If The Rock pulls on his Superman tights to save the day for WWE, it can’t just be to better sinking ratings. He has to make at least one Superstar a made man.

As a transcendent star with both mainstream appeal and enduring adulation from wrestling fans, The Rock’s presence on the WWE stage is hugely powerful. Just standing toe-to-toe with him will elevate an emerging star’s career. And defeating him is among the holy grails that a current Superstar can seize.

That opportunity may soon arise.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h/t Wrestling Inc’s Marc Middleton), company officials and The Rock are in the midst of serious discussions about doing something together by the end of the year.

With WrestleMania season not yet in view, this is surprising until one reflects on Raw’s recent struggles. Ratings have been low—Christmas-season low. Not even Brock Lesnar has been able to change that.

The Beast Incarnate showed up in Boston on Monday night and failed to move the needle. As noted by James Caldwell on Pro Wrestling Torch, “Monday’s Raw scored a 2.35 rating, basically even with a 2.33 rating last week.”

It appears, then, that WWE is going for an even bigger megastar to get those numbers headed in the right direction.

The Brahma Bull would certainly help with viewership, but he would just represent a Band-Aid for a deeper problem. How long would The Rock stick around? Once WrestleMania 32 is over, he’d surely head back to Hollywood.

So while he would bolster the present, WWE has to also be thinking of how to best use him to build for the future.

If he and Triple H work together, as is rumored by F4WOnline.com (h/t Wrestle Zone), their rivalry would have massive amounts of star power. However, it would do nothing for WWE moving ahead. Once they have their final showdown, they would both return from where they came, with no one left to benefit from the boost their story created.

WWE cannot just have The Rock tangle with the top, already-established guys. Lesnar, Triple H and John Cena don’t need the kind of career-altering effect a feud with him would have.

The company, as Daniel Bryan pointed out recently, has a bad habit of putting these kinds of guys on two different planes.

In an interview with Abu Dhabi’s the National, Bryan said, “There is almost this mentality these stars are bigger than the current stars, and they keep going with the mentality when the guys now are every bit as good as the guys from before, it is just they need to be given the platform.”

A program with The Great One is the kind of platform that he’s talking about.

Put Roman Reigns in there against his cousin. Have The Rock and Rusev go to battle, building off their previous confrontation. Show off Seth Rollins’ destructive power by having him leave The Rock hobbled.

WWE has to pick who will lead the next generation and make a sustained effort to elevate them. That includes taking risks by putting them in big spots. That includes letting them be the one to trade haymakers with The Rock.

As Bleacher Report’s Matt Camp said, WWE committed to Steve Austin as he rose up the ranks. The company remained patient as his star grew. It had him collide with the two biggest stars of the time in Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels.

Having someone cross paths with and ultimately topple The Rock would be that same kind of commitment.

That would make a major statement about the place of Reigns, Rollins or whoever gets that role in the company hierarchy.

The Rock’s potential return has to be seen as a chance to pass a torch. That won’t happen if he’s handing it off to someone who already has a torch of their own in hand.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be the new “Spokesman of Service” for Ford Motor Company.

On Oct. 12, the company will roll out a series of ads on TV, digital, social networks, radio and point-of-sale inside Ford Dealerships featuring the Freedom grad who will lead the team of Specialists made up of Ford service technicians.

Johnson said on Facebook representing Ford’s service department echoes one of his core enterprise beliefs – “Always take care of the audience” whether it’s in a movie theater or behind the wheel.

Johnson owns three Ford trucks, but his first Ford truck was bought when he was 15.

“I bought a classic blue ’77 Thunderbird as my first car for $40 bucks,” he says. “I didn’t even have money to put gas in it, but it was all mine and I’ve been a FORD man ever since.”

Johnson, who attended Freedom High School in 11th and 12th grades, started out as a professional wrestler known as “The Rock.”

He left World Wrestling Entertainment in 2003 to pursue an acting career, which quickly took off with “The Scorpion King.”

Also coming up for Johnson is the Disney animated film “Moana” in which he voices the demigod Maui, a comedy with Kevin Hart called “Central Intelligence” and he’ll portray super villain Black Adam in Shazam!

On last night, Dwayne Johnson shared a heartbreaking story with us about his adorable puppy Brutus, who was playing in the yard with his brother Hobbs. Brutus found what seemed to be a harmless mushroom and ate it. He became sick so Dwayne took him to the vet. Brutus was put on life support because his immune system and organs were failing. At about 11:15 pm, Dwayne and Lauren (Dwayne’s Girlfriend) decided to end Brutus’ suffering and let him be at peace.

As we all know, Dwayne is a strong guy who rarely has an emotional moment. His post on Instagram made us see things differently. He wrote:

“I wish I could have saved you one last time.”

Those words were all that I needed to see to realize how much the loss of any life can affect loved ones.

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

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.
