What is the relationship between the Scorpion King, a fairy and a rescuer? Dwayne Johnson obviously. In addition to being one of the most famous professional wrestlers of all time, the Herculean actor has appeared in 40 films and counting (animations included) since the beginning of his acting career in 2001.

That seems like an insane amount of films in not even two decades... and surprisingly enough, it's been confirmed that they all share a connection by the president of his production company, Seven Bucks.

'In our business, the ultimate goal is everyone wants to create a universe, so if we can somehow, if there’s a master plan happening right now that you just don’t know. But maybe in about 10 more years, we’re gonna have our version of an "Infinity War," a "Dwayne Johnson War",' explains Hiram Garcia.

A little bit of healing

But things get more serious; as well as confirming a link between the roles, the President of Production makes a few more clarifications.

‘There very much is always a thread ... It’s always about a guy who’s somehow getting better, even just a little bit. If you look at the most extreme version, "Pain and Gain," even as that character, he got a little bit better somehow at the end. ... That’s something we do try to look for in our movies. There’s always a little bit of healing. There’s always a little bit of getting better, coupled with some kind of a family tie, something of heart.’

Skin to skin. Our mana. Blessed and proud to bring another strong girl into this world. Tiana Gia Johnson came into this world like a force of nature and Mama @laurenhashianofficial labored and delivered like a true rockstar. I was raised and surrounded by strong, loving women all my life, but after participating in baby Tia’s delivery, it’s hard to express the new level of love, respect and admiration I have for @laurenhashianofficial and all mamas and women out there. Word to the wise gentlemen, it’s critical to be by your lady’s head when she’s delivering, being as supportive as you can.. holding hands, holding legs, whatever you can do. But, if you really want to understand the single most powerful and primal moment life will ever offer - watch your child being born. Its a life changer and the respect and admiration you have for a woman, will forever be boundless. And to my third and youngest daughter, Tiana Gia - like I did when your two older sisters Simone Alexandra and Jasmine Lia were born, you have my word, I’ll love, protect, guide and make ya laugh for the rest of my life. Your crazy dad has many responsibilities and wears many hats in this big ol’ world, but being your dad will always be the one I’m most proud to wear. Oh and one more thing.. you’re gonna love rollin’ in daddy’s pick up truck. #TianaGiaJohnson🌺 #3rdDaughter #BlessesAndGratefulMan #ImInTROUBLE

A 5000-year-old story

In this way the Rock's origin story began 5000 years ago. According to the explanations in Men’s Health, the story begins when Mathayus avenges his brother’s death to become the Scorpion King. In "The Mummy Returns", Rick uses Osiris’ spear to free Mathayus' soul so that it can be reconnected to his body, rendering him immortal. Dwayne Johnson is therefore (in all his various roles) a being who has the responsibility of protecting Earth from all its dangers.

Which is understandable, bearing in mind the actor has never really played a villain in any of his films (except the Scorpion King) and always seeks to help others, whether as a good fairy, a helicopter pilot or Hercules.
