There is more than one royal family in wrestling.
Sports Illustrated is reporting That one of wrestling’s families has grown enormously, as a series of DNA tests revealed that the 5 children were fathered by “Soul Man” Rocky Johnson, the father of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The lengthy profile details their journey of discovering the five adults and their bond through various DNA tests, phone calls and even documentaries.
All of Rocky Johnson’s children make it clear that he doesn’t mind his half-brother. Adrian Bowles said, “Dwayne has nothing to do with the decisions his father made.” “He doesn’t even know who we are.” Another son of Johnson, Lisa Purvis, has said, “Dwayne owes us nothing.”
Nevertheless, Rock’s new siblings note that despite Rocky and Dwayne’s tumultuous relationship, they are somewhat jealous of the support the former has given the latter. When The Rock came to her hometown of Vancouver to film the 2017 film “Skyscraper,” Purvis said she couldn’t escape the photos, stories, and news stories of her famous half-brother. This caused massive depression for the filmmaker, saying that she doesn’t see Dwayne Johnson, saying “I only see that our father loves him, not me.” It was Lisa who arranged for a DNA test to confirm that all five were half-siblings.
Bowles said he would find himself “standing in the mirror, looking into my eyes, conversing with himself about why”. [he left],
While Rocky Johnson did occasionally reach out to his kids, it was his brother, Ricky, who, according to the profile, did a lot for his nieces and nephews. Ricky met most of his brother’s kids via Facebook, and he regularly holds Zoom meetings for the family. “I keep stressing that I love him,” he told Sports Illustrated. “I tell them that all the time, all the kids.”
