Mike Killam

In a Q&A session on Twitter, former WWE Champion Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson claimed that director Michael Bay offered him the lead role in his upcoming "Transformers" reboot, but he had to turn it down because of his commitments to "Hercules". 

The "Transformers" lead role instead went to The Rock's "Pain & Gain" co-star Mark Wahlberg.
