It isn’t just wrestling fans that smell what The Rock is cookin’ but plenty of his media colleagues see that Mr. Dwayne Johnson is indeed just that. Former ESPN broadcaster Cari Champion co-hosts with The Rock on NBC’s Titan Games and in an exclusive chat with PopCulture.com, Champion did happen to champion The Rock as a legitimate People’s Champion.
“When DJ walks in that area, he has ‘it’ and you can feel it, it’s palpable,” Champion told PopCulture. “And it’s not a cocky ‘it,’ it’s the reaction that people have to him, and he has towards them as well. It really does make or break their day, and they enjoy it. He reacts to that. He appreciates that. He consumes that energy because it really means something. At the same time, it doesn’t go to his head.”
“One of the biggest things that I was respecting of he’s the biggest superstar in the world and has a level head,” Champion said.
“I’ve interviewed a lot of stars over the years,” she said. “I’ve met a lot of people and at the end of the day they end up being a lot like you in terms of just basic, kind people if you can get past all of who they appear to be. DJ goes out of his way to be comfortable and jokes with us.”
