Rocky Johnson was a Canadian former professional wrestler. While some know him as a great superstar in WWE history, others know him as the son-in-law of the famous High Chief Peter Maivia, and still others acknowledge him as the father of the Rock Dwayne Johnson. He was the first person of African-American descent to win World Tag Team Championship, a NWA Southern Heavyweight Memphis Champion, and a National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) Georgia Champion. He retired from the ring in 1991, but didn't stay away from wrestling, as he began training his son, who is a popular wrestler who keeps his father going. After been recruited by World Wrestling Federation (WWF), he feuded with champions like Mike Sharpe, Don Muraco, Greg Valentine, Buddy Rose, and Adrian Adonis. He made a tag team with Tony Atlas, and they were the first black tag team to hold the Tag Team Championship title. His son inducted him into the 2008 class of the WWE Hall of Fame.
