Dwayne Johnson in his early days pretty much appeared to be a bully to other people of his age who didn’t know him, but he was actually a bully-hating person. He got into fights over simple stuff as all other teenagers did.
The Rock in his teenage days had been locked up three or four times due to fighting, mostly beating others with his huge physique. But once he got his a** beat by a group of people who jumped him because previously he had beaten one of those guys in that group. So they simply ganged up on him.

In a podcast with Howard Stern, Dwayne Johnson revealed that later the guy ended up getting checked properly.
“Then I hit this one guy when I was fifteen, it sounds a little self-serving and I didn’t know he wound up having a brain tumor and I had no idea. He hit his head against the wall and went down, I kept punching him and he had to go to the hospital and they found out that he had a brain tumor”
