[10.0] "I am surprised that he is has a lower rating. Come on he was great! He just not known as the Rock's father he was know as a wrestler in the 70's and 80's. He had the physiques what. I also found him exciting to watch. He is a pioneer for black wrestlers along with Tony Atlas. His moves were entertaining."

"Just commenting for now, as I was a huge fan of his. He would wrestle any style necessary. Great look, he was the complete package. I'd always heard whispers about him being hard to work with at times and MAN, does he come off bad in Tony Atlas' book. I'll wait for more of the fallout on that, because if his ego broke up an historic team, my rating will reflect that."

[7.0] "wrestled in a day and age when black men were not well treated by the world of wrestling. territories used to only have room for 1 black wrestler on the roster at a time. they would move the boys around every few months to keep them fresh. Johnson was almost 40 when he finally got a chance to work WWE in the early 1980's and get his run as tag champs with Tony Atlas. If Johnson had been born 20 years later he would have had a better career than a guy like Ron Simmons for comparison. If Johnson had been white, he would have had runs with titles like the US belt in NWA and the Intercontinental in WWE but was probably never going to be a world champ."

[7.0] "While most people in today’s day and age only think of Rocky Johnson as the father of The Rock there was a lot more to him then that. If it was not for him (and Tony Atlas too of course) paving the way we would not be able to have teams like current champions The New Day being Tag Team Champions. And that was only something he had done in a four year span that he was in the WWE. What he had achieved in the 18 years prior is too numerous to mention. There is a reason why Rocky Johnson is in the WWE Hall of Fame and it isn’t just because he is the father of the most electrifying man in sports entertainment. No it is because he truly is a legend of the ring"

[6.0] "Though Rocky Johnson was perhaps more decorated during his time with the NWA (and their respective territories), he'll probably be best remembered for his time with the WWF (in addition to being The Rock's father. )"

[6.0] "I'd say he was more talented in the ring than his son."

"hab ihn zu selten gesehen um ihn zu bewerten... Mich würde aber mal interessieren, wieso er einen anderen Nachname hat als sein Sohn und sein Bruder"

[6.0] "Unvergessen ist sein Tag Title Run mit Tony Atlas, obwohl er inzwischen ja viel bekannter als der Vater von The Rock ist!"
