Dwayne Johnson’s Fans Celebrate His Hollywood Star In The Sweetest Way
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is finally getting his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and his fans couldn’t be happier for him.
The professional wrestler-turned-actor confirmed the news on Twitter early Wednesday:
A true true honor. What a full circle journey. So grateful and so many people to thank. See everyone there! Tequila on me. https://t.co/sBEIZhMDlC

Johnson called the accolade a “true true honor” and said he was “so grateful” and had “so many people to thank.”
The official ceremony takes place on Dec. 13 ― and Johnson said he would “see everyone there.” He added, “Tequila on me.”
His fans also reacted in delight, with one tweeter sharing this old clip of the actor talking about gratitude:

Johnson responded in typical inspirational style:
Thank ya man. I’m excited. Let’s keep working hard and enjoyin’ those roses https://t.co/F9x9kT62bi

Hundreds of other fans also rushed to congratulate him.
Many said they couldn’t believe he didn’t already have a star, while others revealed the heartening ways in which he’s inspired them over the years.
Some, meanwhile, were lightheartedly only in it for the tequila ― and a few suggested a new challenge for Johnson (Hint: It involved President Donald Trump). Check out some of the wonderful responses below:
Congratulations big guy!! You have inspired more people than you could possibly ever know, especially me- a kid from Podunk Indiana, who accepted your challenge 6 years ago to make a difference- now changing lives in Chicago. #hardestworkerintheroom #pieeating #peopleschamp

This is awesome!
While dealing with my own setbacks in life over the last few years (losing my fiancee in a car accident, suffering brain aneurysms) I've been watching how @TheRock slowly built and transitioned his own life from what it was, to what it is now.

I am so proud of you. I first saw you back when the @WWE was still the WWF. You've come so far & grown so much. It has been a privilege & an honor to be a part of your journey in the small way I have. I'm proud to be your fan. Your hustle, drive, & ambition are inspiring. ❤ pic.twitter.com/GUxWsIvHIl

And about damn time. Sir you’ve been my hero since I started watching wrestling & read your book. It taught me that no matter how bad things get, just keep on going & brighter days will come. Thank you sir & congratulations ⭐️ 👊🏾

Got this made when I was 6 years old. You’ve been one of my biggest inspirations my entire life. Hopefully I can meet you one day and we turn our shoes side ways & stick it up someone’s candy ass. #Legend pic.twitter.com/6ruG3yHMTR

Will it just read Dwayne Johnson? Or Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson? Or just The Rock? Or The Great One? Or The People’s Champion? Or The Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment? … Man, just go small font and fit ‘em all. Congrats, Rock!
