WWE.Com Biography:
He is the most electrifying man in sports and entertainment.
He is quickly becoming one of the most recognized faces on the planet
 and one of the hottest celebrities in all walks of life. 
Call him whatever you want, but to the millions -- and millions - 
of fans around the world, there is no substitute for The Rock. 
A third generation WWE Superstar, The Rock at first did not plan to 
follow in the family tradition of sports entertainment stardom, but instead 
used his athletics heredity on the gridiron where he starred for the University 
of Miami. After a very brief professional football career, The Rock decided 
to give WWE a shot -- a choice that would prove to begin a new era in 
the entertainment world. In only a few years, The Rock was a multi-time 
WWE Champion and one of the most celebrated superstars to ever set 
foot in the ring. 
But it was more than his ability to layeth the smacketh down in the ring 
hat made The Rock a Superstar. His quick wit, charisma, and ability 
to talk smack earned such raves that "The People's Champion" was 
asked to speak to the people over and over again. Among his many 
famous public appearances were a stint hosting "Saturday Night Live" 
in 2000 and a speech at the 2002 Republican National Convention. 
By 2001, The Rock became a multi-media superstar, having starred 
in the feature film, "The Mummy Returns," and its highly successful 
prequel, "The Scorpion King." His autobiography, "The Rock Says..."
 was a New York Times No. 1 bestseller. 
The Rock may have earned his biggest box office break to date with 
a starring role in "Walking Tall," an action drama based on a true story 
that is expected to be even more successful than his previous hit, "The 
Rundown." While many consider The Rock to be Hollywood's next 
great superstar, he still believes that World Wrestling Entertainment is 
his home and is ready to return to the ring when duty calls. When Mick 
Foley suffered injury and humiliation at the hands of Evolution, Rocky 
returned to RAW to reform the Rock 'n' Sock Connection and the two 
competed as a team at WrestleMania XX. While Evolution walked out 
as the winner, The Rock proved that he has not lost his touch in the ring 
and at the microphone and is as beloved as a WWE Superstar now more 
than ever!

4. Game Character Information
-----------------------------------------------------

-The Rock is in the game as a Legend. He needs to be unlocked in order 
to be used. He is purchased for $20,000 in the ShopZone.

Character Stats:
Strength: 8
Submission: 9
Durability: 9
Technique: 9.5
Speed: 7
Charisma: 10
Overall: 94

As you can see, Rock is clearly one of the best superstars in the game. 
It's easy with Rock to work your opponent into yellow within the first 
couple minutes of the match. 
Most of his moves focus on the head/body, which makes it easy to put 
someone away with either his two finishers, 
the People's Elbow and the Rock Bottom, or even two of his trademark 
moves, his DDT or his Sharpshooter.
