Legendary wrestler, action actor, and entrepreneur Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson did something he has never done in his decades-long career: approve a presidential candidate.
The former professional footballer switched to Twitter to put his massive weight behind former Vice Presidents Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris.
Johnson, who considers himself a centrist and is registered as an independent, has embarked on the path to support her after declaring he met her and was impressed enough to officially endorse a candidate for president.
He went on Twitter and Instagram to announce his choice as a video of the three was also posted for his followers to see.
"As a longtime political independent and centrist, I have voted for both Democrats and Republicans in the past. I believe Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are the best to run our country in these critical elections, and as my first (public ) President's endorsement, I proudly support you as President of our United States.
“Progress requires courage, humanity, empathy, strength, determination, kindness and respect. It will always be important to be friendly and respectful to one another. "

The Rock highly commended Senator Harris by saying, “You were a lawyer, a district attorney, a district attorney, a US Senator, smart, tough – I've seen you in these hearings and I think you are a certified badass. "
“I am honored and thank you for it. That's a big compliment from you, ”replied a beaming Harris.
