Dwayne Johnson is still thinking about running for president in 2020

Tuesday November 15th, 2016

We’ve already elected one president with a lengthy WWE history. Why not another?

Back in June, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson fueled speculation about his political aspirations by saying that the thought of being governor or president was “alluring.” The thought is still on his mind. 

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Johnson said he’s not opposed to running for president in 2020.

“I wouldn't rule it out,” Johnson said. “It would be a great opportunity to help people, so it’s possible. This past election shows that anything can happen.”

But if we’ve learned anything from this election it’s that The Rock needs to get inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame before he can run for president.
