Days after the funeral of his father, WWE Hall of Famer Rocky Johnson, Dwayne Johnson sat down onstage with Oprah Winfrey in Atlanta, the latest stop on her Oprah’s 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus Tour.
Johnson, 47, brought Winfrey, 65, a special gift: the very first bottle of his new Teremana tequila.
Explaining that his new alcohol brand is “sipping tequila,” Johnson cracked open that bottle and poured some for himself and Winfrey.
Winfrey held up her glass, and told Johnson that she’d like to make a toast to his father. “I’d like to make a toast to the man who helped to make you the man that you are,” said Winfrey. “May your relationship with him in the beyond be stronger, more profound and bring you all the love that you always deserved.”
Sharing video of the toast on Facebook, Johnson wrote, “The Teremana tequila toast heard around the world 🥃♥️. Thank you to my good friend Oprah for your absolutely beautiful and touching toast to my late father, Rocky Johnson, who just passed away January 15. As way of showing my gratitude and saying Happy Birthday, please enjoy our first ever “world premiere” bottle of #TEREMANA. The bottle number is “1/29” in honour of your birthday. Thank you for our epic chat and thank you to your 12,000+ audience members who filled the arena with powerful intention, love and MANA.”
Winfrey also felt it was an inspiring conversation, tweeting that she was feeling a bit under the weather until she realized that “if @therock could still make it after burying his father this week, I was gonna be more than fine.”
