Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has shown the CFL a lot of love over the last few weeks.

First, he tweeted at Kamar Jorden, who was rocking a No. 74 Johnson jersey before the Stampeders Week 8 contest against the BC Lions.

And this week, he posted an inspirational message – standing in front of a TV playing the BC Lions and Edmonton Eskimos game – about his time in the CFL, his former head coach Wally Buono and how playing football was the best thing that never happened to him. So. Cool.

Cheers to dreams not coming true 🥃 Not an easy concept to process, but the idea that sometimes our biggest and most important dreams that DON’T COME TRUE are often times the BEST THING that never happened. I’m shooting JUNGLE CRUISE now and right before I get called to set, I look up and see a CFL (Canadian Football League) game on my TV. I do a double take and realize that’s the same field I played on when I played in the CFL. I do a triple take and see the very man who coached and mentored me, but ultimately had to cut me from the team, Wally Buono who is now head coach and GM of the BC LIONS in Vancouver. Playing ball, I was always the “hardest worker in the room” and did everything I could to make the CFL and then hopefully, make it to the NFL where I dreamed of having an All Pro/Super Bowl Champion football career. Instead, I was cut from the team, told I wasn’t good enough – and sent home with $7 bucks to my name. After years of blood, sweat, guts and tears, my dream was over. Fell into depression, didn’t know what to do or where to turn. Eventually, I picked myself back up again, said fuck this and refocused and committed myself to a different path. The rest is history. I’ve been there, so I encourage you to keep working hard and remember that sometimes our dreams that don’t come true, can ultimately become the best thing that never happened.

Buono caught wind of the message and sent a tweet to The Rock asking him to come to the Lions bench boss’ final regular season game on November 3rd. That got us thinking here at CFL HQ, ‘how can we make this happen?!’

We need YOUR help, CFL fam. Let’s get The Rock to come to a CFL game by using the hashtag #BringTheRockToBC. If we tweet it enough, maybe he’ll make his way to Vancouver this November (he’s already retweeted Buono’s request so we’re half way there!).
