There was a time when Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson first retired from his wrestling career when it was possible to see the former grappler become a big action star. With roles in kid-friendly puff pieces like “The Tooth Fairy,” however, someone should really try and talk the muscle-head actor into climbing back into the ring before it’s too late. In this script-by-committee attempt here, Johnson is following the movie career of another wrestler-turned-actor, Hulk Hogan. Hogan is an icon in the squared circle, but there’s only so far one can go with “Santa with Muscles” on your resume. Take note, Rock.
