The Rock has shown yet another string on his extensive bow as he made his debut as a rap star dropping bars on a track by Tech N9ne.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has already conquered the world of professional wrestling with a career that has seen him capture the WWE Championship an incredible eight times as well as headline WrestleMania on five occasions.
After leaving the ring full time, The Rock made a name for himself in Hollywood, breaking into superstardom with his role in The Fast And The Furious franchise which soon spun out to a Hobbs and Shaw franchise starring Johnson and Jason Statham in the lead roles. In 2021 Johnson starred with Emily Blunt in the hugely successful Jungle Cruise as his star continues to shine as Hollywood’s leading man.
Now, The Rock has found himself entering the rap game on Tech N9ne’s new track Face Off that also features Joey Cool, and King Iso.
This isn’t The Rock’s first foray into music however as he had his own song entitled ‘Pie’ on WWE The Music Vol. 5. He also featured on Fugee’s star Wyclef John’s hit song ‘It Doesn’t Matter’ in 2000 providing his trademark catchphrase throughout.
Made my historic rap debut (thankfully I didn’t suck😅) Huge shout to all the hip hop & music fans for your HYPE reactions that are straight f*cking fire 🔥🔥🔥🙏🏾👊🏾
Love to my #StrangeMusic USO’s@TechN9ne🐐@therealJoeyCool@TheRealKingIso#FACEOFF

In July it was reported that The Rock would be heading back to WWE at Survivor Series, this would mark the 25th anniversary of The Great One’s wrestling career which began at the event inside Madison Square Garden in 1996. While it is unclear what that appearance might entail, it was suggested that it may lead to a match at WrestleMania 38. That match would be against current Universal Champion, Roman Reigns.
However, an appearance by The Great One at WrestleMania in 2022 is reportedly far from certain. Writing in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reports that any match featuring the former World Champion depends very much on the man himself, his schedule, and the potential future of the XFL.
“The match will take place if, when and where Johnson wants it to. His schedule is such that there is no lock for anything. In 2023, he may be running the XFL, or movies or even running for president (I doubt it but he’s given that date before as something he’s thought about although the Young Rock story seems to have indicated he’s looking at 2032 if he really ever does it).”
“With him, there is no way to know what his schedule will allow. If he wants to do it, that will be the year he does it. There also may be no XFL, which right now the idea is to bring it back in 2023 but I sense there’s no XFL without a paying TV deal. Obviously Vince McMahon felt that wasn’t going to happen which is why he declared bankruptcy for the league and closed it down. But the feeling right now is 2023, which would seem to mean Lesnar in 2022.”
