TMZ- America is a fractured country ... but there might be someone who can heal the nation from inside the Oval Office -- Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson!! That's according to Johnson's longtime friend, WWE legend The Undertaker ... who tells TMZ Sports he'd fully support Johnson running for the highest office in the land -- and won't be surprised if he actually throws his hat in the ring. "That man works his tail off and he dives in wholeheartedly in everything that he does and if he gets his mindset that he wants to make a run at politics, ya know what? I think he'll do it," Taker says.
The wrestling legend and world's biggest movie star doesn't have any political experience ... but let's be real, almost everyone loves The Rock -- so could he mend the political divide? "I think so. He's so charming, he's so witty, I think he can be the uniter that people are looking for," Undertaker tells us.
Taker continues ... "I don't know man, there's so many possibilities and if that's what he chooses to do, I'll support wholeheartedly in his efforts to do so."
I know this won't surprise many people, but I don't have much of an idea how running for President works. I imagine you have to get the support of some super politically connected people, lock up a few of the major players with huge wallets, and kiss babies of some common folk in order to have even an outside chance to simply ending up on the ballot one day.
However, all that goes out the window if you get the endorsement of The Dead Man. Not just because based on their times as Main Eventers as well as the sheer length of The Undertaker's career, I would say that nobody has taken more Rock Bottoms and People's Elbows than Taker. If after all that violence and feuding, he still thinks The Rock should be the leader of the free world, that is more important than what any polls could tell me. How many Presidents do you think The Undertaker has lived through anyway? The answer is all of them. Death is eternal and was extremely present as Baby America was birthed following the Revolutionary War. If The Undertaker has seen every President to ever grace this nation and believe that The Rock would be qualified to be one, then I trust his opinion over any career politician or talking head on a news station.
