This development was announced together with Johnson’s inclusion in the board of the TKO Group, the same company that accommodates WWE and UFC, a major reveal made by Reader Wall sources.

“The Rock,” a name ancestrally connected to Johnson’s father, Rocky Johnson, an inducted WWE Hall of Famer and the organization’s first-ever Black champion (alongside wrestling partner Tony Atlas) has long been an impactful part of Johnson’s career. Johnson himself carries an extensive career past wrestling, with business investments in Seven Bucks Productions, Teremana Tequila, ZOA Energy, Project Rock apparel, and the United Football League.

“The Rock” on Widening Global Reach of WWE and UFC

In a prepared statement, Johnson expressed his desire to facilitate further international expansion of worldwide leaders in sports and entertainment – the TKO, WWE, and UFC. Johnson spoke about his journey and connection with hard-working athletes and performers in delivering exceptional entertainment to audiences.

TKO Group Holdings Inc, as communicated by our sources at Reader Wall, stated that Johnson’s appointment in the board, effective Tuesday, emphasizes their commitment to consistent value delivery, strong performance, and strategic growth through UFC and WWE initiatives.

Johnson’s Prolific Wrestling Career With WWE

Johnson embarked on his iconic wrestling journey with WWE in 1996. The third-generation wrestler attained popularity with his thrilling rivalries with other wrestling sensations like “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Triple H and his signature finishing maneuver, The Rock Bottom. Johnson has had eight successful WWE Championship runs, a New York Times bestselling autobiography, “The Rock Says,” and a plethora of movie appearances, including “Fast X,” “Black Adam,” “Jungle Cruise” and ”Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.”

Johnson made recent appearances on World Wrestling Entertainment’s “Smackdown” and “Raw” programs, causing speculation of a potential performance in this year’s WrestleMania.

Johnson: An Asset to TKO Board

Ariel Emanuel, CEO of TKO, welcomed Johnson and his immense talent, stating his invaluable experience in creating content and building globally renowned consumer brands will be a gamechanger in TKO’s growth. On the same day, it was announced that Brad Keywell will also join the board. Keywell is a well-known entrepreneur, co-founding multiple companies like Groupon, Echo Global Logistics, MediaOcean, and Uptake Technologies, and currently serves as the founder and executive chairman at Uptake Technologies.

According to Reader Wall, the inclusion of Johnson and Keywell will broaden the number of TKO’s board members from 11 to 13.
