So what did the former WWE champ, 44, think when he first heard about his latest title?
“I said, ‘That’s awesome.’ And then what went through my mind was just how cool and exciting it is,” Johnson tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “And then I thought, ‘Wow, we’ve pretty much reached the pinnacle.’ I’m not quite too sure where we go from here. I’ve done it all, this is it.”
The most entertaining man in show business strikes again!
The Rock makes a great point in that quote at the end of the story. Where does he go from here? He's already the world's highest-paid actor. He's dominated the TV screen via his days in the WWE and the movie screen via the Fast and Furious franchise and other standout films like The Tooth Fairy and whatever buddy cop movie he's in with Kevin Hart this year (Okay, maybe he can work on his movie resume a little bit).
Some possible options moving forward for The Rock:
-One of those Uber pranks where he drives the Uber and the passenger has no idea that it's a famous person.
-Make an attempt to join an NFL team. The Rock was a part of that unbelievable Miami football team with Ray Lewis and Devin Hester and shit, why not make a comeback tour? He's probably big enough for the job
-Host a daytime talk show. Maybe take over the other half of Live with Kelly? Maybe a new one called "Rock Talk"? He has the charisma, and he's experienced on live TV from his WWE years.
-Leave the public spotlight altogether. Pull a Costanza and leave the people wanting more. This might be his best course of action.
However, I bet if I presented these ideas to him, he'd tell me it doesn't matter what I think:
