Johnson participates in the Mannequin Challenge.

WWE Veteran and Hollywood Superstar Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson recently participated in the Mannequin Challenge. The Mannequin Challenge has been all the rage on social media ever since its inception. 

The Mannequin Challenge requires you to stand still in some motion while a camera records it, with music (Rae Sremmurd's "Black Beatles") in the background. The challenge needs more than two people for its execution, so the more, the merrier. The birthplace of the Mannequin Challenge is said to be the Edward H. White High School in Jacksonville, Florida. 

Johnson isn't the only figure from WWE, who attempted this challenge. Performers and staff at WWE's Performance Centre also participated in this challenge. Similarly, several personalities belonging to the world of sports, politics, and TV like; Ellen DeGeneres, Michelle Obama, LeBron James, James Corden, and Adele to name a few — have participated in this challenge. 

Johnson — who was recently given the title of "The Sexiest Man Alive" by People magazine, using clever wordplay, dubbed the video as, "The Sexiest Man-nequin Challenge". 

This past Survivor Series marked the 20th Anniversary of Johnson's debut in the WWE, thus sparking rumours among fans, concerning his appearance at the event, this past Sunday. However, Johnson was not present at the PPV. 

Although he did not show up at Survivor Series, the Rock is probably booked to be at WrestleMania 33 in some form or fashion. 

Currently, Johnson is promoting his first Disney animated film Moana. Johnson is also working on the sequel to Jumanji, and the live-action adaptation of the popular video game, Rampage.

He’s also working on a wrestling-themed TV show, and will soon be embarking on the promotional work for Baywatch, and Fast 8, which are both slated for April and May release.
