WWE legend Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson ready to run for President of USA 'if that's what the people wanted'

WWE legend The Rock has revealed he'd happily run for President – but only if the American public wants him to.

Businessman and former reality TV star Donald Trump successfully ran for office in 2016 but was voted out last November.


Trump's successful campaign prompted calls for The Rock, real name Dwayne Johnson, to run for office in 2020.

But unlike musician Kanye West, the wrestler turned movie star didn't bid to become the leader of the free world -although he hasn't closed the door on doing so in the future.

He told USA Today: "I would consider a presidential run in the future if that's what the people wanted. Truly I mean that, and I'm not flippant in any way with my answer.

"That would be up to the people…So I would wait, and I would listen. I would have my finger on the pulse, my ear to the ground."

Johnson also revealed he'd be open to a presidential bid in an exclusive interview with The Sun.

He said: “Never in my wildest dreams would I have ever dreamed that I could have had the career that I’ve been lucky enough to have.

“Never did I ever think I’d be in this position where people are bringing to life people in my life and my loved ones.”

Johnson is no stranger to sharing his thoughts on political matters, publicly endorsing Joe Biden's successful bid for the presidency.

Prior to endorsing Biden, the 48-year-old took aim at Trump for failing to address racial injustice in the United States following the death of George Floyd last summer.

In a heartfelt video, Johnson said: "Where are you? Where is our leader? Where is our leader at this time?

"At this time when our country is down on its knees begging, pleading, hurt, angry, frustrated, in pain, with its arms out…just wanting to be heard. Begging and pleading for change. Where are you?

"Where is our compassionate leader who is going to step up to our country, down on its knees, extend a hand and say, 'stand up with me. I got you. I hear you. I'm listening to you.

"'You have my word that I will do everything in my power, to my dying breath, to create the change that is needed. To normalise equality because Black Lives Matter.'

"Where are you? It's that same compassionate leader who has to come back and re-address that country to give important context and perspective on the comments made.

"Of course all lives matter. Every single one, because we believe in inclusivity, acceptance, human rights, and equality for all.

"Of course all lives matter. But in this moment, this defining, pivotal, and explosive moment, we must say the words Black Lives Matter. Where are you?"

“Never in my wildest dreams would I have ever dreamed that I could have had the career that I’ve been lucky enough to have.

“Never did I ever think I’d be in this position where people are bringing to life people in my life and my loved ones.”
