Dwayne Johnson, also known as “The Rock” gave a quick pause to sharing posts regarding sitcom based upon the life of him and released a black & white TBT photo of himself with one of his wrestling heroes on his verified Instagram account with 220M followers.
Johnson clarified the photo which sees him standing alongside the legendary Japanese icon Tiger Mask, by saying that he was at 11 at that time, and he stated it was a big moment for him to meet the wrestler.
“He had no idea what this handshake meant to me, considering how much I loved this dude. But what made a real impact on me was how nice and kind he was to this little punk kid.”
Then The Rock thanked Japanese professional wrestler Satoru Sayama for being nice and kind to him when he was a kid, and he confessed that meeting inspired him in some aspects.
In the last part of the caption, he pointed out that he is looking like Bruno Mars in the said TBT photo, with his afro hair and facial expression:
“And who would’ve ever thought years later this little afro’d punk kid would grow up to have a TWIN little brother named @brunomars 😂😂🙏🏾💪🏾”
As The Rock stated in the caption section, a number of Instagram users jumped into the comments section to say they thought the boy in the picture was Bruno Mars. See below to view the photo, and click here to access the original Instagram post:
