Puppy dies


Johnson’s puppy Brutus dies after accidentally consuming a poisonous mushroom.

Another reminder we have to live and love as greatly as we can today, because tomorrow is never guaranteed. At approximately 11:15pm last night myself and @laurenhashianofficial had to make the painful decision to end Brutus' suffering by taking him off of life support and sending his soul to pup heaven. I held his lil' paw as he was finally at peace. As all puppies and dogs do, he ate a mushroom while playing outside with his brother Hobbs. This mushroom happened to have a lethal toxicity and within hours it was rapidly destroying his liver and immune system to the point of no return. I encourage all of you out there to be mindful of mushrooms in your yards, parks or anywhere outside your dogs play. What looks innocent, can be deadly to your lil' family members. Thank you Dr. Deckelbaum and Dr. West and the incredibly caring nurses and staff at The Animal Medical Center At Cooper City. We'll always love you Brutus.. and you'll always be my lil' main man and rough housing Brute. #RIPBrutus #WishICouldHaveSavedYouOneMoreTime #TheresPickUpTrucksInHeavenYouCanPeeIn

Saves puppy

Makes Statement

Johnson describes how he saved his puppy when it could not swim in the pool.

View this post on Instagram

Here's a fun Labor Day weekend story… We just decided to add two new members to our Johnson family. Baby French Bulldogs. In my right hand is BRUTUS and in my left hand is HOBBS. Bring them home and immediately take them outside so they can start learning how to "handle their business and potty like big boys". I set them both down and they both take off in a full sprint and fall right into the deep end of our pool. HOBBS immediately starts doggy paddling while BRUTUS (like a brick) sink heads first to the bottom of the pool. I take off into a full sprint, fully clothed, dive in the pool, swim to the bottom, rescue my brick, I mean BRUTUS and bring him back to the edge of the pool. He was a little delirious.. took a moment, threw up all the water he swallowed and looked up at me as if to say, "Thank God you didn't have to give me mouth to mouth!" and then ran off to play with his brother. A few lessons I've learned today.. A) Not all puppies have the instinct to doggie paddle. B) Some puppies (like BRUTUS) will be so in shock by experiencing water they will sink extremely fast so react quick. C) While spiriting to save your puppies life, before you dive in, try and throw your cel phone to safety. Don't keep it in your pocket… like I did. #BRUTUSLives #HOBBSCanSwim #MyCelPhonesDead #AndNoMouthToMouthNeeded #HappyLaborDay

Sideswipes car

Johnson side-swipes a pickup truck on his way to film a movie in Boston with Kevin Hart. Johnson relays the story via Instagram

You give me your info and I’ll leave you mine and I’ll take care of everything. He stared at me again, cocked his head sideways and said…’Uhhh.. Are you The Rock?’. I said ‘Yup’. He broke out into a huge smile and said ‘Wow, this is gonna be an awesome story!’. I started belly laughing at that, then he started laughing and before you know it we’re both standing in the middle of the street pointing to his mirror and laughing like two ol’ crazy buddies.

Comments on Wrestlemania rumors

Johnson talks to a TMZ reporter about rumors that he will wrestle at Wrestlemania 31 due to his recent appearance on WWE Monday Night RAW.

I don’t think so. No, no, I might get hit in the mouth, I don’t want that.

Muscle and Fitness interview


Johnson talks to Muscle and Fitness about almost actually fighting John Cena backstage and his interest in returning to the ring.

We just have to figure out what it could be and what the most ideal matchup would be, and who it would be with. Because I always feel like if I go back to the WWE, then it has to be bigger and greater than what I’ve done in the past, and I don’t know what could be bigger in terms of marquee value—in terms of value across the board—and to me it has to surpass what we’ve done.

Interview magazine


The Rock talks to Interview Magazine to discuss eating habits, beauty tips, fans and regrets.

Fans send me pictures of tattoos that they’ve gotten- of my face, a quote I’ve said, or of my Polynesian tattoo. It’s all love-crazy love- but it’s still love and I’ll take it.

Film Appearance

Johnson stars as Hercules, a demi-god and son of Zeus who leads his entourage and an army to help end a war in the land of Thrace and return the rightful king to his throne. When asked about his iconic chain binding scene Johnson:

It was a great scene to shoot and that particular scene was the scene I looked forward to the most, because it’s the iconic scene. It’s the scene that, if anybody out there is familiar with the Hercules and the mythology of Hercules, when he finally accepts… his fate and his faith by the way being the son of Zeus, well he becomes more powerful.

Associated Press interview


Johnson talks to Associated Press about wrestling John Cena again and balancing his crazy schedule never being too much to handle.

I never feel that it’s too much, because I’m aware of the plan. I put the plan together (laughs). But in that, comes really incredible challenges that require a lot of people to embrace the vision of it, to support it.

WWE Magazine interview


Johnson talks to WWE Magazine about stunt work in film and how it compares to in-ring action in the WWE.

 Both are grueling and very physical. There are many comparisons that I can draw between the two, but what hits home is this: toughness and passion. Both my fellow Superstars and fellow Hollywood stuntmen are incredibly tough mothers who are driven by an amazing passion to perform
