In case you needed more of a reason to love Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, he continued to be an awesome dude this week. The Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment History surprised three special kids from the 'Make-A-Wish' foundation with a private gaming event on the set of his new film "Skyscraper." To make things even more awesome, The Rock gave each kiddo their very own Xbox One X with the help of the charitable team at Microsoft. Dropping The People's Elbow on rare console collectors, these rare custom consoles feature The Rock's brahma bull logo.

Here's the official statement from the folks at Xbox:

16 years ago, Dwayne Johnson was on-stage with Bill Gates to help announce the original Xbox. We’re excited to be working with Dwayne again to show there is no power greater than X.

Yesterday, three Make-A-Wish children received the gift of a lifetime when The Rock surprised the group with a private gaming event on the set of his current movie project, “Skyscraper.” With the help of Xbox, the kids were the first to receive the world’s most powerful console, a custom Xbox One X, a full week before its November 7 global release. The custom consoles feature Dwayne’s logo, a brahma bull, and a personal holiday message.

Throughout the day, Dwayne gave children the VIP treatment which included personalized director chairs, a private tour of the set, exotic car rides and challenging them in video game matchups on popular Xbox titles such as Super Lucky’s TaleForza Motorsport 7Killer Instinct as well as other games featured in Xbox Game Pass.

Thanks again to Dwayne, Make-A-Wish and the crew on the “Skyscraper” set for allowing us to join in on all the fun!


There you have it. The Rock did it for the kids and in doing so became even cooler in the process. We can only hope everyone will be just as generous this weekend as the gaming community will come together to stream for the kids on Extra Life's annual Game Day! Don't be a jabroni and donate your time or money this weekend!
