Wrestling fans in attendance at WWE’s non-televised live event in Boston on Saturday, June 27, got a very special treat when Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson made a surprise appearance.

Johnson has been in Boston filming the movie “Central Intelligence” with Kevin Hart, but took time out for a brief WWE return, much to the delight of the Boston crowd. The Rock spent nearly 20 minutes in the ring with WWE superstar Bo Dallas, insulting him on the microphone and talking up Boston, before delivering his signature Rock Bottom and People’s Elbow moves.

After the appearance, Johnson shared video of his walk to the ring on Instagram, writing. “No greater feeling than completely surprising my #WWE Universe family by showing up unannounced at a live event.”

Johnson last appeared on WWE programming at “WrestleMania 31” in March, when he and UFC fighter Ronda Rousey attacked Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
