The brothers’ roar. A lil’ HOBBS & SHAW exclusive. Good times droppin’ sweat and spillin’ blood with my family, @RomanReigns who’ll be playing my brother in our FAST & FURIOUS UNIVERSE. I’m very proud of his focus, effort and authentic performance in our movie for his very first time on film. I’m also very grateful to spend this quality time with my cousin here in the islands as he takes life one day at a time to recover from leukemia. His perseverance and humility battling this challenge has inspired our entire family as well as millions around the world in our beloved @WWE Universe. Can’t wait to see the “Big Dog” return back to the ring – his positive & focused mindset to return is straight up next level. Til’ then, this sacred Samoan 🇼🇸 ground you stand on is nourished with our ancestors blood. Today, we nourish it with yours. #WelcomeRomanReigns #Brothers #HobbsAndShaw THIS SUMMER 🔥💪🏾 @hhgarcia41 📸

“I’m very proud of [Roman’s] focus, effort and authentic performance in our movie for his very first time on film,” The Great One said in his Instagram post. “I’m also very grateful to spend this quality time with my cousin here in the islands as he takes life one day at a time to recover from leukemia.”

Roman Reigns relinquished the WWE Universal Championship in October following his announcement that his lifelong battle with leukemia was continuing. The Rock and Roman have interacted on WWE television a few times, including Rock coming out to celebrate Roman’s 2015 Royal Rumble victory.

Dwayne Johnson has shared other photos from the set of Hobbs and Shaw, calling it “more than a movie to me – our culture & warrior mana is very real.”
