The Rock is one of the biggest names not only in WWE but also in Hollywood. He has come a long way since starting as an actor. He has been featured in a number of popular films over the years. In a recent interview on Rotating podcasts, ‘The Great One’ was asked which star has inspired him since his debut.
The Rock chooses Will Smith
Here’s what he said [as transcribed by Wrestling-Edge]: “When I first started my business, I always looked at Will Smith because it was the early 2000s when he was the biggest star in the world. He’s producing, he’s singing, he’s incorporating his music into his films. So I always looked at Will at that time. I was like Will at the time as the biggest star in the world. Johnny Depp, George Clooney, people like that and I remember thinking ‘Wow, I’d love to see Will’s career.’”
Speaking on the same podcast, “The Brahma Bull” was asked to describe what he is best at.
“Hula horizontal,” The Rock said with a laugh.
The former WWE champion was asked about his game plan, and the hosts compared it to a movie script.
“Yes, you have a beginning and an end. If you’re good, you get two [climaxes]” he said while everyone laughed along.
When asked what he’s best at, The Rock playfully notes that, besides the horizontal hula, he’s also excellent at the things he’s passionate about.
“I think I’m pretty good at a lot of things. In terms of being the best at something, besides, in terms of egotism, I’m pretty good at the things I love to do and the things I love to do, I’m passionate about.”
