The world of today looks at Dwayne Johnson as a bodybuilding icon too, alongside a WWE legend and action hero in Hollywood. The fans compare The Rock with bodybuilding legend Arnold Schwarzenegger for his roles in Hollywood films. The Great One once revealed he decided to work out because of Schwarzenegger. However, there is a big reason why Schwarzenegger helped Johnson take up bodybuilding as a hobby. Once Dwayne Johnson appeared for an interview with Muscle and Fitness, where he shared his reason for hitting the gym. The Great One said, “I’m a long way from being evicted, but I’ll never forget it. I’ll never forget the feeling. I’ll never forget my mom crying and I’ll never forget the thought I had: ‘Well the only thing I can do is just go build my body,’ because the men who were successful that I knew of—Stallone, Arnold, Bruce Willis—they were men of action.” The Jumanji Actor was of the perception that all the successful men he knew had a superb physique and he wanted that, too. It can be easily said that The Austrian Oak changed Johnson’s mindset at a young age about maintaining a great physique.
