Makes sense to me. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been a superstar for a very long time, earning multiple wrestling championships and having many successful box-office films, among others. He can now name another distinction to this long list of accolades.

People magazine has recently named The Rock No. 1 on their list of the “Top 100 reasons to love America.” He expressed his gratitude with the following Tweet:

Appreciate you @people ? for choosing this big, brown, bald, tattooed T-Rex for your cover ? 

We shot this in my home state of Hawaii ?? where the positive vibes and mana were ever-present and powerful. 

On newsstands this Friday ? 

Enjoy the read! ??

In addition, People interviewed The Rock about this award and he had the following to say:

“It feels great. I’ve been a lucky guy over the years to have the career that I’ve been blessed enough to have,” says Johnson, who was photographed and interviewed in Hawaii for this week’s issue. “And things like this, I’m always appreciative. We’re here in Hawaii, where I did a lot of my growing up… I was just Dwayne Johnson, the kid who’s having a hard time going to school making his classes. I never expected in my wildest of wild dreams that I would ever be in a position to be on the cover of PEOPLE – and certainly not with this kind of title.”

The Great One has been entertaining for years:
