The Rock Reflects On Childhood Friendship With WWE President Nick Khan

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has opened up about his childhood friendship with WWE President Nick Khan, believing that they have finally came full circle.

On Instagram, Johnson shared a photo of himself, Nick, and Nick’s sister, Nahnatchka Khan. The WWE legend recalled becoming close with the Khans in Hawaii while his family were promoting pro-wrestling shows.

Explaining why he thinks it was fitting that Nick became WWE President, and that Nahnatchka helped to create the Young Rock series, The Rock captioned the photo:

“Means a lot to me. Years in the making. Full circle.

In the mid 1980’s, Nick Khan, his sister Nahnatchka Khan and myself used to run around as kids in Honolulu, Hawaii every month when my grandmother would promote her pro wrestling shows at our local arena.

As kids we LOVED the pro wrestling business and as adults, our love and respect for the wrestling business has become boundless.

Now years later…. Nick is WWE PRESIDENT.

Nahnatchka is one of the best TV show runners in Hollywood and the CREATOR OF YOUNG ROCK ~ our award winning TV series on NBC, based on my wild upbringing in the world of pro wrestling.

And I’ve gone on to do a thing or two and become famous for rocking a fanny pack.

Life is unpredictable. Amazing. Here we all are.

Nick Khan has served as WWE President & Chief Revenue Officer since August 2020. He has recently had a big impact on how WWE does business, notably pushing for more Saturday pay-per-views, and was the first within WWE to officially confirm NXT’s reboot earlier this year.

It was recently noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that Nick Khan would most likely be the name to take over from Vince McMahon, if he decided to step down, or something happened to him.
