Dwayne The Rock Johnson is a man of many tastes, but when it comes to cities, there is no question about it – Vancouver is his No.1. He showed this to everybody on Instagram sometime last week when he posted a vid of a personal story about his connection to Vancouver. As it turns out Dwayne is in town filming his new action blockbuster called Skyscraper, and he used that opportunity to record the English Bay from a balcony overlooking it.

One of Dwayne’s lines from the vid “I’ve got to show you guys this view, it is spectacular, of one of my favourite cities in the world, Vancouver, Canada” undoubtedly show just how much love he has for the place. This is mainly because he has had “shed blood and sweat” here during his multiple wrestling matches as well as film shoots.

But do not think that this is the thing that actually ties him to Vancouver, no! The thing that will always connect him to the city is the time he played NFL. Johnson explained “One thing a lot of people don’t know, that I want to share with you guys, is when I was 22 years old, I came to this city for the first time, I was playing in the Canadian Football League, playing my first pro football game. I was playing for the Calgary Stampeders, we were playing the BC Lions, I was so excited. Two days later I got cut, dreams shattered, sent home with seven bucks in my pocket.”

When the dream of playing in NFL shattered like glass, this superstar turned to something else, thank God, and it was WWE and later on acting. At first, he looked at the entire situation with a whole lot of regret and sorrow, but years later, when he looks at that now from a king’s throne he sees that as “…the best thing that never happened, because it got me here.” You know Dwayne has a lot of deep thoughts and life lessons he wants the world to know, and this time he has one as well – the one thing we think we want, may turn out to be the wrong path, so according to Dwayne “just have faith, and just keep that in mind and keep plugging away.”

Johnson’s new “hostage-action-thriller set in China,” according to IMDB, will be released in 2018 and besides Dwayne, in the Skyscraper, you will also see Neve Campbell and Pablo Schreiber.

My name is Miloš Kalajdžić and I come from Brčko DC in Bosnia. I was born on July 20 th 1988 and so far I obtained a BSc in economics and one year of working experience in my field of study. I am a very hard-working person who leaves nothing unfinished and halfway done. When I commit to something I give my best to make sure that everything is done the way as it is supposed to be. I like cars and everything that comes with them. My passion are American muscle cars, but unfortunately the closest I managed to come near one is behind my laptop watching an image of the new Chevy or Dodge and writing about it. But that’s ok I’m still optimistic. When I’m not behind the laptop writing I’m on the streets and auto shows admiring all stuff rolling on four wheels being propelled by a petrol engine!
