Rookie Ed Morse Sawgrass Cadillac salesman Shawn Burnett says he treated a strapping, but anonymous, old guy who came into the showroom earlier this week “like I’d treat my own father.”
And that paid off.
The tall, built senior with a cane was Rocky Johnson, father of wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
And it so happens the star of Jumanji and HBO’s Ballers series had told his dad to buy something nice.
“I didn’t know who he was for the longest time,” Burnett said of former wrestler Rocky Johnson’s visit on Monday. “We were just talking about things, life, not even cars.”
The 73-year-old, a retired Town of Davie employee and long ago wrestling star, then told Burnett he had hip replacement surgery and needed a bigger car to stretch out.
So the discussion moved on to Cadillac’s big SUVs.
