Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and his role as Black Adam in the new movie are the main topic. In an interview with Jake's Takes, The Rock talked about his role and what significance it had. He emphasized that his wrestling experience was important in preparing for the role.
“Yes, number one. Number two, me cutting my teeth and making my bones in pro wrestling, even before WWE, when I started down in Memphis wrestling for Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler, Jerry Jarrett, and Jeff Jarrett and those guys.
Wrestling in those little flea markets that I used to wrestle at, then getting to WWE, my experience in the world of pro wrestling helped me craft an even better Black Adam. Ultimately, what the world of wrestling always did for me, number one, always listen to the audience.
Let them inform you. They will always inform you on where you need to go."- he said, as quoted by pwmania.com.
The Rock and WWE
The Rock spent many years in WWE and showed his qualities. He is still remembered as one of the most important people on the wrestling scene.
He emphasized how important the audience is, and how he used to prepare for matches. Also, do your best to think 10, 12, 20 steps ahead. In the world of wrestling, oftentimes, if I knew what our WrestleMania main event would be, me and say ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin.
We’d work backward from there. It’s the same thing. The ultimate goal was not only to deliver Black Adam, but deliver the JSA [Justice Society of America], five new superhero characters in one movie, but also stretch the universe out, and think about what it would look like if Black Adam were to face any of these other characters”. A great role. The Rock continues where he left off.
