My dad, Rocky ‘Soulman’ Johnson was a trailblazer and became the first black @wwe tag team champions w/’Mr. USA’ Tony Atlas.”
Johnson even reminisced over some of his earliest memories and added that “As a little boy, my dad was always the hardest working man I knew. Now as a man, I understand where many of my old habits come from. Shared DNA.
“I miss my old man and wish I had a chance to say goodbye. Thank you dad for paving the way for me. For all of us. I will forever be proud of who and what I am. I love you. And I’ll see you down the road.”
Before concluding Johnson also penned a shout out to the WWE team and wrote, “* a special thank you to my entire WWE family who worked very closely with me to create this powerful tribute to The Soulman in honor of #BlackHistoryMonth.”
