Goosebumps. 16yrs ago today, at WRESTLEMANIA, I had the honor of making history and breaking records with this man: The Immortal @HulkHogan. About a year prior to this match, Vince McMahon came to me and asked how I felt about bringing Hogan back to the @wwe and creating the main event at WrestleMania. I loved the idea and immediately saw the massive business opportunity for us but more importantly, giving the fans a once in a lifetime match to enjoy. I told Vince we should promote the match, ICON vs ICON and the winner would go down as the greatest of all time. Hogan did “the honors” (me winning) that night and passed the torch to me, as Andre the Giant had done for him 15yrs earlier at WrestleMania III. To this day, this crowd of 65,000 strong was the most electric and on fire I’ve ever had the privilege of performing in front of. They were ready. So were we. #ChildhoodHero #IconVsIcon #GreatestOfAllTime #WrestleMania18
Great summer date for our RED NOTICE - JUNE 12, 2020. This is the original concept idea from @rawsonthurber that all of our studio partners wanted and finally sold to the highest bidder: Universal Studios. The term “Red Notice” is a legit international alert circulated by Interpol to capture to the world’s most wanted criminals. Now here comes the fun part... my character is an Interpol Agent who tracks the globe hunting down the greatest and most elusive art thief the world’s ever seen. All I have to do now is find the one man - or woman - who can play the role of THE greatest art thief the world has ever known. This is gonna be fun. Thoughts on who I should tango with? RED NOTICE JUNE 12, 2020
We work hard and hope to get lucky along the way. Great hang time dinner with my friend and mentor Bob Iger. Chairman and CEO of the biggest and most trusted media and entertainment conglomerate in the world - The Walt Disney Company. We’re excited to make JUNGLE CRUISE together and build out from there. A tremendous leader, brilliant business acumen and high quality human being. Grateful to learn and tap into his DNA. Plus, he gets up 15min before I do every morning at 415am. I gotta get my ass in gear. #IgerDJ #MasterClassDinner 🍻
Cool news. Mark the date: UNIVERSAL STUDIOS declares JUNE 12, 2020 the official theatrical release date for our RED NOTICE. It all started at this dinner where the idea of RED NOTICE was first pitched to me by our writer/director @rawsonthurber to my left. Producers @flynnpictureco & @hhgarcia41 on the flanks. I’ll play an Interpol Agent who treads the globe to hunt down the greatest art thief the world has ever seen. You may recall this was the idea that caused quite the bidding war in Hollywood a few months ago, leading to a very big groundbreaking sale. It all starts with a dream, hard work... and lots of tequila. Save the date: RED NOTICE: JUNE 12, 2020 🌎
Cool gig. Flattered to be asked by HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL to share my experiences and philosophies about business, life and the power of decisions. Over the years I’ve built a global brand that relies on a sharp acumen of listening to the audience and especially listening to my gut. Be the hardest worker in the room and hope to get a lil’ lucky along the way. This was fun. Thank you to everyone involved and I’ll see ya down the road. #HarvardBusinessSchool #SevenBucksDNA
I’ve always admired this powerful woman’s tenacity and vision. Such a pleasure meeting you @jeaniebuss and thank you for the kind words below. Especially, the handsome part;). Best of luck and thank you for having me speak to your Lakers. Anytime. #Repost @jeaniebuss Just another day at the #Lakers offices! Seriously I was speechless. I am a huge fan of @therock ( #jumanjimovie was fav summer hit) but nothing prepared me for how handsome, tall and charismatic he was in person. Such generous of him to come and talk to our team. He is the #influncer I want influencing!! @lakers @magicjohnson #therock
One of my fav parts of making RAMPAGE - audience feedback. 🍿 🎥 Any film I produce/star in, I always want to take it one step further, roll up my sleeves and get face to face with our test screening audiences to see where we can improve our movie. I give a lot of my energy and focus here, because for me, the most critical part of the end game, is to always make sure I’m sending the audience home entertained and happy. Money ain’t growing on trees, so if you’re spending your hard earned dollars to watch my films, you can bet I’ll always be there having dialogue with you to understand what you need. Plus, me trying to be “incognito” is like putting a ball cap on an elephant. #AudienceFeedback #SevenBucksProds #RAMPAGE
The Kid drips up nice for @ballershbo. Jk I refuse to shower after my workouts on any day that ends with Y. Keeps my edge. #ScentOfALion
Don’t miss me and my stunt double @teamcoco TONIGHT on #Conan. Hilarious and always a good time with you my friend - comparing pecs and promoting #RAMPAGE.
Brothers Johnson. Always good seeing this man and admire his entrepreneurial growth as a businessman - and PASSION FOR WINNING. Thank you for having me speak to the team brother. Was good to “cut thru the noise” with them and drill down to focus on our daily anchors. As always, got your back. #Lakers #GeniusTalks #FutureNBAChamps
Now when I say bad ass, I’m talkin’ ‘bout bad aaaaazzzz. Wait.. hold on.. not that clip dude. #RAMPAGE #MonstersDontStopBigDaddy #NoFear #OhShit WORLDWIDE APRIL 13th.
Big news. Our RAMPAGE will officially be released in CHINA 🇨🇳 on the same day as the rest of the globe on APRIL13th. It’s a big deal because China is the only major market in the world where their government selects what US films will be be imported in. It’s never a guarantee and the list is small. My films have been strongly embraced in China over the years and I’m grateful for that relationship and growth. #XieXie #3GiganticBeasts #1TinyBrownBaldTattooedMan #RAMPAGE APRIL 13th 🇨🇳
Big moment. 🎥🍿🎬 Im pumped to finally show #RAMPAGE to @laurenhashianofficial & @bslater9. You spend years making a movie so it’s always a big moment when you finally show it to family. Can’t wait for you guys to see it. RAMPAGE APRIL 13th WORLDWIDE Ps/ Lauren didn’t feel she (or the baby) was prepared because she’s heard the movie is an insanely fun, intense roller coaster that gets a lil’ emotional in the end... she’s right. 😉
The admiration is mutual Linds! Congratulations on the Olympics and see you when you’re back. #HardestWorkersInTheRoom #Repost @lindseyvonn ・・・ Hung out with this hard working mogul on set of his hit show @ballershbo. Always humble and on his grind; someone I truly admire. Thx Dwayne 💪🏻 @therock #teamUA @underarmour
Late night grind with our talented @ballershbo director @chloedomont. Love working with her - laser focused and bad ass. She’s usually directing me, but here I’m entertaining her splendidly about the time I was abducted by aliens. Aliens brought me back, ‘cause they weren’t ready for this suit. 😉👽 #LANights #Ballers
Ladies and gentlemen, the true star of #RAMPAGE & my best friend, George. A gigantic albino gorilla (inspired by real life, one of a kind albino gorilla named, Snowflake). George is super fun, sweet and cuddly, even when he’s eating bad people and fighting other monsters. He doesn’t like it when I won’t share my beer with him. RAMPAGE WORLDWIDE APRIL 13th. 🍻
