He added that he received an autographed book of The Rock from someone in WWE. That helped him during his stay. He also mentioned that the autograph was fake. However, he met Johnson at WrestleMania 19, but unfortunately, he lost the picture. He ended by showing his gratitude towards The Great One.
This heart-touching story caught the attention of Johnson. He reposted it on his ‘X’ handle and stated that he felt sorry to hear about what happened. He then promised to share his real autograph and also mentioned that he would send some gifts. In addition to that, he said that he’d be in touch and wrote, “Thank you for your service brother.”
