UFC boss Dana White shares insider details on helping ‘The Rock’ to become the most followed American man

The Rock is one of the most popular superstars of all time. He is one of the few people who found a tremendous amount of success in both Hollywood and WWE and also the most followed American man on Instagram. But unknown to many, The Great One was not so keen on opening a social media account in the beginning.

It goes without saying that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of Hollywood and WWE’s biggest stars. He was the top star of the Stamford-based promotion before he went on to the movie industry. Looking back now, that was probably the best decision he could have made as it earned him tremendous success.

Dana White’s role in ‘The Rock’s’ social media success

Dwayne Johnson is one of the most followed people on Instagram right now. His following is growing day by day due to his connection with his fans and his extremely successful business ventures. He currently has about 390 million fans on Instagram. However, there was a time when The Brahma Bull was not interested in opening a social media account. Thankfully, he was convinced otherwise by UFC boss Dana White.

In an interview with the renowned broadcaster Piers Morgan, Dana talked about how he helped The Rock start his social media journey. According to White, there was a time where Dwayne Johnson was really hesitant about opening a social media account. However, the UFC boss convinced him that he will be a huge deal on social media due to his superstar status.

Furthermore, White explained that it would be beneficial to Johnson from a business perspective as well and got his social media team to help The Rock set up an account. Dana White said, “The rock didn’t want to be on social media and I said, ‘You’re crazy.’ I said, ‘Do you know how big you’ll be on social media?’ I kind of explained it to him from a business perspective on why he should do it and I actually set him up with my social media team and they got him started. ”

The UFC boss also highlighted both the good and bad side of social media in the modern age and talked about how it’s both a boon and a bane for people these days.
