This morning we broke news that Dwayne Johnson was dropping â€œThe Rockâ€ nickname. It appears this information was taken out of context from another reporter. Below are two submissions from readers contradicting the claim: Shane Trotman Reporting: This morning on Orlando's Doc and Johnny Morning show they had and interview with The Rock promoting Gridiron Gang. In it he said off the bat he is not dropping The Rock moniker, he said he was glad that he could not remember the journalist who was, since they also talked about Walking Tall and his other movies. He did say that they took it all out of context but he was always going to be The Rock just as he was going to be Dwayne Johnson. Mike Ramos Reporting: I live in Orlando, FL and on the way to work this morning The Rock was on a local radio station. (XL 106.7) They asked him about the report he may be dropping his name and he denied ever saying that. Something he said was completely taken out of context. Itâ€™s a false rumor and said he loves being known as â€œThe Rockâ€.
