  • -Oh, man, my favorite, your favorite.

  • Thanks so much for being with us.

  • -Thank you. -I appreciate it.

  • I want to say congrats to your daughter, Simone, by the way,

  • who is now going to be in the WWE.

  • -She signed her contract with the WWE, and, you know,

  • it's just -- it blows my mind.

  • First of all, I mean, what an honor that my daughter

  • wants to follow in my footsteps, but more importantly --

  • "follow in my footsteps" sounds cliche,

  • but she actually wants to create and blaze her own path,

  • which is just so important.

  • And she wound up being the youngest signee

  • in the history of the company.

  • By the way, so she's 18 now.

  • At 16, she was working her ass off quietly under the radar

  • in the ring getting thrown around

  • and, you know, all the bumps and bruises

  • that go with pro wrestling.

  • And she hung in there, and I'm very, very proud of her.

  • -You raised her very well, my friend.

  • Being at NBC, I got to say we are so excited

  • because we heard buzz early on.

  • They're like, "Dude, wait till you see

  • this season of 'Titan Games.'

  • It's nuts. We took it to the next level."

  • And man, oh, man, you pushed it up.

  • Thank you for pushing it up.

  • 'Cause this wasn't supposed to come out

  • for another almost year.

  • -And this was supposed to come out in January 2021.

  • -Yeah. -And so there's

  • a lot of buzz behind it right now.

  • A lot of people are excited.

  • There's been no sports on television.

  • We are going to be in -- and right now

  • we are slated to be the only competitive sports programming

  • on network television the entire summer.

  • So everybody is fired up.

  • -That -- -NBC crew, like champs.

  • And so that's that part.

  • That's the production and the execution part.

  • But then for the fans at home,

  • we went out and we got, you know,

  • as front line workers are being celebrated,

  • as well they should now, and we were able to

  • shoot this and get this in the can in January,

  • having no idea that this pandemic was coming.

  • And it's just kind of kismet in how, you know,

  • the universe worked that way where so many of the ones

  • who we chose after our "Titan Games" combine --

  • we have a physical and psychological combine

  • that they go through like the NFL.

  • And once we chose them, they wound up being

  • nurses and teachers and veterans and doctors and lawyers.

  • I mean, these just -- these front line workers,

  • and they are the best athletes on the planet.

  • We have UFC champions, Olympic gold medalists,

  • Super Bowl All-Pro, Super Bowl champions.

  • -Up with these other, like, kind of normal Americans?

  • -These everyday people, yes.

  • And when you take that human being

  • against this professional athlete human being --

  • -They both -- -They both do this,

  • and they do that, and it's just crazy.

  • I can't wait for you to see it and for everybody to see it.

  • -That's May 25th.

  • It's 8pm on NBC. It's a two-hour premiere.

  • Dwayne, before you leave, every guest that comes on our show,

  • we ask if there is a charity or something they'd like

  • to spotlight or highlight.

  • For you it was a little difficult for us

  • because you've done so much charitable work

  • that we were like, which one do you want to do?

  • And we started talking about Make-A-Wish.

  • And you've been working with Make-A-Wish for a long time.

  • -I have. I've had the honor of working with Make-A-Wish.

  • Make-A-Wish is a charity and a foundation

  • and a community of human beings

  • that I hold dear to my heart,

  • like deep in my soul and my bones.

  • And Make-A-Wish, this is their 40th year anniversary

  • of granting wishes.

  • I've had the -- and I did the math this morning.

  • And I'm horrible at math, so I'm glad I got this right.

  • I've been granting wishes, I first started granting wishes

  • in 1997 as a rookie in the WWE.

  • So for 23 years I've been granting wishes, and, brother,

  • it is -- what Make-A-Wish does

  • for these children and these kids

  • is it provides them with the thing that they need,

  • and they need hope.

  • And also it sounds a little cliche when you say,

  • you know, "now more than ever," but it's true.

  • Now more than ever.

  • And what they are doing, Make-A-Wish is continuing

  • to grant wishes virtually.

  • And I'll tell you something really cool,

  • and I always love sharing this because my dad passed away

  • in January, this past January, on January 15th.

  • And by the way, you sent me the most beautiful note,

  • handwritten note. -Yeah.

  • -Because you've been there and I thank you.

  • I don't want to get emotional right now, but I --

  • -I got you. I got you. Thank you, brother.

  • -Thank you so much for that, Jimmy.

  • I love you for that note you gave me.

  • And so my dad, in 1983,

  • granted one of the first Make-A-Wishes ever

  • in the state of New Jersey, and he was a wrestler.

  • At that time, wrestling -- he was a popular wrestler

  • at that time in the WWE.

  • But you also had Andre the Giant,

  • Hulk Hogan and all these guys.

  • And this -- we met this little boy.

  • His name was Bobby. He had no use of his arms and legs,

  • he was in a wheelchair, we had to pick him up.

  • And here my dad is, holding this little boy.

  • And that was my first experience and exposure to Make-A-Wish.

  • What Make-A-Wish did in that moment for me

  • as an 11-year-old,

  • I will never, ever forget it, which then inspired me

  • to work as closely as I do with Make-A-Wish.

  • And last thing I want to tell you,

  • Make-A-Wish and providing wishes for children,

  • that is the best part of fame.

  • ♪♪

  • We have the Make-A-Wish kids here.

  • It's a very exciting day.

  • Well, hey!

  • I want you guys to have the best time.

  • We're so happy that you guys are here.

  • I got some surprises for you guys.

  • So I know you guys don't have an Xbox,

  • but you do now.

  • This thing, it's like, I don't know, free games for a year.

  • -Thank you so much.

  • -The kids say that I inspire them, which is awesome.

  • But the irony about it is they have no idea,

  • no clue how much they inspire me.

  • This kind of stuff is easily the best part of my fame.

  • I'm lucky.

  • -That's the best part of fame. -Best part of fame.

  • -Yeah. -For sure.

  • Make-A-Wish. Yes.

  • -'Cause you always said, and I've known you

  • for a couple years now.

  • Gosh, we've known each other a while.

  • But you said it's nice to be important,

  • someone told you, but it's important to be nice.

  • -More important to be nice, that's right.

  • -I love that, dude. -Right?

  • 'Cause you feel the same way. You're the same way.

  • It's like being nice is the easiest part of our job.

  • It's the easiest thing. -Yeah, we're lucky, man.

  • Well, I'm so lucky to have you here.

  • Congrats on everything.

  • And on top of that, by the way,

  • the tequila is awesome.

  • We'll talk about it -- -Thank you, man.

  • -Some other time.

  • -I'm sending you more tequila, Teremana, to your house.

  • It's coming. Thank you for having me on your show.

  • -Bye, buddy. I love you. I hope to see you in person.

  • Best to the fam. -Same here.

  • Love you, brother. See you. -Bye, pal.

-Oh, man, my favorite, your favorite.
