Like many other wrestlers turned actors, Dwayne Johnson has a long history in Hollywood.

He first gained popularity in the Attitude Era of WWF under the stage name The Rock. While he made a name for himself in the wrestling industry, he starred in The Mummy Returns (2001) alongside Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz.

From there, Johnson went on to star in The Scorpion King (2002), Walking Tall (2004), and The Game Plan (2007). But in recent years, The Rock’s popularity in film has only grown due in part to his work with The Walt Disney Company, after voicing the demigod Maui in Moana (2016) and starring in Jungle Cruise (2021). It was also recently announced that he would return in a live-action Moana (2016) remake with Aulii Cravalho, based on the animated classic.

The Lawsuit

Dwayne Johnson is one of the most famous names in Hollywood. But, that popularity may be questioned as the actor has been named in a massive $3 billion lawsuit.

A former TNA and WWE star (Trenesha Biggers, also known as Rhaka Khan) is seeking $3 billion in a lawsuit that names multiple wrestlers, including The Rock. She alleges that those in her case worked together in a conspiracy to kidnap her and her children. In addition to Dwayne Johnson being involved in the kidnapping plot, she also lists multiple other businesses and organizations, including The State of Texas, The El Paso Child Protective Services, The NYPD, The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, New York ACS, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc., Sigma Phi Epsilon, Suffolk County NY, Bank of America, Home Depot, and the FBI.

While the $3 billion lawsuit involving Dwayne Johnson has not progressed in months, court records now indicate that Biggers has paid the court fees in full, allowing the case to proceed. As of today, May 3, 2023, none of the defendants in the complaint have been served.

Trenesha Biggers is currently on the El Paso Police Department’s wanted list, and back in 2019, was placed on El Paso’s most wanted fugitive list for child custody charges.

She has not wrestled since 2011 and has posted videos about her criminal case on Youtube. Currently, Disney has no plans to drop The Rock from any upcoming projects, including the live-action Moana film.
