It was a sad day for everyone in wrestling yesterday after it was announced that WWE Hall of Famer and father of The Rock, Rocky Johnson had passed away at the age of 75.
Many have since taken to Twitter to pay tribute to former tag champion Johnson, including WWE COO Triple H.

Several other stars of the past and present have also taken to social media to pay tribute.
So sorry to hear about your Dad. He was always very kind to me. Hung out in Louisville when I was coming back from my torn quad. Laughed and he shared me his knowledge. Again sorry Dwayne.

I am so sorry @TheRock I can’t imagine! Sending you & you’re family all my love. I first met your father at a training seminar not long after I started. He came in as a guest coach for 1 of the days. He was so kind to me & beyond proud of you then. 😘
