The Rock Comments On People Magazine Naming Him "No. 1 Reason To Love America," WWE Congratulates Him


"The People's Champion" is the number one reason to love the United States of America right now.

That is, of course, according to the folks at People magazine.

The longtime publication named Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as the number one reason to love America in the new issue of their magazine, which hits newsstands on June 28.

The Rock responded to the honor via social media with the following statement upon discovering the news.

“Thank you [folded hands emoji] Very humbling to grace the cover of @PEOPLE as the #1 reason ‘To Love America’ [red heart emoji] [United States flag emoji] I realize the things that matter most in life are the things that are right in front of us. Family. Friends. Mana [tumbler glass emoji] Happy Fathers Day. Enjoy the read [shaka emoji]."

WWE went on to congratulate The Rock on their official website with the following statement:

“He’s won multiple championships, sold out arenas, and smashed box-office records … and now The Rock is the No. 1 reason to love America according to the newest edition of People Magazine! The aptly-named People’s Champion took to his social media to express his heartfelt gratitude and accept the honor as he graces the cover of the newest issue just in time for Father’s Day. Expect to learn a lot about ‘family, friends and mana’ from the absolute No. 1 reason to love America when the people’s edition of People Magazine hits newsstands this Friday. Congrats, Rock!”
