– Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has finally revealed why he wore wrestling boots that exposed his calf muscles.
On Saturday, Johnson responded to a fan on Twitter wondering where he got the idea to wear open-calf wrestling boots. He said the idea came from former wrestler George Wells, who most notably faced Jake “The Snake” Roberts at WrestleMania 2. Johnson said that in the 80s, Wells gave his father, Rocky Johnson, a pair of open-calf wrestling boots. Johnson found those boots one day and that’s where he got the idea.
The open calf wrestling boot was an idea for OG wrestler named George Wells. He gave my pops an old pair of his boots in the 80’s. They were in storage and my pops never wore em. I found em and thought it was a dope idea. Plus luckily I have big calves to fill them out 😂🙏🏾
