The Rock Speaks on WWE/Acting, Meet Stacy Keibler

Nick Paglino

The Heyman Hustle is advertising an NFL "SuperDraft" event in Las Vegas which will be hosted by former WWE Diva Stacy Keibler from August 27th to the 30th.

The UK Sun has posted a recent interview of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and he has the following to say concerning the infulence WWE had on his acting career: "Ten years ago I knew that I wanted to be a good actor as I wound down my wrestling career. I hoped to find good material that would work and be entertaining. There is a great amount of acting in wrestling and wrestling is a great form of entertainment. For me that training ground was really invaluable because I did not go to school for acting. I went to school for football and studied criminology. I knew it was going to take time and 10 years went by pretty quickly. When celebrities and sports stars, or people that are successful in another area, cross over into movies, they’re always encouraged to bring that same tenacity and that same relentless drive that you had to make it. You have to apply that to acting."
