#ThrowBackThursday should cease existing after this particular Thursday, because The Rock killed it.

Once, Dwayne Johnson was a teenager. But he prefers the term “man child.” He lucked out growing into his body early, but he surely had growing pains, an awkward stretch (probably), and a delinquent streak, which he alludes to below:

“All the kids in every high school thought I was an undercover cop cause I looked like a mutated, yet handsome SOB of a man child,” he writes. The “hustlin’ cars from crackheads” in Nashville sounds frightening, but maybe it was future homework for the Fast and Furious franchise.

Take note, teens: Just because you might not be able to sprout a proud lip cozy doesn’t mean you can’t grow up to become the Rock.
