As 2022 comes to an end, it’s hard to say Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson had a more impactful year in his acting careereven if this effect had him long in making Black Adam almost movie tear alone List of DC cinema for years. But was it his year as an actor? Absolutely not, because this was, and forever will be, the year 2000.

Because that was the time of “Tsunkatse” episode fifteen Star Trek: VoyagerThe penultimate sixth season aired, marking Johnson’s acting debut before he truly exploded on the scene a year later in The return of the mummy. A ridiculous idea was born for broadcaster UPN to cross over two of its biggest shows –Voyager And the WWF Ni WWE SmackDown—Johnson had a key role in the episode as the Pendari Champion, a hulking fighter in the melee blood sport Tsunkatse that swings from toe to toe with Seven of Nine captured.

it’s a severely Silly, just because Star Trek Fans The Rock is perhaps the third most popular guest star –Nine depths of space Legends JJ Hertzler and Jeffrey Combs, best known for playing General Martok Wuyun (among Many other roles!) respectively, in VoyagerGuest predecessors also take turns. Hertzler plays a fellow fighter in this famous death match episode, the Hirogen – a race of Predator-esque hunters Voyager She previously encountered him – who trained the captive Seven in the arts of the Tsunkatse so that she could survive long enough to be rescued by the crew, while Combs shines as Penk, the suave gentleman in the Tsunkatse tournaments that captures Seven as his ultimate new warrior.

Sometimes that’s all you need, and all is well, but beyond a few specific roles, it’s hard to argue particularly that Johnson has carved out for himself an acting career that challenges him greatly, and is instead largely challenged by a number of The stunts he did. He can do that, how many tight T-shirts can fit his giant arms in rolled up sleeves, how many times can he blur the line between the character he’s supposed to play and that of The Rock in the audience’s head.

Seven of Nine V. Pendari Champion (Dwayne Johnson The Rock)

Bandari’s hero is a progenitor of what would become Johnson’s career both literally and spiritually, because they literally just rock it with some. Star Trek Exotic forehead makeup application. Perhaps this is the perfect fit for Johnson’s very specific stature. The idea was in its purest form, when rock was rock, but Askance, it was something new. You could even say that Johnson has spent nearly two and a half decades in his acting career chasing the same high level of “Tsunkatse,” but finds himself unable to replicate the joy of the first time he managed to turn a rocker into a cross-medium performance.

Everything Dwayne Johnson was—at the peak of his wrestling career then, at the peak of his acting now—in Pendari Champion. Muted natures, break up a bit for the trademark People Eyebrow. Rock Bottom is revered as the second greatest feat of military combat in history Star Trekjust behind Double fist punch. The fact that he barely had dialogue, and the fact that his costume had to have a belt so cheap that it looked a little different than it does in any normal episode of SmackDown. It’s Johnson’s full embrace into an alien world Star Trek Plot about trying to escape a dangerous alien fight club: It exists to be Johnson, however Not Johnson.
