The Rock is one of the greatest WWE Superstars of all time. If we take his wrestling career and nothing else , we will meet one of the most blockbusters and loved by the fans, but if we choose his step as an actor, we will also see one of the most important of the current Hollywood.

“Yes, I considered fighting in the UFC 10 years ago. My goal was for Greg Jackson to be my coach and invest two years in doing it . I preferred not to continue with the idea because I wanted to have my jaw intact “
It is not uncommon for a professional wrestler to take the plunge into mixed martial arts, as the foundations between both sports (saving distances) are no different, examples such as Bobby Lashley or Brock Lesnar showed that the transition can be done smoothly.
