The Rock WWE Debut

Dwayne Johnson made his WWE Debut at Survivor Series in 1996. In a traditional survivor series match, he eliminated Crush and Golddust, winning the match in the process by being the sole survivor. While Dwayne Johnson was on a high, the fans rejected him. His character was of one from a bygone era. With that in mind, Rocky Mavia turned heel and became The Rock. With the advent of the attitude era, The Rock became one of the more colorful characters alongside Stone Cold Steve Austin, Triple H, Mick Foley, The Undertaker, Kane, Chris Jericho, Kurt Angle and many more.
The Rock became a crowd favorite selling out stadiums and having memorable matches along the way. Some of The Rock's greatest matches sold-out arenas which included opponents the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan, and John Cena to name a few. While The Rock has cemented his place as a legend in the ring, he even dominated Hollywood.
