*** Or, occasionally, the "jabroni-beatin', pie-eatin', trailblazin', Eyebrow-raisin' People's Champ".
*** During one comeback, he flubbed the line completely and it ended up being "The Jabroni-Eatin', Pie-Beatin' Eatin', The Rock says he's walkin' fast, whuppin' ass, People's Champ THE ROCK!"
*** On his return to Raw on February 14, 2011 he named himself as the Jabroni-Beatin', Pie-Eatin', Trailblazin', Eyebrow Raisin', Step off the brake, Foot on the Gas, Always Ready to whup some Ass People's Champ!

* {{Irony}}: His most recent look (BaldOfAwesome with a [[BadassBeard Badass Goatee]]) actually favors Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin somewhat.



** Subverted in his first promo in seven years, when he completely annihilated the TV-PG image the WWE has cooked up for itself in the past few years. (Ohnoes, he said sumbitch; [[SarcasmMode they're gonna take him off WrestleMania]]...)

** Wrestling/TheBigShow had the misfortune of finding out in early 2000 that [[WhatTheHellHero calling out the Rock]], even on the grounds of being a disrespectful {{Jerkass}} towards the rest of the roster who were looking to him for leadership[[note]]Mick Foley was on his way to retirement, and Stone Cold and the Undertaker were out with injuries at the time.[[/note]] against the [[Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon [=McMahon=]]]-[[Wrestling/TripleH Helmsley]] reign of terror, is an easy way to get the fans to reject you. It got to the point that, despite succesfully proving he was the rightful winner of that year's Royal Rumble and having ''The Rock himself conceding the argument'', it massively backfired on his attempt at getting the crowd on his side of the argument, as The Rock used the rest of the promo to mock the giant's inability to earn credibility.

* RhymesOnADime: All his "Jabroni beating, pie eating..." rants end with him rhyming, pretty impressive since most of his promos are improvised.
--> "...stronger than a bull, faster than a buck, the best thing to hit Canada since [[CheapHeat the Maple Leafs suck]]!"
--> "...step off the brakes, put on the gas, ready to come here and whip some candy ass!"
* TheRival: Stone Cold Steve Austin, Triple H. Later Randy Orton indirectly, as he tried to duplicate the Rock's success as a "third generation superstar".

* SelfDeprecation: After ripping John Cena about ''Film/TheMarine'' at the 2008 WWE Hall of Fame, Rock added he was only kidding and said, "Hey, you know what? I made ''Film/{{Doom}}.'' Did you see it? *beat* Yeah, no one else did either."

* ShoutOut: In his feud with John Cena, the Rock referred to Cena as a "[[TheFlintstones Yabba-Dabba Bitch]]".



* TakeThat: The Rock's first heel turn came when the fans [[HypeBacklash didn't buy in to his "chosen one" status]]. Not only did they boo him (as a babyface) they threw things at him and even crossed the line (he was once met with a "Die, Rocky, Die" chant). So he and Vince sat down and hashed out his heel persona and Vince told him to basically feed the crowd's hatred back to them in his unique style. So for most of his first heel run he vented his frustrations at the crowd and often held nothing back.

* HamToHamCombat: The Rock and Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin, being the two biggest stars of the AttitudeEra had some great instances of this. To many to name, but special mention goes to the time they sang "Margaritaville" together.

* TheRunnerUpTakesItAll: Though it can be debated endlessly, general consensus was that he was the second biggest star of the AttitudeEra to StoneColdSteveAustin by wrestling aficionados. And from that? He has become one of the biggest, highest-paid action stars in the world.

** As did his opening monologue in the Season 42 finale of ''[[Series/SaturdayNightLive SNL]]'', where he's considering a run for President in 2020; he says he'll get the minority vote because every minority group assumes that he's whatever they are.
