The Rock was on an impressive run since his return to WWE earlier this year, with his heel persona receiving acclaim as one of the best of his career. It’s important to not forget that he is a Hollywood megastar as well, and it appears he has been awarded the Spirit of The Industry Award for his work in Hollywood.

The Final Boss received the Spirit of the Industry Award. In an Instagram post today, he expressed gratitude to Disney, NATO, and CinemaCon for the prestigious honor. Johnson becomes only the third person to receive this award, following in the footsteps of the legendary Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas.

During his acceptance speech, the 51-year-old star expressed his gratitude to the industry for the award and shared that entertaining audiences is a passion close to his heart. He thanked everyone for the opportunity to share stories with people worldwide and pledged to continue delivering exciting theatrical experiences through his work. The People’s Champ is currently involved in upcoming projects such as Red One and Moana 2.

”They say, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.


When you’re the Final Boss – none of the that s*** stays in Vegas 🎲😈🥃😂

THANK YOU @DISNEY & @CINEMACON Global Theatrical Exhibitors for this amazing Spirit of the Industry Award.

As artists and filmmakers our main priority will always be to create the most THRILLING THEATRICAL EXPERIENCE we can for audiences around the world.

Telling stories is an honor.
Delivering those stories to the world – is a privilege.

Whether an OPPENHEIMER or a MOANA 2,
the EXPERIENCE we deliver lasts a lifetime.

And what an experience I was able to have in Vegas with this incredible audience and my partners and colleagues.

Thank you so much and LET’S SHOOT 🎥🥃”

The Rock was also recently spotted doing special dance while promoting Moana 2. On the other hand, The Rock is also eyeing return at WrestleMania 41, so we’ll have to see whether The Rock’s star power will increase till then.
