The Rock Could Unify America As US President, Says The Undertaker
| Last updated
The Undertaker believes Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson could unify the United States if he ran for President.
The WWE legend, real name Mark William Calaway, says his former nemesis has the charisma and the wit to bring people with him.
Johnson recently announced in an interview that he would 'consider a presidential run in the future if that's what the people wanted'.
And speaking to TMZ, the Undertaker said he would back him all the way if he chose to go for it.
The 55-year-old said: "That man works his tail off and he dives in wholeheartedly in everything that he does and if he gets his mindset that he wants to make a run at politics, ya know what? I think he'll do it."
When asked if he thinks Johnson, 48, could help the country heal following recent months and years of division, the former wrestler said: "I think so. He's so charming, he's so witty, I think he can be the uniter that people are looking for.
"I know that he has the charisma. Maybe all it would take would be one eyebrow, and he'd look at the left, raise the eyebrow. Look at the right, raise an eyebrow and hit 'em with 'the People's Elbow."
He added: "I don't know man, there's so many possibilities and if that's what he chooses to do, I'll support wholeheartedly in his efforts to do so."
But what would people call him if he did become the leader of the free world?
Well, the Undertaker has a couple of ideas.
"I think people would still call him Rock, I don't know. I would hope I would have that clout that I can get away with calling him Rock, or Jabroni," he told the site.
Speaking to USA Today earlier this year, Johnson confirmed he would be up for taking a punt at the Oval Office.
He said: "I would consider a presidential run in the future if that's what the people wanted.
"Truly I mean that, and I'm not flippant in any way with my answer.
"That would be up to the people... So I would wait, and I would listen. I would have my finger on the pulse, my ear to the ground."
But it's not the first time he's talked about potentially running for President.
Back in 2017, he told The Ellen DeGeneres Show he was 'seriously considering' putting himself up for the top job.
And in an interview with GQ in the same year, he said: "A year ago it started coming up more and more.
"There was a real sense of earnestness, which made me go home and think, 'Let me really rethink my answer and make sure I am giving an answer that is truthful and also respectful.'
"I didn't want to be flippant - 'We'll have three days off for a weekend! No taxes!'"
