Dwayne Johnson cemented a great legacy in the WWE industry for quite a long time before venturing into Hollywood. While his transition met with many obstacles in the industry, he eventually made a place of himself among several talented actors in the acting world. But, was it worth the talent he has? Despite the continuous efforts he put through in his acting career, his projects seemed to have mismatched with what he can offer to his fans.
His acting career took a major fall when his most anticipated return in DC turned out to be a disappointment among fans. And looks like they have already decided to cheer for stars like John Cena and Dave Bautista who impressed them with their latest projects.
John Cena and Dave Bautista’s Acting Projects are Shining Among Fans!
Dave Bautista and John Cena are one of the most successful wrestling crossovers in the acting industry. The former gained international recognition with his role as Drax the Destroyer in Marvel’s The Guardians of The Galaxy trilogy. Meanwhile, the latter gained prominence with his portrayal of Jakob Toretto in the 9th installment of The Fast and The Furious franchise.
Both the duo reprised their role this year in their respective franchise giving a great performance that many fans adored. Bautista has garnered major acclaim for his wide acting range. From playing a warrior in Dune to a comic character in the Marvel franchise, he has proven his acting skills.
The same goes for John Cena, who gained wider acclaim with his role as Peacemaker in The Suicide Squad. The duo continued to deliver a massive range despite starring as a supporting character in several films which again shows their acting potential.
Dwayne Johnson’s Acting is Not Enough to Tackle The Duo’s Acting Range
While the former won fans’ hearts by showing off his loving side in James Gunn’s final Marvel film, the latter’s antagonist role in Fast X gave an adrenaline rush to fans. However, when it comes to Dwayne Johnson, who is of the same era as the other two, his acting trajectory is not impressing the fans. Even his 2022’s Black Adam turned out to be a box-office disappointment!
Online commentators took to Twitter to share their opinions on who among the three is the best actor. One fan put Bautista on the top, Cena in the middle with The Rock on the third. Others chimed in to share their views. Check out the tweet here.
Dwayne is still too high on your list

The Rock could be a great actor like the dude is insanely charismatic but he just isnt willing to take risks and only plays variations of the same generic action character in every movie

That’s inarguably true.
Dwayne Johnson plays the same dude, in every movie… and it’s made him a lot of money, so good for him.
But Bautista is just absolutely killing in the acting game. And even Cena has shown some range.

The Rock desperately wants to be a Face in acting and can’t accept he exudes Heel energy. The entire Black Adam ego saga ironically proved he was perfect to play Black Adam if they’d actually written him in-character and not as the ego stroker DJ wanted.

Unlike the other two actors, the Black Adam star has often tried to keep himself in the center of the spotlight when it comes to his film projects. Though it often ends up performing commercially well at the box office, it fails to bring his dynamic on-screen. It is one of the reasons why he is unable to stay below the duo in the list as per fans despite amassing an $800 million fortune.
