“Uncle Wally” exchanging pleasantries with “The Rock”


BC Lions Head Coach Wally Buono and his grandsons took a great picture together with balloon version of their favourite character from the critically acclaimed film, Moana. This character is named Maui and is played by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, a former disciple of the aforementioned Buono.

It is well documented that in the brief time “The Rock” spent in the #CFL, Buono was a major influence on his life and helped to shape Johnson into becoming the man he is today.


After this picture was tweeted, “The Rock” was quick to respond.

Such a great story, proud to say that it’s roots were born in the #CFL.
