Dwayne Johnson got the Toronto Maple Leafs chant wrong on Thursday night, but fans didn’t mind in the slightest.
The Rock made a surprise appearance during Thursday’s home opener, which saw the Leafs beat the Washington Capitals 3-2.
The actor was seen on camera bursting through the tunnel donning a Leafs jersey, saying: “What’s up Toronto? We’re gonna do this right. Here we go.”
He then started a “Let’s go Leafs” chant; different from the usual “Go Leafs Go” one. However, fans in the Scotiabank Arena quickly got on board and joined in with him.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson gets the @MapleLeafs fans hype in Toronto. 🤘

Can The Rock skate, and if so, is he available to play goal?

The Rock could literally start any chat and nobody would have the guts to correct him and understandably so. https://t.co/C0vT4jHelh

Look, if The Rock says it’s Let’s Go Leafs? It’s Leafs Go Leafs now.
I don’t make the rules. https://t.co/2Uqr1hcRsP

If the Rock says it’s “Let’s Go Leafs”, that is the new chant. They won’t change the damn goal song, so we might as well change something!

Johnson later took to Twitter to thank Toronto “for the passion, energy and mana.”
