#1 – Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson

AFI - 10 players - Dwayne Johnson - 3pic

One would have to dig deep to find anything on a Dwayne Johnson playing for the Calgary Stampeders in 1995. But yes, indeed, The Rock was a member of the Stamps for about two months after a career at the University of Miami. What’s even lesser known is that The Rock is also Canadian, by virtue of his wrestling father Rocky Johnson, who was born in Amherst, N.S. His career was short-lived, but Johnson is easily the most well-known alum the league has ever known. As a wrestler, The Rock is without peer, having 17 championship reigns in the WWE. Where he is truly making his mark, however, is in Hollywood where according to IMDB he has 82 acting credits. If you haven’t seen him in “Pain and Gain”, do so.
