Part-time WWE Superstar and Hollywood A-Lister Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson appeared as a guest, along with CM Punk, on the second ever episode of UFC’s brand new “UFC Unfiltered” podcast. Below are some of the highlights of what The Rock said about nearly making a move to the UFC about ten years ago.
On contemplating a move towards the UFC around 2004:
“There was a time there where I thought, man, I achieved everything I wanted to achieve in WWE, my movie career is floundering a little bit, what do I do?” Johnson said. “I was relatively still young, I think I was 34. I thought, oh well maybe UFC. Maybe I should do something like that.”
On how far he got into things:
“In my head, I felt like it was at least a two-year process for me to even get in the [cage], let alone the UFC,” Johnson said. “I wasn’t quite too sure what to do or what kind of people to put around me at the time, so the idea kind of fizzled out and I continued to stay on the path of movie making.”
“Still a big fan and love the sport,” Johnson said. “But at one time, I did consider it.”
