WWE legend Dwayne Johnson alias The Rock has officially called time on his illustrious wrestling career.
The Rock made a name for himself during the WWE Attitude Era days in the 1990s and went on to dominate the game into the 2000s.
Speaking while promoting his latest movie Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, the iconic wrestler took stock of his hey days in the WWE before announcing the huge bombshell.
"I miss wrestling, I love wrestling. Yes, I do," SunSport quoted The Rock.
"I quietly retired from wrestling because I was lucky enough to have just a really wonderful career and accomplish what I wanted to accomplish, but there's nothing like a live crowd, a live audience, a live microphone as you both know," he conceded.

The 47-year-old quit WWE more than a decade ago, but has often made returns to the ring, including two WrestleMania showdowns with John Cena in 2012 and 2013.
The eight-time WWE champion last fight was against Erick Rowan at WretleMania 32, where he took just six seconds to defeat the American wrestler.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that John Cena, WWE legend, is considering to call it a day after he admitted retiring from professional wrestling had been on his mind.
Now that the Hollywood actor has hit 42, he may be leaning towards soon hanging up his trunks for good and taking up acting on a permanent basis.
