Dwayne The Rock Johnson vs The Great Khali | Fights and Training

  • Published: 02 April 2018
  • Dwayne Douglas Johnson (born May 2, 1972), also known by his ring name The Rock, is an American actor, producer, and semi-retired professional wrestler. It's been announced that Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is set to recieve a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Literally (and figuratively) a Hollywood heavyweight, DJ's ascension from questionable wrestler to global megastar is one adored all over the world, so it seems only fair he's cementing himself in Hollywood history. "A true true honor. What a full circle journey," he said on Twitter. "So grateful and so many people to thank. See everyone there! Tequila on me".

    And, if you've ever watched The Rock work out, you'll know that he works hard. Sometimes too hard. "He loves to train so you struggle to keep him out of the gym," says his trainer, Dave Rienzi, who started working with 41-year-old Dwayne Johnson before Wrestlemania in 2011, and has designed his routines ever since. "When I started working with Johnson, he was spending too much time in the gym, which was a little counter productive, so I had to try to limit him to a really intense 45-60 minutes," says Rienzi. Intense, as anyone taking on this programme will see, is something of an understatement.
