Under the agreement Dwayne Johnson signed, he was given the rights to names like “The Rock” along with 24 other names and phrases

It was announced in January that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had joined the board of directors of the company that owns World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), TKO Group Holdings. Under Johnson’s agreement with the group, he was given the trademark to his moniker, “The Rock.” Now, he is the owner of 24 more phrases and names that have been associated with him throughout his illustrious wrestling career.

Johnson is now the owner of the following:
“The Rock,” “Rocky Maivia,” “Team Corporate,” “Rock Nation,” “The Nation,” “Roody Poo,” “Candy Ass,” “Jabroni,” “If you smell what The Rock is cooking,” “The Samoan Sensation,” “The Blue Chipper,” “The Brahma Bull,” “The People’s Champion,” “The Great One,” “Know Your Role and Shut Your Mouth,” “Team Bring It,” “The Rock Just Bring It,” “The People’s Elbow,” “Rock Bottom,” “Finally, The Rock has come back to…,” “It doesn’t matter what…,” “Blue Hell,” “The millions… (and millions),” “Rockpocalypse,” “Project Rock” and “The most electrifying man in sports and entertainment.”

The previous announcement regarding Johnson joining the TKO Group’s Board of Directors stated that the company would help with his promotional, licensing, and other services regarding intellectual property.
