When it comes to very popular celebrities, it is almost a given that there will always be conspiracy theories about them.

Dwayne Johnson aka “The Rock” Does Not Have A Twin Brother
Recently, there has been widespread speculation in the media and on the internet that the Rock has a twin. Dwayne Johnson, aka “The Rock,” is not a twin. Tanoai Reed has been mistaken for his twin brother by many because they look alike and have the same muscular body build.
Tanoai Reed is best known as Dwayne Johnson’s stunt double and both men, according to reports, are cousins, which might be the reason for the uncanny resemblance they share. Tanoai Reed is an American professional wrestler who was born in Hawaii. Until the release of “Scorpion King,” he was a stand-in for Dwayne. They’ve been together for about 20 years, especially since Dwayne’s work in movies became a focus.
Often times when Reed would fill in as Dwayne Johnson’s stunt double, he usually sustains injuries. Reed also revealed in an interview that he shattered his shin in 2003 and had to have surgery to repair it.
Both men share a great bond and have been together since The Rock’s acting debut in 2002. Dwayne had also taken time out to appreciate Tanoai Reed with a brand new custom pick-up truck for being the best stuntman and also very instrumental to some of his successes.
