Dwayne ‘The Rock” uses throwback fanny pack pic to share inspirational message

Wrestler turned actor, Dwayne Johnson shared a throwback picture of himself back in 1996 when he couldn’t afford to buy a bed and had to pick a used mattress from a dumpster .Sharing a side by side photo of him in the same outfit, he wrote:

When I took this iconic absurdity of a picture in 1996 I was one year removed from sleeping on a used mattress I took from a garbage dumpster in the back of an hourly sex motel. Couldn’t afford to buy a bed so we do what we gotta do to get by. You can imagine all the fun colorful bodily fluids I tried my best to clean off.
21 years later I’m taking the same photo backstage hosting #SaturdayNightLive for the fifth time. If you’re going thru your own tough times “used mattress” stage, do your best to have faith things’ll get better and always be willing to outwork your competition because you never know where life is gonna take you.
And ALWAYS remember to place a soft tissue under your left elbow as to protect the fabric of the cheap ass swag turtleneck that had you out here looking like a bad ass buff lesbian.
Oh and tuck the thumb in the fanny pack. Always tuck the thumb.
