Dwayne (does he still go by The Rock?) Johnson is new ambassador for diabetes.

Dwayne promotes activity!

Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson is the newest ambassador to bring diabetes awareness to the forefront.

Dwayne's statement regarding his new position:

"I'm honored to serve as an ambassador to the Diabetes Aware campaign, and I want to encourage families to be active and eat right. Small steps can go a long way in managing diabetes, its complications, and raising healthy, active children."

I'd MUCH rather listen (and look at) Dwayne than that dorky Jonas kid, Nick.

Yeah, I said it.

He doesn't go by "The Rock" because if he went by "The Rock", Vince McMahon would own a piece of every movie he was in. So he had to decide, go by the cooler name "The Rock" and lose some money every time or go by his real, dorkier name Dwayne. I think he made the right choice.

Totally. I had a feeling that was the deal. Everyone wants a piece of the pie.

If you look in the credits of his early movies where he's credited as "The Rock", you'll see Vince's name as an executive producer. The story goes the only reason he's there is because the WWE has the rights to "The Rock" name, so if he goes by that name, Vince becomes a producer to get a slice. He may be shifty sometimes, and many may not like his product, but Vince is one slick businessman.
