Moreover, ‘DJ’ has already shared a few posts on his social media handles. More surprising was the fact that the clip of his return took the crown in records a few days ago. As per our last coverage, the clip amassed nearly 83 million views across WWE’s social media platforms. But a few more benchmarks were shattered further, as it has now reached the 171 million mark. And now Johnson is crediting the fans for that.

Dwayne Johnson’s humility is unconcealed! The fact that he never brags about himself but gives credit to others does indeed make him a special guy. He showed the same gesture recently as he reshared WWE’s post that highlighted his record-breaking feat on social media. But his intention was not to flaunt his achievement but to thank the fans.

With utmost excitement, he wrote, “Amazing stuff. This is all thanks to the people. They break records, not me. I just try and look cool, not screw up and not cuss too much” No two ways about it, this is one of the major reasons why Dwayne Johnson is the biggest icon for not only wrestling fans but for many around the globe. Well, this degree of fanfare is certainly not new for a guy like him as the same was witnessed when he made his comeback in September.
