Dwayne Johnson Throwback Photo is Possibly the Greatest Thing Ever

by at .

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson knows how to amaze us with his Throwback Thursday photos, as we saw with his mom jeans, gold chain and fanny pack.

How do you top that? You can't ... but he came pretty close.

Long before he was The Rock, Dwayne Johnson wasn't always the coolest guy growing up, as the star reminds us candidly and amusingly.

This latest shot from his teenage years is just ... everything.

"By the time I was 16 yrs old, I had already enrolled in four high schools across the country due to being evicted and lil' trouble with the law," he writes.

"I was also 6'4 225 lbs, rockin' a dead caterpillar on my lip (aka the porn 'stache) and all the kids in school thought I was an undercover cop."

"I looked like a mutated, yet handsome SOB of a man child."

The 43-year-old notes, "Plus in Nashville I was already hangin' out in honey tonk dive bars on Music Row and hustlin' cars from crackheads."

He clearly went on to make quite a career for himself, but he's never forgotten his humble, awkward and sometimes misguided beginnings.

All the more reason to freaking love the guy, isn't it?!
