Sure, The Rock might have been sexy during his wrestling career in the ‘90s. He knew who he was, and wasn’t pretending to be anything else. He was a mass of muscle, standing at 6’5″ 245 pounds who existed for men to marvel at as he pummeled weaker beings who weren’t as good for ratings.
Ellen Degeneres, being the authority on sexy men that she is, helped Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson announce his status as a sex symbol to the world on her talk show.
I have a few problems with this. First and foremost, if anything is making him the sexiest man alive, it’s not his sense of humor.

What can I say, America, this is the second time in a week that an outrageous celebrity was given a prestigious position that he didn’t deserve and I am not here for it..
