WWE News: The Rock shares his touching eulogy from Rocky Johnson's funeral


The Rock has shared his eulogy from the funeral of his father, Rocky Johnson, who sadly passed away last month.

WWE Hall of Famer Rocky Johnson sadly passed away at the age of 75 back in January.

The Soulman will be remembered for helping to create a path for mixed-race wrestlers to succeed in professional wrestling.

The cause of Johnson’s death was a blood clot in his leg which travelled up to his lung, causing a heart attack.

The WWE Hall of Famer’s funeral took place a few weeks ago and many wrestling legends such as Vince McMahon, Shane McMahon, Triple H, Hulk Hogan, and Ric Flair were in attendance.

On his social media channels, The People’s Champion shared the eulogy he gave for his father in front of his friends and family at his funeral.

The Rock wrote in his post caption: “Dad, you lived a full and meaningful life.

“You trail blazed and even harder, you changed people’s harsh behaviors toward a man of color. Paving the way for me, my family and generations to come. You loved us with the capacity of which you could - given all the givens.

“Raised me with an iron hand and a tough complicated love. A love that now, as a father and man, I’ve learned to refine as I raise my own children. I wish I had one more shot. To say one more thing. You were taken too fast. Slipped right thru my hands.

“But you were so loved, lived so full, defined culture and now you rest high. Peacefully. And that makes my heart smile. I love you and now I have an angel to call by name. I’ll see you down the road, Soulman. Til we meet again. Your son.”


The Great One said in his eulogy: “I wish I had one more shot just to say goodbye, to say I love you, to say thank you, to say I respect you but I have a feeling he’s watching, he’s listening.”

He also said he found out that his father had passed when he was pulling up for work in his car on the first day of his new production.

He said: “In that moment, I just thought, ‘What do I need to do? What’s the next thing that I need to do?’ And I heard a voice say ‘Well, hey the show must go on,’ and that was my dad that was my old man who told me that.”

Our thoughts continue to go out to The Rock and his entire family.
