Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson reached out to a paralyzed rugby player and... no, YOU'RE crying

Friday June 27th, 2014

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is many things -- a professional wrestler, successful actor, and most importantly, an all-around good dude. He's currently in Australia promoting his new movie, Hercules, but he took some time out to make a phone call to Alex McKinnon, who was parazlyzed during a rugby game earlier this year.

The Rock is a big rugby fan, so when he heard about the injured player, he reached out to Alex to tell him to stay strong, and that he's got the whole country behind him.

Fortunately, McKinnon seems to be recovering well from his injuries and the NRL have offered him a job for life.
