The 2:20 video tribute was narrated by Johnson’s son, WWE Legend Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Rock took to Twitter after the video aired and commented on how emotional the tribute made him.

“This one makes me emotional, but man I’m smiling with goosebumps of gratitude, mana and pride. My dad, Rocky ‘Soulman’ Johnson was a trailblazer and became the first black @wwe tag team champions w/Tony Atlas. Thank you dad. I will forever be proud of who and what I am. I love u,” Rock wrote.
