If you’re still wondering why Dwayne Johnson’s the people’s champ, then where have you been? It’s Dwayne Johnson for crying out loud…
As if you needed any more reason to love The Rock, he’s actually gone and provided you with yet another one – with his super sweet Christmas present to his mom.
The Rock sure knows how to celebrate Christmas.
Scroll on to find out what he got up to.
Now, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of the most recognizable celebrities in the world.
With his staggering 6 ft 5 inches, 260 lbs frame, he’d be pretty hard to miss – but it’s his expressive face (and infamous eyebrows) that really set him apart from the rest.
He started out in the world of WWE, where he became one of the greatest wrestlers of all time…
This is where Johnson first earned his nickname “The Rock” – thanks to his ring presence.
However, he decided to try his hand at acting, knowing there was limited longevity in wrestling…
Johnson successfully transitioned his career into this sphere and is now as well known as an actor as he was as a wrestler, which is pretty impressive.
And when it comes to Johnson, we can’t pass up the opportunity to share this picture…
This brilliant image of him wearing a turtleneck, gold chain, and, inexplicably, a fanny pack, is a particular highlight that the internet loves to bring up.
Since starting his acting endevor, Johnson has been in a whole host of different titles…
Johnson is probably most famous for his performances in the Fast and Furious movies. He plays Luke Hobbs, an intimidating special agent and self-described “ice cold can of whoopass.”
He even made it to Disney…
Johnson voiced the demigod Maui in the huge Disney hit Moana – complete with an amazing song and rap which sent the internet into hysterics.
But we’ll always know him as The Rock, no matter what he decides to take on…
He’s one of the most famous wrestlers of all time and has numerous titles and awards. Despite technically retiring from wrestling in 2004, The Rock still makes public appearances from time to time.
So it’s safe to say Johnson has built an enviable career for himself.
Transitioning from one niche area and building an enormous Hollywood career out of it is no mean feat – it’s clear Johnson is a savvy businessman.
And just a genuinely nice guy…
For a long time, many have cited Johnson as one of the nicest guys in Hollywood for countless reasons:
The first being, he’s a great dad!
Despite having a busy schedule, he is always spending as much time as he can with his three girls.
Then, he’s always been great to his fans.
Frequently posting about meeting them on his social media.
And of course, one of thing that always melts peoples hearts…
He takes care of his mom.
He just seems like an all-round good guy.
Johnson is being recognized for that…
Johnson was honored with the People’s Champion Award at the 2021 People’s Choice Awards.
He has been being recognized for his contributions to the entertainment industry and entrepreneurial endeavors, the outlet reports. Also his commitment to supporting children and families in need.
Johnson was presented his award by surprise presenter, Jeff Bezos.
Introducing Johnson to the stage, Bezos said that he “is impossible not to like” and his “work ethic is unparalleled.”
“His achievements are legend,” he said. “His work ethic is unparalleled. He transcends all demographics.”
“He is impossible not to like and he can sure put down a lot of pancakes. But even with all that, the thing that really stands out the most? He’s kind. … You see, kindness is a choice. And what I admire most in Dwayne is his choice to show unwavering kindness to everyone around him.”
And when Johnson took to the stage to receive the award, he proved his kindness once again.
By giving his award to a Make-a-Wish recipient…
As if that wasn’t enough examples, Johnson has hit the news again recently for his Christmas gifts.
Yesterday, Johnson, like millions of us across the globe, celebrated Christmas.
And Johnson got his mom the best present ever!
A classic white Cadillac CT5! A luxury motor where bidding prices start at around $38,000.
His 73-year-old mum Ata couldn’t contain her excitement, hugging her son and smiling as she sat behind the wheel for the first time.
Taking to Instagram, Johnson wrote:
“This one felt good. Surprised my mom with a new car for Christmas today. She was shocked. She got a few good ugly cries in. Then once her grand babies joined her inside the car. She was overcome with pure joy joy. Hell, even Hobbs, my dog wanted to peep the whip with his new Christmas chicken.”

He concluded his caption:
“I’m so grateful I can do this kinda stuff for my mom, who’s had one helluva life. I don’t take any of it for granted. Neither does she. Merry Christmas ma, enjoy your new ride!!! And your Elvis records. We love you. You deserve a lot more.”
He truly is a hero among men.
