The Rock Explains Why He Gifted Raw Star A Brand New Home

Dwayne The Rock Johnson

The Rock explained his latest generous gift of a brand new home to a current Raw Superstar.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is known for bestowing gifts to friends and family, and last week, the megastar posted heartwarming footage on social media of his latest show of generosity. In the video posted to Instagram, the Hollywood icon revealed that he has purchased a brand new home for his cousin Tamina.

Now, The Rock has expanded on his decision to purchase the home for his cousin, saying that she deserves even more and that he wanted to provide some stability for his family member after a hard life.

“She deserves a lot more. Been a single mom, raising two kids all while living the hard life as a pro wrestler – on the road, wrestling nightly for YEARS. I wanted to bring a little stability in my cousin’s life for her and her kids”

In his original social media post, The Rock also provided an emotional tribute to his cousin, real name Sarona Snuka.

Hard to explain these emotions for all of us as I led @saronasnukawwe thru her new door.
This one felt good.

Surprise cuz — enjoy your new home!! ❤️❤️🥳🏠

I’ve known my cousin Sarona since we were little kids growing up together.
Man this girl’s gone thru some tough times, but regardless of what life’s thrown her way – she was ALWAYS determined to break the cycle and become a strong and inspiring single mom example to her two greatest inspirations — her daughters,
Milaneta & Maleata ❤️❤️

Its so damn hard to make it as a pro wrestler.
And it’s even way harder to make it if you’re a woman.
Sarona (like many amazing women in pro wrestling) made her mind up long ago that she was gonna walk the walk and earn her respect in pro wrestling and make sure that the hard times she’s experienced were always her REASON to WORK HARDER and never let it become the EXCUSE to GIVE UP.

And that’s what she did.

And that’s why my heart’s proud.

Love you cuz and we always got your back.

Welcome home and we breaking out the @Teremana baby!!! 🥃🥃😂😂😂

A very special THANK YOU to our @bianca.a.aubrey & her company @beyond_estates for helping me create this magical moment.
You’re the best B!!

Both members of the legendary Anoa’i family, Dwayne Johnson and Tamina Snuka grew up in the wrestling business before deciding to follow in the footsteps of their famous relatives. A fictionalized version of The Rock’s childhood can be seen on the television series Young Rock, which was recently renewed for a third season by NBC.

One episode in season two of the series featured a major tease for a highly anticipated potential WrestleMania match for The Rock and another member of the Anoa’i family, the Tribal Chief Roman Reigns.
