Epithet

Dwayne Johnson first received the name "The Rock" when he became a professional wrestler for the World Wrestling Federation. Even after the end of his wrestling career and the beginning of his acting career, his nickname stuck with him.

Epic Simile

Compared to all of the other men in the gym, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson appeared to be like Hercules, whose physical strength far exceeded that of all other mortal men.
