the rock

Today is a special day because it is The Rock’s birthday. Dwayne Johnson was the highest paid actor of 2016, and he also happens to be the People’s Champion. Today is his 45th birthday, and Vince McMahon took to Twitter earlier today to wish the former WWE Champion a happy birthday.

Vince McMahon wasn’t the only high profile name from WWE that had well wishes for The Rock, as Triple H also wished Rock a happy birthday. Triple H and The Rock had a long rivalry in WWE, and Rock has said that Triple H and Steve Austin were his two favorite opponents.

Triple H reflected on their rivalry and also shared a cool, but somewhat embarrassing throwback photo.
