    Rocky Miavia (an homage to his father and grandfather "Soulman" Rocky Johnson and "High Chief" Peter Miavia) was actually not Dwayne's first wrestling name, it was his first name when he came up to the WWF but when he was just learning the ropes in Memphis' Ohio Valley Wrestling he was going by the name of Flex Cavana.

    As others have commented: he needs that suit in a couple sizes larger. How does he get into the pants? Jump from a closet with the pants hooked to a garbage bag holder?
    I get that he of course wants to show off that body - he probably spent years and years working on it. But then, why a suit? Just wear something else that accentuates those muscles better. Suits were never meant for very muscular people.
