Rocky "Soulman" Johnson held 56 titles in his multi-decade Pro Wrestling career. He was the first African American to win the heavyweight title in Florida, Georgia, Texas, and the Carolinas. He's also father of WWE and movie megastar Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. But it took determination to overcome a lot of adversity at a young age! (Hear the latest episode of The Seesaw Sessions below)
On the latest episode of the Seesaw Sessions, Rocky shares his life stories of how he had to leave home at 14 because of an abusive man his mother was dating, how he hitchhiked across Canada with barely any money and worked a job making 90 cents an hour just to survive, and how he finally ended up training to become the legendary wrestler he was.
