I was re-reading Greg Oliver's book The Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame:  The Canadians, and something caught my eye.  In the profile of Rocky Johnson, it states that his given name is Wayde Bowles.

So is The Rock's real name Dwayne Bowles and not Dwayne Johnson?  Or, did Rocky legally change his name at some point in his life?

You know that actually came up with me about a week and a half ago while watching an interview with former 'International Wrestling's' promoter, Al Zinck. They were talking about Rocky Johnson being from Nova Scotia and Al called him by that last name. The first thing I wondered too was if Rocky legally changed his last name to Johnson just due to the fact that Dwayne has always used Johnson as his last name.
Did anyone read 'The Rock's' book? Does he say anything about the name in it?
This might be a question for 'Da Meltz or even worse...'The Savior" Dirty Dan.


















BTW I was just joking about asking CM. Let's get that clear here.  ;)

FWIW, years ago I saw a real names list that listed Rock's real name as Dwayne Glasteau.

I'm pretty sure Rocky Johnson's real name is Drew Glasteau. Wade Bowles was just another ring name he used.

I agree with you PR.  First time I ever seen Rocky's (real) name it was Drew Glasteau - then I seen it a short time later as a typo/error as Drew Gastineau - then Drew Glasteau again.  My understanding is that Glasteau is the proper name, and the Wade Bowles was an early ring name.

VERY interesting and informative-thank you all.

I wonder how Greg Oliver let that slip by..he is usually pretty thorough.

Whoever wrote the wiki article on him said his real name is Wade Bowles and he used Drew Glasteau as a ring name. It is wikipedia though.

Its a catch 22 as to whether a match where Perez defeated Loo Thez should be included.
