Johnson, who is slated to begin filming his next flick in Vancouver next week, took to Instagram Wednesday evening to share a memory from his time in the west coast city and the things he’s learned from it.

“Just got to show you guys this view – it is spectacular, of one of my favourite cities in the world: Vancouver, Canada,” he begins in the video, while panning to show the city’s downtown skyline behind him, covered in a haze at sunset.

“Look, I’ve dropped my blood and sweat in this city, wrestled multiple matches in this city, shot big movies in this city but one thing a lot of people don’t know is, I want to share with you guys is – when I was 22 years old, I came to this city for the first time,” Johnson continues.

“I was playing in the Canadian Football League, playing my first pro-football game. I was playing for the Calgary Stampeders, we were playing the B.C. Lions. I was so excited. Two days later, I got cut.”

Johnson said it was a “dream shattered” and that he was sent home with $7 in his pocket. At the time, Johnson’s “big goals” and “dreams” were to play in the NFL eventually, before he realized that it was the “best thing that never happened.”

“Because it got me here. So my point is – look, you’re going to get your ass kicked. We’re going to get the shit kicked out of us. You’ve got to get up, you’ve got to have faith that the one thing that you wanted to happen oftentimes is the best thing that never happened,” he says.
