The original Rock Concert from Sacramento will probably always be my all time favourite Rock moment no matter what he does in the future.

I don't like Basketball but I could still appreciate the heat he got when he sang "but i'll be sure to come back when the Lakers beat the Kings in May".

Even babyface Lawler on commentary couldn't hide his laughter.

From The Rock's latest facebook update. Maybe he'll be the first WWE HoFer to get inducted into both the regular and the celebrity wing.

Quote The Rock is now the proud holder of the Guinness World Record for most cereal boxes in one place for his charity efforts in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Marie. You can check out a video of The Rock bringing 30,000 cereal boxes that will assist the Commonwealth in its attempts to recover from Hurricane Marie
 
Such a workaholic. Don't know how he finds the time, especially when he's currently extremely busy promoting Jumanji.
 
He does so much for charity and a lot of it gets overlooked compared to his wrestling and film careers.
 
30,000 is a vast amount. I'm sure he could have even reached six figures with more time.

I’m sure the money he makes cushions the blow of the long hours but yeah his schedule is absolute madness, no idea when he finds time to sleep.

He clearly loves what he does but I think you can only work like that for so long before you crash and burn. I thought he might cut back a little now he has a baby but doesn’t seem he has.

The star will be dedicated in the category of Motion Pictures at 6801 Hollywood Boulevard in front of Hollywood & Highland.

"Everyone loves Dwayne Johnson! We predict that his star will be a very popular one to visit on our famous walk. Not only does Dwayne have a great personality and talent, but he also does a great amount of philanthropic work which is part of the criteria for earning an immortal spot on the Walk of Fame.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce which administers the popular star ceremonies encourages people who are unable to attend and fans around the world to watch the event exclusively on www.walkoffame.com.

With film revenues exceeding $2-billion worldwide, Dwayne Johnson has solidified himself as a global box-office powerhouse in both film and television. Always adding to his busy schedule, Johnson shows no sign of slowing down.

He will soon be seen in Sony's highly anticipated "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" alongside Kevin Hart and Jack Black in theaters December 20th. Johnson recently wrapped New Line Cinema's "Rampage" set to be released April 20, 2018 as well as Legendary's "Skyscraper" set to be released in July 2018. Next year, he will star in Disney's "Jungle Cruise," based on its hit theme park ride. This past year, Johnson starred in Paramount's "Baywatch" and Universal Pictures' "The Fate of the Furious," the 8th installment of the successful 'Fast and Furious' franchise. In 2019, Johnson will star with Jason Statham in a 'Fast and Furious' spin-off movie based on his breakout character Hobbs. Adding to a slew of tent-pole films, Johnson starred in the highest grossing live action comedy, "Central Intelligence" opposite Kevin Hart for New Line Cinema and also lent his voice to the widely successful Disney Animated film "Moana" released in November 2016. Johnson starred in the 2015 summer blockbuster "San Andreas" (New Line Cinema in association with Roadshow Pictures) as well which is set to feature a sequel.

Among Johnson's recent film credits are: Universal's "Furious 7," Paramount's "Hercules," the dramatic thriller "Snitch," the comic book action-adventure "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," the dramatic independent film "Empire State," "Pain & Gain," alongside Mark Wahlberg, "Fast 5" and "Fast and Furious 6," which grossed a combined for $1.4-billion globally. Johnson's previous films include "Race to Witch Mountain," "Get Smart," "The Game Plan," "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island," which grossed over $325-million in 2011, "Be Cool," MGM's sequel to "Get Shorty," the 2004 remake "Walking Tall" and Universal's "The Rundown." Johnson was cast by Stephen Sommers in "The Mummy Returns," which grossed more than $400-million worldwide. His role was so well received by Universal's executives that they immediately planned a film based on his character, "The Scorpion King," which broke box office records in 2002.

Johnson's production company, Seven Bucks Productions, co-founded with by his business partner Dany Garcia, has produced several shows, including HBO's highest rated half-hour comedy "Ballers" starring Johnson and entering its 4th season in 2018. In 2017, Seven Bucks produced the critically-acclaimed "Soundtracks" on CNN, the science fiction action drama "Lifeline" on YouTube Red, as well as the youth prison documentary, "Rock and a Hard Place," for HBO which became the network's #1 watched standalone special. Seven Bucks also teamed with filmmaker Andrew Jenks to produce the podcast "What Really Happened" which recently hit #1 on iTunes' Podcast charts.

Born in San Francisco and raised in Hawaii, Johnson excelled as a high school All-American and subsequently as a star defensive lineman for the University of Miami Hurricanes, helping lead his team to a national championship. Upon graduating from the University of Miami, Johnson followed in the footsteps of his WWE Hall of Fame father, Rocky Johnson, and grandfather, High Chief Peter Maivia, by joining the competitive sports entertainment world of the WWE. Within a seven-year period (1996-2003), his intense passion led to an extraordinarily successful career breaking box office attendance records across the U.S. and setting pay-per-view buy rate records during that period as well.

As "The Rock", a larger than life extension of himself, Johnson became one of the most charismatic and dynamic characters the industry has ever seen. In March 2012, Johnson made a record-breaking return to the WWE where he defeated John Cena to become WWE Champion in the main event of at Wrestle Mania XXVIII in Miami.

Known as "The People's Champion" in WWE, Johnson takes tremendous pride in the relationship he has with his audience, feeding off their passion and connectivity. Johnson regularly engages his over 175 million followers across social media as well as his YouTube Channel and was ranked #1 on Hollywood Reporter's "Top Actors" chart which ranks analytics for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Google Plus.

Johnson penned an autobiography, The Rock Says, which reached #1 on the New York TimesBestseller List shortly after its publication in January 2000.

Johnson also created The Rock Foundation in 2006, with a mission to educate, empower and motivate children worldwide through health and physical fitness. A dedicated philanthropist, Johnson is the current National spokesperson for the Entertainment Industry Foundation's Diabetes Aware Campaign. He is also a committed Celebrity Cabinet Member for The American Red Cross, and serves as a National Celebrity Wish Ambassador for The Make-A-Wish Foundation. In 2008, United States Congress and the United States Joint Leadership Commission recognized Johnson with the prestigious Horizon Award, the U.S. Congressional Award given to an individual in the private sector who has demonstrated outstanding leadership and provided opportunities for youth nationwide.

Well deserved for someone who's dominated the top of multiple industries.

I'm surprised it's taken so long, but cracking a billion dollars revenue from his films probably made the committee say yes.

Over here he's on Graham Norton tomorrow night promoting his new movie, so that will be good.
