Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Talks to BBC; He's still close to Vince
In an 20 minute interview with Colin Murray on BBC Radio 5Live in the United Kingdom, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson talked a lot on his cross over from Wrestling to Acting. Below are highlights: * He said he was proud of Mickey Rourke doing the Wrestling at WrestleMania 25. He talked about how his father trained him, and loved both the movie and Rourke's commitment. * In his transition to acting he said that he didn't worry about what name he went by, be it "The Rock, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson or just Dwayne Johnson and that he just wants to be a good actor. * He said he loved doing his own physical stuff in his new movie and says that he wants to use some wrestling moves in his films. * He said he was still very close to Vince, the writers and lots of the Wrestlers. * He added that he isn't coming back to wrestling for a long time now, yet could make a one night return when he does. And that Vince says that the WWE is his playground and that he can come back and have some fun for a night anytime he wants. * He said that because he was in the UK and had press to do in the morning, he didn't watch WrestleMania 25, yet knows what wrestlers are going through on a big night like that.
