Who is Dwayne’s stunt double?

Dwayne’s stunt double is none other than The Rock’s cousin, Tanoai Reed. Reed has been doing stunts for a long time. The two have been together ever since The Rock’s acting debut in 2002, almost 20 years ago.

Over the years, Reed had undergone a lot of injuries while performing stunts in movies. In an interview with GQ, Reed talked about the injuries he suffered. Reed said, “In 2003, I broke my shin. I’ve broken my ankle, I’ve sprained stuff, and I fractured my rib on Hobbs & Shaw recently. That one was tough because I couldn’t run or train for a bit. I could hardly laugh.”

“I had to really watch what I ate and put on a little bit of weight since I couldn’t do cardio. On Jungle Cruise, I tore my MCL, and I couldn’t run for two months. I couldn’t do any jumping. That set me back too,” he added.
