The Rock and John Cena have been the standard bearers of their eras in the WWE, becoming the face of the company during their respective eras.
The People’s Champion defined the WWE in its greatest period of professional wrestling which famously is known today as ‘The Attitude Era’ helping the WWE triumph over its rival promotion, WCW during the Monday Night Wars.
After a Hall of Fame-worthy career etched by The Brahma Bull, The Rock set out to conquer the world of Hollywood in 2002 debuting in the movie ‘The Mummy Returns’ as the Scorpion King. Although he faced a sloppy start in the bright lights of the movie world much like how his WWE career began, The Most Electrifying Man in all of Entertainment worked towards his newfound passion and soon reigned as one of the mainstays in the entertainment industry.

After his successful run for well over 15 years, Cena also set out to establish his place in Hollywood appearing in some of the most successful series and films like Peacemaker, Fast and Furious, and Bumblebee.
