After hearing UFC fighter’s $7 in bank story, Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson makes a pledge to assist him: “Got your back, brother”

In a move that could make even John Cena raise an eyebrow, Dwayne Johnson, revered WWE legend and Hollywood superstar, recently displayed his compassionate side by reaching out to UFC fighter Themba Gorimbo, who publicly shared his financial struggles, revealing a meager $7.49 in his bank account ahead of his UFC Vegas 73 bout.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s empathetic response showcased his own journey from humble beginnings, where he, too, faced similar challenges.

Dwayne Johnson, no stranger to the grind, took to Twitter to show his support, exclaiming, “This is f’n crazy! $7.49 in this fighter’s bank account. Been there, done that. I’ll be your financial tag team partner, brother. Together, we’ll conquer the world! @TheAnswerMMA #hardestworkersintheroom.”

Wrestling fans will recall  Dwayne Johnson’s own journey from the bottom turnbuckle to Hollywood stardom. Just like a steel chair to the face, Dwayne Johnson experienced his fair share of financial blows during his early days, battling with a meager $7 in his bank account. But he persisted, made it to the top, and now looks prepared to aid his fellow warriors, including Gorimbo.

While The Rock’s massive wealth and Hollywood glitz might suggest a disconnect from the struggles of everyday people, he continues to defy expectations. True to his wrestling roots, Dwayne Johnson understands the grueling path these fighters tread and recognizes the importance of lending a helping hand to those who share the same passion for combat sports.

Like a Royal Rumble marathon, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson seems to be in it for the long haul.

As Dwayne Johnson continues to dominate box offices, his philanthropic gestures and genuine support for fellow athletes shine as bright as his million-dollar smile. DJ’s ever-so-timeless tagline, “If you smell what The Rock is cooking?” has taken on a new meaning—a savory blend of success, compassion, and unwavering determination.
