— This morning, movie and part-time WWE star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson took a flight back to the U.S. to film the season finale of TNT’s “The Hero”, due to air Thursday.

Johnson has been in Budapest filming the “Hercules” 2014 movie, and also tweeted about turning down an offer to join WCW at the height of the Monday Night Wars. Asked if Turner ever made an offer, The Rock responded…

“Yup in the beginning. Offered 2xs my WWE salary. No thank you. My goal was to ‘move the crowd’ first. Money would come later.”
