Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is one of the biggest celebrities in the world. While he’s known for being a huge legend in the pro-wrestling world, he also has a tremendous movie career. The fans love him for it, and The Rock almost had a run-in with one of such fans.

The Rock took to Instagram in order to tell his 327 million followers about a fan. An 11-year-old boy was apparently waiting for him in the lobby of a hotel in Hawaii for hours. Even though he didn’t get to meet The Rock, he left him a note, and the security placed it in the star’s briefcase.

The WWE legend shared his note, and read it out loud in a video on Instagram. The star also wrote a heartfelt caption in response to the letter. He essentially wrote a note to him in the same spirit the 11-year-old fan did.

To this 11yr old boy named, Troy Song – who waited by the hotel elevator for hours to meet me in HAWAII.

I’m sorry we didn’t get a chance to meet, BUT my office is trying to get a hold of your mom and dad, so I can send you a bunch of cool stuff.

Thank you Troy for this awesome note and I’m super happy that it made its way all the way to my office!

Have a great summer and I gotta tell ya – the fact that you’re an 11 year kid, who waited for hours and TOOK ACTION to write me a note like this says A LOT about your determination, kind soul and good hearted qualities.

Those things are gonna take you very far in life.

Tell all your friends in Beaverton, The Rock said hello 😁👊🏾

Enjoy your gifts and mahalo for the note!

Your buddy,


The Rock promised to send a “bunch of cool stuff” to the fan, as he left an address and a contact number. The fan even sweetly suggested that The Rock doesn’t necessarily have to reach out to him. However, being the gentle giant that The Rock is, obviously he did. The Rock never leaves any opportunity to show that chivalry isn’t dead.
