There’s no debating it. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a bona fide movie star. However, the above clip shows us the action star at an earlier point in his career, when the world only knew him as a WWE wrestler. In this sixth season episode of Star Trek: Voyager, Johnson portrays an alien prizefighter, similar to his WWE persona. When a few members of the Voyager crew are captured by aliens, Seven of Nine is forced to face off against Johnson’s character in a death match.
Sounds pretty awesome, right? Some people might argue that seeing The Rock on Star Trek feels a bit strange, however, once you watch the full episode, it actually works surprisingly well. Even back then, Johnson proved to have a powerful on-screen presence.
