The Rock is a very generous person, and you never know when Dwanta Claus will be coming to town.

The People’s Champion surprised longtime WWE employee Harvey Wippleman with a new car. This came as a huge shock to Wippleman and The Rock was happy to tell all about this event on Instagram.

Merry Christmas, Bruno 🎅🏾 Love you, brother! 100% crackhead free 👹😊

My life (especially my teenage years) has been full of the wildest twists and turns – yet God and the universe had always found a way to put a few people in my path that would change the trajectory of the road I was going down.

Meet one of my lifelong friends, Bruno Lauer — or I prefer to call him, “Downtown Bruno” 😉 🤟🏾

My mom and I were evicted off the island of Hawaii and I was sent to Nashville, Tennessee to live with my dad.

When I landed in Nashville, I quickly found out I wasn’t gonna live with my dad.

Shit happens, plans change and that’s the way it goes.

Instead, I told I was gonna live with a guy named Bruno. Who at the time lived in a tiny room at a spot called the Alamo Plaza motel.

Bruno could’ve (and should’ve) said hell no, I’m not takin’ in some kid who I don’t know.

But he didn’t.

He took this punk kid in and we became lifelong friends.

Then ironically – about 9 years later when I had the infamous “$7 Bucks” in my pocket – I started my wrestling career in Memphis, Tennessee and AGAIN – had no place to live and Bruno took me and let me shake up in his trailer, til I could get on my feet.

And hell, when I was 15yrs old, Bruno even gave me his last $40 bucks so I could hustle a crackhead out of his car one night at a honky tonk in Nashville 😈🤦🏾‍♂️

But the hustle was on me, because when I took off down the road there was a SECOND CRACKHEAD passed out on the floor in the back! 👹

Wild times at 15yrs old.

Merry Christmas, Bruno and since you helped me “buy” my first car – I figured I could return the favor and buy you one that 100% does NOT have a crackhead in the back seat.

I love you, brother.

Your kindness and heart – helped change my life’s trajectory.

And when you’re ready to retire from “the business” you just say the word.

I got you covered.

We’ll go “downtown” 🤟🏾

Enjoy your new ride and give Walls, Mississippi my love and gratitude

Harvey Wippleman was there for a young Dwayne Johnson when he needed it the most. He certainly didn’t forget about the kindness that Harvey Wippleman showed him. That paid off in a big way this year.

It is a pretty incredible video, and The Rock tells the story of his early career with a lot of fondness as he and Wippleman take a walk down memory lane. All of this went down on the set of Young Rock.

The Rock bought his first car from a crackhead for $80 (he only gave him $40), and decades later The Rock was able to give back in a big way.
