You probably don’t need us to tell you who Dwayne Johnson is, right? But we’re going to do it anyway. Commonly known as “The Rock,” this man is a living legend.

Yes, if you haven’t already watched Young Rock on NBC then you’re seriously missing out. This new show only made its debut on our screens in February 2021, but that hasn’t stopped it from getting everyone talking. After all, could this be the show that finally pushed Dwayne Johnson to become the next President of the United States?

Young Rock Is All About the Former Wrestler’s Life…

First and foremost, it’s important to understand what Young Rock is all about. Created by Nahnatchka Khan and Jeff Chiang, this show follows the life and times of Dwayne Johnson, his childhood, and his ascent into the world of fame and fortune. Not only does it give young actors like Adrian Groulx, Bradley Constant, and Uli Latukefu the chance to step into the shoes of the legendary celebrity, but The Rock also stars in the show himself.

We bet it’s not too hard for Dwayne Johnson to play himself in a television show considering he’s turned himself into a tooth fairy, a scorpion king, and a Polynesian demi-god in the past. But it’s safe to say that he still has to act a little bit, considering he’s not only an actor and former wrestler in this show. He’s also running for president.

….And How He’s Running To Become President of the United States

While most of Young Rock follows the younger version of Dwayne Johnson’s life, these past stories focus around a central arc that sees him in the next presidential campaign. This certainly makes for an entertaining show, but it seems as though this might not be entirely fictional. After all, Dwayne has considered a presidential run in the past.

In a 2017 interview with GQ, Johnson noted that running for president was a “real possibility.” And then a year later, he spoke to Vanity Fair about the fact that he had seriously considered his potential place within the 2020 candidacy. However, he eventually decided against it. But with this new show in our lives, could he be considering it once again? He seems pretty set on becoming president in the show, that’s for sure.

The Rock Has Given His Fans the Power To Decide Whether He Runs for President

In recent years, talk around the idea of Dwayne Johnson as President of the United States has heated up. And it seems as though there are many people out there who think he’d be great in the Oval Office. In The Rock’s eyes, he’s going to leave that decision to his fans. He spoke to USA Today about this matter – and the prospect seems pretty promising if you ask us.

He noted that: “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.” Well, this is certainly an interesting development. Would you vote for him?
