Dwayne Johnson is a business, entertainment and fitness icon who continues to expand his success with his consumer-first mentality rooted in authenticity and storytelling. After a phenomenal WWE career Johnson successfully transitioned to film and TV, a move that saw his name reach global recognition and led to co-founding Seven Bucks Productions. As social media’s most followed American man in the world, he is a cultural leader with expertise not just in entertainment but in first class brands; including Project Rock which recently announced its global footwear partnership with UFC, Teremana Tequila which just celebrated being the fastest growing Tequila in the history of all spirits, and ZOA Energy which is officially the fastest growing new energy drink brand in the market. Johnson was most recently seen starring in the Netflix record breaking film, Red Notice, the streamers most watched film to date. He’ll next voice the lead role of Krypto in the animated feature film DC League of Super Pets in July and in October will be seen starring in the highly anticipated DC anti-hero film Black Adam with Warner Bros which he will also produce on behalf of his Seven Bucks Productions.
Dwayne Johnson explains: “Our differences are our greatest strengths, and recognizing representation in entertainment and amplifying the voices and contributions of our AAPI community is of the highest importance. I could not be more proud of my Black and Samoan heritage, and one of my greatest passions in life is enriching my daughters’ lives with our people’s history so they also understand the importance of our great ancestry and its meaning. Both cultures represent love, respect and power that ignites the universal feeling of family, our mana, and nodding to those who paved the road before us so that the ‘rough places are made plain’ and we can pursue our dreams today. Let us embrace, celebrate and illuminate the Asian American and Pacific Islanders, and all people of color, who contribute to making this country great today and every day.
