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.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
