What Was So Great About The Rock?


Today, he is one of the most successful Hollywood actors. Back in the late 90s and early 2000s, he was one of the most popular wrestlers that have ever stepped a foot in the ring. He is still loved today by the wrestling fans, even though his in-ring career is most likely over. So, what was so great about The Rock that made him one of the most popular people in the world today?

He started off as a face but was rejected by the fans. That Rocky Maivia character was something that the fans didn’t really like so he had to turn heel. Eventually, the WWF Universe started to appreciate what he is able to do in the ring, so the face turn was set. That was one of the best decision’s that was made for his career as he was given the ball and he ran with it so hard that nobody could keep up.


His charisma was something that made him stand out. His catchphrases, the ability to use them when he needed to, in the right way, in the right amount. Then, his improvisation is something that nobody could match. All of that made him super popular among the fans as they chanted everything that he was saying, they already knew what he was going to do before he even did it. And it still, worked, they still popped every single time.

He created this character that was larger than life. His ability in the ring was okay, he was good, but the way this guy talked was the thing that pushed him to that next level. Nobody cut a promo like The Rock. His segments with the mic were probably the highlight of every single Monday Night Raw. That alone tells you just how good was he.


In-ring work was quite decent as nobody can be a main event level star without knowing how to move in the squared circle. But, the charisma and promos that were able to bury talent at times were unmatched.
