Young Rock reveals moment The Rock was born

As famous as Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is today, there was a time when he wasn't sure he'd cut it in the WWE.

The Rock was on the fringe of being booted off the wrestling promotion if it wasn't for some timely advice from Hulk Hogan, who, at the time, had switched over to World Championship Wrestling.

Season 3 Episode 2, Rocky Sucks, in particular, sheds light on The Rock's heel turn, which would make a lasting impact on his career. 

After Hulk Hogan told Johnson to be more of himself, he used the next opportunity given to him on the mic and ran with it. 

What happened next was one of the most epic moments in Monday Night Raw history as Johnson officially became The Rock.

The Rock used the hype from this single event to propel his career and the rest, as they say, is history.
