After playing football for four years at the University of Miami, The Rock was bypassed by the NFL. He was scooped by the Calgary Stampeders, but a short time later, he was cut from the team.
At 23, Dwayne returned home to his parent’s small apartment, feeling defeated, and battling depression.
In a post on his IG, The Rock wrote:

Look forward to sharing more life lessons with you guys this SUNDAY at 8pm on #MasterClass #OwnNetwork #WeveAllBeenDown #AndDeserveToGetBackUp ??
