WWE legend Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was backed to become president of the United States by fellow Hall of Famer Rikishi.
The 50-year-old is recently rumored to be returning to the field for an epic title match against Roman Reigns.
Aside from his exploits in the ring, Hollywood’s most lucrative actor continues to enjoy huge success on the big screen.
However, last year he revealed that he would happily run for president, but only if the American public so wishes.
Now his real-life cousin Rikishi, real name Solofa Fatu, has revealed that he would vote for The Rock to lead the nation.
The 56-year-old told Bally Sports’s Brandon Robinson: “I’m voting for him!
“I don’t know whether to be the vice president … [laughs] I’ll vote for him though because I’m not the political cat; I’m just the cat who supports people ”.
Rikishi also recalled how he believed The Rock was destined for a career in the NFL rather than following in the family’s footsteps and entering the world of wrestling, let alone a record run in Hollywood.
He said, “Well, the Rock was younger and we weren’t very close to each other, you know? I’m from the west coast, he was out there on the east coast.
“We all knew him and his dad and they flew all over the place, but when we finally met, it was fine!
