  • Rocky Johnson was a wrestling legend

WWE superstar Rocky Johnson and father of actor-wrestler Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, died.

The Cauliflower Alley Club - a pro-wrestling non-profit - shared the sad news first, via Twitter, writing, "Horrible news to pass along".

The statement detailed Rocky's career, which began in the mid-1960s, leading him to the WWE in 1983 before his 1991 retirement. Post-retirement, Johnson would go on to have a hand in training his son, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

Johnson was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his son in 2008.

As of the time of writing, no cause of death has been revealed, and Rocky's family - including Dwayne - have not yet commented publicly on the news.

He wrote: "I am so sorry to hear of the passing of the great Rocky Johnson". In June 2018, Dwayne paid tribute to his father on Instagram and thanking him for teaching him how to be a father to his own three daughters. While he got started with singles matches against wrestlers like Greg Valentine, he broke through when he teamed up with Tony Atlas to form the tag team "The Soul Patrol".

Born Wade Douglas Bowles, Johnson was originally from Amherst.

In 1970, he married his second wife Ava Matia, a member of a famous Samoan wrestling family.

Johnson was a big star in his day. In March 2018, The Rock explained that he'd bought his father a bigger vehicle, a Cadillac, following a hip surgery.

Rest in peace Rocky Johnson.

"He'd kick my a** from one side of the gym to the other for years". I hated it then as a little boy, but grateful for it today as a man'.
