Dwayne Johnson ends feud with Vin Diesel, teases Fast & Furious reunion
Hollywood superstar Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock seems to have ended his feud with his Fast and Furious co-star Vin Diesel. The two actors spent the last couple of years in a reported feud. The actor in a new Instagram video has hinted at a possible reunion with Diesel. Dwayne in his latest Instagram post has thanked Diesel and his wife for congratulating him on his recent wedding and supporting “Hobbs & Shaw”.
The former WWE wrestler went on to acknowledge Universal Studios, his Hobbs & Shaw castmates as well as the entire team behind the film, before concluding his message with a shout-out to Diesel.
He said, “I want to thank brother Vin for your support of Hobbs & Shaw… What a wild ride this has been (since) 10 years ago, when you and I spoke and you invited me into the Fast & Furious family. I’m grateful for that invite. As you know, my goal was always, all these years, to come into the Fast & Furious world and help elevate the franchise in any way that I possibly could.”
“And of course, all roads lead to one thing. I’ll be seeing you soon, Toretto,” Johnson said referring to Diesel’s F&F character.

Vin Diesel played the character Dominic “Dom” Toretto, one of the three main protagonists of “The Fast and the Furious” franchise. Dwayne Johnson had joined the “Fast & Furious” franchise with 2011’s “Fast Five”. He also appeared in “Fast & Furious 6” and “Fast & Furious 7”.
The rift between the two stars began in 2016, during the production of The Fate of the Furious, when Johnson referred to some of his male coworkers as “candy a**es” who lacked professionalism. Johnson has already revealed that he won’t be starring in the upcoming ninth instalment in the Fast & Furious franchise. But there are chances of him appearing in the tenth film, which is still in the middle of production.
Fast & Furious 9, directed by Justin Lin, is set to be released on 22 May 2020.
