For our big @underarmour commercial, they asked me if the back of my new hoodie should read “Wrestling out of Memphis” since that’s where I started my grind at 24yrs old. I said, no it should read, “Wrestling out of Hawaii” since my grind actually started when we were evicted off the island with no where to live when I was 14yrs old.
I made a promise to myself that I’d do everything I could to make sure my family never got evicted again. And at 14 the only thing I knew I had control over was my effort, so I got my ass to the one place I could give that effort — the gym.
I know it may seem fucked up psychologically, but every day I still train in the gym and operate my business like I’m getting evicted and my back’s up against the wall.
Not ashamed of it, because it’s who I am. My DNA.
You guys are gonna like this new Under Armour campaign.
I’ve never won a Super Bowl or a Gold Medal. And I’m not a pro athlete.
But I am the hardest worker in the room.
My “grateful” face as our lil’ underdog #JUMANJI is in the $1 billion box office conversation that is only reserved for superhero movies and big franchises.
It’s unlikely we’ll reach that 1B mark but the fact that we’ve come this far is enough for me to extend, yet again my heartfelt gratitude and THANK YOU to all of you ‘round the world.
Just wanted to deliver something big, fun and cool. Like me when I’m on my third shot of tequila.

Eagle (bald) has landed.
Shooting our big @underarmour campaign commercial today. THANK YOU to all the passionate people joining me to put in that hard work on this blessed Sunday.
We’ve been working on this campaign for months to deliver to the world.
It’s time. Let’s shoot.
I’ve been known to make some amazing drinks🍹but this Saturday night pre-workout drink might be a new star on my roster.
Water, two scoops mandarin flavored Carnigen, two scoops GlycoJect, one cup of Colombian coffee and an Espresso thrown on top of that for the kick.. and a lil’ secret sauce.
Tomorrow I shoot our new @underarmour commercial so I’m coming in hot and on point.
And the “secret sauce” is floating in the middle of this drink - which is coagulated Dragon’s blood.
Last training session before the big shoot.
Here we go.
A good start.
Lots of buzz and excitement about our new NBC competition series @nbctitangames.
Wanted to create a life changing opportunity for you to shine and win big.
But you’re gonna have to put in the work and physically & mentally COMPETE beyond what your think your limits are.
I’m personally selecting everyone who will compete as well as helping design and engineer every competition.
Don’t wait til the deadline, go to my bio now and take that first step to a life changing shot and becoming a TITAN.
Join me ~ DJ 👊🏾
We’re in the 4th and most important quarter of the game. Very pleased with our #RAMPAGE global marketing and publicity meeting.
The success of #JUMANJI is applying excellent pressure to the WARNER BROS marketing team to deliver. I’ve grown very close to many of these brilliant execs and they are hungry to win.
I’m a very kind man, but a very competitive and angry player.
And that’s all I want from our partners. Embrace the competition and be brilliant in the execution, because at the end of the day we’re gonna win some and sometimes get our asses kicked, but the competitive hunger is always the anchor to achieving greatness.
Reached a point in my career where my most important currency, is my time.
If I’m giving you my time, then you get me at 100%, fully committed and a passionate SOB who’s going all in.
So be protective of your time. It’s the one thing we can control where it goes and who gets it.
Thank you to the multiple teams of people who worked so hard to make our Super Bowl launch of #SKYSCRAPER a success.
Grateful and ALL IN.
Ps. I only know how to say this in my elegant way.. life’s too short and time is too precious, so do your best to never work with assholes.
Incredible to have #JUMANJI shatter FURIOUS 7 (and all Fast & Furious films) as my all time biggest domestic box office result — and we’re still going strong.
THANK YOU FANS worldwide. Luv u back.
Work hard, surround myself with good hard working people and hope I get a lil’ lucky every now and then.
Grateful to the core for this career milestone.
Thanks again for loving the movie and let’s get back to work.
