Dwayne Johnson is the first guest on LL Cool J's new show, 'Lip Sync Battle.'

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.

A snippet from his appearance hit the Internet, revealing one of the songs he chose is none other than Taylor Swift's No. 1 hit "Shake It Off." Watch the Rock get into the song's rap breakdown below, "channelin [his] inner #TaylorSwift" via some very well-timed body rolls.

The episode airs April 2. You can watch the Rock host Saturday Night Live with musical guest George Ezra on March 28.
