Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Gives Epic, Spine-Tingling Intro To Super Bowl LVI
| Last updated
What better person to get Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles underway than Hollywood megastar Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson?
The former wrestler-turned-actor was on hand to provide a truly spine-tingling introduction for the biggest game of the season between the LA Rams and Cincinnati Bengals.
The Rock, donning a very tightly-fitted burgundy t-shirt and trousers combo, took to the centre of the field to hype up the fans inside SoFi Stadium with an electrifying speech.
"Finally, the Super Bowl has come back to Los Angeles," Johnson yelled.

"It is time, time for a team to unleash a soul crushing, unrelenting defence. A head-spinning onslaught of an offence and take care of unfinished business, right here, right now ... ladies a gentlemen, the champions of the NFC, your Los Angeles Rams," Johnson said from the centre of the ground.
"It is time, time for a team that has risen from the ashes. To become one of the most feared, dominant, absolutely electrifying teams in the NFL. Time to get their city, their first Super Bowl win in franchise history. Ladies and selectmen, the champions of the AFC, your Cincinnati Bengals.
"It is time, it is time for all of us here and millions around the world to bare witness to these incredible players, who will leave every ounce of sweat, guts and pride and legacy on this hallow field. Because that is what champions do.
"Ladies and gentlemen it is my pleasure to say, finally it is time for the Super Bowl!"

Unsurprisingly, the spectators in attendance went absolutely nuts after the epic moment and people watching from home were equally as impressed as well.
Social media went into meltdown with a number of people flocking to Twitter to heap praise on The Rock for his passionate and motivational hype-up speech.
I mean, imagine being one of the Bengals or Rams players trying to mentally prepare for the biggest game of your life and you've got The Rock screaming in your ear.
Would make you want to run through a brick wall, right?
New rule @NFL. When @TheRock is at the #SuperBowl, both teams should be required to have him suit up for an equal amount of plays. :football::raised_hands:- Trevor Noah (@Trevornoah) February 13, 2022
