The fanny pack appears in an awesome throwback photo of a young Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. He’s sporting a flat-top ‘do, turtle neck sweater with a chunky silver chain, high-waisted belted jeans, and a brown leather fanny pack. In the pic, Johnson is giving his best Blue Steel impression, “casually” posing as he leans against a wall with one hand resting over his man-bag. “Fanny pack and lean take it to a whole other level,” he posted on Instagram along with the photo back in 2014.
So, what was in that fanny pack that Johnson was cradling so protectively? “Phone numbers … And stuff like that,” he told E! News “Daily Pop.” Johnson admitted there were also “a lot of inappropriate things” that he didn’t want to reveal. He also claimed that back in the ’90s, fanny packs were the pro wrestling accessory du jour.
Per WWE, wrestling’s been a part of Johnson’s DNA forever — literally. His father, Rocky Johnson, was a pro too. Even before he was dubbed “The Rock” — one of the WWE’s top wrestlers ever — Johnson spent a lot of time in and around the ring. He traveled around the world watching his dad compete, and he forged friendships with all the wrestling greats of the time, such as Andre the Giant. Johnson even said the legendary wrestler “was a hero of mine” and “treated me like his own son.”
