Will The Rocks new TV show bring him to Portland?! WE CAN ONLY HOPE
  • Will The Rock's new TV show bring him to Portland?! WE CAN ONLY HOPE

OH SHIT. The Most Electrifying Man in Sports All Entertainment™ is getting a reality show! Make my day, CNN:

Variety reports that the actor and former WWE heavyweight has signed on to appear in the new reality show, aptly titled, The Hero.

I don't even know what The Hero is about yet, but if The Rock is in any way involved? That is an apt title! Please, continue.

On the Survivor-like program, three teams are picked to traverse three continents in an effort to demonstrate their strength and heroism.

Hmm. Okay. Now that I know what The Hero is about, I think I could probably win this show. But enough about me.

The Rock will serve as a muscle-bound cheerleader of sorts, encouraging team members to keep moving when the going gets tough.

Considering The Rock is already my muscle-bound cheerleader of sorts—bupropion or no bupropion, there's no way I could get out of bed every morning without checking my phone for dispatches like this, or this, or this—I think this seems like a very good idea! Please, continue.

"While Dwayne's physical stature is unmatched, it is his uncompromising moral character and humanity that proves what an inspirational hero he is," said Ben Silverman, head of Electus Entertainment.

I could not agree with you more, Ben Silverman. I could not agree with you more. The Rock is also awesome in Southland Tales!
