WATCH: The Rock shares emotional eulogy he gave at his father Rocky Johnson’s funeral

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson shared the video of his eulogy for his dad, Rocky Johnson, at his funeral service from last month.

Rock said, “Man, I wish I had … I wish I had one more shot” He continued, “I wish I had one more shot to say goodbye … to say I love you, to say thank you, but I have a feeling he’s watching. He’s listening.”

He said that he found out about his dad’s passing when he was pulling into work as he saw hundreds of crew members walking around and he got a call from his fire Lauren

Rock praised his father as a trailblazer in the wrestling business because, oftentimes, he was the only black man in the territory.

The video below is accompanied by the following caption:

“Dad, you lived a full and meaningful life •

You trail blazed and even harder, you changed people’s harsh behaviors toward a man of color.
Paving the way for me, my family and generations to come.
You loved us with the capacity of which you could – given all the givens.
Raised me with an iron hand and a tough complicated love.
A love that now, as a father and man, I’ve learned to refine as I raise my own children.
I wish I had one more shot.
To say one more thing.
You were taken too fast.
Slipped right thru my hands.
But you were so loved, lived so full, defined culture and now you rest high.
And that makes my heart smile.
I love you and now I have an angel to call by name.
I’ll see you down the road, Soulman.
Til we meet again.
Your son ??”

As you can see below, there were tons of wrestling personalities in attendance, including Vince McMahon, Shane McMahon, Triple H, Pat Patterson, Ric Flair, Roman Reigns, Hulk Hogan and many other big names that knew Rocky Johnson.
