Rocky 'Soulman' Johnson's Cause of Death Revealed By Son Dwayne Johnson

Dwayne Johnson is getting candid about the passing of his father Rocky.

The WWE superstar and actor took to his Instagram to share an emotional video, talking about his dad and thanking fans for their support.

“I just wanted to stop in on this very blessed Sunday to say thank you so much. Thank you. My heart is so full of gratitude. You’ve lifted my spirits in ways that I hope you can imagine,” Dwayne said in the video.

He later revealed that Rocky passed away following a massive heart attack.

“He had not been feeling well, had been battling a cold and infection and on Tuesday he had what’s called a deep vein thrombosis, which is essentially a clot in the leg. It was a big ole blood clot that broke free, traveled up his body, and went right to his lung, clotted his lung and he died very quickly from a massive heart attack, just like that,” Dwayne explained.

He added, “I lost him just like that, didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to him. I’d give anything right now to give him a big ole hug and a big ole kiss before he crossed over and just say thank you and I love you and I respect you. But I didn’t get a chance to say that, but such is life, as many of you know. That did give me great comfort in knowing that it wasn’t prolonged.”
