• “We could be talking about President Johnson one day” – WWE Hall Of Famer Compares The Rock To Michael Jordan
While talking to Bally Sports, WWE Hall Of Famer Jeff Jarrett talked about The Rock and how The Great One could possibly run for President of the United States in 2028 or 2032.
Double J compared The Rock to Michael Jordan and said the following:
“How can you deny Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson? The biggest box office attraction. So Michael Jordan makes more money today off his shoes than he did when he retired. So basketball is a huge platform and his legendary stories and everything that goes with it.
But he transcended – Jordan transcended his game and The Rock certainly transcended. I mean, who knows? We could be talking about President Johnson one day as opposed to ‘The Rock’.”
The Rock even teased running for President (in a comedic way) during the first season of his TV Show ‘Young Rock’, that ran on NBC.
