The Rock Surprises Altruistic Navy Veteran With Heartwarming Gift

The Rock

The Rock might not be actively wrestling but he proved he is still The People’s Champion as he gifted a personal possession to a veteran of the US Navy.

The Rock stars in the new Netflix movie Red Notice alongside Wrexham FC owner Ryan Reynolds and a certain golden egg that recently starred on WWE television.

The WWE icon is known for his acts of generosity and on Thanksgiving Eve, Dwayne Johnson was in a giving mood as he held a private screening of Red Notice with freebies on offer of many brands that The Rock has invested in.

While this might have been enough of a good time, The Rock decided to go one further for US Navy veteran Coach Oscar Rodriguez as he surprised him with a truck. But not just any truck, The Rock’s own personalised Ford pick-up truck.

The Rock decided to surprise Rodriguez after hearing about how he takes care of his 75-year-old mother as well as providing support for domestic abuse victims, and is a leader at his local church.

On social media, The Rock detailed his plan, saying that originally he planned to give away the Porsche Taycan that he drives in Red Notice:

“Today was a good day.

Merry Christmas @coach_orod and enjoy your new truck [red truck emoji]

I invited fans to a special theater screening of RED NOTICE and I wanted to do something cool for all of them.

Free concessions, @projectrock, @teremana, @zoaenergy, @saltandstraw ice cream.
Free everything and a great time at the movies!

I also wanted to do something BIG… something MASSIVE…
something unforgettable for one fan.

My original idea was to give away the Porsche Taycan, that I drive in the movie, Red Notice.
So we reached out to Porsche, but they said no.

But I still said, yes [wink emoji]
I’ll do one better.
I’ll give away my personal custom truck as the gift.
My baby [smile emoji] [red truck emoji]

I gathered as much information as I could about everyone in the audience and ultimately, Oscar’s story moved me.

Takes care of his 75 year old mom.
Personal trainer.
Leader at his church.
Provides support and meals for women victimized by domestic violence.
Proud & humble Navy veteran.
Kind human being.

Oscar said it right, just before he drove away ~ it’s just love.

That’s all it is, brother.
Just love.

Go enjoy your new truck dude and Merry Christmas to you and your family!!! [fist emoji] [red truck emoji]


The Rock previously gave away a truck to Downtown Bruno, also known as Harvey Whippleman, after Bruno took care of The Great One early in his wrestling career.
