WWE's The Undertaker Would Absolutely Vote For Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson To Be President
Could WWE's People's Champ become President of the United States? Wrestling legend The Undertaker makes the case for Dwayne Johnson running for office.
Could Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson become president of the United States of America one day? Honestly, at this point, anything seems possible. Currently, the WWE wrestler-turned-action movie icon stars on NBC's , which is about his childhood, though through the framing device of Johnson being interviewed while actually running for president. That's fictional for now. However, WWE legend The Undertaker sounds like he wishes it were really happening.
In an interview with , The Undertaker--who officially retired from the squared circle in late 2020--supported the idea of Johnson seeking the office of president. "That man works his tail off and he dives in wholeheartedly in everything that he does and if he gets his mindset that he wants to make a run at politics, ya know what? I think he'll do it," The Undertaker said.
What's more, the former leader of the Ministry of Darkness and the self-proclaimed American Badass thinks Johnson would be a good fit for the job. "He's so charming, he's so witty, I think he can be the uniter that people are looking for," The Undertaker continued, adding, "I don't know man, there's so many possibilities and if that's what he chooses to do, I'll support wholeheartedly in his efforts to do so." That's a nice thing for him to say, considering in the past The Rock--in the name of pro wrestling--told the Undertaker he had Mickey Mouse tattoos and a 33-pound head.
Would The Rock run, though? The actor has been asked the question many times, while he's never committed one way or the other, he says he would "consider a presidential run in the future if that's what the people wanted." As always, The Rock is the People's Champion. Now he just needs to enlist vice presidential candidate Mick Foley, so the Rock 'n Sock Connection can stand tall one more time.
Alternatively, he can just keep making movies and documenting his over-the-top workout schedule and cheat meals on Instagram.
