Rocky Johnson is also a former professional wrestler and a man that is known for being very down to earth. “My dad, Rocky Johnson, is a minimalist. Always Has Been. Never asks me for much and over the years his needs are always the barest”, Dwayne Jonson wrote in his Instagram post. While some may say that a celebrity worth well over $200M should be gifting cars with a higher price tag than a Ford Explorer, it is important to make sure that your gift properly fits the recipient. For a modest and humble man such as Rocky Johnson, this gift is a perfect fit. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Buys His Dad A Ford Explorer for Christmas

The Rock has gifted Ford trucks to his family members in the past to include his uncle Tonga, who is also a professional wrestler. Johnson also gave a colorful story on Instagram about how his Uncle Tonga gave him a pair of purple shorts to wear for his audition with the WWE when he was broke and could not afford the right equipment. “What they didn’t know was that I was broke as hell and didn’t actually own wrestling gear - no boots, knee pads or most importantly… wrestling trunks. I went to Sports Authority and bought some bright ass white volleyball knee pads, called my Uncle and asked if he had ANY trunks I could use for my tryout.”
