It was in 1996 when The Rock wrestled his first ever match, particularly at Survivor Series. Along with Stone Cold Steve Austin, Dwayne Johnson went on to define the Attitude Era of WWE and became one of the biggest superstars in the world of professional wrestling. Currently, The Rock is focusing on his flourishing Hollywood career as he's one of the highest-paid actors! But, that doesn't mean there's love lost for WWE. On various occasions, the Brahma Bull returns to his first love, WWE, for epic segments.

However, in a recent appearance for Live with Kelly and Ryan, Dwayne revealed that he has "quietly retired" from professional wrestling. When asked if he misses wrestling, the Hobbs & Shaw star confessed, "Well, I quietly retired from wrestling because I was lucky enough to have just a really wonderful career and accomplished what I wanted to accomplish. But there’s nothing like a live crowd, a live audience, a live microphone." Furthermore, Johnson credited WWE for where he stands with his Hollywood career and spoke about the Survivor Series 1996 match, which took place at Madison Square Garden, and how 20,000 in attendance chanted "Rocky! Rocky!"
