Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson didn’t have a lot cooking when he first started out as a professional wrestler.
Fans will see just how far the movie star has come when the Young Rock Season 2 finale airs Tuesday at 8/7c on NBC.
As seen in TVLine’s exclusive photos above and below,
The two-part closer tracks Dwayne (played by Uli Latukefu) in 1996 Memphis as he follows in his father and grandfather’s footsteps pursuing a career in professional wrestling.
Just as in previous episodes this season, Dwayne is in Memphis to develop his skills and test out his tag-team strengths after the WWF sends him to the bustling Tennessee city.
It is here that fans will see Dwayne use his first wrestling name (spoiler alert: it was not “The Rock”) and test out his not-so-great skills on the microphone.
Dwayne goes up against Jerry Lawler in the installment, and he fights back when a booker bullies Downtown Bruno; he even meets Ric Flair.
The finale also fast-forwards to 2032, where presidential candidate Dwayne Johnson’s conflict with Dr. Julien comes to a head.
In part two of the finale, candidate Johnson survives the ups and downs of election day. While in a 1984 flashback, Rocky and Ata are at a crossroads with their futures in wrestling.
Part of the storyline also delves into 1987, where teenage Dwayne (Bradley Constant) learns that the family is leaving Nashville.
