He had several successful feuds during this time, and would turn face the following year, becoming “The People’s Champion”, and then allied with Vince McMahon as part of the stable, “The Corporation”. His success began during the late 1990s up to the 2000s, in which period he started breaking records, and also won the WWE Championship. Eventually, he would take his first film opportunity in “The Scorpion King”, which would lead him to start transitioning to a film career, eventually completing his run with WWE in 2004.

Since transitioning to films, Dwayne has appeared in numerous popular films, including “Walking Tall”, “Gridiron Gang”, and “Race to Witch Mountain”.
