From unlimited fame and love from the audience to the fans to millions of dollars to his name from several endeavors in films as well as business ventures, the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion has achieved all of this and much more through his unrelenting attitude and hustling nature.
The vision in mind to make the most of his opportunities and win at every single situation he is put in has helped him become one of the most influential personalities in the world. But growing up, the Hollywood superstar never imagined being revered as one of the biggest things in the business, in fact. his dream was always to become a covert CIA operative working for the United States Government, something that he couldn’t fulfill.

During his college days, the Baywatch star was heavily invested in his football career, but his real passion at the time was to pursue a career as a CIA operative in one of the departments. To reach that goal, he started to take criminology classes as well as discuss future prospects and ways he could achieve his dream with his university professor. But he soon dropped the plan as he realized that his grades weren’t up to the standards of getting selected into a renowned Law School. He talked about this on his Instagram page, saying:
“My criminal justice professor and advisor (Dr. Paul Cromwell) convinced me that the best operative I could become for the agency is one that also had a law degree, I thought that’s a great idea, until I realized no respectable law school would ever let me in with my pile of steaming s**t grades. End of story.”
Thus, failing to reach his goals in real life, he decided to live his dream in the reel life behind a rolling camera with superhits after superhits depicting a character belonging to a secret service.
