In wrestling, he was the 'People's Champ' and in Hollywood he is the champion of the box office, but The Rock is a little unsure whether he will become the champion of the White House.

Rumours have been circling for months that The Rock, a.k.a. Dwayne Johnson, will be throwing his hat into the Presidential ring come 2020.

The prospect of The Rock going one on one with Donald Trump was so tangible earlier this year, the actor actually had better polling numbers than the current President.

The 45-year-old is yet to confirm whether he will be making the dramatic move into politics but at this very moment, he seems a little reluctant.

You might ask "why?"

He's got bags full of charisma, is very humble and grateful on social media and everyone loves him.

Well, the reason why The Rock won't be running for President is thanks to his friend and comedian Kevin Hart.

The pair first appeared together in the 2016 comedy Central Intelligence and have now reunited for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

While they seem to get on quite well on a movie set, The Rock fears that Hart would be a nightmare on the campaign trail and would potentially sabotage his push for the Oval Office.

He explained why on the most recent episode of The Graham Norton Show.

This is disappointing news but maybe The Rock and Trump might agree to throw it down in a wrestling ring instead, if they aren't up for any political sparring.

After all Trump does have history.
