Our goal with SKYSCRAPER was to help change the perception of people with amputations.
I wanted to be groundbreaking in that for the first time ever in a big budget Hollywood tentpole film, the main character is an amputee. 
The hero. 
Who kicks ass. 
I’m honored to have played the role and grateful to get such strong support and luv from the amputee community. 
Big shout out to my good bud and one of my main inspirations for my role in the movie, Jeff Glasbrenner @teamglas. Thank you brother and keep inspiring us all.

I work extremely hard but never anticipated (in my wildest dreams) I’d become the highest paid actor in Forbes’ history. 
I don’t have a Harvard MBA, but my business philosophy and acumen has been sharpened over time and thru failure. 
My goal when I was wrestling in flea markets for $40bucks per match (well before the bright lights of the @wwe) is still the exact same goal I have today - ALWAYS put my AUDIENCE FIRST. 
I have one boss - the world. 
Send you home happy, and I’ve done my job. 
I’m the dude who started w/ $7bucks. 
I’m grateful to the bone and hungry to the core.

Kickin’ this week off right with a big ass package of gratitude. 
THANK YOU 🌎 for the SKYSCRAPER love and supporting me in expanding my lanes and making the kind of movie that Hollywood just doesn’t make anymore. 
For the first time ever, in a summer blockbuster, the lead character is amputee. 
Not a villain, but the hero. 
And for the first time in one of my movies, the female lead is the one SAVING ME. 
Your reactions to the film have been fantastic and I’m grateful. 
Looks like we’ll cross $100M this coming weekend globally, with China still yet to come. 
Again - thank you, love y’all, have a productive week and it’s still a G thang baby 😉🤟🏾

Sometimes you don’t know the deeper meaning of something, until you actually FEEL what that deeper meaning truly is. Easily the most important moment of this entire SKYSCRAPER journey. 
Myself and SKYSCRAPER writer/director @rawsonthurber surprised a group of some great people at the RUSK REHABILITATION in New York City. 
We showed them our film and surprised them afterwards with some quality time, Q&A and our amazing Microsoft partners created and delivered custom X-BOX ONE X’s and very cool adaptive controllers for the entire group. 
It was a real highlight for myself and Rawson that we’ll cherish for life. 
I pull no punches when I always say, I’m the luckiest SOB on the planet and I mean that with every fiber I got. I’m grateful to the bone to be in this position and moments like this will always, always, always be the part of my fame. 
Love you guys and thank you so much for your time and we’re honored you loved the film.

Great to recharge the batteries this weekend, back home with all my girls and teaching this lil’ tornado how to swim. 
Took my shirt off and she said, Daddy I like it your brown boobies.. 😂🤔 Thank you baby, but daddy has pecs, not boobies.

Enjoy the movie tonight and make sure you hold onto an arm rest... or an arm 😈

Have fun!

That’s a wrap. Boardin’ the 🦅 after takin’ it to the limit one more time. 
This tour schedule was intense so you had to be on fire right outta the gates. Your pistons gotta be firing on all cylinders for every
Event 
Interview
Appearance 
Hand shake
Meeting
Performance 
Conversation 
Training session
Every word is judged 
Every performance is critiqued. 
It requires a certain DNA, thick skin and capacity to be “ON” 24/7. 
No one really understand this pressure. I can count the people on one hand in my life who do and still have a few fingers left over 😉🤟🏾
I’m in love my job and I’m the luckiest son of a bitch on the planet. 
The job is incredibly rewarding and equally, fatiguing, but the most valuable asset I have that keeps me motivated is 
the people. 
the audience 
the fans 
YOU. 
Every handshake, hug, autograph, selfie, conversation, laugh, cry and laugh again, that I experience out on the road with you is my fuel. 
My secret weapon that keeps this big, brown, bald, tattooed machine firing on all cylinders. 
Grateful to the bone. 
Love y’all and enjoy Skyscraper this weekend.
