Dwayne Johnson has celebrated 21 years since he made his WWE debut by defending the daring fashion choices he made at the time.

The wrestler-turned-actor said his primary ambition was to buy a house for his parents when he started out.

The star known as The Rock tweeted: “Crazy it all started 21yrs ago today. Made my @wwe debut.

“My #1 goal was buy my parents their first home. 3yrs later in ‘99 I was able to.

“No idea where this crazy road would lead me, I just knew I was willing to work my ass off and that I loved the hell outta Waffle House.”

When one fan replied making fun of some of his fashion choices, particularly a shiny gold waistcoat and unbuttoned silk shirt, Johnson replied: “Gold lam’e matching vest and pants at the VMA’s and a completely open silk shirt at the Emmys were beautiful smart choices. So I thought.”

Since retiring from wrestling, Johnson has become one of the most successful actors in Hollywood, joining the Fast And Furious franchise, taking a starring role in the new Jumanji offering and headlining his own sports drama Ballers.
