    Dwayne Johnson has adjusted his life between his career in WWE and acting but he aimed to become a professional footballer once. He eventually gave up at one point and decided to pursue something else.

    Johnson then aimed to become a CIA agent but he discovered in his criminology program that he was not cut out academically for the profession. The problem was his grades.

    He stated at the time, “My criminal justice professor and advisor (Dr. Paul Cromwell) convinced me that the best operative I could become for the agency is one that also had a law degree. I thought that’s a great idea, until I realized no respectable law school would ever let me in with my pile of steaming sh*t grades. End of story.”
