Looking at the sheer size of the man and a career that’s seen him lend his natural physical talents to football, professional wrestling and then the silver screen, there clearly aren’t a lot of things that can keep Dwayne Johnson out of the gym. However, a huge hawk with a snake trapped in its talons would certainly do the trick.
It’s true what they say about ‘how the other half lives’, when there won’t be a lot of folks out there who find themselves trapped inside of their multi-million dollar mansion and unable to head safely across the grounds to their custom-built gym because a bird of prey is busy making sure nobody interrupts feeding time. The Rock took to social media to document his experience, and you can check out the video below.
As much as we’d love to see Johnson go toe-to-talon with a hawk in a battle for the ages, which would set him up nicely for scrapping with Aldis Hodge’s Hawkman in next year’s Black Adam, it was the safer option to remain indoors. Then again, we’re talking about the same guy who ripped the security gates to his abode from their hinges so he wouldn’t be late for work when he was shooting Netflix’s action blockbuster Red Notice, so what’s a bird in the grand scheme of things?
He probably deserves a rest day based on the succession of behind the scenes training photos he’s been posting from the set of Black Adam, though, which are enough to induce exhaustion just by looking at them. Hawk vs. Rock may not have happened, but at least we’ve got a glimpse of how Dwayne Johnson could fare as the next David Attenborough thanks to his narration.
