The Rock’s Childhood Struggle with Being Mistaken for a Girl

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s name is known far and wide for being one of the biggest and most influential stars in the pro wrestling business. He is also a Hollywood megastar and continues to make hit after hit. That being said, it appears he used to be mistaken for a girl during his childhood.

The Rock certainly had a pretty bad start in WWE as almost everyone hated his Rocky Maivia character. The infamous ‘Die, Rocky, Die’ chants are something no one will ever forget, especially The Rock.

The Rock’s father Rocky Johnson worked with Tony Atlas during the 80s and his father also brought him along for his matches. While speaking to Bill Apter, pro wrestling legend Tony Atlas revealed that The Rock used to be mistaken for a girl when he was a kid.

“Rocky would be walking somewhere with Dwayne and people would say, ‘How old is your daughter?’ Because Rock was such a nice-looking young kid that people used to think he was a girl. Rocky would be like, ‘That’s my son, that’s my son, that’s my son.’”



The Rock also recently launched huge campaign to help those affected by the Maui wildifires. We’ll have to wait and see what the future holds for The Great One, as fans want to see him back on WWE television.
