How did The Rock come up with the expression, “Do you smell what The Rock is cooking?”

All celebrities have personal brands, right? Hell, the average person now uses multiple social media platforms to describe to the world who they are.

Are you pickin’ up what I’m laying down?

the-rockLegend has it that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson once substituted “… if you know what I’m saying,” with “… if you smell what I’m cooking.” So, the catchphrase just stuck.

Guess it has nothing to do with his nickname as The Rock at all. Dwayne Johnson adopted that name from his father, who wrestled as “Rocky Johnson”.

So, there you have it. Your random celebrity factoid of the day!
