Admit it, you like professional wrestling. You don’t have to be embarrassed, we’re all friends here. Nobody will judge you. Even if you don’t like professional wrestling, you at least know who Hulk Hogan is. You’ve probably heard of Wrestlemania. Chances are, you may even know who The Rock is. His real name is Dwayne Johnson, and for the past decade he’s been making his mark in Hollywood, turning out such movies as The Scorpion King, The Tooth Fairy, The Other Guys, and coming to a theater near you, the 18th entry in the Fast and Furious franchise. But before Dwayne Johnson was a movie star, he was The Rock- the most electrifying man in sports entertainment, the people’s champion, the “jabroni beating, lalalalow pie eating, can turn that frown upside down, can be gone for 7 years and still come back to lay the smack down,” (I made that last one up myself) sumbitch. He was The Rock, and now he’s back. Wrestlemania will be celebrating it’s 27th anniversary on April 3, 2011. Wrestlemania has always been the “Super Bowl of professional wrestling. Last night, on WWE’s flagship show, The Rock made his first appearance in the ring in over 7 years to announce that he would be the guest host of the annual event.
