"My condolences and thoughts go out to his family". "And he said", Well, "I was looking for words". "I hated it when I was a kid, but grateful for it as a man. Im lucky I could do this and thanks for the ass kickins", Dwayne wrote.

He continued to train wrestlers, including his son who went by the stage name "The Rock". Always a gentleman, I always enjoyed talking to him.
