Season 3 of NBC’s ‘Young Rock’ celebrates the world of 1980s pro wrestling with star Dwayne Johnson


NBC kicks off a new comedy block Friday with George Lopez and his real-life daughter, Mayan, starring in the premiere of “Lopez vs. Lopez,” followed by the return of “Young Rock.”

Season 3 sees the continued evolution of the man who would become “The Rock”.

Fresh off his hit “Black Adam,” Dwayne Johnson returns to “Young Rock” on Friday after a fictional presidential campaign.

“I get a phone call,” Johnson said. “A very unexpected phone call that changes everything.”

But before that change can happen for the future, the series continues to look back at Johnson’s childhood when wrestling exploded.

“Wrestling had and enjoyed its first big boom in the early 80s when rock music and wrestling converged in such a powerful way,” Johnson said.

Colorful characters were both in and out of the ring.

“I can’t wait for you guys to see who Cyndi Lauper plays,” Johnson said.

And even though Johnson joined the family business, his success was not easy.

“I was getting booed from every arena across the country,” Johnson said.

This season continues its not-so-straight line to become The Rock.

“There’s a term I like to say,” Johnson said. “It was a moment of shift and click. We all look for that in life, where we jump into something and it clicks. And it’s perfect and you feel powerful and grounded and grounded.

A moment that “Young Rock” sets in motion.

“Young Rock” airs tonight at 7:30 p.m., following the premiere of “Lopez vs. Lopez.

An additional note about “Young Rock”, at least in part due to the pandemic, much of the show’s first two seasons were filmed in Australia. This season it is filming in the United States, including around Memphis.
