received a partial Samoan pe'a tattoo on his left side in 2003,and, in 2017, had the small "Brahma bull" tattoo on his right arm covered with a larger half-sleeve tattoo of a bull's skull. Johnson married Dany Garcia on May 3, 1997. Their only child together, a daughter named Simone, was born in August 2001. On June 1, 2007, they announced they were splitting up amicably. Johnson then began dating Lauren Hashian, daughter of Boston drummer Sib Hashian. They first met in 2006 while Johnson was filming The Game Plan. Their first child together, a daughter, was born in December 2015. Their second child, another daughter, was born in April 2018. Johnson attended the 2000 Democratic National Convention as part of WWE's non-partisan "Smackdown Your Vote" campaign, which aimed to influence young people to vote. He also had a speaking role at the 2000 Republican National Convention that same year. In 2006, Johnson founded the Dwayne Johnson Rock Foundation, a charity working with at-risk and terminally ill children. On October 2, 2007, he and his ex-wife donated $1 million to the University of Miami to support the renovation of its football facilities; it was noted as the largest donation ever given to the university's athletics department by former students. The University of Miami renamed the Hurricanes' locker room in Johnson's honor. In 2015, Johnson donated $1,500 to a GoFundMe to pay for an abandoned dog's surgery. In 2017, he donated $25,000 to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. In 2018, Johnson donated a gym to a military base in Oahu, Hawaii. After the 2018 Hawaii floods, he worked with Malama Kauai, a nonprofit organization, to help repair damages caused by the floods.

Descendant d'une lignée de catcheurs professionnels (son père et son grand-père ont tous deux combattu sur les rings de la World Wrestling Federation), Dwayne Johnson se destine dès son plus jeune âge à une carrière sportive. Remarqué au lycée puis à l'université pour ses qualités de défenseur au football américain, il rejoint les rangs des Calgary Stampeders dans le championnat canadien de 1995. Mais, victime d'une blessure, il s'oriente finalement vers la discipline qui fera sa gloire : le catch. Dwayne Johnson fait ses débuts sur le ring de la WWF en novembre 1996 sous le nom de Rocky Maivia et devient à 24 ans le plus jeune champion intercontinental. Après une absence consécutive à une blessure, il revient sous le nom de The Rock. Triple champion du monde, champion intercontinental et champion par équipe, il domine la discipline et devient un personnage inévitable du petit écran, multipliant, outre ses apparitions sur le ring, publicités et petits rôles dans des séries télévisées (notamment un épisode de Star Trek : Voyager et un autre de That 70's Show dans lequel il interprète son propre père, le catcheur Rocky Johnson). En 2001, The Rock fait ses débuts sur grand écran dans Le Retour de la momie. Le succès de ce blockbuster est tel que l'acteur bodybuildé reprend l'année suivante le rôle du Roi Scorpion dans le film éponyme de Chuck Russell. Formaté roi de la castagne, il prend explicitement la relève d'Arnold Schwarzenegger dans le registre de l'action avec la comédie d'aventure Bienvenue dans la jungle (2004), bientôt suivie du film de baston Tolérance zéro (id.) et de l'adaptation du jeu vidéo Doom (2005). Ne souhaitant pas rester cantonné aux personnages de brute épaisse, il fait preuve d'autodérision en incarnant un garde du corps gay dans Be cool (2005), la suite de Get shorty, et en prêtant main forte à Max la menace, alias Steve Carell. Évitant de se prendre au sérieux, Dwayne Johnson joue également dans des films destinés à toute la famille. Il commence en 2007 avec Maxi Papa, le rôle d'un quarterback qui découvre qu'il a une fille d'une précédente relation, puis continue avec une voix pour le film d'animation Planète 51. En 2009, il tient le rôle principal de La Montagne ensorcelée, qui le voit aider deux enfants dans le pétrin, et joue une fée en rédemption, qui collecte les dents de lait des enfants dans Fée malgré lui (2010). Le comédien marque son retour aux films musclés lorsqu'il forme un duo de choc au destin tragi-comique dans Very Bad Cops, réalisé par Adam McKay. Il revient l'année suivante à son personnage-type de gros bras peu finaud dans Faster, avant de jouer un policier teigneux dans Fast and Furious 5 (2011), 6, 7 et 8. Toujours en 2013, Dwayne Johnson est à l'affiche de plusieurs autres films (très) musclés, à savoir Infiltré, G.I. Joe : Conspiration et No Pain No Gain où il livre une prestation étonnante. L'année suivante, l'ex-catcheur prête son physique imposant au demi-dieu Hercule sous la direction de Brett Ratner.

Dwayne Douglas Johnson, conosciuto anche come The Rock (Hayward, 2 maggio 1972), è un attore, wrestler e produttore cinematografico statunitense di origini canadesi e samoane. Figlio e nipote d'arte rispettivamente di Rocky Johnson e di Peter Maivia, entrambi wrestler e membri della famiglia Anoa'i, Dwayne è pertanto definito un wrestler di terza generazione; inoltre diversi suoi zii, cugini e nipoti sono stati wrestler. Inizialmente noto come Rocky Maivia, dal 1996 al 2004 ha avuto successo nella World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment (WWF/E) come una delle figure cardine e tra le più carismatiche dell'Attitude Era: è infatti riconosciuto come la seconda icona più importante di questo periodo. Nel 2011 ha fatto il suo ritorno alla WWE e ha continuato a lottare sporadicamente fino ad oggi. Johnson ha vinto diciannove titoli nel corso della sua carriera da wrestler, di cui dieci mondiali (il WWF/E Championship otto volte e il WCW/World Championship due). Ha vinto anche l'Intercontinental Championship per due volte e il WWF Tag Team Championship per cinque volte. È stato inoltre il sesto wrestler a fregiarsi della Triple Crown e il vincitore della Royal Rumble (2000), mentre all'annuale e principale evento in pay-per-view della WWF/E, WrestleMania, ha lottato nel main event in cinque occasioni: nelle edizioni XV, 2000, X-Seven, XXVIII e 29. Oltre a ciò, il nome dello show settimanale SmackDown deriva da una delle sue famose catchphrase: "Laying the SmackDown!". The Rock possiede inoltre il record di maggiori partecipazioni nei main event di Raw (trentotto nel 2000), di SmackDown (trentasei nel 2000), e, assieme a Stone Cold Steve Austin (dodici nel 2001), di eventi in pay-per-view in un solo anno (dodici nel 2000). In seguito la compagnia stessa lo ha inserito al primo posto in diverse classifiche tra cui: la più grande rivalità di WrestleMania (vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin), la più grande superstar nella storia di SmackDown e superstar più divertente nella storia della WWE. Il suo primo ruolo da protagonista per un film fu Il Re Scorpione nel 2002, a cui hanno fatto seguito Il tesoro dell'Amazzonia, Doom, Faster e la saga di Fast & Furious a partire dal quinto capitolo. Detiene inoltre un Guinness dei primati, grazie alle 105 fotografie scattate con i fan in tre minuti, durante la première del film San Andreas del 2015. Nel dicembre 2015 il mensile americano Muscle and Fitness lo ha nominato "uomo del secolo"; nel 2016 viene insignito di altri vari riconoscimenti: il settimanale statunitense TIME lo ha incluso tra le 100 persone più influenti al mondo, la nota rivista Forbes ha riportato come Johnson sia stato l'attore più pagato al mondo nel 2015, con un guadagno di 64,6 milioni di dollari, la rivista People lo ha incoronato "uomo più sexy del mondo" e il periodico sportivo di diffusione internazionale Sports Illustrated lo ha rappresentato in una delle proprie copertine.
