Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Considered Competing In The UFC About 10 Years Ago

Former WWE Superstar, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson appeared on UFC’s new podcast, Unfiltered, and revealed that many years ago he had considered switching careers from wrestling and movies to fighting in the UFC.

“There was a time there where I thought, man, I achieved everything I wanted to achieve in WWE, my movie career is floundering a little bit, what do I do? I was relatively still young, I think I was 34. I thought, oh well maybe UFC. Maybe I should do something like that.”

“In my head, I felt like it was at least a two-year process for me to even get in the [cage], let alone the UFC, I wasn’t quite too sure what to do or what kind of people to put around me at the time, so the idea kind of fizzled out and I continued to stay on the path of movie making.”

“Still a big fan and love the sport. But at one time, I did consider it.”
