What is "the Rock in a cameo"?

When I was reading a book, I met an expression of which I could’t understand the meanings. (I’m a Japanese woman.) In the book, a writer is selling his story to a motion-picture company. The president of the company was interested in the story, but he insisted that the story was out of date and it should be altered to suit modern taste if the writer wanted to make a box-office. (The story was about the Spanish Inquisition. The hero of the story was a prisoner, who was rescued by the French army in the end.)
Begin quote.
The president said, “As for the ending, we gotta lose the French army. I’m picturing a SEAL team, maybe the Rock in a cameo.”
End quote.
What is the Rock? Is it a person’s name? Or is it a title of the movie?
I thought that the Rock is a professional wrestler who also acted ”Scorpion king” in “The Mummy Returns”. Am I right? But there was a movie of which title was “The Rock” too. So I’m not sure which is right.

yea, they are saying that the wrestler turned actor Dwayne 'the rock' Johnson should make a cameo, or quick on screen appearance in the film.
