The Rock just shared one of the greatest photos of all time, him at 11-years old, wearing his father’s tiny wrestling trunks while shirtless and holding his title belt. It’s the greatest thing you have seen all day!
The ‘Jumanji’ star dropped the mind-blowing picture on Instagram as a throwback Thursday, as a reminder to his legion of fans how early he was preparing to become the WWE champion!
In the awesome snap, Rock is sporting tiny white wrestling speedos and boots, with his father’s — Rocky Johnson — title belt over his shoulder like he had just taken the crown!
You Gotta See This!
“A lil’ throwback action to 1983, when I was 11 years old – I used to LOVE putting on my dad’s wrestling trunks, boots, jacket, and championship belts – dreaming of one day becoming a pro wrestling champion ??,” the Rock captioned the eye-popping photo!
But, he couldn’t let this one slip by without making fun of himself a little. “Only thing I forgot to wear was my training bra!!” he added.
At that point, he went a little harder on himself — remember he is only 11-years old in this picture! “C’mon afro tits, you’re gonna be late for school!” he added. The A-lister added several hashtags including, #thankgodforpubert #afrotits and #stillaBMF ?.

As you know, The Rock grew up to be one of the biggest stars in the world, and also one of the buffest men on the planet! If you look closely, you will see where he gets it from, his father was a massive man himself. He may not have known it at 11-years-old, but he grew up to be an absolute beast!
Fans are going nuts over the mind-blowing photo, and even a few celebrity friends are commenting on his young look.
NFL star JJ Watt posted, “This is art ?.”

Take a look at this awesome photo! Just a short four years later, The Rock had grown to 6’4″ and was pushing 200lbs!
“To that special time when I was a 15yr old punk kid, 6’4, barely 200lbs, creepy mustache and forced to leave Hawai’i to live in Nashville, TN – where I just enrolled in a new high school – and EVERYONE (students and teachers) treated me like I had the plague and stayed away because they were all convinced I was an undercover cop. True story. I had a WILD and unbelievable life and journey as a kid and teenager. Kickin’ puberty’s ass from day 1.#PornstacheJohnson #YoureUnderArrest,” he posted on IG.
