Dwayne Johnson Helps Pull Off Amazing Military Homecoming

Causes |

Is there anything that Dwayne Douglas Johnson, AKA the Rock can’t do? He is a feisty, yet loyal Taurus born on May 2, 1972 in Hayward, California. Johnson played football at the University of Miami, where he won the national championship. After graduating from college he played football for the Canadian Football League, but was cut after only two months. It was at this time that he decided to go into professional wrestling. Dwayne’s father and grandfather were both professional wrestlers. He gained fame when he was in the WWF/WWE from 1996 until 2004 and again doing random appearances part time from 2011 until 2016. Dwayne is regarded as one of the best wrestlers of all time.

It was not until the early 2000’s that The Rock decided to explore acting as a possible career. He stared in The Rundown, Walking Tall, The Mummy Returns, Gridiron Gang, Get Smart, and more. He has also hosted the Kids Choice Awards and was in the fifth Fast and The Furious Movie. He also recently started filming for the remake of the show Baywatch. On December 16, 2013 Forbes said that Johnson was the top grossing actor of 2013. He also took the honor of People Magazines Best Looking Man of 2016.

However, this holiday season Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was more concerned with giving back to others. The Rock and “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon pulled off one of the most tear-jerking military homecomings Friday involving one of the show’s staffers. Johnson announced that he didn’t want to leave the show before giving back to a military family, and proceeded to reunite “Tonight Show” producer Karina Kabalan and her husband Todd, who have been living apart for a year and half since Todd is a master sergeant in the Air Force deployed overseas.

Karina Kabalan had no idea she was about to be reunited with her husband Todd! Karina had been thrown for a loop since Johnson initially said it was a member of the audience who would be getting the surprise. Instead, while pretending to search the crowd, Johnson and Fallon made their way up to the show’s control room where they called Karina’s name, almost immediately bringing her to tears from being overjoyed. “What is happening right now?” she exclaimed before standing to greet them in disbelief. “I hear you’re a producer on the show and an Army vet,” Johnson told her. Karina met her husband while they were both deployed in Iraq, Johnson shared.

“I personally heard that you are the most amazing person,” Johnson added after Todd crept in behind her, “and we wanted to bring your husband home for the holidays. Turn around and hug your husband.”
