Like everyone else, I absolutely lost it when the official video dropped on YouTube which showed my favorite Hollywood megastar making an appearance in Fortnite. The noise that left my mouth was something close to one only dogs could hear because of how high pitch it was. I immediately jumped to YouTube and cued The Rock’s WWE Theme song to do my best eyebrow raise.
Seeing Dwayne in action was truly brilliant, as much as I was hoping to see Dwayne slam someone with the good ol’ Rock Bottom or maybe even a People’s Elbow that didn’t happen; perhaps another hint that his wrestling life is truly finished but I digress.
I cannot wait to get the ability to play as Dwayne. His addition to the game will just be adding to a star-studded list of characters we have. Who wouldn’t want to see The Rock taking on Rick Sanchez, The Mandolorian, or someone like Travis Scott or Ariana Grande?!
Sadly upon further investigation, it appears we will have to wait an additional 60 days to find out just to what extent we’re going to get to play as Dwayne as well as have the battle pass fully completed! A difficult task as I have yet to complete an entire battle pass but I am more than willing to commit hours of my time to this just to get The People’s Champion as a playable character.
For those who have further interest in Fortnite, you can find my article on Boba Fett and his introduction to Fortnite here! As for Dwayne, are you excited to see him leaping out of the Battle Bus and into action like I am? Let me know in the comments below!
