This is the kind of thing reserved for some of the biggest names in entertainment and The Rock certainly fits the bill at this point.
The Hollywood Walk Of Fame is a place where the biggest and more influential celebrities on the planet get a star with their name on it on Hollywood Blvd and it looks like The Rock is next in line to receive this honor.
The Rock will get his star next week and will be the 2,624th person to receive this distinction. In case you were wondering how one gets a star like this, according to the LA Times, “honorees have to be nominated, and anyone can submit a nomination. But if a star is approved by the chamber’s selection committee, whoever did the nominating has to pony up $30,000.”
The Rock will be sharing this honor with a lot of other famous people but he won’t be the first from the pro wrestling world as Vince McMahon also shares this accomplishment with The Great One. The fine folks at the Hollywood Walk Of Fame put out a statement concerning the event and they sound very sure they’re making a good choice.
“Everyone loves Dwayne Johnson! We predict that his star will be a very popular one to visit on our famous walk. Not only does Dwayne have a great personality and talent, but he also does a great amount of philanthropic work which is part of the criteria for earning an immortal spot on the Walk of Fame. We envision scores of photos being taken at his star by his fans,” stated Ana Martinez, Producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies.
If you can’t make the ceremony, then that’s okay because you can stream it for free on walkoffame.com. The ceremony starts on Wednesday, December 13, 2017 at 11:30 a.m. PST.
