AUSTIN, TEXAS: Actor and former WWE Superstar Dwayne Johnson, simply known as “The Rock,” made an interesting observation about his Democratic friends, telling podcast host Joe Rogan that they were “loyal to the party,” not to Biden.
On “The Joe Rogan Podcast,” Johnson also explained how individuals can have friends who are both Republicans and Democrats, without thinking much about it.

Joe Rogan praises Dustin Rhodes
Rogan was full of praise for Dustin Rhodes in the episode. Looking back at the first WWE 1996 Survivor Series match, The Rock was enjoying all the other celebrities in attendance. He could not have been the biggest star of the evening without their support and recognition, he stressed.
Rogan then talked about Dustin Rhodes, also known as Goldust. Looking back, the two saw Rock pin Goldust in his first WWE match as Rocky Maivia. Dwayne identified the man as Goldust while watching the video.
Joe Rogan said: “This guy was amazing.” Even though Rogan was once critical of professional wrestling, it seems he is now starting to recognize the legacy of the industry’s stars.
