Kurzbeschreibung

7. November 2000

The Rock is layin' the smack down! With unapologetic honesty, and inimitable style, The Rock tells his story from his boyhood days traveling around the world with his father (professional wrestler Rocky Johnson) to his years as a football player at the University of Miami and his less than glamorous professional days in Canada, to his meteoric rise through the ranks of the Federation. The Rock also takes fans on a guided tour of big-time wrestling, and provides a breathtaking, minute-by-minute account of WrestleMania, the Super Bowl of pro wrestling, including an intimate backstage look at rehearsals with his opponent, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and discusses in heartfelt detail the loss of his friend and coworker, Owen Hart.

Amazon.de

Hot on the bleeding heels of Mankind's Have a Nice Day! comes another memoir by a bad-guy character World Wrestling Federation fans love to hate, edited by the same prose coach, the clever Jeremie Ruby-Strauss (and coauthored by Joe Layden). Dwayne Johnson, a.k.a. the Rock--who calls himself "the People's Champion," affects an arched eyebrow to convey entertaining menace, and coins catch phrases like a standup comic--gives you plenty of colorful, jumbled action photos and the growling accounts of staged mayhem that made Mankind's book a bestseller. But his story is more interesting than that of Mankind, his occasional ring rival. The noisy action chapters alternate with passages of more reflective conventional autobiography: the Rock is a third-generation pro wrestler, and his book amounts to a history of the sport. His grandpa, High Chief Peter Maivia, was a Samoan important enough to be buried in Diamond Head's crater, and his dad, Rocky Johnson, was George Foreman's sparring partner and the first African American World Wrestling Federation Intercontinental champ. The Rock is candid about the battles his family faced outside the ring: the marriage-testing road lifestyle, his dad's most important win (over the bottle), and the author's own dangerous temper. There's something touching about the Rock's unpromising debut in his uncle Tonga's old trunks, in his reverence for his elders--and something scary about his reaction when he thinks people lack such respect.

What, you say? You'd rather hear about the Rock's "schmozz" (free-for-all) with Mankind, or Faarooq and the interracial Nation of Domination, or that Budweiser-popping piece of trailer trash Stone Cold Steve Austin, or the Undertaker, whose skin is "the color of bad meat"? You want to hear how he started out sleeping on a pungent mattress retrieved from a garbage dump and wound up wearing Versace shirts and chatting up Gennifer Flowers on TV at WrestleMania XIV? You crave the secrets of the Frankenstein, the Gorilla Position, Jake the Snake, and Mankind's Mandible Claw (a dirty sock he shoves down opponents' throats)? That's all here, too. Just hop in the ring--the Rock will show you around. --Tim Appelo -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Synopsis

In this action-packed, revealing memoir, WWF superstar The Rock recounts his life in and out of the ring. From his boyhood days travelling around the world with his father (professional wrestler Rocky Johnson) to his years as a football player at the University of Miami to his meteoric rise through the ranks of the Federation. After an injury-plagued football career at Miami and a subsequent unsuccessful foray into Canada where he lived in squalor, he decided pro football was not for him and he set his sights on following the path of his father and grandfather, High Chief Peter Maivia, and become the world's first third-generation professional wrestler. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Simply electrifing 5. September 2001
Format:Taschenbuch
Rezension zu The Rocks Biografie??!! Dwayne ist und wird für immer der Beste bleiben. Das Buch ist super gut aufgebaut und Dwayne gibt einem die Möglichkeit hinter die Kulissen der WWF und hinter die Kulissen seines Lebens zu blicken. Ich habe vor Dwayne Johnson und der gesamten WWF einen riesiges Maß an Respekt. Jeder der The Rock kennt mag ihn und jeder der Dwayne kennt mag ihn auch. Das ist das Beste was ich jemals gelesen habe. Leute kauft es!!! If ya smell what The Rock is cookin!!!

4.0 von 5 Sternen An Electrifying Read 9. Januar 2000
Von Steve F.
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I've been a wrestling fan most of my life, and as an adult, I've been fascinated with the behind-the-scenes aspect, the business part of it. I thought Mick Foley's "Have a Nice Day" was tremendous, and looked equally forward to this book. It's not as good as that work, but "The Rock Says. . ." is a decent book in its own right.
Yes, I was disappointed that the Rock (Dwane Johnson) didn't write the book all by itself. I also didn't care for the sections that were esentially play-by-plays of various matches as seen through the Rock's (the character, not Dwane Johnson's) eyes. I was familar with those matches and they were mostly a distraction from the book. I would have also liked to have seen more about his interactions with current co-workers Mankind and HHH. But I'll review this book for what it is, not what it isn't.
Dwane's story, the Rock's story . . . now that was entertaining. I was thoroughly engrossed, and couldn't put the book down. It was a quick read, but I really enjoyed his story, how he got to be "the most electrifying man in sports entertainment." It's great to see the man behind the character. It was also very cool seeing all the insights behind the scenes of pro wrestling. Dwane Johnson is an honest, compassionate, hard-working, and entertaining guy, and "The Rock Says. . ." is a very worthwhile read for anyone, wrestling fan or not.

5.0 von 5 Sternen He Knows His Role 24. Juli 2000
Von Tina
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have recently read The Rock's book, "The Rock Says..." and I could not put it down. I think that for a man of his professional status and age, he has accomplished a lot both personally and professionally. The Rock went into depth about his own persona and the WWF. He really explained to us how it's done...how he likes to get it done. He did layeth the smaketh down and he brought it on! Being a 23 year old female, I happen to find this man distinguished, defined, intelligent, charsmatic and hot! On the side note, I had the chance to run into The Rock in Philadelphia March 26, 1999 . He was here for Wrestlemania and I accidentially ran into him at a local night club. I knew of him but did not know much about his professional image. While I was passing him, I turned to him and with hopeful doubt I asked, "Rock? " He turned his head, wearing his $200 sunglasses, smiled and gave me " The People's Eyebrow". From that moment on...I have been a fan of The Rock. After reading his book, I am glad to say that I have met "The People's Champion" because in my mind, he is a Champion to the people!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Rock is right on target with this book! 9. Juli 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The Rock, on the heels of the first original wrestling book (Mankind's Have a Nice Day) this book is no copy. I ordered this book before it came out here on Amazon.com. I read it quickly and diligently and it is an excellent read. It starts with Rock's family and his teenage years and michtef (you'll see what I'm talking about one you read the book). Then it moves into his college years. Him strating in to wrestling. Meeting a woman (Dany) and marrying her dispite her parents wishes and then it showes how hard Rocky works from a bad wrestler to a good wrestler. You'll see what I'm talking about. If you don't order this book that was at the top of the New York Times best selling list then your're really missing out.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good but disapointing 24. Februar 2000
Von tbone4455
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is an ok book, however it is in no way even almost as good as foleys book. The Rock does not really have a great story to tell. He didnt have to go threw many hardships before becoming a superstar. He was greatly aided by family members and friends who were close to the busiess. THE ROCK WAS GIVEN HIS OPPORTUNITY IN THE WWF BECAUSE OF HISCONNECTIONS. However it was his talent and charisma that brought him to superstardom. Maybe if Rock would have waited five or ten years from know then he would of had a more interesting story to tell. His pre-wrestling life was interesting especially his time in the CFL. However he seemed a little bit too arrogant with his stories about his younger life. There are no good locker room stories or inside dirt on any other wrestlers like in foleys book. It would have been great if the Rock woud of saved his arrogance for this part of the story and not chickened out. I would have loved to find out how the Rock really felt about some of the other superstars. The Rock was too afraid to mention names. Foley told everything like it really was and didnt hold back. I wanted to hear about the wrestling business from the inside, the Rock only touches on these type of things. The best thing about the book is that the Rock goes deeper into the chereography of a match then foley does. It was interesting to hear how he and his opponents planned a match. Overall the book was ok but it is junk compared to Cactus' book. I really wish that the Rock had waited a few years before doing a book. Also it would of helped it he had a backbone. Whats the point of writing the book if he was not going to be honest. Its hard for me to recommend this book when I know that the Rock held back and his story is not really complete. For hardcore wrestling fans only.
