He was asked how he balances between being nice and laying the smackdown. The 10-time WWE champion replied, “There’s a few things. I always try and find – make sure that I find time every day to be grateful for everything that I have. When you start off hard days finding things to be grateful for, it inevitably leads to a greater happiness. Every day I wake up I’m a grateful man for everything that I have.

But I’m also very quick to make sure when something needs to get done and you have to either articulate it to somebody else, and you to set a protocol, and you have to set parameters, and you have to lay the smack down you’ve gotta do it in a firm way.  I do it in a kind way but I also do it in a firm way.” added Johnson.

And when it comes to laying down the smackdown if anybody’s rude or if anybody’s treating other people rudely or unkindly, I’ll happily step in. And they don’t want any bit of this. Don’t let this smile fool you. Because it is 260 pounds of kick somebody’s f***ing a** around here.” finished the actor.

February is a special month for him as it marks the return of the revamped version of the XFL. The Football league is co-owned by Johnson along with Dany Garcia and RedBird Capitals which is headed by Danny Cardinale. The returning competition was initially owned by Vince McMahon in the early 2000s. It is yet to reach the heights that were expected of it. The People’s Champ will be hoping that he is able to turn fortunes this time around.
