After undergoing hip surgery, Dwayne ” The Rock ” Johnson’s father called his son with one request—a bigger car. “My pops just had his hip replaced and called me and said ‘Hey Mr. D the surgeon really feels like I should have a bigger car since my hip rehab,’” Johnson wrote on Instagram.
“I cut my dad off and just started laughing because I knew what he was hustling for.”

We all got daddy issues lol. My pops just had his hip replaced and called me and said “Hey Mr. D the surgeon really feels like I should have a bigger car since my hip rehab..” I cut my dad off and just started laughing because I knew what he was hustling for. I said “say no more..I got you.. just go down and pick out what you want” then we hung up and hours later I get this pic. Lol. Hey my old man was a tough MF on me. He’d kick my ass from one side of the gym to the other for years. I hated it when I was a kid, but grateful for it as a man. Im lucky I could do this and thanks for the ass kickins. Thanks Shawn Burnett and Ed Morse Cadillac for handling business for me and finding the gold bow. #MyDoctorSaid #NewHipsAndWhips
Johnson advised his dad to pick out whichever car he wanted, and in just a few hours, he received a picture with his pops standing next to a brand new Escalade.
As Forbes’ second-highest paid actor on the planet, the wrestler-turned-Hollywood-heavyweight surely wouldn’t sweat it providing a luxury ride for his pops on demand.
