Dan Bilzerian Says It's 'Not Healthy' To Be As Big As The Rock

Dan Bilzerian Says It's 'Not Healthy' To Be As Big As The Rock

Dan Bilzerian has said he doesn’t think it’s healthy for Dwayne Johnson to be the size he is. 

The 41-year-old was talking about The Rock’s impressive physique, but went on to say that it can’t be good for him to consistently be as big and ripped as he is. 

Speaking on More Plates More Dates, the businessman and poker player suggested it was ‘unhealthy’ to be as consistently ripped as The Rock.

He said: “It’s unhealthy to sustain that level of mass. They show people that are, like, giants… you know, like basketball players and it’s just not healthy to be that big.”

Bilzerian then went on to praise Johnson for all his achieved, but claimed that he doesn’t think the wrestler turned actor is ‘authentic'. 

He said: “To me I don’t understand The Rock, don’t get me wrong, I respect what he’s f***ing done, the guy’s a f***ing beast, he’s amazingly charismatic, he’s always camera-ready.

"What he’s done with his career, he’s literally one of the most famous guys in the entire f***ing world from, like WWE, which is a pretty impressive transition. 


“He’s like the highest paid actor in the world - I don't think he’s the best actor - but, like, he’s still the highest paid, so hats off to him. 

"The thing I don’t like about The Rock is I don’t feel like he gets to be authentic. Here’s the thing, what’s the point in having f*** you money, if you never say f*** you? I feel like he doesn’t say, ‘f*** you’. 

"I do whatever the f*** I want. He does not. Unless like he is playing this character forever is what he wants. I don’t think that’s what he wants."

He went on to claim that the former wrestler isn’t able to say how he really feels, adding: "You’re not hearing what he wants to say, you’re hearing what his teams put together."

Last May, Johnson showed off his incredibly ripped physique as he prepared for his role in the Black Adam flick. 

The 49-year-old shared a snap of him mid-workout in the gym, his veins popping, arms bulging and shirt dripping with sweat.

Explaining that he'd been racking up the hours for a particular scene, Johnson said: "Late night training.


"Big week for #BlackAdam shooting my 'champion' scenes with my shirt off and showing my body.

"Been working extremely hard dieting, training and conditioning unlike any other role of my entire career.

"Manipulating water, sodium, cardio but also having to push and pull real iron to have dense, dry, detailed muscle.

"It's a real science that takes months and months to dial it all in with my strength & conditioning coach @daverienzi who keeps a very watchful eye, constantly fine tuning our strategy daily.

"As many of you know, the intense (and exciting) comic mythology of Teth Adam - he becomes the immortal 'champion' by the Gods.

"Blessed with the powers of Superman and dangerous magic from the wizards.

"Then his rage turns his soul dark, forever becoming Black Adam.

"Big week, grateful for the grind & support - here we go."
