Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, has hinted at an appearance on the CouRage and Nadeshot show, after reacting to a segment about him in a recent episode.

The organization recently moved to its new Cash App compound, where they've taken their production levels up significantly, with a dedicated studio for podcasts and other content.

On January 31, 100 Thieves shared a clip from the most recent episode of the CouRage and Nadeshot show, with special guests BrookeAB and Valkyrae. In that clip, 100T founder Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag expressed his deep fondness for The Rock as a wrestler, an actor, and a person.

Nade described himself as a “huge admirer of [The Rock’s] career and work ethic,” and said that he frequently goes back to watch clips of his “transcendent” two-decade-long career in professional wrestling. He also spoke positively of The Rock’s acting career, citing the 2003 film “The Rundown” as one his favorite movies.

“Is this all a pitch to get him on the show?” co-host Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop asked. Nadeshot responded “yes,” and CouRage followed that up by turning to the camera and saying “Rock, give us fifteen minutes and we’ll give you the world.”

Well, those fifteen minutes might end up happening. The Rock retweeted the 100 Thieves’ post, saying that the praise was “the kind of stuff that makes my cold, emotionless [heart] feel good.”

He also teased the possibility of an appearance, saying “Maybe one day I’ll pop on and we’ll all drink two or ten Teremana’s together.” Teremana’s is a tequila distillery that The Rock founded in 2019, launching in March of this year.

Even if the Rock’s potential appearance on the show might just be an excuse to promote tequila, it would be a huge get for the show. Since its inception, the show has had on numerous streaming stars like TimTheTatman, Pokimane, and Sodapoppin, as well as celebrities including Dillon Francis and Karl-Anthony Towns.

To end 2019, both CouRage and Nadeshot said they wanted to expand their guest pool to include names like Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins and the NBA’s Devin Booker.

One of the biggest names in entertainment, The Rock may have one of the busiest schedules in Hollywood. In 2019, he starred in two films, appeared in two more, and was a producer on all four of them. He doesn’t show any signs of slowing down, and one of the biggest (physically and figuratively) celebrities may appear on the flagship podcast of one of esports’ biggest brands.

100 Thieves hosted their grand opening party for their compound the night before, so at the time of writing this, both guys likely are still asleep and not even aware of the opportunity in front of them. What a way to start your day.
