Honestly, I didn’t know The Rock was homeless at one point.
He gifted a truck worth $30k to the man who took him off the streets. It was a heart-warming moment as he called up the significance his friend Bruno had on his life.
As a teen, The Rock had fundamentally bottom himself homeless. In Hawaii, his mother got dislodged as they were unable to pay rent so she sent him to Nashville, Tennessee to live with his father. When Dwayne reached Nashville, instead of his father, a stranger was there to receive him at the airport. He then realized that he wasn’t going to live with his father.
The stranger’s name was Bruno Lauer. Gave him his last $40 to support him buying his own car. When Dwayne started his career in wrestling as The Rock in the WWE, Bruno gave him a place to stay.
So, years later and after all his success, The Rock gifted a truck as an exceptional way to show gratitude to his friend “Downtown Bruno”. The Rock invited Bruno onto the set of his comedy TV show about his personal life. They recalled their initial times and how they have experienced so many things together. And after laughing over the “crazy times”, Dwayne also took his time to thank Bruno for all his support.
Your kindness and heart helped change my life’s trajectory
