Dwayne Johnson Breaks His Record, Obama/WWE

Ricky Giri

Dwayne Johnson’s latest film, Get Smart, recently passed the $100 million mark domestically. This is the first time that a film with him in a major role has crossed that mark domestically. The Mummy Returns grossed over $200 million domestically in 2001, but that featured him in more of a cameo. The Game Plan grossed $90 million domestically, and The Scorpion King did slightly better, with a $91 million domestic take. (Thanks to Frank P.)

Speaking of Get Smart, WWE headliner The Great Khali also has a decent role in the film. Between Get Smart and the last film Khali appeared in, The Longest Yard, Khali has not only acted with comedy superstars Steve Carell, Adam Sandler and Chris Rock, but also with wrestling superstars Dwayne Johnson, Steve Austin, Bill Goldberg and Kevin Nash.

ObamaFactCheck.com, a site that verifies and debunks various rumors about Barack Obama, has his appearance on WWE Raw a couple of months ago as their featured video on their home page. Normally the featured video is something recent, which must mean it’s been a slow news month. (Thanks to Pete Gerber)
