Things weren’t always so easy for Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, who admitted his classmates thought he was an undercover cop.
Page Six shared a handy video of the former wrestler with throwback pictures of Johnson as a teenager, including the three different high schools he attended.
Johnson retweeted the video and added some of his personal history to the mix.
“Nice trip down memory lane. And yes, very true story when I moved from Hawaii to Nashville, I was already 6’4 225lbs with a pornstache at 15yrs old,” he said, adding, “the students in my new high school thought I was an undercover cop.”
His dashing looks were even too much for the women. “All the lovely ladies stayed far away from me,” he said.
It isn’t the first time the “Fighting With My Family” star has been open about his past. A few years back he shared a throwback Thursday picture of his teenage years.
He noted that by the time he was 16 he had been “enrolled in four high schools across the country due to being evicted and lil’ trouble with the law.”
“All the kids in every high school thought I was an undercover cop cause I looked like a mutated, yet handsome SOB of a man child,” the post continues. Adding that he “straight up kicked puberty’s ass early in life.”

#TBT By the time I was 16 yrs old, I had already enrolled in four high schools across the country due to being evicted and lil' trouble with the law.. McKinley HS (Honolulu, HI), Glencliff HS (Nashville, TN), McGavock HS (Nashville, TN), Freedom HS (Bethlehem, PA). I was also 6'4 225lbs, rockin' a dead caterpillar on my lip (aka the porn 'stache) and all the kids in every high school thought I was an undercover cop cause I looked like a mutated, yet handsome SOB of a man child. Plus in Nashville I was already hangin' out in honey tonk dive bars on Music Row and hustlin' cars from crackheads. Yup, one of the many reasons why I'm a grateful man for the life I have today and also grateful I straight up kicked puberty's ass early in life. #GodBlessSamoanAndBlackGenetics #AndGodBlessOurTeenageYears #AndWTFWasIThinkingWithThisMustache
It isn’t a surprise his fellow students thought he was an undercover cop, aren’t fanny packs standard issue?
