Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson drops the mic in 'SNL' promo

Posted on

NBC

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is returning to Saturday Night Live for his fourth hosting stint, and the Furious 7 star’s enthusiasm remains as infectious as ever.

Johnson and SNL‘s Bobby Moynihan preview the upcoming Johnson-hosted SNL, with musical guest George Ezra. He pulls out an early look at a monologue joke, reveals what his porn star name would have been, and even debuts a new wrestling-champ phrase.

Johnson even manages to squeeze in a reference to one of his other roles in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, but he proves he’d fit in just as well in the original ’80s cartoon.

Johnson will host SNL on March 28 on NBC.
