Fans of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson recently had a meltdown on social media after the 48-year old superstar appeared to hint at an upcoming Fortnite skin.
The entire incident stemmed from his recent interaction with Twitter user Brandon Davis, who tweeted an image of The Rock-inspired giant float, which was created for the Macy’s Day Thanksgiving Parade.

Featuring his iconic Black turtleneck and gold chain look, Brandon Davis claimed that the float resembled a Fortnite skin of The Rock.
However, the real highlight of his tweet came in the form of a reply from none other than The Rock himself, who said:
Way ahead of you, BD 😉

Stating that he was already one v buck generator step ahead of them, The Rock seemed to be cheekily hinting at a potential Fortnite skin of his own.
Moreover, what further fueled rumors of a Rock skin that seems like a massive coincidental stretch, is Epic Games’ Creative Director Donald Mustard’s recent tweet, where he posted images of multiple “rocks”:

Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen the likes of Star Wars, Stranger Things, and Marvel all getting represented in the world of Fortnite, which makes the idea of an inspirational pop-culture figure like The Rock an ideal candidate for a Fortnite skin.
