They say politics is a lot like pro wrestling. Both feature a lot of finger-waving, tough talk and in some cases, empty promises. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is accomplished at one profession, and he continues to consider making a run at the other.
“I would consider a presidential run in the future, if that’s what the people wanted,” Johnson said. “Truly I mean that, and I’m not flippant in any way with my answer. That would be up to the people… So I would wait, and I would listen.”
Johnson has plenty of experience in pro wrestling and acting (which is basically the same thing), but none in politics. Still, he insisted he keeps up on the issues and would be a man of the people.
“I would have my finger on the pulse, my ear to the ground,” he said.
