This role is a special one and HIGHLY entertaining.
Playing my grandma, Lia Maivia will be the one of a kind, Ana Tuisila.
Cool backstory: My grandmother, Lia Maivia was pro wrestling’s first women’s promoter. She HAD TO BE tough as nails in a male dominated, shark infested world of wrestling.
She set the bar for tough business practices and also set the bar for how loving a sweet grandma could be to her only grandson - me ☺️
She was also charged by the feds for extortion, eventually deported, became homeless and lost everything in the early 90’s.
I was blessed enough to help change that hard time scenario around and get her back on her feet.
Her journey was unreal and can’t wait for you guys to watch!
Coming in hot and lowering the University of MIAMI BOOM 🏈💥 is ulilatukefu!
Playing at THE U - these years were some of my most defining.
The highs are incredible, but the lows were critical.
275lbs of upper body violence, attitude and clearly eating too much pizza.
And playing the OG original Rock - my pops, Rocky “Soulman” Johnson is the charismatic iamjosephleeanderson 💥
As you guys know my dad passed away earlier this year so this role is a special one and our first episode is dedicate to him 🙏🏾
My dad was a true trail blazer and broke color barriers all across our country in the 60s, 70s & 80s. One half of the first black tag team champions (with Tony Atlas) my pops was a bad dude in the game.
I miss him.
This one’s for you Rocky.
