2019 has taken away many people. 2020 started with bad news too. The father of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and a former wrestler passed away last January 15 and was announced through the statement issued by World Wrestling Entertainment.

Mr. Johnson started his career in the mid-1960s and called himself “the king of dropkick” and was inducted last 2008 in the WWE Hall of Fame. The name “Rocky Johnson” was then brought into the light because of Mr. Johnson’s admiration for the first black Heavyweight Boxing Champion; Rocky Marciano and Jack Johnson.

Born on August 24, 1944, as Wayde Douglas Bowles, Mr. Johnson battled racism in his early years as a wrestler not engaging himself in degrading performances. He also revealed that there was also racism in wrestling but is now more covered up. He was later on addressed by his fans as Soul Man and was paired up with another black wrestler Tony Atlas in a duo called Soul Patrol. Together they became the first African-American World Tag Team Champions in the history of WWE after they defeated the Wild Samoans in 1983. He also faced other famous opponents like Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, Don Muraco and many more.

Mr. Johnson then trained his son Dwayne Johnson to follow his trail. Mr. Johnson confessed that he was back then very hard to his son but amidst those, Dwayne did not give up. Dwayne then started going in the ring in 1996 and soon started his acting career in 2004. Grateful and an appreciative of his father’s sacrifices, Dwayne decided to buy his father a new home. They then started to look for properties. The famous actor said that his father was tongue-tied the moment he revealed his planned gift for his father and was very happy and proud of him. He was then happy and said that it felt good to gave his father something meaningful.

The Jumanji actor admitted that he didn’t understand his father before and hated him for being so tough but later on came to realize that he was rather grateful for all of it. He also said that he loves his father and was happy to give back to his father.
