Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is known for his charismatic personality, exceptional acting skills, and incredible physique. But did you know that he is also an expert in the game of Rock-Paper-Scissors (RPS)?
In a hilarious video that went viral in 2017, The Rock engaged in an intense RPS battle with his co-star Kevin Hart. The two were promoting their upcoming movie Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, when they challenged each other to an impromptu RPS tournament.
The game kicked off with a series of quick wins by The Rock, who taunted his opponent with trash-talk, saying “I’m the RPS king, Kev” and “You ain’t got nothing on me, little man.” But Hart was not one to be deterred, and fired back with his own insults, calling The Rock a “dirty cheater” and accusing him of using “spies.”
As the game progressed, the tension mounted, with both players putting on their best game faces and trying to outwit each other. But in the end, it was The Rock who emerged victorious, winning the best-of-five series with a final decisive throw of ‘rock.’
The video quickly went viral, with fans around the world flocking to social media to share their admiration for The Rock’s RPS skills and his hilarious trash-talk. Some even suggested that The Rock should consider taking up professional RPS, or that he should challenge other celebrities to RPS battles.

Whether he’s performing in the ring, on the big screen, or in a silly game of RPS, The Rock always manages to bring his trademark charm and humor, winning hearts and minds around the world.
