Sadly #TheRocktober will soon come to an end—but don't worry, there's still a bit more time to celebrate Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
Why does he deserve our attention?
Aside from stocking his social media accounts with gym videos that seriously pump you up, Johnson is a triple threat with a resume that boasts professional wrestling, Baller acting skills (see what I did there?), and being really good at the Internet. (Remember when he set the Guinness World Record for most selfies taken in 3 minutes?)
Piper Kerman, author of Orange Is the New Black, put it best when she wrote about his effect on her fellow inmates during her year in a women's prison: "I am confident that some day in the future The Rock, who was once a professional wrestler, will run for president of the United States, and I think that he will win. I have seen with my own eyes the power of The Rock. The Rock is a uniter, not a divider ... The Rock has an effect on women that transcends divisions of race, age, cultural background, even social class."
Put simply, The Rock is just the best. In these times, when the bad news seems to be constant—the Kardashians will never quit, and even bacon (bacon!) is no longer safe—we need The Rock.
And with that, here are 12 reasons to <3 him.
This is how he warms up for a workout
This is how he finishes a workout
His kettlebells look like this...
This is how he does Disney World
This is how he reacts when young fans interrupt his time with his mom
This is what he thinks about "fierce chicks"
These are his goals
This is how he treats his co-workers
This is his breakfast
And finally, I'm not sure what this is exactly but it is a "religious experience" by itself
I mean if that doesn't motivate you to kick ass, what will?
Next time you're feeling conflicted, stressed, or down, just remember: The Rock is rooting for you. Get off the couch. Get to the gym, and just imagine The Rock's voice dropping F-bombs (I'm referring to "Focus!") in your ear while you sweat.
Get after it!
