Dwayne Johnson speaks onstage during Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Sports Awards 2014 at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion on July 17, 2014 in Los Angeles, California. 

He got his start bringing down the competition on a wrestling mat, but Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has another kind of domination in mind these days, and it involves a stage and a microphone.

That's right, The Rock will be the first guest on LL Cool J's new show Lip Sync Battle, a Spike series based on the popular Jimmy Fallon sketches of the same name.
