Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson could be “the uniter that people are looking for” if he ran for president, according to his old WWE pal The Undertaker.

Johnson’s work in pro wrestling saw him become one of the WWE’s most beloved superstars, and he twice became the highest-paid Hollywood actor because of his roles in films like Baywatch, the Fast and the Furious franchise, and Jumanji.

But the 48-year-old could be just as successful in a third career should he move into American politics, Mark Calaway, also known as The Undertaker, told TMZ Sports this week.

“That man works his tail off and he dives in wholeheartedly in everything that he does and if he gets his mindset that he wants to make a run at politics, ya know what? I think he’ll do it,” The Undertaker said.

When asked if he could heal a divided country considering the hostile political climate in modern America, he added: “I think so. He’s so charming, he’s so witty, I think he can be the uniter that people are looking for.

“I know that he has the charisma. Maybe all it would take would be one eyebrow, and he’d look at the left, raise the eyebrow. Look at the right, raise an eyebrow and hit ’em with ‘the People’s Elbow.'”

The Rock said in an interview with USA Today earlier this month that he’d “consider a presidential run in the future if that’s what the people wanted.”

The Rock attended the Democratic National Convention, and the Republican National Convention, in 2000.

He voted for Barack Obama in the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, did not vote in 2016, and as of 2017 is an independent voter.

Though he had previously registered as a Republican, in 2020 he endorsed Joe Biden for the 2020 election.
