In Week 45 of The Rock Report we take a look at the names The Rock reckons people have given him over the years
Over the years, Rock Dwayne The Johnson has given himself one hell of a lot of nicknames. I noticed recently that he seems to be addicted to telling people that “[X] was my nickname at college…” He does it all the bloody time.
I used to believe him, that these nicknames were authentic. Those days are long gone. I think he’s doing it purely for the LOLs!
Here is a list of all the times The Rock has claimed that people used to give him some wacky nickname like ‘Mocha fap’ or ‘Big yummy muscles’. This is just the results of a Twitter search; God knows how many more claims he’s making in his private life.
Free and epic
Smart and fun
Big yummy muscles

The Rock’s penchant for nicknames did not end after he left college, for posterity here are some of the other monikers he goes by.

There we go. Make of that what you will.
Stay hungry, stay humble.
