Young Rock Season 3 Story
Dwayne is vying for the presidency (fictional) of the United States in the year 2023 when the original story takes place. He travels back in time while speaking, remembering his younger years as a schoolboy in Hawaii when he was 10 years old, as a high school student in Pennsylvania, and as a college student at the University of Miami, where he was a football player.
A significant cliffhanger was left at the conclusion of Young Rock’s Season 2 storyline. Where the second season left off, we anticipate the third season to pick up immediately. After season 2 ended with his shaky 1997 WrestleMania debut, in which he wrestled The Sultan for the Intercontinental Championship in a lackluster match and was saved by his dad, Rocky Johnson, we anticipate that season 3 will delve even deeper into his WWE career and rise to become one of the country’s most recognizable professional wrestlers.
