PARMA, Ohio (WOIO) – Staff and students at Parma Senior High School came to the attention of “The Brahma Bull” after receiving a video response on April 29 from award-winning actor and pro wrestling icon, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
The answer came after special education career technology program PACTS invited the former 10-time world champion to attend their annual luau and show off some of his best dance moves.
Johnson said he liked the video and the student performances, but said he was unable to attend.
“I’m there in spirit,” Johnson said. “I’m here in love.”
It was the first time in two years that the students held the dance because of the pandemic.
“It was truly an incredible and memorable experience for our students,” said Amy Popik, district spokesperson. “We are beyond grateful! »
The students created a special video where they recreated some of Johnson’s film and movie roles, asking the community to #RockToParma while sharing the video.
“He’s so funny and seems like a great guy, but we know he does a lot of disability awareness, so we thought it would be a great opportunity for him to come join us and have some fun,” Erin Austin, an intervention specialist at Parma High School, previously said.
“He’s also like a larger-than-life personality and we see some of the personality of a lot of our students reflected in some of his films,” Marie Santiago, another intervention specialist at Parma, previously said.
