In an emotional post, Dwayne Johnson says his father died following a “massive heart attack.”
Rocky Johnson, who was a professional wrestler like his son, passed away on January 15th at the age of 75.
In an Instagram video, The Rock said that he “didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to him. I’d give anything right now to give him a big ole hug and a big ole kiss before he crossed over and just say thank you and I love you and I respect you.”
He explained that Rocky “had not been feeling well, had been battling a cold and infection and on Tuesday he had what’s called a deep vein thrombosis, which is essentially a clot in the leg. It was a big ole blood clot that broke free, traveled up his body, and went right to his lung, clotted his lung and he died very quickly from a massive heart attack, just like that.”
The Rock said his father, a member of the WWE Hall of Fame, “went quick.”
