The Rock and Nick Khan

WWE Legend The Rock has revealed his surprising history with WWE president Nick Khan in a heartfelt social media post.

The Rock has known Nick Khan and his sister, Nahnatchka Khan, since the three of them were children. In a post on social media, the ‘People’s Champion’ has spoken about a time in the mid-1980s when they would meet up in Honolulu, Hawaii every month when his grandmother was running pro wrestling shows.

He also spoke about how their love for the wrestling business has been important to their lives, with The Rock becoming one of the biggest stars in WWE, Nick Khan going on to become WWE President, and Nanatchka Khan creating ‘Young Rock’ the TV series chronicling the ‘Great One’s early years.

“This one’s special.
Means a lot to me.
Years in the making.

In the mid 1980’s, Nick Khan, his sister Nahnatchka Khan and myself used to run around as kids in Honolulu, Hawaii every month when my grandmother would promote at the local arena her monthly pro wrestling shows.

As kids we LOVED the pro wrestling business and as adults, our love and respect for the wrestling business has become boundless.

Now years later….

Nick is WWE PRESIDENT.

Nahnatchka is one of the best TV show runners in Hollywood and the CREATOR OF YOUNG ROCK ~ our award winning TV series on NBC, based on my wild upbringing in the world of pro wrestling.

And I’ve gone on to do a thing or two.

Life is unpredictable.
Amazing.
Here we all are.”

While Nick Khan only joined WWE in August 2020 as President and Chief Revenue Officer, he is reportedly the favourite to succeed Vince McMahon when the WWE Chairman steps down from his position.

In his short time in the company, Khan has already made waves, being widely seen as one of the driving forces behind both the recent revamp of NXT to NXT 2.0 as well as the budget cuts which have led to many WWE Superstars being released from their contracts.
