Cool Guy: The Rock Buys Uncle New Truck

The Rock revealed on his Instagram account that he bought former WWE and WCW wrestler Haku (aka Tonga Fifita) a new truck for Christmas. The Rock bought his cousin Tamina Snuka a new car in 2013 and I recall him speaking about buying his momma a new vehicle recently too. You can check out a picture of The Rock, Haku, and his new truck below. The Rock also shared a story of how he borrowed some trunks from Haku for his first tryout match with WWE in 1996. You can also read that story below.

Merry Christmas Uncle Tonga – enjoy your new truck! Cool Christmas story to share with y’all… Known my “Uncle Tonga” since I was 5yrs old. My grandfather, High Chief Peter Maivia helped train him to become a professional wrestler in the 70’s. Throughout Tonga’s illustrious wrestling career he changed his name to “King Haku” and became one the WWE’s most sought after “bad guys” and still known to this day for being one of the toughest and legit most vicious man in wrestling history. Years later and I get a call from WWE saying “Vince McMahon wants to see you wrestle immediately. He’s flying you to RAW tomorrow and you’ll have a tryout match.” I thought holy shit that’s awesome, buuuut there’s a few problems: For me, I wasn’t just having “a tryout match”, because I had never actually HAD a real match in my life. Ever. WWE thought that I already had multiple matches under my belt, but little did they know. What they also didn’t know was that I was broke as hell and didn’t actually own wrestling gear – no boots, knee pads or most importantly.. wrestling trunks. I went to Sports Authority and bought some bright ass white volleyball knee pads, called my Uncle and asked if he had ANY trunks I could use for my tryout. He said all I have is a pair of shiny purple trunks (purple was his signature color), I told him I don’t care if the trunks are all the colors of Skittles, I’ll happily wear them. When I picked the trunks up from him I’ll never forget the monster hug he gave me, look me in the eyes and said, “I’m so proud of you. Go get ’em nephew!” Here’s the picture of me wrestling my FIRST MATCH EVER in Corpus Christi, TX in front of 15,000 people – proudly in my lucky purple trunks. And the rest… was history. My Uncle Tonga is a family man, humble man and champion. Most importantly one of the greatest human beings I know. So we walk outside and I said “Uncle how do you like my truck?” He said, “Whoooaaa nephew it’s beautiful… I love it!” I said “Good ’cause it’s yours.” He was speechless. Thru tears (manly of course;) we monster hugged ’cause I’ll never forget what he did for me when I had nothing. Merry Christmas Uncle and ofa atu. #LuckyPurpleTrunks

    I had this uncle once…
    As a teenager he asked me to help him move out of his house to another for a few days. So I did.
    After working like a government mule for a week, he didn’t pay me a fucking dime. He didn’t have to hire any movers cuz he had me, plus he treated me like crap & all i asked in return was to hitch a ride on his truck for when I bought a new television and a couple of other things. After i helped him move I hardly could get a hold of the son of a bitch.
    My father had to call him & force him to grant just that lil favor back that would have taken less than a couple of hours.
    when he showed up he acted like he was doing me the biggest favor in the world. After that I didn’t see him that much because I could care less about him.
    Forgot about him & this stupid story for years until I recently saw him again at a Funeral and it was funny cuz the first thing I thought when I saw him was ” I hope one day somebody drives that truck up your ass mother fucker! ”

    * If you have good family like The Rock, then be grateful this holiday season cause a lot of times so many of us just have so many assholes for relatives.
    So here’s to good family members! May God Bless’em!
    & for those asshole relatives…
    ” Fuck You & I I hope somebody drives a truck up your ass!!”

    Happy Holidaysūüė°

    He should change his name to THE PG13 instead of THE ROCK
