In 1995, Before Dwayne Johnson became “The Rock” even before he became “Rocky Maivia”, he was into wrestling. He wrestled at Jerry Lawler’s United States Wrestling Association as Flex Kavana. Below is his very first tv match. This is for all of you Rock fans who think his first match was Survivor Series 1996.

Newly confirmed wrestlers for WWE 2K16 include the more obvious additions of The Rock and Undertaker, but also of the late, great Macho Man and Rick Rude. We also get a special look at Brock Lesnar’s entrance video.

WWE, 2K and Yuke’s have confirmed that Aiden English, Andre The Giant, Batista, Chris Jericho, Curtis Axel, Edge, Erick Rowan, Fandango, John “Bradshaw” Layfield, Luke Harper, “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Natalya, Ravishing Rick Rude, R-Truth, Ryback, Santino Marella, Sergeant Slaughter, Simon Gotch, Stephanie McMahon, The Rock and Undertaker have all been added to WWE 2K16. While we figured that guys like The Rock, Undertaker and Batista were a given, we’re still surprised that the Vaudevillians would be included.

This group joins the previously announced other roster members of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Daniel Bryan, Dean Ambrose, Bad News Barrett (notice not King Barret), Finn Balor, Seth Rollins, Booker T, Colonel Mustafa, Emma, Eva Marie, General Adnan, Kalisto, Kane, Lord Steven Regal, Sin Cara, Summer Rae, Tamina,Triple H, Adam Rose, Zack Ryder, Bo Dallas, Brie Bella, Nikki Bella, Brock Lesnar, Goldust, Heath Slater, Hideo Itami, Jack Swagger, Kevin Owens, Neville, Sami Zayn, Roman Reigns, Stardust, Tyler Breeze, Sting, Ultimate Warrior, Ric Flair, Alicia Fox, Bam Bam Bigelow, The Big Show, Cameron, Cesaro, Darren Young, Diamond Dallas Page, Dolph Ziggler, Finlay, Kevin Nash, Layla, Lex Luger, The Miz, Naomi, Randy Orton, Sheamus, Titus O’Neil and Tyson Kidd. We’re getting awfully close to finalizing that list of the 120 wrestlers that will be included in WWE 2K16′s starting roster.

WWE 2K16 will debut on Oct. 27 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Pre-ordering the game will unlock the Terminator on the roster, despite the Governator never being a wrestler or playing one in any of his movies.

Ballers.2015.S01E03.INTERNAL.HDTV.x264-BATV_00_08_18_08_311

Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron will pull on Baywatch’s famous red trunks and head for the Pacific in a big screen take on the cheesy 90s TV show, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The new version is expected to be an R-rated comedy in the vein of the 21 Jump Street films, which have proven a critical and commercial success by revisiting the long-running 80s show about police officers going undercover at US high schools. Horrible Bosses’ Seth Gordon has signed on to direct.

Johnson took to Twitter to welcome Efron to the cast and paint a picture of the new movie’s tone, which he described as “big, fun and RATED R”. The R rating is an approximate equivalent to the 15 certificate in the UK.

The film will take the form of a buddy comedy in which Johnson’s straight-laced lifeguard (Johnson) is forced to unite with a youthful rule-breaking newcomer (Efron) when the beach they both love faces destruction courtesy of the avaricious attentions of a nefarious oil tycoon.

Efron rose to fame in the High School Musical movies, but has since proven his comedy chops in 2014’s Bad Neighbours as a frat house brat who plagues the lives of a young married couple (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne). Johnson brings global megastar status to the project, having become one of the top earning stars in Hollywood in recent years thanks to the success of the Fast and Furious movies and this summer’s big budget disaster movie San Andreas.

The original Baywatch show ran for 12 years between 1989 and 2001, spawning spin-offs such as Baywatch Hawaii and Baywatch Nights. There has been talk of a movie for many years, but no film previously made it to the production stage.

It is not clear if original stars such as David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson will take a role in the big screen version, but it would be no surprise to see them enjoying cameos. Johnny Depp and Richard Grieco, the original stars of 21 Jump Street, have appeared in the first and second film versions respectively.

It’s been said many, many times that no one does #TBT as well as The Rock.

Given that the MTV Video Music Awards are this Sunday, we wanted to help Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson with his #TBT photo and suggested this picture from the 2000 VMAs.

The People’s Champion saw our tweet and critiqued his outfit with brutal honesty.

Yes, The Rock even managed to make his co-presenter that evening, Kid Rock, look like a fashion maven

the meaning of dj tattoo_00_01_06_09_48the meaning of dj tattoo_00_02_03_06_94

Seeing how WWE has premiered a new show Superstar Ink, which features wrestling’s top superstars sitting down and giving the universe an inside look at their tattoos, we decided to give you an inside glimpse of the story behind Dwayne Johnson’s full Samoan inspired tattoo.

The story behind Dwayne’s tattoo is a very strong and elaborate one. Dwayne went to his tattoo artist and both talked for hours before any work began and even said a prayer. The tattoo was so elaborate that it took 60 hours, three sessions which lasted 20 hours each. The tattoo is a story about his life, his journey. His ancestors and his culture. Dwayne is all about family, as we know he is apart of the Samoan heritage,his mother is Samoan and the African American heritage of his father. He wanted the tattoo to represent him taking care of and protecting his family, the spirit of his ancestors. It also represents great struggle and overcoming that great struggle. Also of how he is appreciative of his success. The spirit also of Puumana (which means spirit of the flower) which in his story means the spirit of the woman. Dwayne says how blessed he has been to have a family of strong women. His whole tattoo means basically three things: family, protecting his family and having a very aggressive warrior spirit. You can’t hold his spirit down, he will keep fighting. This is why the majority of the tattoo is on his heart. It gives him peace. He says that he has enough story to cover his body in tattoos. One thing is for sure the Samoan Dynasty is one strong family. We look forward to the next steps this family takes.

Saddled with a soft lead-in and up against the big premiere of AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead,” HBO’s Dwayne Johnson football comedy “Ballers” wrapped its first season with its smallest same-night tune-in to date, but it still finishes as the network’s most-watched half-hour program in six years.

Sunday’s episode averaged 1.43 million viewers, according to Nielsen “live plus same-day estimates,” below its previous low of 1.57 million set one week earlier. After getting a solid lead-in from “True Detective” for most of its run, “Ballers” has aired behind the lightly watched “Show Me A Hero” for its last two weeks. On Sunday, “Hero” drew just 397,000 for its 9 p.m. airing.

According to the network’s analysis of Nielsen data, “Ballers” averaged a gross weekly multi-platform audience of 8.8 million viewers. That puts it third all-time among HBO comedies, behind “Sex and the City” (10.3 million) and the first season of “Hung” in 2009 (9.3 million).

In “live plus same-day” viewing, “Ballers” bowed in June with 2.16 million viewers, edging out the second-season premiere of “Silicon Valley” (2.13 million) as the network’s most-watched comedy episode since the series finale of “Entourage” in 2011 (2.61 million). Prior to Sunday’s finale, “Ballers” averaged 1.73 million viewers in “live plus same-day” and 2.55 million in “live+3.”

In adults 18-49, a key primetime advertising demo that has relatively little meaning for commercial-free HBO, “Ballers” averaged a series-low 0.71 rating on Sunday. For the season prior to Sunday, it averaged a 0.86 rating in same-day and a 1.31 rating in L+3. It ranks No. 1 among all new scripted cable series for the summer.

HBO’s other new comedy this summer, “The Brink,” quietly performed well and drew 872,000 viewers in “live plus same-day” for its finale. For its season prior to Sunday, the comedy fronted by Jack Black and Tim Robbins averaged 5.5 million viewers to rank seventh among most-watched HBO comedy seasons.

This week on HBO’s Ballers, It is finally the end of Season 1. This is episode 10, the season has to end with a bang right?

Spencer walks in to find his office in shambles. Everything is destroyed. When he asks what happened, they tell him Joe did it. He also finds out that he has a new assistant Virginia and she tells him that he is wanted in the boss’s office. When he gets there, Mr. Anderson asks him if he loves his new office, then he tells him that Joe quit. Spencer tells him that he thought he was fired. He tells him that he has been promoted and Joe couldn’t handle it. He tells Spencer because of his success, he picked him for the promotion.

Spencer leaves Mr. Anderson and heads over to Joe’s house. He asks Joe what happened and Joe says that he wasn’t appreciated there. He was fired. Joe tells Spencer that he wants to start his own company. Spencer tells him from all of Joe’s recklessness at the bar, he is strapped for cash. At least not enough to start a company. Joe says he has money stashed away. Enough to convince a bank to loan him the money. Spencer asks Joe if he knows how to run a company because he doesn’t. Joe wants Spencer to join him.

Spencer finds out that Vernon is still MIA and the Dallas deal is still time sensitive. They find Vernon on Flamingo Island taking photographs. Spencer tells them that they were worried and that it wasn’t cool doing so. Spencer tells Vernon that his deal is due within the day. Spencer tells him the details of the deal and he is excited.

Now this next scene we see Virginia taking a message for Spencer. We hear a woman in the background and you will see what happens…..

Mr. Anderson soon comes the way of Spencer’s office. Virginia yells “hey Mr. Anderson” so Spencer can get himself together and Tracy can leave. Mr. Anderson walks in and asks what did he miss? Spencer tells him she is an old high school friend.
Spencer tells Mr. Anderson that Joe told him that he was fired. Mr. Anderson tries to make an excuse for it but it doesn’t work. Mr. Anderson tries to bribe Spencer more by buying him a boat.

Joe calls for Spencer to come look at an office building. While there Spencer tells Joe that he is not ready for this endeavor and Joe walks out.

Spencer travels to Mr. Anderson’s house and he tells him to let Joe come back to the company. He gives an inspiring speech on how being at the top of the sports dynasty doesn’t happen without him, Joe and Mr. Anderson. He further says that this is a package deal and that he can take it or leave it.

Spencer meets up with Joe later that night before Vernon’s party to persuade him further to come back to the company. Joe agrees and they party. Also he makes things right by Reggie and tells him some plans for the future.

Enjoy the Season 1 Finale

The Rock returning at SummerSlam was talked about a few weeks ago, Dave Meltzer reports in the latest wrestling observer newsletter. He adds that Rock’s return “was hinted to me.”
That sort of insider information has definitely added credibility to mounting speculation that The Rock will be in Brooklyn this weekend. However, Meltzer stopped short of confirming it, stating he wasn’t specifically told that Rock would definitely be there.
WWE would be wanting to keep it a surprise, although in media interviews Roman Reigns has indicated that his cousin could be involved. That could be a trick of the WWE PR machine, tease Rock’s appearance to build interest, but keep the actual return spot as a surprise.
“I wanna tell you but I don’t want to give anything away.” Reigns said. “Let’s just put it this way. It’s The Rock, Dwayne Johnson. Biggest superstar on Earth, possibly. If he wants to show up to Brooklyn, he’s going to show up to Brooklyn. It wouldn’t be the first time, and it probably won’t be the last time. It’s WWE. Anything can happen.”
The comeback angle could be the start of Rock’s narrative for WrestleMania 32, a show he is expected to headline just seven months from now. He’ll be main eventing Mania against Triple H, so fans should expect any SummerSlam angle to involve a verbal clash between The Game and The Great One.
SummerSlam is a four hour show this year, there’s certainly plenty of time for a segment featuring The Rock.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is apparently starring in the long-gestating movie adaptation of Walt Disney’s The Jungle Cruise. The comedic adventure film, based on one of the older Disneyland/Disney World theme park attractions, was positioned as a Tom Hanks/Tim Allen reunion vehicle of sorts for what feels like decades, but nothing ever came of it. Obviously Disney has been going about turning its theme park attractions into movies for a while now, with some (Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl) working better than others (The Country Bears). The project is one of about 467 films that Johnson has lined up. Moreover, his recent decision making points to a career arc not unlike the one Will Smith attempted back in the mid-90′s that eventually turned him into the biggest movie star in the world for a time. In short, Dwayne Johnson is specifically seeking out explicitly commercial movies that people might actually want to see Dwayne Johnson starring in.

That was Will Smith’s career path as well. From 1995 to around 2012, give or take a few “one for me” projects, Mr. Smith specifically picked outwardly commercial high-concept pictures. At first, the emphasis was on science-fiction action movies, as Smith had (not inaccurately) decided that said movies were the clearest path to box office glory. But even when he expanded into other genres (the romantic comedy Hitch, the economic mobility drama The Pursuit of Happyness, the superhero deconstruction Hancock), the commercial impulse was there. And Smith had an astonishing hit streak from 2002 to 2012, with eight straight $100 million+ domestic blockbusters. Regardless of whether you think any of these films were any good, or irrespective of whether you think Smith is any good in them, Will Smith became one of our biggest blockbuster movie stars partially by explicitly choosing movies with overt blockbuster potential. And that, for better or worse, is what Dwayne Johnson is doing.

And because this is 2015 and not 1995, part of the so-called blockbuster package involves either pre-established properties or, in the absence of that, a paper-thin high concept. So the Dwayne Johnson of 2015 is making a movie based on The Jungle Cruise, a movie based on the Baywatch television show, a movie based on the Rampage video game, and a movie based on the DC Comics/Time Warner Inc. title Shazam, where he will play the villainous Black Adam. These are not going to win any Oscars, and I might argue, based on San Andreas and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, that they are almost beneath him in terms of acting challenges. But they are wholly commercial films that will not only give The Rock more blockbuster hits under his belt but will make more money because they starred The Rock than if they didn’t.

He has become something of a pro at the newfangled movie star ideal, which as “big star + prepackaged concept.” The reason I tend to write about Dwayne Johnson a lot, and I am aware that I do, is because he is one of the few big movie stars consistently making big movie star vehicles in this day-and-age. That’s not necessarily a “testament to his genius” or any such silliness so much as an acknowledgment that Hollywood doesn’t make many outright star vehicles anymore. In the era of the concept-driven fantasy tentpole, the star, assuming the studios even opt for a real movie star, is so secondary to the concept that the star is almost beside the point. Sure, Ben Affleck as Batman is a big deal, but the idea of Ben Affleck in a superhero movie is secondary to the notion of a Batman movie. And I don’t have to list the bazillion would-be franchises that were launched on the back of barely-known young male actors.

What’s interesting about The Rock’s upcoming choices, along with the $467 million-grossing San Andreas (his biggest solo hit ever by a lot), is that they are big would-be blockbuster movies where the star is arguably as important, if not more so, than the prepackaged concept. And yes, that’s different from Brett Ratner’s underrated Hercules, which was basically a straight Dwayne Johnson sell and thus “only” made $243m on a $100m budget for Paramount/Viacom Inc. In terms of star vehicle movie stars, there is still Tom Cruise. But he came of age in an era when, to a certain extent, making really good movies in the studio system could make you a star without any franchise potential or prepackaged concepts.

And there is, of course, a downside to all of this, which is why the early Will Smith years come to mind. Even after being in Hollywood for 20 years and earning two Oscar nominations, Smith still has to fight the (rather absurd) notion that he is a soulless blockbuster machine who isn’t that good of an actor. As someone who was shocked by how genuinely good of an actor Dwayne Johnson was in The Rundown and then amused by his “make it look easy” charisma in films like Be Cool and Get Smart, I don’t necessarily want to see the actor disappear entirely into the prefabricated blockbuster machine. Movies like San Andreas will continue to make him a movie star, but I hope he takes the time to knock out a Pain and Gain or a Snitch now and then as well.

But for the moment it will be interesting to see how these explicitly blockbuster-friendly choices play out, both artistically and commercially. The Jungle Cruise, as a movie, will be an interesting challenge. The appeal of the ride is not its would-be spectacle but rather the snarky, sarcastic, and pun-filled narration offered by the riverboat captain each time out (maybe Weird Al Yankovic will cameo as Skipper Dan). Dwayne Johnson, over the last five years or so, has shown a genuine shrewdness in terms of picking the kinds of projects that would not only garner solid box office but would net him more than a little credit for said successes. The game today is not the mere star vehicle but, when it’s available, the star+concept package sell. As such, he is playing the game in a way that reminds me of a younger Will Smith. But I do hope that Dwayne Johnson the actor doesn’t get swallowed whole by Dwayne Johnson the movie star.
