Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has done many things in his lifetime. He’s been a multiple time WWE Champion, he’s been “franchise viagra” to several successful movie series, he’s been the highest-paid actor in the world, he’s been a hero to many and has won the internet more times than anyone can count. Heck, he might even be the president someday. And now he has a brand new title to add to his resume.
On Tuesday, People magazine announced that The Rock will be on their cover as their 2016 Sexiest Man Alive, a prestigious honor that has been awarded to luminaries like Mark Harmon, Harry Hamlin, Nick Nolte and Adam Levine.
So what did the former WWE champ, 44, think when he first heard about his latest title?
“I said, ‘That’s awesome.’ And then what went through my mind was just how cool and exciting it is,” Johnson tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “And then I thought, ‘Wow, we’ve pretty much reached the pinnacle.’ I’m not quite too sure where we go from here. I’ve done it all, this is it.”
He’s reached the pinnacle! It’s all downhill from here. We just hope this helps The Rock finally break through into the mainstream. He has toiled in obscurity for far too long.
