Rocky Johnson is a retired wrestling pro who has so many medals in his cart which shows just how much of a success he was. Now you know where Dwayne got his genes. As revealed in Dwayne's caption, Rocky lived most of his life on the streets as he was kicked out of his home at 13.
74-year-old Rocky is now reaping the fruits of his labor as his son offers to buy him a new house anywhere he wants. When Dwayne first broke the news to his father, he said that Rocky found it hard to believe his ears.
In the Instagram video, the Rampage star explained that Rocky has just called him about where he has chosen to live. Dwayne's old man expressed his excitement but said he was also nervous. "
What the hell are you nervous about?" Dwayne asked.
At that point, words failed Rocky and all he could say was:
"No one ever called to tell me they were gonna buy me a house before and the fact that it's you, it's my son. I'm so proud of you and I love you so much."
The 46-year-old actor revealed he had never seen or heard his father talk like that. He got so emotional and confessed it felt "good to (his) heart."
Talking about how his father raised him, Dwayne said it was "tough love" although Rocky learned the hard way. The WWE champ used to get beaten and "kicked in the ass" and he hated so much at that time. But look who's grateful for all those "ass-kicking."
Dwayne said it feels great to give back to those who raised you. Speaking of which, he presented a new house to his mother, Ata Johnson, last Christmas. Rocky and Ata Johnson are lucky parents. Who wants Dwayne for a son?
