The Rock was interviewed by The Hollywood Reporter and talked about his life in professional wrestling and Hollywood. He talked about coming back from three bouts with depression. That’s something he’s never discussed publicly until today.
Johnson said that he was not satisfied with what he was making so he switched agents and publicists in 2011. He also talked about his girlfriend Lauren Hashian and ex-wife and manager Dany Garcia. He also told the story about his family being broke when he was a teenager. He said that he was angry at his father for being absent and forcing them to move 13 times during childhood. He also revealed that when CAA put together his deal to do Fast Five, they were strongly against him going back to the ring for WWE. That was when he decided to leave the agency. Vince McMahon then set him up with Ari Emanuel at WME.
He didn’t rule out a return to WWE but he says that the event and payday would have to equal his 2013 match at WrestleMania 29. He said that he continues to work with WWE but film is his real focus.
