The former pro wrestler, who is now widely regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, attained success during the Attitude Era in the 90s and afterward left WWE to pursue an acting career.
In a similar fashion to his wrestling career, Dwayne Johnson has gained immense success as an actor, with his films grossing over $10.5 billion worldwide, making him one of the world's highest-grossing and highest-paid actors.
Now at 50, the Great One looks as energetic and strong as he was in his twenties, and Joe Rogan is convinced he is using performance-enhancing drugs to improve his physique. In a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, where he was discussing with fitness-savvy Derek of "More Plates, More Dates" how Brian "Liver King" Johnson had been using steroids to keep himself in shape, the UFC color commentator stated that The Rock had an obligation to his fans, stating:
The Rock should come clean right now. He should make a video in response to the 'Liver King' video. 'I need to talk to you because The Rock’s been lying.' There’s not a f*cking chance in hell he’s clean. Not a chance in hell. As big as The Rock is, at 50? He’s so massive, and he’s so different than he was when he was 30.
There’s a responsibility you have to people who are listening to you. If you don’t want to talk about it, that’s one thing. But if you do talk about it, there’s a responsibility you have to people listening to you and I think you have to be honest about it, which is why I’m honest about it. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with taking hormone replacement.
Although Johnson has not responded to these allegations, Joe Rogan's claims are not far-fetched. While promoting his film, Race to Witch Mountain in an MTV interview in 2009, he admitted to using steroids in his teenage years, saying:
I tried it… Me and my buddies tried it back in the day when I was 18 or 19. Didn’t know what we were doing.
